Reread My first question- was for treatment for house & yard to kill parvo virus. I have read it lasting any where from 6wks to 7 years???? "The virus can last for months-" very general. I was hoping in asking a vet I could get a little more definitive answer. I live in phoenix Az where it's dry & hot, does that make any difference?
I already had pups & for the 1st time ever had parvo after vaccinating mother while she was nursing, & I gave the pups their 1st shot at 9wks old, yet the ones I had left still contracted parvo at 3&1/2 mo old. They started getting symptoms right before their second shot - which they did not get then. Out of the 5 I had left, 3 survived with 24 hr. home care & a LOT of Prayer & 2 died (only due to not enough $$ to get more home treatment from the vet on time)
I would like to have pups again, I have people wanting & waiting for pups between my full blood Dobie & a mix female of black & silver greatdane, pit bull, & bull mastiff
. Beautiful & smart dogs I guess is why people want them. But now that I know how to work the advertising, I will not be holding on to them as long & hopefully all will have found a home by 8weeks old.
My original questions I was asking to begin with was to help me decide on how to do so & keep the puppies with enough of a continued boost of antibodies, since I now have had Parvo exposure. I believe they had the start of some immunity, but if I give the shots for the pups at sooner intervals, & maybe Mom while she is pregnant & while she is nursing??
REread my questions please
