We live where a lot of Illegals live. Not all of them but a lot of them don't treat their dogs like a lot of us do. They don't spay or neuter their dogs. There is a lot of puppies born here. And either they don't know about vaccinating for diseases or don' want to or feel they can't afford to. And a lot of dogs get abandoned here if they decide they don't want them or they move out of the country. We had packs of wild dogs until AC started coming out more often. It was getting dangerous for people and pets because of the wild dogs. A pack of wild dogs broke into our yard and killed my 2 pet chickens and my Guinea Hen. Our next door neighbor lost 2 puppies to Parvo right after our puppy died. I vaccinate our dogs. Our puppy was 10 wks old when we got it. It got it's first shot the morning before we picked it up. I didn't know anything about Parvo. I had never been around it or knew anybody that had. So I didn't know the puppy should have had it's shot before that. I sure learned a lot about Parvo in a very short time. I found out later at that time a lot of neighbor's puppies died of Parvo. Whole litters. When you have people that don't vaccinate their dogs you have epidemics.

I for one thank you again. I wish had known about Parvo. And I found out since then a lot of people don' know. I think we need to tell as many people about it, as we can. And a forum like this one is a very good way to educate many people.

I'm new... and my dog might have Parvo

Hey guys! I'm new and I kind of like it here so far!

So let me begin by saying that I have a vet appointment tommorrow morning, I understand you are not vets and I don't feel my situation is an emergency (not yet, anyway), otherwise I would be at a 24 hour vet right now. But I would greatly appreciate it if you could share some of your knowledge with me and others reading this.

Can dogs who have been vaccinated still get Parvo? I know it is more common in puppies but how about dogs over a year old?

My guy has had all his shots but I plan on asking for a Parvo test tommorrow just in case. My vet is kind of old school and I find he doesn't really explore his options unless I come right out and ask him to try this or that. Are there any other tests other than Parvo I should be asking for?

Cuba's symptoms are: loss of appetite, lethargy, diarrhea, mopiness, sleeping steady, looking like he just got his heart broken.

Poor little guy....

No injections are not 100% succesful......Dogs can still get the disease but it tends to be more of a prob in younger dogs as the antibody protection they recieve from thier mothers milk interferes with the injection.Some vets like my vet tend to have me bring dogs in every year for boosters and thankfully we never had prob with any of my dogs but we see alot less of Parvo in the UK

I would also haave your dog tested for Lyme Disease

Just an update. My vet thinks Cuba had Giardia. He gave him a couple of injections and his symptoms subsided within 8 hours. He appears to be all better now!
Thanks, Stevo, for responding.
