That's so sad . I don't understand parvo today when it can be prevented.

I'm very sorry to hear that. Its so sad

but I don't understand. There's a vaccine. It doesn't matter what breed it is...

I had a friend who had a young dog that died of parvo. She made up all these stories about the dog being vaccinated and the dog got it anyway when she noticed that I was pretty upset that this happened. (because it could've been prevented)
Turned out the dog didn't have UTD shots at all There was a miscommunication between her and the vet. But that happens all the time, vets give mult component shots and the owners just trust them to have everything covered, and often don't know what shots their dogs have had, and when . . .
sorry for the mini rant, lol

Cool Hi

There is no cure for parvo unless you treat it a t the exat moment it happens, the first sighn you should take it to the vet. Also you need to tell your friend that parvo lives in the ground for 7 years. So you need to tell your friend to spray the entire area with clorox or a VERY STRONG disenfectent.

I'm sorry about your friend's pups, I hope the second one makes it.

I'm sure no one here is suggesting that the dogs weren't vaccinated. Right?
I was interested in the Rottweiler comment and went and did some searching.
Interesting reading out there.
To paraphrase...Rotts, Dobermans, GSDs and other black and tan dogs are more susceptible to Parvo.
Since Parvo can be carried in on shoes etc....it really could be possible for a young dog to not have enough immunity yet and get Parvo even though they've been vaccinated.
Now I don't know the story behind these dogs, heck I don't even know this poster....just hated to see that everyone jumped to the conclusion right away that the pups didn't have their shots.

Here's one of the many sites I found that made note of the black and tan breeds.

There is no cure for parvo.

Rotties are one of the few breeds that more susceptible to it than others.

I hope your friends pup can pull through. Parvo is ugly.

See this thread.

Your friend must bleach the hell out of his/her house! EVERYTHING must be cleaned and not just once. Parvo can survive in the worst of environments for a long time.

Parvo is so sad I just lost my puppy to parvo last month. He was up to date on vaccines, but still got it. And he never left the house!

My vet said here in vegas Parvo is SO bad right now, it's like a epedemic. Is isolation ward was full of Parvo puppies. he has never seen so many parvo cases before (he has been a vet for 20 years)
