Dog Played with Other Dogs with Parvo?

Dog Played with Other Dogs with Parvo - Pit Bull on chair or couchMy 3 year old red nose Pit Bull played with two puppies that had parvo. One puppy died 4 days ago the other didn't, but has been diagnosed with parvo and he is not looking too good now. My Pit has had all her shots and is doing well, but should I still be worried? If I take her in before showing any signs will the vet be able to detect the virus? I am kinda worried now and the people that have this puppy keep coming over to my apartment.

Yes you should not have the dog around the other dog with parvo.Tell them to leave the puppy at home until he is clear of parvo.

Is your dog ok? I recently got a pup who is now being treated for Parvo. My 8 yo dog was in contact with him for 4 days. Im very worried!


Hoping she will be okay. She is fully vaccinated, but I am thinking of taking her again to get a boost of vaccines

Parvo is a highly contagious virus. That being said the canine strain can not infect cats or kittens. It is specific to dogs and puppies. Next thing bleach will kill the virus it's 1:30 mixture. Steam also will kill it. I put a bleach mixture in my shark steam mop and mopped everyday. I also did not resuse mop pads. Everything was washed with bleach and hot water. I threw up toys and other items that could be replaced. I also put my infected dog in one area of my house and my others were more than six feet from her with two gates separating them. I changed my clothes when I was with my infected dog and I had other clothes I wore with my dogs that were not infected. I bleached the dogs dishes and washed them throughly. I also washed my dog with parvo down and when she was sick I wiped her down with disposal wet wipes. I washed my other dogs in their area. No contact between the infected and non infected dogs. I don't allow shoes wore outside in my home.


I take my dogs to different specific places in my yard. I pick up all feces when they go to the bathroom. I washed my entire house with bleach water mixture. Also if your dog is vomiting, lethargic or diarrhea take them to the vet. The test will tell. I paid 360.00 for intial treatment and then 85.20 for eight days of additional meds. This virus kills in Hours 24-72. All other dogs that were exposured need to be monitored 3-14 days after first exposure. (If you find out your dog played with an infected puppy, they were exposured. The virus can take days incubation period) all this being said easiest route to go is vaccinations. 16 dollars a shot vs. 1,000s. Also the emotional toll- I can't even begin to explain that. I had to look at my best friend and know this could have been prevented. There was a point I had to convince her to keep going. It's pure hell. My advice get the shots. Don't forget. It's a matter of life and death.

Why continue to worry?
Call your vet and ask your question - be sure you talk with someone you believe can professionally advise you about this serious virus.


  • The first thing I would suggest is to tell your neighbor (nicely) that you would prefer they do not visit your apartment until you are sure there is no danger to your dog.
  • Or, maybe even for a longer period of time. They should be able to understand how you feel about a situation like this.
  • In all probability, your dog is safe but only your vet can give you sound advice in a matter this serious.
  • Your veterinarian should be able to do a test to determine the level of immunity your dog may or may not have.

You should contact a vet about this question. If the puppy was around the one with parvo, it's likely that they have already contracted the virus, as it is very contagious. It might be too late for the vaccine.

From what I know your dog should be fine. But you may want to point out to your neighbors that they can carry the virus on their clothes and shoes. They need to be especially careful around other dogs, especially puppies for awhile.


A bleach solution will destroy the virus. They will need to clean their floors, the puppies bedding and toys and other things the puppy had a lot of contact with.

Your dog should be protected from parvo, but I wouldn't go near a dog that is sick on purpose.
