Puppy Recovering from Parvo Won't Eat?

My puppy Benson has parvo. We took him to the vet who gave us IV bags and the shots for a 3 day period. So far he has had all 6 shots, he doesn't like us using the IV bag on him anymore. He is active again, drinks water, and wags his tail and licks us again, but for some reason I can't get him interested in food. It's been awhile since he's eaten, 3 days to be exact and it's worrying me. I've tried rice, baby food, and just creamy stuff so it's easy to go down. Anyone know anything that he might be interested in or a trick to ease him into eating again?

Since the puppy is up an active here is some foods you can try.

  1. It is recommended to give ice chips to the dog if he is still vomiting.
  2. Otherwise, start the dog on a bland diet. You can make this yourself at home. You will need 1 1/2 cups of creamed cottage cheese, 1 large hard boil egg, chopped, and 2 cups of cooked cream of wheet or rice. You can also use 2 cups of cooked white rice. Not instant rice.
  3. Now you will feed the dog 4 times a day with this bland diet. You will only give him 1 to 2 tablesppons of the bland diet at a time.
  4. If the dog starts to vomit again, you will stop feeding him the bland diet and go back to only feeding him ice cup chips.

  6. After each feeding make sure he drink or you give him 1/4 cup of water.
  7. Continue this for 2 to 3 days.
  8. If the dog is doing good then you can start to mix a small amount of his dog food with the bland food.
  9. He should start eating again after 6 to 8 days.

He is doing well. It can take a few weeks to completely recover.

Give him some more time he will eventually start eating again.The main thing is he is drinking water and starting to come around.

As long as he's hydrated and okay to drink, he's on the right track. It can take a while before they have an appetite again.

Puppy recovering from parvo.

  • I hope your pup has regained all of his strength and is eating and drinking lots of water.
  • Cleaning your house after a bout with Parvo can be a real job but it really is necessary as the germs can live for a long time in the house and outside.

  • Your puppy may be safe from the virus now but any other unvaccinated puppy would not be safe.
  • Here is a link to some examples of how to be sure you have gotten rid of the germs.
