Parvo virus can last anywhere from at least 6 months to even 2 years (or longer) depending on the conditions. To disinfect indoors can take up to a month.

Best to consult your vet.

Parvo can last for a year outside. I would keep an u protected dog away.

Your vet is the expert, so if you are like me, learn what "crowd sourcing" says then go to your vet to get the final answer....this is especially important because he/she will know what is best for your specific area (like if you are in some place where it is sunny all the time, hot and humid, it may be a different twist on what to do than someone like me in Pittsburgh where it rains most of the month of June and is cold in the morning and warm at night).

This first article says it is a myth that the disease can last up to 6 months in a yard (but most other articles say it can--which is another reason why the vet is best resource.)

This second article does talk about a bleach solution (which may be the solution mix you are already trying).

If you live in a highly populated area and have neighbor dogs/cats all around you, you may want to warn them about your situation and ask them to keep their fur kids away from your yard...two fold-so they don't get the disease AND if you are using a bleach solution...so they don't get that on their paws (which can cause all kinds of other issues).

Like raising human kids...the fur kids takes a village to be safe and keep them healthy.

PS. My friend's pup had Parvo and grew up to be a very sweet, healthy dog!! Sending up healthy wishes for your fur child!

If your dogs recovered from parvo, or have been vaccinated for parvo they are safe in your backyard. Once they have had the disease they are immune for life.

You might want to warn your neighbors so they can have their dogs vaccinated so they are also protected. I would think the bleach treatment would offer some protection, but I am not sure how much. Good question for a Vet.
