I am looking for a home treatment for parvo.

Please take your pet to the vet ASAP. Parvo is nothing to mess around with. Your pet could die without proper treatment. (09/11/2009)
I came upon this site when my dog contracted Parvo less than a week ago and was hopelessly trying anything to save him. I know taking them to the vet is number one, but when you don't have the money it is impossible to do. I noticed my dog was not well on 10/7/2009 and then we thought he was just not feeling good. Then we noticed the next day he was not eating or drinking any water or wanting to do anything. We figured that he was just under the weather and was just not that hungry, but on Friday he started throwing up and we knew he had parvo.
I have had other dogs that had it and we were scared that we were going to lose him also, but we went to a feed store to see what they could give us and they told us lots of vitamins and electrolytes which they sold to us and a syringe to give him the water with, every 2 hours.
I think we had caught it in time, but what I noticed was he was throwing the water right back up.
So I searched and came up on this site I saw all the postings with Pepto Bismol and Gatorade and decided to try it out. What we did was mix his electrolytes with the Gatorade and gave that to him every 2-4 hours even at night time we all took turns feeding him the water. We gave him the Pepto Bismol 1-2 times a day, but only half a syringe, it worked so good for him it is now 10/13/2009 and my dog is doing much better now. He is playing and eating, almost back to his normal self. I just want to say it worked for my dog it can work for yours. You just have to have faith and pray that they will get better by the way. My dog is an Akita male. (10/13/2009)
Not sure if any of you still need this help, but I need to share what I have discovered. Goat's milk! My puppy had began acting very sick so I took her to the vet. For $1,000 I could leave her in the hospital and she may have a 50% chance of survival, but if I took her home she would have a 25% chance. I didn't have that kind of money and I have her sister at home who I was afraid may come down with it too so that would have been another $1,000.
I called my uncle who has raised dogs for many years and he said to take her home and give her goat's milk. He actually met me at my house and helped me pour it down her because they won't eat or drink so you have to force it into them. That night while talking to my sister-in-law she told me the same thing. Her grandfather had used that remedy for years and they had never lost a dog to parvo. I started my puppy on goat's milk and rotated that with Pedialyte every two hours and saw a huge improvement within the first day and a half. Completely well within 4-5 days. This works and it's worth your trying it. You can purchase a can of goat's milk in your local grocery store. (03/23/2010)
