    Title says it all. Is the parvovirus that effects dogs transmissible to pigs?

    Thanks in advance for any info!

    Good question... my guess is no. I know in the vet clinic I worked at we never worried about cats getting it.

    This appears to be the general consensus.PPV and CPV are 2 distinct and different strains and do not appear to be transmissable between species.Got the same responses back from both our normal vet and our farm vet after I posted.
