That's the thing,
Until you've had the ENTIRE set of (parvo)vaccinations, the shots mean nothing and protect against nothing. The immunity isn't built up until the completion of the shots. Actually, it's about 2 weeks after the last shot that you are generally safe.
3 months and 2 shots is not a vaccinated dog and is just as susceptable to the virus as a dog that hasn't had any shots.
There are too many people that think their dogs are safe because they've had 1 or 2 parvo vacc's. It's not true at all.
You know what sucks? He got parvo a day or two before he was going to get his 3rd vaccination! I guess he was more close to 9 weeks than 12 weeks. He was such a little guy when he got it. Parvo is so scary!
