Which are the main clinical findings in dogs with Parvovirus?
Clinical signs of parvoviral enteritis generally develop within 5–7 days of infection but can range from 2–14 days. Initial clinical signs may be nonspecific (eg, lethargy, anorexia, fever) with progression to vomiting and hemorrhagic small-bowel diarrhea within 24–48 hours. Approximately 25% of dogs may have nonhemorrhagic diarrhea. Physical examination findings can include depression, fever, dehydration, and intestinal loops that are dilated and fluid filled. Abdominal pain warrants further investigation to exclude the potential complication of intussusception. Severely affected animals may present collapsed with prolonged capillary refill time, poor pulse quality, tachycardia, and hypothermia—signs potentially consistent with septic shock. Although CPV-associated leukoencephalomalacia has been reported, CNS signs are more commonly attributable to hypoglycemia, sepsis, or acid-base and electrolyte abnormalities. Inapparent or subclinical infection is common.

What happens to a food when it undergoes a Maillard reaction?
It turns brown. When non-starchy foods like nuts or meat turn brown, the process is known as a Maillard reaction. The same process in starchy or sugary foods often results in caramelization.
