Hello and thank you for your question. It appears that the Expert you were hoping to speak with is not currently available. I have stepped in to assist you in their absence. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) When was the mother's last DHPP vaccine given? Has she been kept up to date on annual vaccines before now?
2) Where have the past parvo puppies been kept primarily within your home and yard?
3) Where are you obtaining your vaccines?
