Using Ampitrexyl to Treat a Dog with Parvo

I do not have the money to go to a vet, but is there a way I can give my dog Ampitrexyl for the parvo infection? That is the best I can do. Please I love my dog dearly he is my baby boy. Will it help him?

As you already know this is a very serious illness and giving advice on something like this is difficult.
ThriftyFun gets a lot of questions on this subject so I would suggest you read what others have tried and make your own decision.

My 7 month old has been suffering for about 5 days..I have been forcing collide silver down his throat with a turkey baster.. I mixed with this some children Panadol and antibiotics 2 times a day. Plus I added electrolytes some black strap molasses and bi carb soda.. I mixed up what I gave him at the 5 or 6 times I feed him. But all were with the collide silver base.. I thought I had lost him on day 3 ...


but persisted.. he now has a little more energy. Looks much better and has even drank some water on his own. I am still giving him the different mixtures plus a bit of chicken stock. I am confident that he will make it.. the next challenge is getting him to eat on his own.. but I am sure he will soon. So don't give up..persist ...even when you think it is no use and maybe even cruel to keep forcing fluid down there throat.. good luck

I am not certain that my 9 week old Pitt had or have parvo-she had the first 2 rounds of her puppy boosters,then fell sick I started pumping Pedialyte in her and she perked up and played and ate a little the next day.then a couple hours later we were back to being sick we took her to the vet paid 200 for meds but we were strapped for cash so I took her home and started the meds and looking for alternative treatments.I found activated charcoal-it helped a little-then I heard about sovereign silver.after 4 doses she was wagging her tail nd drinking on her own,not long after that maybe an hour she began eating then playing...still has dyareia but not throwing up this is day 5 ..I'm not sure if this is over or just a reprieve I'm still giving Pedialyte and sovereign silver.

What is sovereign? Also here is a list of meds you need for parvo that many professional breeders and rescues have used successfully for years.


1. Tami Flu. It kills the parvo virus in dogs. Its a human med that is prescribed. So you have to ask your doc or a vet for the script.

2. Cerenia, Zofran, or another anti nausea medicine to help them stop throwing up

3. Imodium AD given for diarrhea.

4. Fluids. Its best to do sub q fluids for the first couple days because most of the time any thing they ingest will cause vomiting or diarrhea. So in rescue we usually withold any food or fluids given orally except for meds to reduce possible vomiting.

Next two items are just recommended for their immune systems. I give it everyday.

5. Tomlyn High Calorie Puppy Gel
Works better then Karo syrup. The link is posted here.

6. Dyne. Dyne is a thick, sticky and sweet nutritional supplement that every puppy who is growing and doesnt have all their vaccines should have. I give my puppies this once s day everyday. It does wonders for their immune system


Plus if you mix dyne and di-methox it makes generic albon which is used to treat coccidia. A nasty parasite that causes smelly diarrhea, lack of appetite and in bad bad cases in small puppies sometimes death. Link listed below.

Hope all this helps.

I had a puppy with parvo. You can give 1 to 2 tablespoons of water (little bits at a time) into the rectum every hour they can absorb fluids that way. Just water or pedialyte.

This is for all who can't afford a vet when your dog has parvo. Go to a feed store!!


You can buy the shots & give them yourself!!! Not sure what the cost us now but several yrs ago it was only about $8.00 a shot.

Yes u are right it's a 9 in 1 shot . But the only thing u have to be careful of is the end up getting diluted . They ship it not refrigerated then they refrigerate it when they arrive at the feed store. If ur going to use it from there I suggest u give puppy the entire shot . Then repeat 2-4 weeks later to ensure ur puppy is safe. Another idea for cheaper shots is a lot of shelters administer vaccines a lot cheaper than the vet. They are done correctly with the correct shipping of product. The plus to this is ur also helping ur shelter in ur area provide food etc by paying them to give vaccines . So it's a two for one. Even if u notice signs of parvo give them the shot anyways it helps with curing ur dog. If u catch it quick enough u sometimes don't even have to administer other home remides it snaps them right out of it.


I used Gatorade , pedalialyte, children's tylenol, zofran , antibiotics , oatmeal and kyro syrup. Meds every 4hrs and fluid every 2hrs . Plus I administerd the 9.00 shot from feed store the entire dose and lots of mommy love . He's a strong willed 8 week old Pitbull. I also suggest when getting a puppy u get it at 5weeks. Parvo doesn't occur until 7 weeks- 6mos. That way u are sure ur dog is vaccinated properly . Also ask if the mother dog was vaccinated for parvo . There immune system to parvo will be greater if she has had one. Just to be on the safe side I usually get pups at 5weeks they are already fully winged. U ensure ur dogs health .

YOU DO NOT WANT TO GIVE PARVO SHOT TO A PARVO INFECTED PUPPY! Wait till they recover about a month after to give them their shot!

Did you give 500 mg amoxicillin 3 x a day, in total 1500 mg or that 500 was split into those 3 doses?

There is an article about an alternative treatment at home:
http://csu-cvmb  ew-protocal.aspx

The two drugs are Maropitant, an anti-nausea drug, and Convenia, an antibiotic. Both are given under the skin. The Maropitant must be given several times daily. This is intensive treatment, but at $300, is much cheaper than the $1500-$3000 for hospitalization.

A dog can die within 48 hours of catching parvo. If I were you, I'd ask the vet about this treatment, or work out some payment plan.
