Puppy Vomiting After Recovering from Parvo?

I had a puppy who died from parvo (the whole litter came down with it) After coming to terms and wanting a companion I got another puppy who had survived it from the same litter. Just earlier today he threw up that clear foamy liquid that occurs with parvo. I know the virus will always be in his system, but should it ever act up like that? He's still acting like a normal energetic puppy, but I still want to know if it's normal. Please help!

Read this Parvo info from WebWest animal hospitals:
www.vetwest.com.au/.../parvovirus-in-dogs

I was surprized to learn that the Parvo virus is airborne-so is, obviously, very easily spread. After more research, the answer to your initial question is no, the dog has the virus the rest of its life but it will not reoccur. Having had Parvo disease, the dog is essentially "naturally vaccinated"-poor dog! Similar to Polio in humans-the irony here is that poeple who survived Polio as children are now finding new medical problems resulting from the Polio disease.

However, after a Parvo illness, immunity is very low and other problems may continue and new diseases may occur.

Note that diahrrea and vomiting are common difficulties after Parvo, the dog's stomach and intestines are very weak after the disease and will be recovering from Parvo and open to other problems and diseases.

You should immediately take your dog back to your vet for treatment as these problems can continue and worsen so other diseases may take hold.

Parvovirus is NOT airborne. This is misinformation that has been going around, so a lot of sites may have it. (They get their information from other sites.)

A dog must physically come into contact with the animal or it's body fluids or feces. It can easily become an epidemic in an area where dogs poop in the same area, or someone is caring for puppies with parvo and also caring for other dogs, such as at a shelter. Think "ebola", here.

The parvo virus is extremely persistent in the environment such as the yard and can be hard to get rid of.

Having worked in the vet field for years I know that your first statement is absolutely false. This virus can be spread via airborne. Please try and refrain from passing info on without being certain of outs truth.

It is not airborne. I have a dog with parvo as a foster dog and all vets said no.. though it spreads very easily.

I could see why you'd think that. When in doubt, ask a vet. People who have worked in the Field are not vets.

I would not panic about one instance of vomiting. I would be concerned after two or more episodes. And clearly the Vet would be the help you need at that time. Good luck.
