|Need to take a deep breath here! I'm totally stressing myself out about this!
My question, if anyone knows, is what % of ADULT dogs with no symptoms would be shedding this?
I was supposed to work for a private group home the weekend after getting my puppy (he'll be 10.5 weeks by then and have had his first vax around 8 weeks) and they have an old 'farm dog' (Golden lab they, IIRC, rescued from one of their kids who couldn't handle it - I would assume that he got his puppy vaccines) and also she told me they are dog sitting for someone (unknown) during the previous month for a week - so their droppings will be still in the lawn, I would guess. I'm pretty sure these are also adult dogs. I can call to find out if they were vaxed.
If all these dogs had their puppy vaccines, what are the chances that there could be parvo? Or if they weren't vaccinated but are adults but just three dogs ... what are the chances?
What I'm looking for is is this a HUGE concern or am I worrying too much?
Are we talking 10% chance? Or 1 in 1000? Anyone know?
