My Dog Played With a Dog That Has Parvo

December 13, 2017

Dog Played with Other Dogs with Parvo - Pit Bull on chair or couchMy 3 year old red nose Pit Bull played with two puppies that had parvo. One puppy died 4 days ago the other didn't, but has been diagnosed with parvo and he is not looking too good now. My Pit has had all her shots and is doing well, but should I still be worried? If I take her in before showing any signs will the vet be able to detect the virus? I am kinda worried now and the people that have this puppy keep coming over to my apartment.

Yes you should not have the dog around the other dog with parvo.Tell them to leave the puppy at home until he is clear of parvo.

Why continue to worry?
Call your vet and ask your question - be sure you talk with someone you believe can professionally advise you about this serious virus.

  • The first thing I would suggest is to tell your neighbor (nicely) that you would prefer they do not visit your apartment until you are sure there is no danger to your dog.

  • Or, maybe even for a longer period of time. They should be able to understand how you feel about a situation like this.
  • In all probability, your dog is safe but only your vet can give you sound advice in a matter this serious.
  • Your veterinarian should be able to do a test to determine the level of immunity your dog may or may not have.

From what I know your dog should be fine. But you may want to point out to your neighbors that they can carry the virus on their clothes and shoes. They need to be especially careful around other dogs, especially puppies for awhile.

A bleach solution will destroy the virus. They will need to clean their floors, the puppies bedding and toys and other things the puppy had a lot of contact with.

I recently found a puppy that turned out to have parvo. I gave him away to a good family looking for a pet online and they are the ones who found out. He had contact and shared the yard with my 9 month old Terrier who has been vaccinated against parvo and is not showing symptoms. However, he also had contact with my 5 month old kitten. Can parvo still be passed to my other puppy and/or kitten?

Yes!! Please be very careful. I have a 4 month old Boston Terrier at the Vet clinic right now on IV antibiotics. Her litter mate died Sunday from Parvo. The vet told me that Parvo is very contagious to other young animals and to make sure that if I get another puppy to keep it away from the places that my puppy has been.

She said that Parvo cannot be killed. It lives in the dirt and the air. She said that the only way to get rid of Parvo is to take up the top 6 inches of topsoil in your whole yard. Callie is luckily going to be okay, but her sister did not survive. Parvo is very dangerous.

Bleach is the only thing that will kill the Parvo virus. You must wash everything down inside and out. Side walks, lawn. Your grass might die but Parvo can live in the soil for over a year. Make sure any new animals are FULLY vaccinated as just their first and second boosters may not have them fully immunized. That is how my 4 month old puppy got it. My adult dogs had vaccs and did not get ill. Luckily he is a huge puppy at 50 pounds (before Parvo) and after a week of sleepless nights of running IV fluids and injections, he is finally up and eating boiled chicken and rice, with some good squirts of Pedialite to help regain much lost electrolytes. I was just fortunate to catch it early and have incredible vets that showed me how to do it all so I didn't have the isolation and boarding fees along with charges for all the time and treatment.

Diligence is required. I had just gotten his vaccs a week prior but the people who I got him from never had his little puppy vaccs, It is an insidious virus. BLEACH! BLEACH! BLEACH! Digging up spots of soil where the dog relieved itself WILL NOT get rid of virus as you can track it on your shoes too! You can not clean too much after Parvo. Best wishes with your next furry family member. Remember, there are many communities that have reduced vaccs and spay/neuter clinics should finances be a factor in getting your pets vaccs. (Cats cannot get Parvo but they are the source of it's origin- ironically).

That is not true. You can kill parvo in your yard or anywhere in your house where a puppy or dog has had parvo. Mix 1 bleach and 10 parts water and spray your entire yard and anywhere in your house where the puppy with parvo has been the mixture is not strong enough to bleach out your furniture or your carpet.

This solution will kill the parvo virus.

Bleach is not the only thing that will kill parvo. There are several cleaners that kill parvo virus including Roccal-D.

My dear dog, Allie, passed away last night because she didn't recover from her bout with parvo. My other dog, had not had its shots, but I immediately went and get her a shot after we found out about our other dog.

Will my dog be okay? I'm really scared and nervous.

I would discuss this with the vet. You must meticulously clean all surfaces the affected dog came in contact with using a bleach solution. Parvo can last up to a year outside, so you might have to keep your puppy inside if the other dog went outside.

When a dog is exposed to Parvo it can take a few days for the dog to show symptoms. You will need to watch your dog carefully for the next few days. If your dogs starts to vomit or have diarrhea get him back to the vet immediately. Parvo is dangerous and highly contagious. I would also ask my vet to do a Parvo test on the dog. The vet can do this in the office and it doesn't take long to find out the results. Here on the island we have a lot of very sick animals right now with Parvo. I always keep my dogs shots up to date. I immediately take any puppy to the vet at 6 weeks and start their shots.

You do not say how old your other dog is but the younger puppies are more at risk. You say you immediately went and got her a shot - was this with her vet? You did not tell them she had been exposed to Parvo? I hope you did inform them because your puppy could have carried the virus to the building/office and the vet should know about it.
Please call and discuss this with your vet as your dog will have to be closely watched for symptom signs so proper care and medication can be started and maybe save this dog. Please never carry a dog to visit a vet if they have been exposed to a contagious virus without informing the vet as they have to take precautionary measures before your visit.

Here is some info: Dogs that have direct or indirect exposure to the virus are highly likely to contract it and continue the spread and growth of the virus. When an uninfected dog licks itself or makes oral contact with an item or area where the virus has contaminated, the dog will become a new host. The virus can begin to affect your dog in as early as 24 hours and the younger the dog, the higher the risk.

You should be in the process of cleaning all surroundings (inside and outside, auto) even if your other dog does not contract this virus.

Here are a couple of web sites that give lots of information about Parvo and steps to take. The information is long (lots of reading) but everyone with a puppy should be informed about this terrible sickness.

If you have kept up with your dogs shots and kept them vaccinated then you should be fine. Normally, you see signs of a dog being sick within 48 to 72 hours, at times it is much quicker that you'll notice the dog not eating or throwing up.
