When the parvovirus first started to hit dogs, when there were puppies in the house we would make everyone who came in spray the bottoms of their shoes with a bleach solution we had in a spray bottle on our porch. Then everyone had to take their shoes off and wash their hands thoroughly before handling the puppies.
Did it work? Who knows? We had no vaccine at the time and I did have 2 puppies come down with the virus. But we felt that at least we were killing any viruses of any sort that were on the shoes. --- On Tue, 12/9/08, [EMAIL PROTECTED] <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] Question re: keeping them healthy > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Cc: "Pat Kachur" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > Date: Tuesday, December 9, 2008, 9:50 PM > just saw article in AARP magazine about a new germ that only > Clorox can kill it. it is popping up in hospitals all over. > said that if go to hospital, make sure all coming into your > room wash hands throughly with lots of soap and water. also > bed rails, etc should all be washed down. seems lately, we > can get sicker in hospital than at home. one lady died from > it. dorlis > ---- Pat Kachur <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > If you are concerned, you could wipe off your shoes > with some type of "germ > > killer" before you come in the house. > > > > > > ----- Original Message ----- > > From: "Lisa Borden" > <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> > > To: <email@example.com> > > Sent: Saturday, November 15, 2008 10:32 AM > > Subject: [Felvtalk] Question re: keeping them healthy > > > > > > > > > > > > > I am at work and I just thought of something.
