    Could my 6 week old puppy have parvo?

    My other thread, the little one died.. I woke up to it dead, i was planning on bringing it to the vet that morning but i was too late.. http://www.dogforums.com/dog-health-...tml#post974865 (My 6 week old puppy looks sick, how can i help her?)

    when the puppy died, i called around asking if they could find the cause of her death because i want to know how it died, it lasted 6 weeks even though it was small and i was concerned about the other 4 puppies, but it cost too much so i couldn't do it..

    the mom stopped giving milk around 1 or 2 weeks ago, it just isn't producing milk so i bought formula milk, i even bough the formula powder. the 4 puppies stay in a box with blankets and such and they walk around my room. the 3 puppies seem playful, there poo is okay they play and eat normally. The other puppy eats normally too, it bites the other puppies sometimes but my concern is how it walks weird like its crazy or something. im just concerned i don't want the other ones to die, that's the only symptom right now that im seeing. she hasn't vommited or anything. i hope whatever killed the little one doesn't go to the other puppies.

    You need to have the puppies checked for Distemper. ASAP. Was the mom vaccinated? Where did they come from? I'm sorry your other pup passed away...

    Ditto the vet visit for all of them to get a check up, especially the one walking funny.

    I agree.....Cracker and Spotted Nikes both helped me diagnose Aston with distemper...if you haven't had the pups checked you need to do so. Aston was vaccinated at the shelter we got him from but he didn't have all boosters. Distemper is a "waxing and weaning" disease, meaning they may look "fine" one day andthey are completely out of it and ill the next.

    Some symptoms of distemper are:
    mucus from the nose
    runny poo
    vomitting
    temperatures
    hardening of the foot pads
    loss of appitite
    lathargy

    syptoms that the disease has gone neurologic:
    involutary movments or noises
    muscle spasms

    These are just some symptoms. Aston did not display all of these are first. some dogs may only display a few symptoms.
