Caring for Puppy With Possible Parvo

I found two Boxer mix puppies a few weeks ago on the side of the road. They are brothers and were very skinny, so I don't think they've had their shots. Before I could take them to get them, one of the boys vomited twice last night and had runny stool. I took both of them to the doc and they said it's possibly parvo. So I cooked chicken and rice, he kept it down and is drinking water like usual and is playing around.


His stool is green and semi solid now, but no blood. I plan to do the bleach cleaning tonight. Is there any other advice I can get to keep my two pups healthy? The vet said not to separate the boys because they've already been exposed. I just feel so bad. I want to do all I can to prevent the other one from getting it and loosing my other pup.

I found this on

08/12/2010: Virginia from Hamilton, Ontario : "My Remedy was MMS for Parvo in dogs. Yesterday, my 7wk female pup, suddenly came down with symptoms of Parvo, loss of appetite, refusing even water, for an entire day, and then morning diarehha, was slimmy and bloody, pressure forcing out, litterly pushing pup's back end off the ground. Then vomiting frothy slime that appeared clear. Then extreme listlessness, tired, sleeping more than usual and deep sleep, weakness increased, by late afternoon, could not balance, and diarehha became more bloody and dark pudding like, very slimy near end finish. Followed by high fever. Dehydration set in, skin non elastic, drastic weight loss.


Could not afford Vet bill, and as Parvo has 90 ath rate as incurable. But intended to get pup vaccinated as appt is in 1 wk. Been taking MMS myself for over a year, with good results. Immediately, started pup on only MMS 1/4 drop ratio, i.e., 1 quarter of 1 drop ratio. The ratio is 3 drops per 25 pounds. This pup was under 5 pounds, therefore I used a quarter of a drop ratio with 4 oz. of water, and alternating with Electrolytes, and then boiled concentrated Barley water.

Fed alternating MMS low doses with small bent dropper and Electrolytes first, at side of mouth for pup to lick and swallow, every 10, 15minutes. Then cooled concentrated barley water(boiled down to thick consistency)alternating also with dropper. Saw immediate change within an hr. Dog was playful, after barley water dog wanted actually to eat its kibble. Next day diarrhea not as liquid, no blood, and dog is drinking and eating on own, playful, actually wanted to run. Fever gone and nose feels cool and wet, gums are good pink return when pressed. I will still watch symptoms with caution and change to bland diet for next 2 weeks till healed, as there may be damage in the intestinal lining due to blood. I will also continue MMS low dosage in daily drinking water. Will update new data. Thks, Virginia"


[yea] 09/11/2010: Virginia from Hamilton, Ontario replies: "Update for Pup with Parvo Symptoms: Pup continued to get good results after using MMS for Parvo symptoms. Gaining weight, very active, and no signs or side effects from Parvo. Will continue periodic MMS treatments according to ratio of weight gain. Pup saw Vet, had check up and first booster needle, vet says appears very healthy and no concerns."

Hope this helps, I couldn't find the drops myself, so I will look around for them and send a link.

Be very careful about over the counter cures for parvo. Because it is such a devastating disease the quacksters take advantage of peoples desperation.


I have never seen an over the counter cure for parvo that worked (other than make some quack rich). Take you Vets advice on this one and good luck to you and your two boys.

Take the pups to another vet. The fact that the vet in a sense turned you away, without doing anything for the pups says something. If it is parvo they need iv's and constant care. The food is not going to help as parvo strips the lining of the intestine and makes it so that no nutrients can get into the blood stream. Parvo can be survived but it is iffy, and needs professional help.
