my 10 year olds new puppy died last night from parvo. She had her one day before we had to take her to the vet. Does anyone know how to remove the virus from the yard? Will burning the grass take care of it? How long should we wait before getting another puppy?
I have asked several people at the vets office and got a different answer every time.

Bleach! The whole yard!!
You also need to wash/bleach everything the puppy came into contact with (bowls, beds crate, etc.) or just throw them away sealed up in garbage bags.
I recommend waiting at least 6 months to introduce a new dog into your household.
