Canine coronavirus is a highly contagious intestinal infection specific to dogs, especially puppies. Coronavirus usually is short in duration, two to ten days in most dogs, and may cause considerable abdominal discomfort. Generally, it is considered a relatively mild disease with sporadic symptoms, or no symptoms at all. If the coronavirus infection occurs concurrently with other viruses, for instance canine parvo infection or another intestinal enteric infection, the disease may be more serious. Some deaths have been reported in susceptible pups since they do not have a fully developed immune system.
