Should Dogs Get Parvo Shots After Having Parvo?

October 26, 2016

Should you give your puppy a parvo shot after surviving parvo?

There is no point in it. The dog has produced the necessary antibodies needed to combat the disease and has survived.

Your dog is already immune to parvo because he had the virus. Save your money.

Listen up folks.
I had 4 terriers get parvo, I was broke. But to my amazement I found something you can buy at any store to treat them.
So you know I had the first one tested and bam, parvo!


Buy activated charcoal, you can find it in many forms. But works best is pharmaceutical grade. It's just on your local pharmacy shelve, over the counter. Usually sold as a dietary supplement or anti gas pill.

Get home, open 3 capsules and use with only water as any other liquid will have artificial colors, acids, etc and the charcoal will activate with and not work as well with parvo virus in your dog.

Mix thoroughly and use a cold syrup syringe or a straw like I did to give about 3 quarter straws, every 30 minutes. For 5 hours, then same dosage every hour after.

My puppy was wagging his tail and lifting his head again within a couple days, then up and drinking water.
My older doggies were up and about a day earlier.
I thank God for finding this charcoal that he has created.

Vets will never tell you this. And here is best part. When they survive, they will have strong natural immunity.

I've had a few pups contract parvo, but luckily my old papa taught me that as soon as you seen the first sign, (diarrhea, with gagging, vomiting) get a cold syrup syringe and give them 2, 5ml squirts of gatorade down their throat every 2 and a half hours. Along with half a ml of raw egg between. Give the pup a quarter of a women's daily vitamin once a day also. The vomiting will stop almost immediately, and within 24-36 hours they will want to lap up the gatorade on their own. Within 48-60 hours their appetite will be back.



As for the vaccine, although they will be immune to the virus I recommend, still giving the spectra 9 or 5 depending on age the age of the puppy. You can get the 5 for around 8 dollars, and the 9 for 11 at any feed or tractor supply store.

I did this too! I stayed up for over a week woth my pup doing this every 2 hours. Plus i injected her with the iv fluids and gave her this garlic herb mix i found online.


Vet told me my dog was going to die and that these methods were useless... my puppy is now almost 2. My pup was not going to die on me...

I just pulled my puppy out of parvo using Pepto bismo peanut butter and Pedialyte I I put a small amount of peanut butter on the roof of her mouth forcing her to swallow then she was willing to swallow more Pedialyte I gave in a syringe did that every hour for 3 days even after the vet said she wouldn't survive. She is back to normal eating like a pig.

I had my puppy get her 1st shots and she got parvo days after. She made it through it, do I need to get her the remaining parvo shots? Can she get it twice?

My young dog got parvo and thankfully survived. I will not use the vaccine ever since the dog has immunity to the disease. We are vaccinating ourselves, children and animals into mental problems, sickness, cancers, and who knows what else.


All for the sake of the all mighty dollar. Yea I know ask your vet.......ask the doctor.....

Hi Andrea I understand where your coming from about the mighty dollar. I feel same way do some research on over vaccinating you will be surpriused. I raise pit bulls for many years. My dogs get 1st shots.... and that's it! I have yet to have a dog get parvo ever! Maybe I'm just lucky.

I have a Reindeer Chihuahua. A week after we got her she came down with parvo. I could not stand by and do nothing, so I took her to the vet. He gave me 3 choices. First, leave her in their hospital for 1300.00 and she will have a 90% chance to live. Secondly, come back every day for a shot in her neck, to keep her hydrated, at a cost of 100.00 per day and give her liquids every hour for those 7 days (which meant not going to work), or lastly, put her down. We chose number 2. The dog lived and is very healthy.

Now a year and a half later the vet has sent me a letter saying its time to bring her in for another parvo shot. Is this true? By the way, the first time I was there he told me that the shot would not really help save the dog and that it was really up to her. Do I need to get her another shot? Thanks for your help.

Change your Veterinarian the only correct statement is YES your Dog has to have a yearly C5 vaccination that includes Canine Parvoviris, Distemper, Kennel Cough and Heartworm Injections. Depending on the area you live anything else your vet feels is necessary. Depending on age this should have been done when you first owned the dog. I really am sorry for you. Please keep us all posted.

If you have a dog with parvo do you administer a vaccination? She is 1yr old and has had her puppy shots.

I just bought a one year old dog and she came down with Parvo the day after she came home. She just recently got the all clear from the vet. Our vet told us to come back when she is one hundred percent better to get her vaccinated. Should I go ahead and vaccinate her?

My 6 mo. old Border Collie / Bull Terrier came down with Parvo. She was hospitalized immediately, and is now back to herself. I'm still giving her the remaining antibiotics. She is due for her first Parvo shot tomorrow. Will this vaccine cause the virus to flare up again?
