Getting a New Puppy After Losing One to Parvo?

I had a male and female Rottweiler puppy and they died due to the parvo virus. I miss them, that's why I am thinking of getting a new puppy. After 2 weeks is it safe to get a new puppy?

No it is not safe. You will need to disinfect your whole house and anything the other puppies touched. Many people disinfect their yards. You will find many posts on this site on how to do this. You would be really wise to get a puppy that has completed its parvo vaccinations. Of not, maybe you could train your puppy to puppy pads until he has completed his vaccinations. Parvo virus lives in the soil (or elsewhere) for years.

As Lizzyanny said, definitely not safe after two weeks. You haven't had time to steam clean or shampoo carpets and upholstery, Lysol the floors, wash all throws and stuff. You have to do this. And all the puppy things like toys and bowls need to be disinfected or destroyed.


If they went on puppy pads that's one thing, but if they pooped outside at all you'll need a lawn disinfectant that is safe for animals. However, it is safest to wait 5 to seven months for the virus to die.
