I just visited my best friend who's puppy had parvo...he is doing fine now, and has been fine for about a week...

I was just wondering if cats can get parvo from dogs. She has a cat, as do I. Thank you so much.

No, I don't think a cat can become infected with parvo from a dog. Feline parvo is only infectious to cats and I assume the same is true for canine parvo.

"Feline Parvo (Panleukopenia Virus)

This virus is similar in nature to the dog's parvo virus, however is only infectious to cats. Most cats affected are young and unvaccinated. In vaccinated cats, the disease is virtually non-existent."

Thank you for the great link and information - I was concerned because all day the puppy had been crawling all over me and chewing my shoelaces...things puppies do...and I was concerned that I would bring something home on me...thank you again.
