    and pose your comments and then pose questions based on his answers.  Then you need to direct the discussion with Markos instead of the whole dkos community who find your dialog baseless and stupid.

    You decides to set yourself up a a spokesperson for a movement I am not sure we are any of us qualified to respond to understandiung or defending.

    From here on, it is just questiona and followupPreventing Parvo
    Preventing parvo in your dog is a two-step approach:

    F I R S T:
    Vaccinating your puppy and keeping your adult dog up-to-date with regular booster shots can prevent Parvovirus. Consult your veterinarian to determine an appropriate inoculation schedule.

    S E C O N D:
    Follow these precautions to prevent the spread of the virus:

    - Do not allow your puppy to socialize where other dogs have been until
    your veterinarian indicates it is safe to do so - - after puppy shots. It is
    much better to forego early socialization than to take unnecessary risks.
    After all, you cannot train a dead puppy!

    - Ask your veterinarian about what vaccination protocol is best for your pet and stick to it.

    - If you have been in an area where dogs frequent – park, pet store, etc. – disinfect your shoes and keep them outside your home. If parvo is rampant in your area, this also applies to your clothing. Be sure and wash your hands and then disinfect them using a solution of one part bleach to 30 parts water.

    - There are several parvo disinfectants on the market but regular bleach is still 100% effective and much less costly. The dilution is one part of chlorine bleach to 30 parts of water. REMEMBER: bleach will remove color from dyed fabrics or objects, so the commercial disinfectants have that advantage.

    Keep spray bottles filled with your disinfectant solution at each entry to your home and yard; ask guests to spray their shoes and hands. Pick up feces and vomitus immediately and then disinfect the area. It is much better to
    kill the grass or bleach the concrete than risk your pup! Keep the pup’s environment clean at all times.

    Caution: Never, ever spray the bleach preparation on the animal at any time!
