Caring For A Dog With Parvo?

My 8 week old French Bulldog was recently diagnosed with parvo. She received her first immunization on week 7. She has had semi loose stool not full blown diarrhea and she has only vomited twice so far. I have seen a few drops of blood in her poop.

My question is after she received her medicine from the vet and I have started giving her baby food with baby rice and pedialyte while also continuing her antibiotics, she has stopped pooping. It's been a whole day with no poop. Is this normal? Also no throw up. She is peeing though.

This is probably one of the most crucial time periods of the Parvo virus so be very sure you discuss all changes with the vet as sometimes the vet decides they should see them again to check everything and maybe prescribe more/different medications.

Make the calls even if you think the assistants are annoyed with you calling but make sure they record everything you tell them so when the vet looks at your pup's chart all of the info will be there.

Your pup not going to the bathroom for one day may be okay because you say her stools were loose which may have cleaned out her colon more than usual; also, you have completely changed her diet and that will also have some effect on her going to the bathroom.

It is really important that she get plenty of liquids and lots of peaceful rest. Sometimes it is difficult to let them rest because you cannot help but be concerned but if she is acting okay, drinking liquids, eating a little, let her rest undisturbed for as long as possible.
Be sure to give her liquids during the night also as her medications will sometimes make her thirsty and she needs those liquids.
It really sounds like you were very lucky and caught this virus early enough that your baby may escape the worst part.

Keep calling the vet when anything changes as they are very familiar with what is wrong when habits of your pup change.

I was an overnight shock trauma vet tech and I have cared for many serious cases of parvo.The first thing that comes to mind is the smell of the diarrhea because I of the blood that comes with it. Although your dogs case doesnt sound as serious as I have seen it doesnt mean you are out of the woods. Also remember parvo is extremely contagious so dont leave your dogs waste where other dogs go. And before your dog has completed the suggested regimen of vaccines dont take them to public areas or dog parks. If you are not sure of what vaccines your dog has received your vet can do a titter to test the levels in their system.

Most of all just because parvo no longer automatically means your dog will die, it should always be taken seriously and vet treated.

Since you have the dog under treatment already, PLEASE get the vet to give the OK for a treatment (if any is needed) They may also tell you that it is FINE for !! It is OK for the pup not not poop after being so sick for X number of days and after X number of days, do Y, which may be as simple as adding a teaspoon of pumpkin puree to his food.

Prayers for healing!! Post back with an update!

Your dog is getting better. She is not vomiting. She is also drinking. Keep in contact work your vet.
