Identifying Parvo in Dogs?

In November I got a red nose Pit Bull, she was very sick when I got her at 6 weeks old so I took her to the vet. The vet did no tests and told me she had a cold and sent her home. At 9 weeks old she started throwing up once a day. As the week went on she threw up more and more and it had a vile smell to it, but her stool never turned black or runny. She stopped eating or drinking and eventually died at 10 weeks old. She had her first shots when the vet checked her. The vet never tested her for Parvo.


I have 2 other dogs, a 9 month old terrier mix and a 9 year old Chigle (Beagle/ Chihuahua mix). I know the name is funny, but I wanted to name her breed haha. When Leona got sick I worried about Pandora and Sasha, but they never got sick. Neither of them have been vaccinated other than for rabies. They are my sister and mom's dogs so I did none of their vet care. What I'm wondering is, could Leona not have had parvo? Is there something else that seems like parvo, but isn't?

I took Leona to the vet as soon as I noticed the oddness in her behavior. I took her 4 times in 2 weeks so no one can say I didn't try to figure out what was wrong. But in all seriousness why did 1 dog get sick, but the other 2 didn't?

If a dog has parvo, it kills them much quicker than you described. It could be that the puppy had issues from birth or was already sick when you got her.

The day before she died i called the vet because they put her on penicillin shots to see if it was an infection to let them know it was getting work and thats when the vet told me it was parvo. But yeah they die much quicker from all the research ive found so im rying to figure out what the heck it was.
