not taking your pupppy to puppy classes at pet stores until they are fully vaccinated.
Parvo is a viral disease that grows in rapidly and unvaccinated puppies, or those that have not received all of their boosters are at great risk.
The Parvovirus can be found most anywhere so it can easily be contracted when a puppy or unvaccinated dog is exposed to an area where an infected dog has been.
PUPPIES: It is best to stay in your own yard or that of a friend or family member you know has well-vaccinated dogs.
It is much more common in puppies than it is in adult dogs.
The intestinal lining has the biggest concentration of rapidly dividing cells in a puppy's body.
The virus attacks and kills these cells, causing diarrhea (often bloody), depression, and suppression of white blood cells -- which come from another group of rapidly dividing cells.
There is no cure for parvo, the vets can only do supportive care, which costs from 00-3000 to treat, and there is a 20 % chance a puppy still could die.
The three vaccinations help build a puppy’s immune system, but does not protect them 100%.
The virus is shed through vomit and feces of an infected dog and can live in the soil for years.
