I am so sorry your dog got parvo. My father has lost a dog (2 yr old rottie) to parvo, and then his Giant Schnauzer puppy got it, but lived. They got it mainly because my father is a old school country guy and doesnt vaccinate his dogs.

good luck with your dog, and I will keep you in my thoughts
if you have any questions please call your vet.

I agree, you need to call your vet. It is very possible the puppy requires hospitalization with IV fluids/antibiotics at this point.

I don't have any advice, but I wanted to say I'm sorry about your pup. Hope he pulls out of this.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees with parvovirus. When I worked as a vet tech, I saw puppies who looked great die the next day and ones who looked like they wouldn't make it through the night look like brand new dogs the next day. I wish you luck, but there's really not much else you can do aside from praying/crossing your fingers/whatever you feel comfortable with doing.

I'm not familiar with the product, but personally I'd feel better using traditional veterinary medicine in this case. But that's just me ... the decision would be yours. They state they have case studies showing its effectiveness.

I would say bring your dog back to the vet again for evaluation.

If you can survive the virus lifespan ( it is a matter of days) they can bounce back so fast. Keeping them hydrated is key. IT has been awhile since i have helped a dog through this so maybe treatments have changed. I am sorry for your dog, i can't think of a more miserable way to be.
