| | Moving house and want to leave parvo behind
We lost two puppies this week to parvo (16 week Basset and 8 week Lab).
We are moving house in about 3 weeks time and want to make sure we don't bring this horrible infection with us.
We are disinfecting our current house with a bleach solution. We will use pool chlorine for the garden. I have destroyed the beds and toys the pups had and we have soaked their metal food dishes in a bleach solution as well. We will also disinfect shoes. I am however not sure about clothing - any advise on that would be helpful.
I am also not sure about our cat. I know cats can't get parvo or carry it, however he was in the area where the puppies got sick and they did play with him a lot - licking him and nipping his ears. Is there a danger that he may have the virus on his paws or fur? If so what can we do to disinfect him? i spoke to a vet about this and he was of the opinion that this should not be a big danger but I would like some other opinions. We don't want to introduce a new puppy to a new home and have it get sick because we brought the virus with us.
Any words of wisdom from users who have experience with this would be appreciated.
Thanks for reading.
