Prognosis for a Puppy with the Parvo Virus

My puppy got sick for about 2 days. He wasn't drinking water and not eating at all. We took him to the vet clinic and he was injected with a vaccination, but when we arrived home he became worse and started vomiting. We then took him to the vet clinic again and he was diagnosed with parvo virus. It's been 4 days now he has been at the vet clinic receiving treatment. But he is not getting better at all. There seems to be no progress. Can you please tell me what are the chances of him surviving and how long may it take?

Parvo can last for a few weeks. If your puppy is drinking, that is key. I hope your dog pulls through. I am sure he is receiving the best of care at the vet.

The vet will normally put an IV in the dog to give him liquids. All you can basically do now is wait for the dog to respond to the treatment. This can take time. The vet knows what shots to give the dog an how to treat the dog. Sometime it can take up to 7 to 10 days to see improvement and other times it will take 3 to 4 days.
