We must all work together to reduce the risks of parvovirus. Thank you all for your support - it really does seem to be a very virulent strain and from what RAH see all vaccines are not equal in their protection, or have not been given at the right intervals and not completed courses. Also puppies are being separated from their mothers and sold at too young an age - often being exposed at pet stores to residual virus from previously infected puppies.
LWDLIK - Thanks Dr Jill. This is scary and sad.
