I nursed a Cairn Terrier puppy through this years ago, she survived and went on to live to be 14 so it can be done.

However the best way to avoid it is to be really strict about not taking your puppy out, especially not anywhere that other dogs go, and keep them off sidewalks etc until they have had their shots. The virus can only get into your home if it is brought there by other dogs or possibly on outdoor shoes so be careful about this as well.

Good luck with a new puppy.

Parvo vaccine often gives parvo. Your puppies have already been exposed. Extreme hazard. Never had to try but friends swear when a pup is showing sign an enema with colloidal silver water (at least 10 ppm) (available at health food store) will carry germs away from where they are concentrated. Another enema half hour later. Orally, often. Dropper of colloidal silver Hydrate by mouth whatever you can. Chicken broth, water, whatever but as much liquids as possible. Most die from dehydration along with the disease. This means all-nighters and lots of dedication if they are to pull through. Good luck. This is a hard one.
