Ok so as some of you may know I foster dogs from time to time whenever I can. My dogs stay current on vaccines and are not what im worried about. But 1 of my foster dogs just had 3 puppies, and a little over a month ago we had 2 foster puppies here. 1 died and 1 is still here just fine. The 1 that died we are pretty sure it was parvo, because his siblings at the shelter died from parvo around the same time as him. The other little 1 seemed to get semi sick but he hung in and is just fine now and has had 2 puppy shots. But now my concern shifts to the new babies. We have tiles/wood floors so we are using a lot of bleach, will this be enough, is there anything else we can do besides puppy shots asap??? please help any advice would be great.

Well its not that I want to go out and buy a puppy. Its that I have a foster dog that had puppies. At our shelter any pregnant female that comes in is PTS. So I took 1 in to foster, We only had the puppy here 2 days before he got sick and we had him in a kind of quarantine because he was feral and so didn't take him outside because he would have ran off so he went on paper. There is no one else in the little cruddy town that will foster this momma and her babies, so its take chances here or be pts for the babies.

Ty for your response, it is a city shelter with low funds little volunteers (almost none but i go weekly) and very low fosters. The people that work there do what they can to save as many animals as possible and to avoid euthanasia which is suppose to be at 10 days but rarely happens at that time. I have had the mom here for about 3 weeks, and her puppies are 1 day old now. They are in my back bathroom where the foster puppies never were. The foster puppies were pretty limited on where I let them go because they were feral when we got them in and they would have all been PTS without foster (they were fear biters) we did save 1 of 4 and he is still here and has just got his 2nd vaccination. It has been 3 wks since the sick puppy passed. We bleached the area the puppies were in and used separate shoes and such as soon as the 1st puppy was sick. So I'm really hopeful these puppies will be ok. The mom just got a vaccination when the puppies were born not sure if it will help or not. I will be buying a lot more bleach I think lol. Thanks everyone
