Wait 2 years old??? I am confused.
We wait to take puppies to a dog park until after 20 weeks, knowing there is parvo at the park and knowing (per the vet) that after 4 sets of shot they are as protected as they ever will be. Adult dogs fight off parvo like it's no biggie. Unless I am am missing something... We have very high cases of parvo here in Florida, but as far as I know after the pups have their shots, no one worries and they are off to play with friends on parvo land...
So personally I think your pup is fine and has all the immunity

Yeah doing a titers now is pointless as you just vaccinated. Your dog will be fine. Healthy adult vaccinated dogs don't get Parvo. Their immune system is easily able to fight off the virus

|Cara Fusinato||Just keep in mind you may not have a puppy who has not had full shots in that yard for years and years. If you need another dog, must be an adult or older puppy that has complete shots. I had a friend who got a pup that immediately died of parvo on the property. Next dog was an adult and fine. The next was a puppy several years later and we live in a hot dry climate. She got parvo but was saved -- but she had parvo on the property AGAIN. Next was an older pup like 6 months old and was fine. Your adult dog should be fine as long as he had shots before the exposure. IF you are real worried, since you vaccinated him again, wait another week and he should be double safe. Just no pups in the yard.|

|middleofnowhere||Why are you going to call the vet? You already had him in for a vaccine. Doing a titer so soon after a vaccine seems pointless. You would do the titer BEFORE the vaccine.|

Your vet should have suggested a titer test before a vaccination in opinion or at least haver said "in my opinion your dog should be fine."
Now your here at least with Parvo shots
