Parvo question?

Question: I take my puppy for the dog park and she plays great with this other puppy. Well today, the other dog had diarrhea and i was telling the other girl a bland diet worked great on my puppy when she had diarrhea and she says "yeah that's what i did when he had parvo" like it was nothing!!!!! this puppy is only about 5 months, so it wasn't like the parvo was a long time ago. My question is, is there a chance that dog can continue spreading the disease? She said he's on the treatment for parvo (which i understand lasts for a while after the dog has had it). the other dog seemed perfectly health... i.e he was perfectly playful, and she said that the diarrhea was something new. also, they have another dog too and i would hope they would have been smart enough to tell the vet this, and then the vet maybe would have not let them take the dog home till he was ok. the dog WAS treated cause she mentioned how he was in ICU

Yes Parvo spreads like a wild fire in CA. I remember once at the vets when I worked there we had to close off a whole kennel room for one dog with parvo. If we went in there we had to wear gloves and a cover. When we came out we had to bleach the bottoms of our shoes. Are you sure its Parvo? If the dog had it and is 100% better its not a problem.

If their dog has parvo it needs to be taken to the vet right away. As for your dog if he is pooping ok meaning they are solid and not liquid then he does not have Parvo. If your dog, especially your new puppy, begins exhibiting any of these symptoms, see a veterinarian right away. When parvo is involved, every hour counts. The secret of survival is quick treatment, so don’t ignore these symptoms! One or all of these will usually being showing after 3 – 10 days of infection. * Lethargic. If your dog normally likes to play and has high energy, this is the clearest sign that something is wrong. You could say they act depressed. * Lack of Appetite. The more common strains attack the digestive system. * Vomiting with no change in diet. It usually looks clear and foamy. * Bloody Diarrhea. * Stronger Feces Odor. It’s unmistakable and you will never forget it. The vomiting and diarrhea are the most dangerous, as they can quickly lead to dehydration and malnutrition. This leads to other problems that eventually compound on top of each other to finally kill the dog. And fast. Always be on the lookout these symptoms of parvo, especially if your puppy is over 10 weeks old.

seeing as we dont know how long ago the puppy had it, it is hard to tell if it can still spread it to your dog, why not ask her casually if her dog is ok the next time you see her and ask when how long ago her dog had it, Parvo has a 10 day incubation period, keep you dog away from this dog for that period of time, keep an eye on your dog, watch for lethergy, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea. I f you see any signs go to the vet ASAP. Also i assume your dog is vaccinated against Parvo, this will help, but there is always a risk. VET NURSE.

Well Unless her vet said that the dog is completely rid of the virus she is now spreadung the virus all over the dog park! I would not go back there again ever! She is a very stupid person to even have her dog out in the park. The dog is sick! I would hope that her vet expalined how contagious this virus is. If not than shame on him, if he did then shame on her for being so uncaring to all the other park visitors. This is how and why Parvo spreds like wild fire! She and her dog just may start an epidemic!

Yes it can spread the disease! If your puppy starts having diarrhea, you need to take him to the vet immediatly!!! I would even take him now just to be on the safe side! Good Luck!

We took him to the vet this morning and they said he might have parvo or just a cold Any vet that thought a dog could have parvo would of run tests and not sent that puppy home I would be finding a new vet and get that pup seen again now and good luck
