    Can Rabbits transmit Parvo?

    For about a week or two we had a wild rabbit in our yard. We just brought home a new lab puppy and she uses the yard for the bathroom. Can rabbits transmit parvo? Just want to make sure, I cant find anything that confirms this, but i thought I would ask to be on the safe side. Thanks!

    It's possible they could track it in from other dogs in the neighborhood, over grass, etc, but they do not carry parvo as a host. Parvo can live up to 1 year in the soil, so I wouldn't take chances.
    You can think that I'm wrong, but don't stop thinking.

    Parvo actually lives a lot longer than a year, but no rabbits aren't hosts. It only affects dogs. But, I agree...it could have been carried in by the rabbit.
