Parvo recovery--experiences wanted

My vax'd rescue (last round of shots in January, he's estimated to be around 6 mo now) was dx'd with parvo yesterday. I feel like he's going to be ok--very lethargic and won't eat but has had water on his own, is urinating and no bloody stools and I'm giving him syringes of pedialyte, may start a subQ IV today at home depending on vet visit.

My question is going forward how to prevent a reinfection or it spreading to the neighbors. I had 2 families kids over yesterday before the dx, and they pet the dog and walked all around the yard. I'm going to text the neighbors that we have a positive parvo test, and to watch for symptoms for their dogs, but do I need to keep kids out of my yard for weeks? One of the kids is getting a new puppy--should he stay out of my yard until his puppy is fully vaxed?

In the house, I'm hoping to buy some Trifectant from the vet to spray on my carpets, couch, and car interior--has anyone NOT been so militant and not had it spread? I guess I'm asking what's the least I can get away with. I plan on spraying bleach and/or replacing the dog's toys, current bedding, etc., but how vigilant do I need to be on carpets and furniture?

Sorry so long, thanks in advance for any advice.

There is a lot of info on cleaning after Parvo and I think you should do a thorough Google search.......the virus even after cleaning can remain for several weeks to even years! Even after your dog is recovered it will be shedding the virus...you really need to do your very best to protect all other very young dogs and very old dogs that come into your environment....GOOGLE; "Cleaning After Parvo"............ Glad your pup is doing well!
