Puppy Played with a Dog with Parvo

My puppy is 8 weeks old and has had one parvo shot. He was around another puppy all day and that puppy has parvo. Can my puppy get it? Also my 1 year dog also was around the parvo puppy.

Puppies should not be allowed to socialize with other dogs or frequent areas where other dogs have been until 2 weeks after they have had their last vaccination. ... Dogs that develop parvo will show symptoms 3-10 days after being exposed. Symptoms include: vomiting, lethargy, diarrhea (usually bloody), and fever. Mortality rate: 90 percent if left untreated, 5-20 percent if aggressively treated. 80 percent of adult dogs show no symptoms; puppies are most susceptible. If your pet becomes infected, please keep in mind that dogs with parvo shed the virus in their feces and are extremely contagious to any unvaccinated dog.

You may want to talk to your pup's vet and see if there is anything preventive that can be done or if one dose of the vaccine is enough to start the immunity process.

Prayers that your pup stays healthy!

In the meantime, be sure to keep your sweet baby away from other dogs just in case, G-d forbid that he is in the disease incubation stage.

Post back how things go. Prayers all around!!!!

Please contact the vet ASAP as your dog is not fully vaccinated against parvo. See what advice you get.

Hi,

If your puppy shows no signs of the virus for up to ten days, then it will probably not get Parvo.

Even if it shows signs continue with the vaccinations and take your pup to the vet.

Was the exposure at your home? If you have not already, then clean all the contaminated areas with bleach. Bleach will destroy a lot of the virus. Let the bleach sit on the floor for a while, 10-15 minutes or so.

Give the puppy chicken, along with its food, and eventually offer less dry food and more chicken. This should help it digest more easily and get the nutrients into its body which should boost its immunity.

If the puppy gets symptoms, and I hope it does not, then the idea is to keep the puppy hydrated while this virus runs its course, which is about 3 to 6 weeks.

Usually the puppy will be through with the virus in three weeks. After all this clean all the areas again, with bleach before introducing other puppies.

Older dogs are safer from exposure to Parvo since their immune systems are more developed.

Cuddle your baby and keep the puppy de-stressed. Enjoy every minute with your puppy!

Blessings,

---Robyn
