Has anyone dealt with ParvoBusters? I have two puppies (6 months and 4 months) with Parvo. Tyson (6 months) has full blown Parvo and I have been keeping him alive with Gatorade, Pedialyte, and Pepto and an antibiotic shot the vet gave him.
Dodi, tested negative for Parvo today, but I am positive she will soon begin the symptoms. I took her to the vet and gave her fluids, antibiotic injection, and vomiting injection to be safe. I have started her on Pedialyte, Gatorade, and Pepto. But I am desperate and really want to try that stuff on Parvo Busters. Please give me any positive or negative feed back.

It would be too late now for your pups to get this but there is an antibiotic which works for my pups (I'm a breeder) called Tylosin Tartrate. Its actually for chicken coccidia but used in kennels and catteries for this. You can buy it from KVvet supply or Lambert Vet supply. It's aprox. $40 for the container. You use very little, 1/4 tsp for a 100 lb. animal twice daily so you can see you'd use a very scant amount for a small pup. It's safe and if you catch them early enough, it works.
Two of my baby girl Chihuahuas had parvo and I took them to the vet and he pretty much did the same thing urs did, except he said it would cost 1200. for him to treat each one of them. So my husband which is the family doctor and vet. so to speak used kids amoxicillian three times aday .5 for sm. dogs and when that ran out he used fish penn. and he mixed chicken broth with pedialyte and we used a syringe to feed them several times a day.
My vet had me call him four days later cuz he didn't think they would make it, he was surprised to find out that they did he told me that if they made it for four days then they should pull through. I hope this helps u, My baby girls looked and smelled like they were dying they couldn't eat or get up. But thanks to my husband and alot of prayers they recovered fully and that was four years ago. I wish you luck and God Bless. Paula from MO.
You might try this tea, my daughter and I have both used this tea for it. It is also good to remove worms. Good luck

Refrigerate tea recipe. Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe will be good for 3 days refrigerated. The tea is best if given warm. Run the syringe under warm tap water. One can also put the tea (recommended dose) in a small glass and place it in a larger bowl containing hot water and allow the tea to warm up. Do not microwave the tea.
Muttmom answering your request. Pull out all stops. Do whatever you can. Mainly keep dog hydrated. Colloidal silver that you bought, Do more often and double the amount.
