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 still get parvo.



Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious disease, which is spread from dog to dog from contact with infected feces.
