I do know that Parvo is a terrible way to die, so it is good you are taking precautions.
No Barb. No dog has been out there except for our dalmation we had over 2 years ago. She didn't have Parvo. I just read that Parvo lives in the grass and dirt and I'm terrified that Sam will contact it as she's been quite weak at the start. She goes for her second Parvo vaccines this Friday so I'll check with the Vet then. Thanks. In the meantime, I'm putting pads all over the floor but she keeps missing them. Argh!
The supplemental food she eats makes her go and go all day. I tried giving her the dry food a couple of times daily and that worked okay. There were not too many accidents. I hope the vet takes her off the supplemental stuff~it's expensive, smells nasty and gross to clean up.
I'm a germaphobic so I'm trying to deal with this as patiently as I can. Sigh!
