Q. Hi, I have an 11 week old pup she has had her 2 vaccinations 3rd due soon, 2 vaccinated dogs staying with us have been in parvo area what risk to her

Answered By

A. If your puppy and the other dogs have all had some or full vaccination, then the risk is likely low. However, it is always a good idea to practice good sanitation routines and to pick up stools and keep areas clean if an accident occurs. Signs of parvo include bloody diarrhea and vomiting, lethargy, loss of appetite and fever so if you do see these signs it is best to isolate the affected pet and to seek veterinary care and treatment immediately.
