Understanding the Transmission and Incubation of Parvo

Can a dog be exposed to parvo and not show any symptoms for a month or more? What is the longest incubation period?

Do symptoms differ with the age of the dog involved as in do 8 week old puppies show different or more severe symptoms than a 5 month old puppy?


Can dogs that do not have direct contact with one sick with Parvo contract it through the air?

Beth your question is valid but you have to take your pets to vet if you even think they have parvo. If it attacks the intestines they are dead within 24 hours of showing signs. It may not be parvo it may be a number of things that you think are the same as parvo.. Yes it can be spread but thru the years I have found that walking in their own feces is usually root cause unless you bring it in with another animal or you take them where it is. At least take one of them to the vet .....If one is diagnosed then you can treat the others the same.
