Parvo, is a deadly and dangerous stomach virus that usually attacks puppies more so than older or vaccinated dogs, the virus produces a foul smelling bloody diareha and vomiting .The infected puppy/dog usually die with in 48-72 due to dehydration. 80-85 percent of parvo infected puppies survive if caught in time. Parvo is not airbourne transmitted its enviromental due to contamination of feces and body fluids.Humans cannot contract parvo from dogs its just very contagious to other dogs and puppies. even with vaccinations there is a good chance your pet can contract Parvo but its less severe in most cases. Home care can be used but it takes dedication and lots of patiences to care for your pet if you cannot afford to hospitialize at the vets office, Pediolite with a syringe or teaspoon every 15 min ( same used for kids) liquid immodium ad every 4 hours and peptobismal every 4-6 hours to help relieve stomach cramps and use bleach and water to clean up any vomit and feces. Parvaid has become wildly used anti parvo meds and has seen success in treating parvo infected pets but still no guarentee of survival.

Rottweillers, Dobermans, Labs, Beagals or dogs that are tan and black are more likely to contract Parvo then other breeds but still other breeds can contract parvo.

To disenfect your house, use a solution 1:3 ration of water and Clorox bleach and bleach every thing or throw away items the infected puppy/dog was in contact with.Even with bleaching your house it will still be contaimanated and its best to wait 5-6 months to bring an unvaccinated puppy in the house that is under 6 months old.

Disenfect your yard there is no guarentee to bleaching and even liming the yard. Lime is great to add after the bleach, best thing is to have a backhoe /bulldozer remove 4-6 inches of top soil then bleach and lime thisarea to help remove the waste products that soked in the ground.

It's best not to introduce a new puppy or unvaccinated dog to the yard for 6months to a year. Parvo has been know to last up to 7 years in soil.

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.

Can your dog get parvo by playing with a dog with parvo?

Yes, as well as laying in spaces where previous fecal matter has been. Usually the space becomes contaminated. Older dogs can be carriers of the parvovirus, though they might never show signs because they are immune. Parvo usually only infects puppies. Once your dog has had parvo, it can never get parvo again.
