Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
I am so sorry to hear about Wolf's condition. Unfortunately, the vaccines are not 100% effective and with a large exposure, Wolf could contract this disease.
The good news is that he does have the antibodies against this disease and since Wolf is a little older, his own immune system is maturing and he has a very good chance of coming out of this disease. The treatment is appropriate and I do believe that Wolf will come out of this unharmed.
With his maturing immune system and the vaccine on board, his body will fight this off. If Wolf was only 2 months, the prognosis would not be as good. For Wolf ,,the prognosis is very good.
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please Reply so I can clarify for you

thats very positive, i have also mopped the house floors with bleach as advised by the vet, my dogs have a shingled area in the garden for a toilet, i normally use a very good garden disinfectant thats quite strong, will this do the job to aliminate the virus from the garden or should i use raw bleach and pour it everywhere?
thank you so much, i dont have a lot of money but it was worth the payment as my spanish is not that good and their english is worse, i am very worried about him, i do have two other dogs, 1 is 3 and 1 is 5 years, they are both fully vaccinated, along with my 2 cats who are both over 3 years of age and fully vaccinated, and they all seem okay, although i will be keeping a close eye on them now. thank you for the link, i have opened it on a seperate tab to read shortly. i feel a little bit more relaxed knowing he has a good chance of pulling though, personally i think he may have caught this at the vets as came down ill a few days after his jab, but who knows. cant thank you enough for your help, just wish i didnt have to pay another 13gbp to let you know how he gets on, but thank you again for your positive words, i may sleep easier tonight. kindest regards
because we moved to spain a few years ago, i can speak quite a bit but iam far from fluent, and the vet speak english but not very well, but at least there is an effort made on both sides. how do i let you know how he is, do i leave this page open and use the reply to expert tomorrow? iam not sure. but thank you again for all your help and advise, its very appreciated and maybe tomorrow i will get some good news about my little baby boy.
muchas gracias XXXXX XXXXX x
