Canine parvovirus (CPV) is the leading cause of gastroenteritis associated mortality in puppies particularly of less than six months age. Canine parvovirus -2 and its subtypes CPV-2a, 2b and 2c are the etiological factors responsible for haemorrhagic gastroenteritis and myocarditis in puppies. Erythema multiformae, cutaneous clinical manifestations of CPV infection was reported in one Labrador puppy and convalescence complications of CPV infection like intestinal intussusception and rectal prolapse were reported in a Kanni and non descript puppy respectively in this study.
