Feeding A Dog With Parvo?My dog is on his fourth day of parvo. He's been drinking water on his own, but hasn't been eating. I'm giving him penicillin, pedialyte and chicken broth, but he still gets happy to see people, like he's being so strong for us.

If he doesn't want to eat, what can I do to replace the meal?
