JAX I am so glad to hear Buddy is doing so much better. Yeah I would say slow and steady on the food so his stomach isn't bombarded. Kodi had the first shot also but I think the breeder gave it to cover her rear because it was given a couple of days before we picked her up and she would already have been infected with it. Just a word of caution, my vet said they can be contagious for up to a month to other dogs and the virus itself can live a very long time. My vet had never heard of parvaid either. Like I said I am so happy to hear he is better; please keep a close eye on him and notify your vet at any sign of distress or if he starts being listless or not wanting to eat/drink again. They can have a relapse; but it sounds like he is on his way to being a normal puppy. It will be a long time before I feel safe in getting another puppy just in case we brought any germs into the carpet from the breeder so I am here to help others fight for their little ones since my own didn't make it. Congratulations once again :)
My pup Max(labrador) was tested positive for parvo today.He has been vomiting depressed and had bloody diarhoeaa We took him in on Tuesday Night at midnight as he had been getting worse and worse since last seeing the verts earlier in the day. Todays thursday we got the pup last thursday (aint even had it a week hardly!) it has obviously caught the virus from the breeder's home where we bought it from. It's 9 weeks old. We phoned the breeder he seemed suprised more than anything as he has sold the rest of the pups in Max's litter and not one of the owners has phoned back with a problem. Max costed £350 and we now have to pay £800 in vets fees and stuff. Is this an american website if so that would probably cost $2100 in total.(we got no insurance yet)*gulp* well i guess it's only money *gulp* hopefully with the vets help he will fully recover. *fingers crossed* Oh yeah and also when and if the dog does survive and he comes back home should we get rid of his toys bowls etc and what should need cleaning?????????????????????????????????????????
You have to clean everything that is possible with bleach ..get rid of toys doggy bed he was in etc ...My Cassa died from parvo after being on IV for 5 days took her home she fought hard for a month after but died in her sleep ..Im glad I dont have to pay your vet rates ...total for 5 days at the vets all the care IV etc was 235.00 canadian ...thats like 180 american ...I have done a bit of research on this disease ...You need to know even though your dog gets through this they may never be the same dog as they were before they got ill and might have other probs later on as well ...this is just some info I have read up on it ....

i really need some advice if anyone can help! My 10 week old chocolate lab is in the proccess of being treated for parvo. I am confident that he will make a successful recovery (thanks to all the positive testimonies on this page..especially yours Scott1) but i need to know how to get the parvo out of my home. Bailey has been all over my carpet and had even thrown up and had diahrea on my carpet. Does anyone know the most effective way to get the virus out??? I dont want my puppy to get it again if he survives. The weird thing is is that he never had blood in his stool, he didn't have a fever and he wasnt that dehydrated when we took him to the vet. The vet just said he was going to treat him as if he had parvo. He was only slightly lethargic (he still wanted to play every once and a while), and he wouldn't eat but he would drink water(although he threw it back up) could this mean we caught it really early or could it possibly be something else??? if anyone has any advise for me i would greatly appreciate it!!!!
it sounds like you caught it really early which is a good thing. once they get to the stage where there is blood in the stools the survival rate is greatly decreased. for some unknown reason labs and rotties have a higher incidence of getting parvo then any other breed. i wish the best for your pup. keep us posted.
I need alot of advice right now. I need help on pulling my baby through Parvo. I have no money to bring him to the vet and the vet will not look at him without money. Right now I am in day 2 and so far so good. I am giving him pedialite and baby's gravol. He is drinking alittle water now and then but his bowel movements are like water. I also came home to Scooby tonight and while he was out 5 hours ago he decided he was not in enough medical stress but he has gotten bitten by a bug or a insect. His face is swollen and he has the hives. I have applied ice on the infected area and put polysporn on the area that is swollen the worst. I need advice from anyone who can pull my baby through this and my three boys will be grateful as well. If you have any advice PLEASE PLEASE email me at MICHELLEB@IBECAME.COM Thank u for reading this and hopefully someone will be able to help.

