SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

We have information important to your dog's health.

Animal experts at Springfield's Thomas J. O'Connor Adoption Center want to warn pet owners of a rampant disease hitting the area.

TJO officials say the canine parvovirus is impacting dogs in the Springfield area.

More than 20 local cases have been officially reported to the state since last month.

Symptoms include vomiting, fever and abdominal pain.

If you notice these symptoms in your dog, bring them to the vet for immediate care.

Animal experts say the disease is entirely preventable with a vaccine.

On another, note the dog shown in the photo named Boomerang is up for adoption at their Springfield facility.
