From YesBiscuit!: Charlotte pound keeps mum about confirmed parvo

YesBiscuit! just reported that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg ACC was notified of a confirmed case of parvo in a dog adopted through a satellite event but declined to inform adopters of other dogs at the event.  Fourteen other dogs were adopted at the event along with Ginger, and their possibly unaware owners may be taking them to dog parks, training classes and play dates.

The Koret Shelter Medicine program at UC-Davis recommends that a dog incubating the virus and its feces should be kept away from puppies and unvaccinated dogs for 2 weeks.

From wsoctv.com: Woman says dog adopted at SouthPark was infected with parvovirus.
