    well no doubt I would take it to the vet. i aint tryin to play dr giggles or nuthin.but im just askin what the folks do THAT DONT take em to a vet. what theyre remedy is and how successfull it is.

    and simms,
    im not sayin that vaccine will COMPLETELY prevent the dog from parvo, but its the most you can do right?
    and i didnt know that fully grown dogs can get it, my dogs are 2 & 3 yrs old. can they still comedown with parvo?

    we had a 1.5 year old, blue healer die from it! but even vac.ed dogs can get it yes! but you lower the chances with the vacs.

    I'm pretty sure cause i've had Boris 5 years brought to Calgary and Ontario,& Quebec. Dragged all over the map for 5 yrs! Never once had his shots at all! never ever got sick once in his life and beat the parvo outbreak at my place no problem .!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So it depends on the condition of the animal the interaction it had with the disease and infected animals.

    I have mine on chain spots, always clean and fresh water & food.

    But still 5 0ut of 8 got sick. Just the luck of the draw I figure. The dogs that brought it to my yard were unaffected by the parvo! Not a sign they had, were, or were about to get sick. so not sure what to tell you brother!:o

    So very true! they recommended; Chicken, no fat, boiled and long grain rice, and electrolytes for 2 weeks,with or without chicken brooth( which was great for the one male who would not eat for almost 9 days) then chicken boiled and rice and kibble in 3 equal parts (with or without chicken broth) for the following 2 weeks back at the house after vet treatment for 8 days. there stomach will still be raw for a while, and soft is best. just like you said.;)

    {Most likely boot contamination or loose hounds caused house dog and 3 pups to get sick, still interacting with the ("untied sonofabitch" Jerry the hunting hound!) was a dog house flousy and every time i came home from work i would have to haul his ass out of there dog houses and put him in him. but every nite the deer hounds were at my place(2 weeks) he was in a different house and the dog chained to that house was out side lookin in lol ......but like i was saying he is the most likely reason for contamination with my dogs. (because the pups play with the mofo and so did Sami the house dog}

    Isolation only works for controlled spreading of a disease if all dogs are tied lol........ including social pets and hounds!!!!

    A mate of mine's dogs have parvo at the moment so I have been up there giving him a hand. In addition to most of what was said earlier we also use primperan to try and stop/prevent them vomiting. I've even taken the shit and it works.

    My bill For the 3 Redboy/ Frisco pups, and what they used and i got charged for, pretty much..... IV's and Tamiflu 75mg, and electrolites to stop the dehydration, and i think they used 2-3 bags of I.V. per pup Buck-shot was the worst then Yerik and then Dixie(Sashanka).

    Yeah I'm thinking the same thing!!!!!

    I forgot to mention the ammilosilin too(sp?) for the secondary infections. And they eat chicken and rice , 2 tbsp's every 2 hours till better could be a week after parvo trea ment to 2 weeks after treatment till they are on a normal diet of kibble and then even they say, mix with warm water for a bit till there guts heal.

    Parvo turns there guts to a scabby mess the lining disappears and has to re-grow, so imagine that when you feed the dog or pup a bowl of kibble and there wolfin it down . "feed small amounts, soft, often" and you can't go wrong pulling them threw the Parvo.
