My Fatey (Staffordshire Terrier) had parvo in 2006, it was so horrible :( She was 3 years old at the time and after a good few visits at the vet, she was finally cleared. My neighbors property had a parvo outbreak and it never went away. I moved there and my dog caught it. She was always vaccinated. It's scary and horrible, lots of nights up tending to her, hand feeding her pedialite. She could hold no bodily functions, so I was always covered and needed to wash myself and her many times a day. Horrible horrible.
We don't vaccinate now though, but always do until 3 years of age.
Just to add, my dog is fed high quality grain free dog food and still gets fleas, she's an indoor dog. My cat as well is fed the same type. Interesting. We only get fleas once a year though, August/Sept.
