My puppy is 9 weeks old, with two rounds of vaccines still

Customer Question

My puppy is 9 weeks old, with two rounds of vaccines still to go, I have been careful with where she has been, but this past week I've had to take her to rental to paint and she has used the lawn to pee and poop, and she vomited this morning, she got into some paper this morning while unsupervised which was all I could find in her vomit. She came in and ate again, but I'm worried about parvo....

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. If she only vomited the one time, and you saw paper in it, that was most likely the cause of the vomiting. Parvo usually takes 1-2 weeks after infection to show symptoms, although viral particles may be detected in the feces a few days before clinical signs start. If she is eating and not vomiting, I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just keep monitoring her. You can always have your vet test her for parvo, but the test may show a false negative if infected not long ago. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
