Surviving Parvovirus

Sick yellow lab isolated on whiteEditor's Note: All medical advice on ThriftyFun should be vetted by a medical professional prior to use. Dosages for animals needs to be determined by weight and human medications may not be safe for your pets. Tylenol can cause liver damage in cases of overdose.

My girl Pit Bull has parvovirus and she's on day two. We're fighting this disease together because it's not only affecting our dogs, but us as well. They are our best friends! My dog is 15 months of age. It is harder for older dogs! I started my own campaign. We are survivors of parvo!

I am a CNA. In taking my past dogs to animal clinics, I realize that they're more out for your money than anything! You can use children's amoxicillin, Gatorade or Pedialyte, and, last but not least, Zofran or nausea meds that you've been prescribed by your doctor. I break the nausea meds in half.

The first step is to break the antibiotic down into powder form and mix with Pedialyte. Then insert it towards the back of the throats while following another behind it. One more thing is you need a syringe. That's what you use to keep your dog hydrated as well as giving the medicine. Then you take your half of your Zofran and repeat it by crushing it and mixed with fluids. Suck it up with your syringe and squirt it into their mouth. You do this at least 4 times a day, for 7 days straight! You will see your dog getting better by the 4th to 5th day, guaranteed. Then you will be able to say "My dog is a survivor of Parvo!"

This also helps cats.

Not all human medications are safe for dogs. Tylenol is one that is not often recommended and can cause kidney damage if not properly dosed. Tylenol should never be giving to a cat.

We lost our pit about 2 months ago to parvo..we took her to vet but it didnt help.she passed..we then got another pit she was 4 months and up to date on all vaccines. Well she got it..i fought hard and so did she and we survived parvo this is how..Pedialyte every 30 min, peptobismal every 2 to 3 hours as needed, chamomile tea 3 to 4 hours a day, and tamiflu.

Mind you i had to stay home from work 2 days and stayed up with her all night for 3 nights giving her Pedialyte and pepto..its not easy but i promise it worked for me. Good luck if you are researching because you and your best friend are going through this terrible virus..it can be beat though dnt forget that.

I am so sorry you have had to deal with this awful virus twice. You didn't say how long it was between dogs, but the virus is still active for about 6 months without a host. So it's in your house, lawn, bedding, etc. and can infect any new dogs brought into the household. Best advice is to completely remove and/or destroy any bedding, towels, etc. that your dogs came in contact with. This includes any clothing you were wearing when caring for them. Then totally disinfect EVERYTHING.

I mean EVERYTHING. This means any surface you or anyone in your house may have touched while caring for the dog, which is likely going to be 100% of the surfaces unless you dressed in a hazmat suit every time to went near him/her. The best mix to combat parvo is 30 parts water to 1 part household bleach. Even having done all of this, it's probably still safest to wait more than 6 months before bringing another dog into the house.

Hi,
I'm sorry your baby is sick and hope for a quick recovery. Did you mean to say baby aspirin instead of Tylenol? I read that Tylenol will kill dogs and cats.

We tried this and it didn't work. Our puppy died. Our other puppy started showing signs so my wife took her to the clinic. They gave us a prescription for amoxicillin and a anti diarrhea medicine. They also sent us home with an I.V.

setup and a bag of fluid and told us to give her 2ml every twelve hours which was two days worth. It is day four and she is drinking water and starting to eat. I think she is going to make it.

My ShihTzu is 7 months. She is in a pet hospital since this past Sunday. Today makes 3 days. My concern is her and I being separated . The vet says she is very depressed. I am also. Do you think it wise I get her home to her familiar cozy loving surroundings

Thank you for the information my puppy is on day 6 with parvo. With live, care and attention we may be able to get thru this. My puppy is fighting this parvo. I pray he survives. I cannot afford vet vista 1500.00.

