If I were you I would take my other animals to the vet as well. I hope that your animals are current on vaccinations. The Distemper Virus is Highly contagious!!

From Animal Health Channel:
Multidog households
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.

One-dog households
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.
