I vaccinated one pup out of a litter with the 5 in 1 vaccination that contains the parvo vaccine. Can the rest of the pups get parvo from the vaccinated pup?

My sister's dog was around another dog that had parvo, she is 4 years old and is having puppies. Please tell me what could happen to mother and puppies when the pups are born?

With such a serious disease, please don't waste your time (or the dog's and puppies' time) asking a question like this on Thriftyfun. Talk to a vet about this immediately. (12/17/2009)
I agree with ahastings. Parvo is extremely infectious, best to assume no dog is immune, and best to assume your sister's dog is at higher risk than male and fixed female dogs, since she's pregnant. Get her to the vet stat. (12/17/2009)
Parvo is a intestinal virus that is deadly to puppies and can kill older dogs also. Go to your vet now and get them vaccinated. Be a responsible pet owner! (12/18/2009)
Never take your dog around dogs that haven't been vaccinated for Parvo. It's extremely contagious and a cruel death. I get very annoyed with people who don't get their dogs proper prevention when they are puppies. You need to see a vet ASAP. (12/18/2009)
Dogs are not even supposed to be in a yard or home where a dog who had parvo was in for up to two years even if the home was disinfected :-o Please talk to your vet about this situation! (12/20/2009)
I took my 8 year old dog to the the groomer. After picking him up, I was talking to the groomer and found out that her dog had about 4 months ago been sick with parvo. It was treated and is better now.
She had bleached the whole house and yard. I was not sure my dog, which was my mom's before she died, was up to date on shots. I called the vet and it had not had shots in two years.
So now I am concerned that he may get it parvo. How susceptible is he to parvo since he is not up to date on his shots?

I got a puppy whose parvo showed up a few days after we got him home. The vet said that no dog who has not finished and maintained their vaccinations should come on the property for at least a year. (08/22/2009)
Get him his shots like yesterday. (08/23/2009)
I would think if she bleached everything, it should be okay. As a groomer she's probably had hundreds of dogs through her house in the last four months. I'd think she would have had feedback if any of the others had come down with Parvo. I would imagine that your dog would be fine. (08/23/2009)
Parvo generally only affects puppies less than a year old. Your dog's parvo shot would have been when it was around 4-6 months old. And Parvo will live in the ground around a house, but it cannot be transmitted from your vet's dog to your dog without them being present together. She can't bring the disease to your dog on her.
