found this Ad on craigslist: 14 purebred irish setter puppies were born yesterday all will be ready to go in 8 weeks! pick your puppy now before they are all spoken for! asking 50$ deposit on males 100 for females come and vist them today! they would love to meet you! for those of you who dont know about parvo or how it works: paro is a deadly virus that affects dogs and puppies cardiovascular sytems and is HIGHLY CONTAGEIOUS!! parvovirus can survive for over a year in soil thru extreme heat and extreme cold weather. dispite what some people believe pure bleach is not always effective against parvo. all it takes is someone walking thru grass where a parvo posative puppy had been even a year earlier for the parvovirus to cling onto that persons shoes then that person walks into the same room as the newborn puppies, momma dog walks or lies down on the floor where that person ahd been standing then goes back to her puppies every single one of those puppies die becuase of the parvo. or heres another scenario a year ago a person had an indoor puppy who either died or survived having parvo a year later this person decideds they want another puppy and oh look at those adorable newborn puppies decideds to have a look at them bam all puppies have parvo. a veternarian will always tell you that a puppy having parvo in your home is somthing you should not take lightly and should wait ATLEAST 3 years before bringing another puppy into the home becuase the threat of parvo is still a very high risk. unless yo uwant to use kennel disinfectant on the floors,walls,cielings,windows,counters,everything and rip out the carpeting and get rid of all furniture or soft surfaces. ive talked to people whos puppies got parvo after they moved into a new home probably becuase a puppy lived there ebfore who had parvo ive ehard of people who went to a house where there freinds puppy had died of parvo 6 months earlier only to have there own puppy die a few weeks later of parvo. ive heard of quite a few litters of puppies being whiped out within days after ahving someone new comein to meet them. so please if you have a litter of puppies DONOT allow anyone enw around them untill after there first round of shots its very difficult to see the beginings of parvo is very young puppies as the first symptom is lethargy, then fever by the time they are feverish thers little to be done. so i e-mailed these people warning them of the dangers of parvo sadly they e-mailed me back saying "please dont butt in these puppies are healthy their NOT sickly we know what we are doing"
