Sure makes me glad NOT to have a pup right now:
Gal in my office has a 4mo Aussie Pup... had 3 rounds of Parvo ML Vaccines. from reputable breeder, etc.
A friend of hers got a 6mo old pound puppy... Dog had also gone thru 3 rounds of Parvo vax- Same vet office as the aussie pup, but totally different timing of vaccines... months apart
Pound pup gets diagnosed with Parvo.. Initially pretty sick but bounced back.
The gal in my office got pretty worried about her aussie pup.. she had let them play together about a month ago. Her pup was in good shape last week.
She went ahead and took the aussie pup into the vet for a 4th booster...just in case,
She went out of town on Friday (10/11).. The aussie pup went back to the breeders home to be boarded for the weekend.
Saturday night, he is SICK.. mucusy poop
Takes him to vet: Diagnosed with Parvo... Vet says levels too high to be vaccine titer.
Aussie Pup was hospitalised thru Monday, and sent home.
Was pretty depressed on Monday and tuesday, but is back to being a terror now.
Pretty concerning that 2 well documented vaccinated young dogs, are dealing with this... Vaccine failure is my theory as both had been vaccinated at the same clinic...
Feel pretty sorry for the Aussie breeder.. she had 2 litters of pups on her place, when the aussie pup was being boarded there... granted no direct contact, but still
Both the pound puppy and the aussie pup had been going to good ole Petsmart for puppy classes.. which is a pretty logical exposure.. But still shocked to see the vaccine failure.
