    Getting the same strain again is unlikely, at least for awhile. Duration of immunity after recovery from natural infection is not well known; most work has focused on how long vaccination can protect a pet; that seems to be at least 3 years after an appropriate initial series of immunizations.

    he can but very rare. once they get parvo and are better it acts like a shot building up an immunity any were from 6 months to the rest of their lives. usually a dog that has already had it will not get sick again. my dog never did and my vet that is what my vet told me.
