Dr. Scott Weese, a veterinary infectious disease specialist in the Ontario Veterinary College (OVC), discussed with The Washington Post an unidentified virus outbreak killing dogs in Michigan. 

Weese said the virus is likely due to a parvovirus strain, adding the outbreak is “just our normal suspects doing their normal things or doing something a little different.”  

Weese is a professor in the Department of Pathobiology, the chief of infection control at OVC, and the director of the Centre for Public Health and Zoonoses. He researches infections in animals, emerging infectious diseases and infection control.
