Dogs can get parvo from other dogs, cat faeces, or even soil. It is believed that “reservoirs” of the disease exist in areas where infected animals have died and their bodies remain to rot.

Other ways it can spread are through direct contact with an already-infected dog’s bodily fluids such as saliva, urine, vomit and stool; indirectly through licking paws after they come into contact with any contamination on the ground (such as water bowls); ingesting food containing traces of virus particles left behind when an animal vomits or has diarrhoea;
