Two types of viral enteritis of dogs recently recognized (February 1978) in the USA are described. The viruses, a corona-like virus and a parvo-like virus, are distinct but the diseases in a particular outbreak are often similar so that laboratory diagnosis is required. The parvovirus infection generally is more severe with leukopenia (relative lymphopenia) a most prominent feature.
