Fighting Parvo...
 
Hi to everyone! I' m new to this forum and sadly the first thing that Iím writing about is my 11week old puppy fighting parvo. Itís his 6th day on IV and antibiotics. He started diarrhea Tuesday, vomited on Thursday on Saturday morning he had bloody diarrhea that stopped in the afternoon only to return today Monday. Our vet is really restrained only said that parvo is a serious disease and he canít give me any definite answers. I donít00 know what to do or think... I can only pray that he gets betterÖ Does anyone have a clue about what to expect from now on?

No real experience with Parvo myself, but use the search tool and search "Parvo" there are a lot of threads on here that talk about it and you may be able to get more insight. Sorry you're going through this.. prayers for you and your puppy.

Welcome!

I'm very sorry that you're writing about parvo today. It is not a pleasant topic. :(

I would be thinking positive at this point, if I were you, if he has held on for 6 days so far. How is he doing at the clinic, will they tell you? I would ask about his eating, vomiting, energy level and stools.

Good luck and good vibes for this guy. I've worked in kennels for years and I've seen parvo in probably hundreds of puppies. IME, there were very few casualties, but that will depend on their immune system, how early it's caught, the strain, your area, etc.

Thank you... He s not eating but his energy level is not that bad... He is my first dog so I really hope that we can get pass this...

Sometimes a blood or a plasma transfusion from a dog with antibodies can help fight the disease. Wishing you all the best.
