I have a 6.5 month old red Doberman that just contracted parvovirus despite her having completed all of her vaccines. This is mostly just a warning - ask your vet about a 4th round for extra protection! My puppy, Juneau, was given the normal 3 rounds but I was informed at the emergency center that many vets will administer an additional round for breeds that are ultra susceptible. I don't take my puppy to any dog parks, so she contracted it from some bit of soil in a suburban area with no stray dogs. Be careful!!!

so sorry to hear this is she going to be ok??

and yes vaccines are a protection not a guarantee and it pays to stay on top of the new protocols for the different vaccines.....
