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.
