CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) – The Conway Dog Park is back open after a report of a dog there having parvovirus.

The dog park at 1700 New Road in Conway was closed on Monday so that crews could clean it thoroughly and replace dog water bowls.

City of Conway spokesperson Taylor Newell said the dog park itself did not have the parvovirus, but a dog that went there may have had it and another owner failed to pick up after their dog.

Newell said dogs are supposed to be vaccinated against the virus, and that is what helps to protect other dogs from getting it. It is encouraged that dog owners get their pets vaccinated before taking them to any dog park or in any public place.
