Can humans give dogs parvo?
Yes. Humans can transmit parvo if they have come in contact with it. Dog parvo doesn't make people sick, but if your dog has parvo, and you touch another dog who is not vaccinated, that dog will also have parvo. Parvo can survive on surfaces for 12 months and only bleach will kill it. If you carried your dog with parvo, then the clothes you were wearing also carries parvo unless you bleach them. If your dog vomits on your carpet, that spot is infected with parvo for 12 months, unless you bleach that area. Even the part of the yard where it uses the bathroom will be infected with parvo for a year.

How does a puppy survive parvo?
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 actual 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.
