My DDs pup has parvo shes at the vet now doing extremely well, but I'm wondering after she comes home can she get parvo again? Some websites say yes, some say no she has a life long immunity to the virus is this true? I live on 5 acres, and thats going to be a LOT of bleach to the yard because I don't have the slightest idea as to were exactly shes been in the yard?

Bleach will not kill parvo unless all organic matter(feces and hair) is removed, so bleaching the yard would be very hard and ineffective. If the pup survives parvo she should be fine, but do not get another pup under 1 yr old for at least 1 yr. You should limit her to a floor that is easily bleached and a small part of the yard that you can burn later for several weeks after she comes home...in case she is still shedding the virus from her system. After she receives all of her boosters for DA2PPV she should have a very strong immune response against parvo, but recurrence is not unheard of esp in bully breeds and rotties. Some pups bounce back from parvo with no long lasting effects, but often the gastro system is damaged because of the way the virus attacks the lining of the intestinal tract. I hope your puppy comes home healthy and happy soon. Good luck!
