Yes, a puppy can get a parvovirus infection up until 14 days after the last parvo booster shot (usually given at 16 weeks of age). The parvo shot is a vaccine, which is not immediately effective and needs to be boostered several times until the puppy's immune system has built up enough antibodies to protect the puppy.

-Nursing: maternal antibodies protect against "parvo," or Canine parvovirus type 2 -Avoiding the virus: Don't let your puppies near infected animals or the feces of infected… animals. Use bleach to clean toys or surfaces that you think got infected. -Vaccination: the vaccine against parvo is awesome and you should follow your vet's instructions because timing is very important. To early and it won't work, too late and you expose your puppy unnecessarily.
Yes, as they usually will not have full immunity until after the 3rd shot. It's the "window of susceptibility". During this time, limit your dogs exposure to other dogs, dog p…arks, pet stores and the floor of vet clinics.
Medicine is not an exact science, so different Vets have different beliefs about when the "perfect" time is. Vaccines are meant to build (or boost) a puppy's own immune …system response to a disease; if given too early, the antibodies puppy received from its mom will ward off the disease, and puppy won't build its own immunity. I believe the current UC Davis recommendation is that puppy gets its first Parvo vaccine at 8 weeks of age, with a booster at 12 weeks and 16 weeks, however your Vet will know the protocol most effectively used in your area.
depending on where you go to get your shots and the age of your puppy, the first round for puppies usually doesnt have the parvo vaccine. they are able to get a parvo vaccine …after they reach 6 weeks of age. and should be boosted on that monthly until the reach about 4 months old.
In speaking with my vet and going through this for my first time. The vet told me puppies can be dewormed at 2 weeks with their first shots being done at 1 month.
Maybe a year. But unvaccinated, you will encounter Parvo everywhere. Vets office, pet store, other dogs, dog parks, even your backyard. Treatment for parvo at the vet with …50/50 odds can start at $1000-3000. It's better to get the $30 shot.
A puppy has to be 6 weeks old to get a parvo shot and is needed every 3-4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old. After the puppy series they should be given once a year when they …turn a year old.
Diarrhea comes and dog will stop eating my friends puppy died from parvo. I don't want mine to, I'm worried sick! I have no idea if after a puppy gets parvo shots, it can stil…l get parvo. Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious disease, which is spread from dog to dog from contact with infected feces. This doesn't just mean just out on a walk, if you have feces on your shoe, then your unvaccinated pup still stands a chance of picking it up. It is also not a good idea to let a puppy chew your shoes. Speak to your veterinarian about parvovirus, they will give you the valuable information on when to get your puppy vaccinated.
Yes, it is possible. The vaccine against parvovirus is not considered completely effective in a puppy until two weeks after the last shot is given; since the last shot is gene…rally given when the puppy is 16 weeks old, the puppy can usually be considered protected by the time it is 18 weeks old. If your puppy had not completed the vaccine series, it was still susceptible to parvovirus infection.
No, the parvovirus in dogs is a completely different form than the virus in humans.

Parvo is hard to cure take your puppies to the vet asap.
If properly medicated and taken very good care of.
Parvo is a deadly disease for pups, they have a higher risk of dying than surviving parvo...take it to the vet Answer:Parvo causes severe dehydration, which is the actua…l cause of death. If a puppy with parvo can be kept hydrated by pushing fluids like Pedialyte while the illness runs its course (usually 2-3 days), it has a chance to recover fully. Vet care for parvo can be prohibitively expensive for many people, because it literally calls for an around-the-clock vigil to make sure the puppy gets enough fluids to keep it alive until it regains the strength to drink on its own. Nursing a puppy through parvo is extremely demanding, which is why so few pups survive it.
Take it to the vet immediately. Parvo has an untreated mortality rate of about 90%, and it's even more severe for puppies than it is for adult dogs.
