Dogs: Parvo, Questions, Not Sure If Urgent?
First things first, I apologize if this seems rushed, angry, or various other emotions. It's just my luck has been in the toilet lately and this is icing on the cake if it's another thing for me to worry about.
** Also, note, my Vet is closed and I just found out about this within the last hour and a half. I will be placing a call as soon as they open in the morning. This is just to prepare me for anything if need be.**
So yesterday I was at someone's house and they had gotten a new puppy 4 days ago. So I was playing with the puppy, holding the puppy, and just general loving on the puppy (because who can resist puppies.) Then I came home to MY dog.
Well apparently yesterday after I left the puppy started acting sick and it had diarrhea(Had that while I was there too, they thought it was because he was eating the big dog food) and was vomiting. They took the puppy in to the vet today and the puppy got tested for Parvo. Welp it came back positive.
So I came home to, interacted, and played with my dog in the same clothes that I played with the Parvo positive puppy in. I don't know much about Parvo other than it's a virus, it weakens the immune system, it's highly contagious, and it can kill dogs.
My question is, is my dog at risk for getting it? Is there anything I should watch out for? Any other info I may need? Jetta is UTD on everything but that's never a guarantee.
I may be overreacting but with the way things have been going lately I've been on my toes about EVERY little thing.
And here's a pic of my girl just because I think she's gorgeous.
