Parvo Survival Rate?

My 2 month old German Shepherd got parvo 3 days ago. The breeder didn't vaccinate him. The next morning, after he came to live with us, we brought him to get vaccinated. Two hours later he started vomiting. We supposed it was because of the vaccines. The next morning he had bloody diarrhea. We brought him to the vet and they gave him fluids, antibiotics, and some medicine called as polyglob. That treatment cost so much.


Every day we have to bring him to the vet to get him medicines and fluids. The vet said that he has a 50% chance of survival. I don't know if that is true or not. I wanted to ask you as well. He is moving more than before; maybe he is getting better.

This takes time, sometimes weeks. He is a puppy therefore will take more care and watched like a baby. Do everything your Vet said and watch him close. The process is slow to be 100%. Do not be discourage if it seems slow. Everyday that he is taking in liquids and getting a little active is great!

Parvo is very hard on a dog and it does take time for the dog to get better. In most cases the dog will show signs of improvement within the first 4 to 5 days of being treated by a vet. In a lot of cases the dog will be up and around and start eating again within 5 to 7 days but it can take up to 30 days before the dog is completely over Parvo. I know this because I had 2 dogs with Parvo and both cases were so different from each other. One of my dogs was much older when he got it and he jumped back a lot faster than the 4 month old puppy did. The puppy was very sick and had to stay at the vet for 10 days.


The first few days were very scary and the dog kept pooping blood. After the 6th day he showed great signs of improvement and finally started to eat again after the 8th day. The vet was able to release him back to me after 10 days and he was in good health but not as active as he was before. It took a few more days for him to be really active and about another 10 days for me to see he was back to his old self. The vet knows how to treat the dog it is just painful to see the dog do sick and worry about him. If the vet thought there was any danger to the dog he would keep the dog and not allow you to bring him home.
