Prognosis for a Dog with Parvo

My dog Miley has caught parvo. She only had her first set of shots. She will make 2 in December. The vet said we caught it early and she's at the vet being treated. She hasn't vomited or had bloody stool since yesterday at 3pm. Today they said she's stable, but she still hasn't used the bathroom. But her color on her gums is pink. She's not eating or drinking on her own yet, but this is only her second night there. Any advice or hope for this one. I'm heart broken.

Having a sick pet can be very stressful especially because we feel so helpless. I hope your Miley is well on the road to recovery; as rule of thumb, dogs that get past the three to four days marker with intensive veterinary care, are likely to pull through.

  • There will be very important instructions for taking care of her once she is well enough to be taken home so be sure to get some written instructions.
  • Prepare some questions to ask before leaving the vet and make sure you have a number to call if you have questions in the future.
  • You can read about after care but it is best if you know you can ask questions and get immediate answers.

The vets will do the best they can. Parvo takes a few weeks to recover from Good luck.

Keep your vet in the loop or if you think something changed, go to an emergency vet ASAP. Many of the emergency vets work with you on cost if that is an issue...everything from sliding scale to free care funds. Parvo is scary, but my friend's dog recovered from it fully so just follow the vet instructions to the letter and watch the pup carefully. I will send up a lot of healing prayers for you all!!

My dog had parvo when he was a puppy. He's seven years old now. I adopted him from a shelter in Arkansas. He was severely sick with the parvo virus. the shelter treated him and I adopted him. He came up to Massachusetts on a large air conditioned van.

I love him and I'm so grateful that the shelter treated him. He has never had a health problem since. he had not had any of the shots for parvo and still survived, so I think you puppy has an even better chance of getting well. Good luck.

Your dog has a very good chance of surviving because you did things right for her. Getting Vet treatment right away is critical. Even if you have to do your own nursing at home with a plan from your Vet, that makes the biggest difference.

This, having had one vaccination, and having stabilized makes me think your girl will make it.
