Please keep your brother's pup separated from your pup. Since it sounds like the pup has already been exposed to your pup, watch for symptoms and definitely retested within a few days since it can take 6-9 days before symptoms begin appearing.

More links:

As Saphire said, not all pups pass from this. Treating the secondary infections, hydration appears to be the chance they need to survive.

Again, can't stress this enough - keep your brother's pup separated from your pup.

Thanks for the links, i am going through it right now.

I do not know why he gave antibiotic....

i do not know how far the virus is, but the test result showed 2 lines in red, and the vet saays that is strong positive.

Could't think of any questions that moment, called him 5 time till now for other updates.

Right now he is sleeping and breathing heavyly by my side. Can't even cry, evrybody is crying and i have stay strong. Can't talk with anybody about it, and it has a g=fatality of 100% in here as i called vets in town.

And i though i could keep him safe from anything

Thanks for the links, yes the TM is now not allowed in our house, his last visit was a week ago, friday. He is 4 years old and up to date on vaccine, he is also tested today after tyson was +ve for Distemper and he is -ve.

Will keep Tyson seperated with any dogs for now.

Prayers your pup is strong enough to overcome this...stay strong and keep your pup comfortable....positive thoughts don't heal but they do help to keep hope alive!

I'm so sorry to hear this. There are also a small percentage of dogs who don't generate an immune system response to the parvo or distemper vaccines. And depending on when he was vaccinated, if he still had his mom's antibodies in his system, it can inhibit the vaccine somewhat (which is why they do a series of puppy shots)

Whatever the problem was that the vaccine didn't work, I'm very sorry. Sending good vibes out to your dog and your family to get through this.
