Parvo is a condition caused by a virus. In dogs, this condition is caused by a virus called canine parvovirus. This virus spread from the feces of infected dogs and contaminated objects. Its symptoms are diarrhea that can be bloody, vomiting and dehydration.

Dogs can not get parvo from cats because canine parvovirus cause infection in dogs only while feline parvovirus that is also called feline distemper virus causes sever gastroenteritis in cats only. Feline distemper virus is also contagious and more common in kittens.

So, feline parvovirus can not cause parvo in dogs.

Parvo is an  contagious viral infection that can affect both dogs and cats but virus of of both the animals is different. Parvovirus of cats is called feline parvovirus or feline distemper and the condition is called Feline panleukopenia. This virus is different from canine parvovirus but both cause infections in same manner. So, if a cat is infected by feline parvovirus then it can not affect dogs and if a dog has canine parvovirus then it can not be transferred in cats.
