My dog has had diarrhea since last week and still has it now that he has lost weight. He still wants to eat and is playful. I looked up his symptoms and even images of the diarreha and it looks like parvo I am so scared right now he found a chihuahua and he doesn't seem to have these things happening to him. Where we live in our apartments we were told to walk all dogs in one area so how do we now if our dog got it from where we have to walk to him. Can me and my kids catch this from the dogs? I don't have the money for a vet I don't know what to do.View Thread
