    My sympathies. It sounds like you were careful and prudent, somethings things happen in spite of all the precautions.

    That is a real sad story. It makes me glad I elected to keep my pups through the 3 month mark though they are a ton of work. Sorry to hear of you heart breaking loss.

    Agree! This can happen at any time. You did nothing wrong and there's nothing you could have done to prevent this. Do not beat yourself up! I'm so sorry!

    I have a friend who's dog contracted parvo at 6 mo. old, after all the vaccinations, and being most diligent on the grounds which the dog was allowed to roam. Fortunately, after 10 days at the vet, she survived.

    I suspect wild animals that can carry parvo - coyotes, etc. We always think of unvaccinated dogs, but I wonder if the wild critters are more the problem?

    I have 3 wk old pups here now. Parvo and distemper are two real worries until the full short regiment is completed. I've dealt previously with parvo in an 8 wk old pup & it scares me all the more with these pups.

    Sorry for your loss.....

    Just some further info I learned with my experience with previous litters and the parvo case. My tendency has been to attempt to keep the dam nursing for as long as possible to help provide some resistance. But that has a downside too. The longer the pups nurse the less effect the first puppy shots have. So there is a dilemma, wean the pups early, reduce their protection from the dam but gain earlier protection from the puppy shots or keep the pups protected longer by weaning later but delay inoculation effects.

    I'm sorry for your loss also. These little pups can slip away so easily.

    RIP little Cash.

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013
