Caring for a Puppy with Parvo

My 2 month old puppy started vomiting on March 21st. I took him to doctor. He gave oral medicine and on the 22nd he started eating and playing, but on the evening of the 22nd he started losing motion. On the 23rd, my vet started giving him IVs and antibiotics. He gave him an injection on the 21st as well. I think it was for vomiting. My puppy got the initial shot of parvo and deworming. So far we have not noticed blood in his stool or vomit. Today is the 7th day. I don't see a lot of improvement. There are no signs of eating or drinking, but he is walking and even trying to bite the vet when he inserts the needle in him. Currently he is throwing up white foam a couple of times. My question is could it be something else? When will my dog would start drinking or eating?

You should contact the vet. Recovery time varies from dog to dog, but not drinking and the white foam concern me.

It sounds like your puppy is getting better. A week sounds like a long time to be sick, but parvo is such a serious disease. In a dog that has had no shots it can drag on for a few weeks. It sounds like you were able to get proper Vet care for him and did all the right things. Good job.

You are doing a great job by having taken the pup to the vet. The main thing that can be done for your pup is to give fluids and possibly antibiotics. It is a virus but the antibiotics are for secondary infections. The main symptoms should only last for 8 to 10 days. The first four days are the toughest to get through and you will be able to tell if your dog is going to make it or not.


Make sure after the pup gets well that you clean everything or spray it with bleach, to prevent other pups from getting infected.

The supportive care you give your pup will be to give pedialyte and water in small amounts and to comfort and talk to the pup. He will be resting from weakness from fighting the virus.

Wishing for a quick recovery for your pup!
