Parvo is usually a disease of puppies and the risk to your adult dogs that are fully vaccinated is small. It is possible for parvo to still be present in the home environment through prior contamination from the early stages of the disease. Parvo can stay in the environment for up to 7 months. Cleaning contaminated indoor areas and then disinfecting with a diluted bleach solution will kill the virus.
