for me the question would be, does this pup have immunity from the mother at this age ? i don't have an answer for this but i would think so, but you would not want repeated exposure to the outside world yet.

There are a lot of ways to vaccinate. This is the schedule we use especially with orphans, the 6 week one.

Further to to that, any vaccine would be knocked out by maternal antibodies, however, the mercury, aluminum, formaldhyde, msg would not be.

Even if the puppy does, that immunity (maternal) will wane, which is why a series of vaccines are given.
That's been explained in other threads.

You can't determine when mom's immunity will wane, and if the mom was a stray she may not even have immunity to disease passed on to the puppies.

This is why you start at 6 weeks and do boosters along the way.

Antibodies can be tested by blood work.

If mother was a stray and hadn't succumed to such disease, then she was likely vaccinated at some point in her life and this would still pass on the maternal immunity.

If the dog was born wild, raised in the wild and hadn't succumed to disease, and had been exposed to then she naturally developed immunity the way nature designed it via the mucous membranes and not delivered directly into the blood.

If such disease was so prevelent, wouldn't all wild canidae be extinct? or is it because wild canidae are not vaccinated. Nature sure throws a curve ball at science.

I agree with GatorBytes ... no need to vaccinate so early ... especially if you are already saying to keep them inside and away from anything and everything ...

You might want to do some research before making such statements
It could happen.

Idaho wolf had parvo - Pinedale, Wyoming

You still need to consider the risk vs. benefit and the benefits of vaccinating (and starting young in orphan pups) is far greater than risks.

Pups between six weeks and six months are more susceptible than adults. Domestic dogs can be vaccinated against parvovirus.

no time to read, however - it's called natural selection in the wild if an animal succums to disease...in the case of parvo - this was a man-made disease mutated from the original strain of distemper vaccine that has been passed on from domestic animals to wild animals....now not only are our pets at risk from big business spured fear mongering, our wild animals are paying the price too

Good job science

This is all very off topic so I hope that Harmony got the answer she was looking for...

BUT...Someone else said this same thing and I looked for info but couldn't find it. Do you have any links regarding this? Thanks!
