Repeater: In the unlikely event that he gets parvo and actually needs to be supported through it, you'll have plenty of time between the onset of obvious serious illness and any risk of death. At least a few days. Keep reading accurate stuff. No reason to be "terrified." Better to focus. On his overall nutrition, development, fitness, folate status