just a little update on my puppy Bailey. We went to the vet today and she told us he was supposed to come home this morning with meds (after being in there for 2 days) but this morning he had blood in his stool so therie going to keep him there longer. the good news is she said he is a happy puppy, he wags his tail, and get excited when people come near him. does this sound like he should make a full recovery?
Hello, My fiance's teenage son found a really cute mixed breed stray puppy and fell in love. Of course dad agreed to allowing the son to keep the puppy and for two weeks the puppy has been traveling between two homes (the son lives with his mother, but spends time at his dad's home). We babysat the puppy last night and I could tell as soon as I saw it (I have not seen it in about 5 days) the puppy was sick. The son said the puppy has had diarrhea and vomitting for a couple days, but blamed it on overfeeding (the puppy was too thin to be suffering from overfeeding). This morning the puppy was lethargic and wouldn't eat. I have seen one puppy die of parvo and I had a feeling that was the problem, so we took the puppy to an emergency vet (it's Sunday). Sure enough, the puppy has parvo and is very sick. We left the puppy at the hospital to receive treatment. I currently own two dogs - a 4 year old mixed terrier/miniature pinscher. My other dog is a 16 year old old mixed corgi/papillion and is battling cancer. I love my current dogs very much and worry about their safety. They both are current on their shots. Any advice? What are the chances my future stepson's dog will live? He is very attached to the puppy, he takes the puppy everywhere. I am really worried.
if your stepsons puppy is as bad as you have described i am not sure what his chances are. the best chance for survival is if it is treated as soon as the first signs appear. i would how ever give the pup at least 3 days of being in the hospital and on iv fluids before making any decisions on his chances. as far as your pup with the cancer, that is a tough one. if up to date with the vaccines theoretically he should be fine. but since cancer weakens their immune systems it is hard to say. though i wouldn't think your dog could come down with full blown parvo from the pup he may come down with a milder sickness. keep an eye on him and if he looks under the weather have him checked out right away instead of waiting a day or two.
out_cst, Why do you think the person in your second post is the same guy as this Marco? I see both addresses are in Mission, TX, but the phone numbers are different and the second person is selling chihuahuas, not bull terrers. http://www.terrificpets.com/dogs_for_sale/viewad.asp?adid=11242 You think they're one and the same?

Last year we moved into a house where the former dogs here had parvo. Although they survived, the virus can remain in the ground for up to a year. We had dachshunds who got very, very sick before we realized even what it was. We had never dealt with parvo before. We took them to the vet with an estimated cost of $1000 per dog, and then no guarantee they would live. I didn't have $4000 to spend. The vet gave us the medications to self administer, which consisted of pills, pedialyte, and pepto bismal. Within 24 hours we saw improvements and within 4 days the dogs were completely 'feeling normal'. All at a cost of $75 per dog. All 4 survived and are now as healthy as ever. After this experience, I will always use the self administered medication method. This also allows me to be with my dogs while they are sick. Once I got my schnoodle, I made sure she was properly vaccinated before bringing her home. Had no problems with her. Parvo is a very sad disease and anything an infected dog touches- carpet, furniture, the ground.....anything....carries the virus at that point. Even once the virus is irradicated (by waiting it out or heavy bleaching ahich sometimes still does not work) it can still be re-deposited on the ground by something as simply as a bird dropping.
Mikey...... (your comment) My pup Max(labrador) was tested positive for parvo today.He has been vomiting depressed and had bloody diarhoeaa We took him in on Tuesday Night at midnight as he had been getting worse and worse since last seeing the verts earlier in the day. Todays thursday we got the pup last thursday (aint even had it a week hardly!) it has obviously caught the virus from the breeder's home where we bought it from ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ is not necessarily true. We moved into this house and our dogs showed signs 2 days later. It very well could have been present at your home, even if you hadn't seen signs of it before, a stray dog or anything could have deposited it there.
I just found this topic today because my Saint Bernard puppy (4 months old) was hospitalized yesterday and diagnosed with parvovirus. When I did a search on saints and parvo, this link appeared. The aggressive support treatment they are using to attempt to save my baby girl is quite expensive ($3000). However, if it works, it will be worth every penny. The virus took her from being the rambunctious hellraiser I've grown to love so much for the past three months to an unresponsive, depressed lump of dead weight within 7 hours. Today, she is responsive, somewhat energetic and much less depressed. My vet is giving her a 50% chance of survival, but somehow I am cautiously optimistic that the prognosis is better than that. I am curious what happened to the saints with parvo that this thread was posted about. It would be great to hear anyone else's experiences (especially positive ones) regarding this vicious virus. firstname.lastname@example.org
