we are suppose to get another puppy but i dont want to if it will get sick just from being around where sam was......any help is welcomed :?: :!:
Any dog that is suspected of being infected should be isolated from other dogs. Other dogs should be vaccinated, if they haven?t already been.
CDV doesn?t last long outside the dog?s body; heat, sunlight, most detergents, soaps, and various chemicals inactivate it. After an infected dog has been removed from the premises, contaminated objects and living areas should be disinfected with a 1:30 bleach-water solution.
If a dog has died from CDV infection, pet owners should wait about one month before introducing a new puppy or dog into the home. Contaminated objects and living areas should be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected with a 1:30 bleach-water solution.
