That seemed a little extreme but when a vet tells you to drive your car offroad and into someone's property ... well, that seemed serious to me.
Yeah, my vet was pretty adamant too. She said you can fix an accident on a pee pad in a crate much easier than parvo. When I was reading up on the frequency or parvo infection in fox, I just had to stop reading. They have been in my yard before. But, you can't live in a bubble. You can just stack the deck in your favor and bit your nails for another 8 weeks. I also had a completely unfounded raccoon roundworm scare with my first born (I read about and she had some variety of animal poo in her mouth the day before at the park). And of course a brain eating amoeba scare here and there. Only with the first though lol By the third you reason that goose poop is good for their immune system. (it's not, it's filthy).
