Caring for a Puppy with Parvo

My puppy has parvo. We went to the vet and got the IV and the antibiotics. My question is what process will I be going through with her? Will she be throwing up often? What can I do to help her though this? Today is the 3rd day of her sickness. I gave her the nausea medicine this morning, but she's throwing up close to every hour now. Also she has only gone number 2 once today and it was a bit runny. Should I be worried that she is not going? She has also gone pee once too.

The first 72 to 96 hours are the worst for the dog. Basically, all you can do is keep her on the IV, make sure she has fluids, give her the medication and make her comfortable. You should start to see a change in your dog around the 4th day.

Until the dog has stopped vomiting and having running stools it is best to keep them on liquids only. After you see the dog has stopped vomiting you can start her on 1 to 2 tablespoons of a bland diet. This is cooked white rice or even some cook pasta. Keep giving her plenty of fluids and make sure she is drinking some water. If you don't see a change by the 4th day, I'd call the vet and see if you need to take her back in for another shot. Just keep a close eye on her and monitor how often she is drinking.
