    Nekhbet, we just found out the rescue KNEW the whole litter had Parvo, said nothing to my friend. The rescue lady also knew Hooch was going to meet the pup and said NOTHING.
    I am going to check what Hooch got when he was rescued. It was all done by the rescue but I might have the papers for it - going to look now.

    I cant sleep... worried
    Will keep everything crossed for you and Hooch - 'bunny-girl' and heaps of for you both !

    I am sure that he will be fine - but I am also really pleased that you have been in contact with your vet.

    Take care !

    He had Protech C4 and Protech C21 when he was rescued (March 2012)... Not sure if it is the booster or not? They told us to come back 12 months later for his next vaccine.
    He had Protech C4 and Protech BB 4 months ago.

    Aware of that, used to keep them. The images i attached demonstrate this also. I was going with 'mutt' on the grounds of the barrel chest, given that Belgians of all varieties are narrow but deep-chested with distinct waistlines.

    I got Frosty at 10 weeks old, she'd had two shots but needed the third. They did explain to me about getting the extra shot. They didn't really explain about needing to wait two weeks after, but the vet I went to for the last shot did. They were more anxious that I didn't let her run round like a mad thing with stitches in for the desex - so I didn't take her down the park until after that - and I probably waited another two weeks after that (because of what vet said).

    I can't believe the rescue rehomed puppies they knew had parvo. Or found out the litter had parvo and then didn't tell the new owners. There must be some law against that. Probably something to do with the primary industries - knowingly spreading a disease... Name (obvious google obscure hint - sound alike not spell alike?) and shame. And if they're listed on pet rescue, I'd inform them too.

    My pups all get 2 shots, one at 6-8 weeks and one at 10-12 weeks and that according to our vets is sufficient with the newer vaccines. I then give them a booster 12 months later and then once every 3 years with the 3 year vaccine. I have a friend who lost most of his working kelpie litter to parvo despite the care he takes, we are still not sure how it happened. My dog have had a lot of contact with him and his property after the event and they are all fine.

    Hooch was found at 9 month old so maybe it was too late for the vet to give him the booster? I am not sure?
    I feel torn about naming and shaming as I loved the woman who runs the rescue, she rescued my dog who we love so much. She saves so many lives every year and she devotes herself to it. My 10 year old son donated all his yearly savings to her rescue last year.

    For the life of me I do not understand why she did not tell my friend about it. My friend even rang her to ask why the pup is not eating properly and she told her that it may be just settling in issues and not to worry - while all the litter mates were sick with parvo!! My friend at the same phone conversation said oh Hooch is here for a play and the rescue lady did not say anything! (my friend also has an older dog!).
    I dont understand why she did not say anything and put 2 other dogs at risk!!?? I am so mad I blame her but I also blame myself for knowing better than to let him play with a pup that only had her vaccines.
    I got him some immune pills to help his immune system fight it off if he gets it.
    Any idea if found at 9 months old he should have had a booster to the normal vaccine? he only had the normal vaccine last year and this year, no boosters or puppy shots.

    Sounds irresponsible from that way you've told it and I can imagine you being angry.

    By all means give him immune pills so long as they are safe. If my adults were exposed I would keep them on elevated vitamin C for two weeks.

    I hope Hooch will be ok... I'm sure he will! He's lucky he's got a great mum and family who care about him enough to worry

    We got Meika at 12 months and Molly at 18 months, they both had 2 injections before we got them and we got their 3rd done.

    That's awful about the rescue, the rescue group that I foster cats for also has dogs and she's seen so many dogs die of parvo lately that she's actually making the foster carers restrict the puppies to INSIDE only until they've had all 3 shots, she would rather pay for and provide puppy pads for them all than risk them getting parvo.. definitely two extremes of the scale!
