would it hurt to give a dog a parvo shot if he is showing signs

would it hurt to give a dog a parvo shot if he is showing signs of parvo already?
I understand your concern. Do not give a dog a parvo vaccine if he is already showing signs of vomiting and diarrhea. Have him tested and if positive, if possible start aggressive treatment with fluids and supportive treatment if at all possible. The parvo vaccine in the face of an infection of any kind will drop the immune response to infection and make things worse.