I recently had an encounter with my two puppies having parvo .I lost my dear one on the 3 rd day ,few days back .I learned a few from my second pup .So here are a few things I found out to save them and to fight this monster.
1.Take the pet to the vet and get weekly checkup of antigen kit (parvo)until you give the vaccination,so we can catch them at the earliest,before manifesting the bloody stools.Once they are seen it is difficult to fight it .
2.Parvo cure is the immunoglobin tablet which we should make sure the pup doesn't vomit and it stays in him / her.If it is vomitted DNT ignore , they harm is immediate .It is the immunoglobin that helps the pup to fight .
3.Change the place ,where the pup was previously lieing ,change them and keep thwm away from the affected area off to a safe well lit sunny place ,since it's during the raining season the parvo outbursts happen you don't have to worry bou your puppy going to have a heatstroke or anything .Sun's heat is a disinfected itself .So maximum lit room .
4.Most important of all, as a doctor not a veteran and I grew two puppies up .Always get a puppy who is more than 45 days old ,chubby and healthy one .Mother's breast milk is the source of immunity .So Neva get a puppy less than a 30 day old . Mother's milk gives the immunity it needs . Regular check up ,your puppy will grow up to be healthy and loving and lively .

Pups should not be separated from their moms until 6 wks old.

Tylenol is toxic to animals, even children's Tylenol can harm them. That's the first problem. Many antibiotics used by humans are not safe for animals. Why you would suggest that is beyond me.

There is a medication called Parvaid I believe that's how it was spelled. Anyway I got it at a pet store it was kind of hard to find, but it is a miracle medication you can see a difference in 24 hours. If I ever have another pet with Parvo I will go get it immediately.

I have beat patio and it has also beaten me. What I can add to what was recommended is Imodium. I used only proto bishop and beat it once but I also lost once. I have beat it 3 times giving Imodium in the morning and evening only one pill at a time, and using proto bismol every time before I hydrated, medicated, or fed baby food. You have got to feed chicken or turkey and you have to get them to keep some down.

My dog bubba survived and now I'm nursing a 8 week old Chihuahua pup. With bubba I gave him 4 cc of Pepto bismol that coats the stomach then I took a Klonopin break in 4 gave him a quarter piece that keeps them calm and the intestines from spasming then hydrate with a med. Seringe Pedialyte 6 cc every 15 minutes repeat the Pepto and Klonopin every 6-8 hrs. He's a survivor hope it works with this little guy we call possium

I read alot of this site some things I have tried will keep trying but I have kept my 2 pups 3 mths eho did have their first sgots alive so far for 8 days only because I lost their brother in 48 hrs. At this point I really feel like I am torturing them. Yes I have kept them breathing but how long can they last they cant hold anything down so scratch most of that advice although I try with the pedilaite wtc but even giving them subcutaneous shots of fluids every hr 3ml. Makes them vomit or dry heave and the bloody diarhea. I wanted to stop but my 18 yr old son accused me of giving up so fay 9. I have tried everything and i havent slept in days. I mop and do horrible laundry I have other dogs I am afraid will get infected and I pray. Yes there were positive stories on here but I am afraid it is because people who tortured these dying animals dont post, parvo kills fast. Dragging it out for 2 wks doesnt feel like a success story. still trying, still hoping. Wis

This course of treatment is likely to directly contribute to a dog dying. In addition it is likely that this would encourage owners to keep a virus shedding dog at home, heightening the risk to any non vaccinated dogs at home.

Our dog spyke is also a " Parvovirus survivor "...we consulted a Vet but the doctor recommend us to have a home treatment maybe because of no 1 reason; you should have a budget for them to treat in a vet clinic & etc.. ( herbal medicine ) we treat him a boiled mangoestin leaves suck in a syringe and put into his mouth and followed by antibiotic capsule mixed with water about 1ml. twice a day until the dogs recover to its normal. the good news is after a week our dog miraculously got his strength. thanks to our vet and prayer for healing.
