    Hi all,

    I'm seeing a lot of sad stories regarding parvo virus in dogs, I'm really anxious that my pup will some how contract this. Is there any way to completely avoid the chances of catching parvo? My dog will be fully vaccinated but is there anything can do to be extra safe before his vaccinations are complete?

    If you don't live in an area that has had a recent outbreak you're probably okay.
    However, considering you've already gone against forum advice and are set on getting this pup from a BYB, I would say parvo is the least of your worries. Unhealthy dogs produce unhealthy offspring.

    There is a chance that your puppy to be could come to you carrying parvovirus unless the byb has been very careful about not exposing them to risk

    See proof that the mother was vaccinated as per the vaccine's regime; antibodies carry to the foetal pups which gives protection until the vaccines take effect.

    Also please can we keep comments relevant to this post. I'm not having another debate regarding my pup, I'm just looking for advice regarding parvo.
