Odd behaviors *after parvo
Hello, my puppy is four months old, he got sick last week with Parvo, (not sure why, he had all his vaccination and he had never been to the park, his vet said it was ‘really bad luck’, we are in Mexico, in a hot city in the north, so, there’s more parvo in this time of the year, but we even cleaned our shoes after coming from anyplace, anyway somehow he got it). He is now okay, more than okay, thank God, he was hospitalized for three days at the vet. A small part of me still think it was not parvo. But anyway, when this happened he was about to start a group class and have a couple of private lessons at home to understand him better. None of this happened. He got sick on Wednesday 30th, now he is all normal, in fact he has been quite normal since he got back, no vomits, no diarrhea. He appears hungrier every day and wants to play every moment, he is recovering his small weight loss. Yet, he is also teething since he is back.
But, he is more vocal now, he looks more confident, and he barks often, really often… he even barked at my dad today, which was really strange, and he barked at a dog in a YouTube video… and he is also, biting us again, he was not doing that to us before the parvo (he only nipped/bite my 9 year old sister), now he tries to bite all of us at times (not all the time)….
He is more inside the house and, in his indoors space, (he has like a place with small fences inside the house, your version of a crate), because we were told to keep him resting as much as possible. But again, he has a lot of energy right now. We have not allowed him to go to the backyard or to use all of his toys.
Is the barking thing to everything normal? (he barked at his poop today) What about the biting/nipping? Are these behaviors because of the ‘resting time’ of this week? I meant like a person that has been grounded to be ‘inside’ against its will….
