    Make sure you treat your yard or area where your dogs are kept with virkon trifectant whatever you choose. parvo can live for years

    whatever works as long as people are aware that once the dog or dogs are gone doesnt mean the parvo is too. if you let someone on your yard make sure they have the disinfectant on the bottom of there shoe. ps watch that fire around the house dont want no accidents:eek:

    Well the most important thing is to catch it before it gets a hold, Like most things the earlier you catch it the better.

    But you need to keep them hydrated, That is the number one priority is to make sure they stay hydrated. Then as the symptoms crop up you need to treat them as they arise.

    There really is no set list of things to keep in stock, But most often you will find vomiting and diarrhea and usually blood in the stool, A good starting point is to have your IV setups, A good variety of Antibiotics, Some things to control diarrhea and nausea, Feeding tubes, Some Anti-serum to avoid bacteria hitting the bloodstream through the stomach lining after the dog is recovering.

    Now the best thing you can do if you suspect a case of parvo is to get to your vet as fast as you can, This is not something just anyone can tackle. It requires a massive amount of time on your behalf and you really have to have some good medical knowledge because a good amount of the time the dog will require a blood transfusion and more care than a average person can provide at their home.

    You asked the question, not me. I just gave you an answer.

    Take OldTimer's advice.

    yor vet will more than likely give you the K-ration can food. one tablespoon is basic sustenance and allows the stomach/digestive track to catch up...preventing further upset stomach/the runs/dehydration...good luck...s.

    chill dude....

    You can bring almost anything home with you on your own shoes and clothes. Vaccinated Adult dogs can get parvo, not common but it can happen as it is viral. It can attack the body to the point that it will can not respond to any therapy or treatment it recieves.

    just because you get a flu shot doesn't mean you wont catch a form/strain of flu.

    stiff back leg's, lowered front shoulders , drooling, wierd gaze in there eye's and vomiting, Bleeding rectally up to 2-3 Liters from the 45lbs. heeler at one time. there stomach and intestine lining will fall off and expell with the blood. and they "will not eat or drink for up to 9 days the vet said he seen in one case with a doberman pup. "

    and it can kill in 24 hours its a super virus of some sort i guess?

    I never got the female pup today she had vomited and was not eating so they decided they should keep her still. I agreed, they have been real good to us sofar!

    And lil bouts is still the sickest but he lifted his head and wagged his tail, so i am confident he will keep fighting!!!:) Yerik had just had a big skwert before i got there so i couldn't get to close but he is standing and looks good! When he didn't eat his food when i put it down last Friday I knew something was really wrong!!!

    you just take them to the vet!!! Period.

    if your asking you don't have the training of experience. so you just go to the vet. they put the dog on antibiotics to take care of secondarty infections, IV/with sugar cause it will not likely eat for 7-9 days, and TammyFlu pills for the virus killing, if the body will keep it down, sometimes they give them something to help them keep the meds down too. but you would go to the VET! Right!

    I was told to watch force feeding, as they will have no lining in there intestines or stomach. and the IV with sugar is to get them threw there fasting. and alows faster healing. but if it wants to eat feed it. just what this vet was telling me anyway. made sense to me tho! just start with something soft

    They said what STPFAN wrote, chicken breast no fat and white rice blended to mush. and 1-2 tbsp every 2 hours. and oral electrolites as well and antibiotics for the secondary invading infections. but they will be put on soft kibble(watered down) in two more days. all in all the bills $1700 for 3 6 month old pups to get parvo treatment. and it would of cost $315 to prevent this from ever happening with there vacs.!!!! Lesson Learned ;). and i got the other 2 adults in for there update shots tomorrow!

    and we still have the bill for the blue heeler that died too!

    So get every dog or, expected to be bred bitch, there shots to cover your butt!!!

    are you supose to give dogs one shot ever 2-3 years after they get the puppy rounds and your bitch before you breed her?

    rabies is good for 2 yrs, everything else is yearly i'm pretty sure!
    and if you get the female shots before you breed her the pups will carry the protection to ensure they make it to the 12 week old shots stage. Parvo and hepititis are a bad way to loose a bitch or a litter of pups too!

    ***but by law I think rabies has to be given every year! but it does last in there system for 2 yrs tho!
