Parvo Poop Smell: 5 Ways To Recognize It

The Cause Of The Smell

Canine Parvovirus is a virus that infects the gastrointestinal tract and causes the intestinal wall to slowly fall apart if not treated in time.

Metal-Like Smell

If there is blood and intestinal lining in the feces, then it will smell like your dog just pooped out a sheet of metal.

It Does Not Go Away

The smell of Parvovirus will, most likely, refuse to go away even after cleaning.

Vomit Smells The Same

The smells are not exclusive to poop and vomit can smell very rancid too.

Colorful Discontent

With parvovirus, the diarrhea will probably have clots or liquid blood in it or even pieces of the large intestine wall.
