Re: 10 week old puppy with parvo
I was at the vet today and someone came in with a nine week old ****zu/chi cross. After talking to her a bit, she put the pups leash on and placed her on the floor!
Quelching the stroke relatively quickly, I said, "uh, I wouldn't put her down yet, there's no way to know whether any dog was sick here." She scooped the pup up, and said "good point." I went on (giving unsolicited advice) and told her that even if the pup had its first set of shots from the breeders, who did keep the pup for eight weeks, it all depends when the mother's immunity wears off, the first set may not have counted at all.
I think she felt that was good to know.
I hope so anyway.
Parvo is awful and I am sorry you are going through it.
