There have been recent cases of canine distemper in dogs in the Waterberg, and this is now spreading to our wild populations of predators, jeopardising their survival. Please be a responsible pet owner and vaccinate your pets. Canine distemper is a EXTREMELY CONTAGIOUS and often fatal disease caused by a virus. It is the leading killer of dogs worldwide. 50% of dogs and 80% of puppies usually die if infected.
