I can say, I was the same as most average pet owners. I did have a Parvo pup in the yard (she did not make it) waited a year got a puppy, first shot and in the yard she went for play time! No issues but maybe I got double lucky? Maybe Struddell was immune after the first shot maybe the virus was gone or maybe because Heidi always went to the far side of the yard...she saved a future pup, don't know??
But now I know and "I' won't take a chance with a future puppy. The vet, yep you can ask him but...I had Boxers a commonly used anesthetic, Acepromazine will kill Boxers! I always addressed this issue with a new vet, Studdell White Boxer had two vets, I get any flack ..I'm out!
They don't necessarily know everything! Oh and finally snopes.com: Trifexis Kills Dogs?
BEWARE: FLEA TREATMENTS TRIFEXIS, COMFORTIS, ASSURITY containing SPINOSAD/Spinetoram KILLING DOGS & CATS
New drugs not good news! If he mentions either ask for an alternative!
Yeah kind of a lot of info but it's the basics!
Congrads on your pup!

Do a search for Parvo, don't want to start another thread but I will tell you what I now know after one Parvo pup and 15 years of dogie daddy-hood.
Three shots for Parvo in puppy pack why three?? Because the first shot may or may not give immunity, second shot in the specified time..may or may not give immunity. third shot and two to three weeks puppy should be good to go. Some say two weeks others say three.
What this means is that after your puppies first shot...he is not good to go to puppy class! Most likely he'll be fine but most of the other puppies there are on the same program and if one of them has been exposed..your puppy may or may not be at risk!
Those that take no chances, don't put there puppy on the ground anywhere another dog has been until he is at least 16 weeks old and should have full immunity by then.
Yep this would impact early socialization but that's another thread! If I got anything wrong someone please clarify!

|coulter||So if I use just the bleach. Mix 1tbs per gallon of water. Wash it all off with that mixture. What should I use after that? To make sure there is no bleach residue that will harm the pup? I want to clean it tonight cause I bring him home tomorrow.|

|coulter||Hmm ok, I will look into both those options. Thanks!|

I would select a kennel specific product designed to deal specifically with parvovirus, bacteria and viruses.
Something like Kennel Kare

|coulter||So here's another question. I let a friend of a friend borrow my little carrying kennel for his puppy at the time. And now I have gotten it back and will be using it for my new pup on Thursday. But I want to clean it out real well before then. What should I use? That would kill any possible germs or diseases. But also be safe for my pup? Thanks!!|

Our males was the smallest of the litter, he has out grown 3 of the litter mates that we keep in contact with. It seems that you can't tell....but it is fun to wait and see. Miles head was smaller than Millie's as well, now....his head is two of hers...and he is much wider in the chest and rear. I think it is a waiting game. :-)
