Caring for a Dog with Parvo?

My 7 month old puppy was diagnosed with parvo. The first 24 hours I gave her Pedialyte and chicken broth every hour on the hour. She does not have diarrhea and she is not vomiting. She was eating and drinking on her own the first night after a few hours of giving her Pedialyte. Now she has stopped eating again. And she hates the syringe. I am exhausted. After the first 24 hours how often should I feed her using the syringe? Still every hour or what is recommended?

Since she is not vomiting and doesn't have diarrhea, that is good. She needs to drink and be hydrated. Call the vet if you have concerns.

As long as the dog isn't vomiting this is a good sign. I'd try and see if she will drink a little water on her own. I know every hour on the hour is a lot of work. If you are really concerned there is another solution to this. You can try asking the vet to put an IV in and get some bags of liquid to feed her in the IV.


Normally, if the dog is really sick this is how they start the treatment. Otherwise, I'd try to get her to drink on her own. Other than these two solutions there isn't much else you can do at the moment.

I'm giving her baby food now... And she enjoying that a little... She is doing great... But I'm going to continue feeding every hour... Luckily my husband and I rotate in ships... He does the 3rd shift... And I do the morning shift into the evening... But she is getting more energy every day!!

My puppy just came down with parvo yesterday he was a playful puppy and then all of a sudden he was throwing up and I thought maybe it was the food we bought so I gave him water to flush it all out and the poor puppy became sicker, the next day I went to the vet and bought some meds and pedialyte. Ive been going in to the bathroom (where I keep him) to give him 12mL of pedialyte. He did have diarrhea and has been vomiting but not nearly as much as he was. Im scared Im going to lose him. Any helpful tips?
