Didn't know that about California. luckily I didn't buy her?
Yes I'm aware about parvo. Unfortunately our last pup died from parvo. She did deficate and throw up on our laminate and outside on our patio. Which we cannot bleach. Im very scared of the parvo getting this new pup and am doing my best to prevent that again. By far one of the worst experiences of my life. But in reality parvo is everywhere. Any suggestions?
I wish you mis misunderstood that she's in a den. She's almost definitely going to out grow her space in a few weeks. Trying to work on a back up plan.
Why can't you bleach the laminate and the patio? One glug of bleach to a gallon of water should not harm the surfaces, but it will kill any parvovirus it comes into contact with. But in reality, you probably have virus embedded everywhere on the property--everywhere that dog stepped, he could have shed virus. Your carpets, your furniture, your walls. Your puppy is living in a land mine.
All you can do at this point is clean everything with bleach, and pray.
I have to ask... what inspired you to get a vulnerable young puppy so soon after having a parvo dog in your household?
Honestly, I don't mean to rain on your parade, but you can't lock a GSD in a bedroom until vaccines are complete. Puppies need to be trained and socialized, they need to get out and play and experience the world, and the window for this closes after a certain age. Believe me, you don't want an antisocial GSD that is afraid of everything, and the breed has a lot of problems with this in the first place.
Unfortunately, I have no more suggestions except maybe to let someone else raise and socialize the pup until she is fully vaccinated.
