My 4 year old Dachshund is having some diarrhea and seems to be refusing his hard dog food. He is still eating just not as much. He almost died as a puppy with parvo. I guess he is a carrier.
What are the chances of a reoccurence of the parvo? He was treated with a booster after a year old, but nothing since. Do I need to be concerned or wait and see how long he has the diarrhea?
These are questions best brought to your veterinarian. However, just diarrhea with no vomiting is usually NOT a sign of parvo. I wouldn't push food. He knows how is stomach feels. I'd at least call the vet in the morning and get professional advice. I've never heard of a dog being a carrier of parvo. To the best of my knowledge they either have it or they don't.
Please go to your Vet!
I would definitely call the vet. You don't want your dog to become dehydrated. I wonder if he has an infected tooth, since he is refusing hard food? An infection like that can effect the whole system and needs to be taken care of.
Parvo? Enema with colloidal silver (Health food store) one half hour later, another enema with colloidal silver. Kills germs where they are, they cannot multiply. Dog is renewed and gets strength in a short while.
