Can a puppy get parvo after getting his shot?
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.

Thanks for the feedback!
Technically you can, but it would be unlikely. A high dose of parvo would come from being in contact with infected feces. Also, if you feel that your dog may be in danger of p…arvo and you can't afford the vet bills there is a company that will help diagnose your dog for free look up they were very helpful for me.
YES - Parvo virus can mutate into strains that are not covered. The vaccine may also be ineffective if it is outdated, or not kept cold enough. Vaccines can also be rendered i…neffective if given before the pup is weaned long enough, as the immunity from the mother's ,milk may override vaccines given too early. And lastly, vaccines must be given at 3-wk intervals between 6 and 16 weeks, then again at 6 months.
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.
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.
there is always a chance it can contract it again, however it is very uncommon, especially if they have survived it, that means their immune system has built up an immunity to… the parvo virus. it is also very difficult for dogs over the age of 6 months to get parvo.
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.
I have a dachshund, that just got her shots today, and right now she has been moving slowly, stiff, and where they injected her, she seems to be very controlled over; su…ch as I barely touched her, and she squealed from pain. The Vet says that that is the right side affects, but I am not sure. She is in a high amount of pain, and I wish that that doesn't have to happen, but if it saves her life, you might as well get it! If you search online, like google or yahoo, then you can see other opinions and facts about the parvo shot(s). I hope that I could give you some help!
It can, but the odds aren't good. Canine parvovirus is fatal about 80% of the time in puppies.
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.
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.
Yes, but if you have an unvaccinated young puppy, you will risk having it die of parvo too. Parvo - short for parvovirus - is a nasty viral infection of the gastrointestinal t…ract. In young puppies, it can cause death within a few days from dehydration and toxic shock. The vaccine against it is very effective and is recommended for all dogs, with a three-shot inital series and a yearly booster thereafter. A puppy is not considered completely vaccinated until two weeks after the third shot in the original series. The virus itself is very hardy and can survive in a kennel or house for years. Cleaning with bleach water (then rinse thoroughly) then with soap and water (then rinse thoroughly) then with an all-purpose sanitizer like Lysol or Pine-Sol (then rinse thoroughly) will get the virus load down, but probably not kill all of it.
My lab puppy was diagnosed with Parvo 4 days ago. My vet did prescribe Amoxicillin. This does not cure Parvo, it helps to prevent other bacteria from growing in the intestine.… Parvo is a virus and will not be cured with antibiotics.
No, it will not help. A puppy with Parvo will most likely die without immediate veterinary attention. There are antiviral medications that can be of some help, and most …likely the pup will need IV fluids to keep it hydrated if it is to have any chance of surviving. The older the puppy is, the better it's chances, but Parvo is a very serious virus, and Pepto Bismol isn't going to do anything other than stop the puppy's body from trying it's best to expel the virus, if it even does that. If the dog hasn't had a Parvo test done, it should have that done right away to determine if that is the problem. A dog with Parvo needs to be treated as soon as possible. Even hours can make the difference between life and death. Good luck!
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.
if you puppy has parvo bad they WON'T EAT,SLEEP ALL DAY, DIEARRIA WITH BLOOD,VOMIT AND EXTREME WEIGHT LOSS!!!
