Parvo :/

My cousin got a new puppy on Sunday, he asked if he could bring over Monday to meet my dobie, me without thinking said yes, bad idea . So he comes Monday and they play, everything went fine. Turns out puppy wasn't vaccinated, so they take him to the vet Tuesday to get his vaccines, turns out he had parvo. So now I'm afraid for my dobie. Today I feed him and he threw up, I then take him to the vet and explained everything. The vet asked me how old my dog is and I said 2 going on 3, then they check his vaccine history and they said he doesn't have it cause he's already had 2 full sets if his vaccines. They didn't even check him, all they said was to bring him in if he keeps throwing up, I'm really worried

I don't think I would be worried. Some other symptoms are
Lethargic. If your dog normally likes to play and has high energy, this is the clearest sign that something is wrong. You could say they act depressed.
Lack of Appetite. The more common strains attack the digestive system.
Vomiting with no change in diet. It usually looks clear and foamy.
Bloody Diarrhea.
Stronger Feces Odor.

Go to another Vet and ask for a specific Parvo test to be run.
Almost all decent Vet Clinics can run it in house. We can and we are not an Emergency Vet Services.
Despite the fact that your dog has been vaccinated, you can not believe everything. Were the vaccs really done at the place of weening/breeder, or next person? Were the vaccs compromised, as in not refrigerated properly? The questions could go on and on. Your dog could have shed immunity. Or, your dog's immunity could be decreased, for whatever multitude of reasons.
If a dog was displaying the signs/symptoms of exposure to Parvo, we would have started supportive therapy, immediately.
Go to another Vet. My advice is, don't go the least expensive. The first visit may be cheaper at the onset, but then you may not get the best preventive therapies. Then, you could be confronted with a potential bill in the hundreds to thousands of dollars if your beloved pet "crashes" and you end up in a ER Vet. Sometimes, people have to put their beloved pet down because they can not afford thousands of dollars of emergency treatment.
Look up on the internet, Banfield, they are owned by Veterinarians, and do everything by the book. We are NOT affiliated with them, but, you will get correct treatment.
Good Luck.

Thanks, I'm going to go check out another vet to check him out, he's still very energetic, hasn't lost appetite or anything, but I rather play it safe

Honda has some really good advice but I wouldn't panic if your dog isn't showing symptoms although I believe it takes 4-5 days from exposure for the parvo to present itself. I have had foster puppies become sick with parvo but my own dogs were just fine.

Here is some more info on Parvo

My experience

My so bright Rush home on a Sunday. Taken to vet on a Tuesday cuz Monday was holiday. He checked out fine. Wednesday night early Thurs my son advised that Rush app reared to be trying to throw up but nothing came up. Thursday he refused all water so waited for vet to open and rushed him in. Within 10 mins I was told he had Parvo. Asked vet to do what was necessary to try and save him and off he went to hospital portion of clinic. After about a week our boy came home healthy!

My other problem was we were dog sitting for my best friend, who was in Croatia for 6 weeks, dog was 2 years old. I was also concerned about Maggie's health. Our vet advised if she was fully vaccinated she would be fine. I showed him her records and he was sure she would be fine. I watched her like a hawk for any Parvo symptoms and she was fine.

Dobejazz, you are correct, if a dog has, indeed, been properly vaccinated, he would not be a victim to Parvo. I can not tell you, how many times, puppies and/or dogs have come out of a certain shelter in the Chicago area, that are full blown Parvo. By the time the owners bring them in, they are near death, or die. The new owners believe the shot record and "just think they haven't eaten for days, or sleeping too much, or explosion loose stools or vomiting, just means that the dog is in a new home and will get over it." By the time they come in, they are SO bad.

I heard there's a new strand of parvo going around. Some that are immune to the vaccines given.

I know of dogs who have been vaccinated that have gotten it recently. Not to scare you more just so you are aware
