its pretty much just keeping her hydrated , glad hubby has experience that deff helps save some money rather then having to get the vet to do it all. We were told to syringe every 2 hours during the day and every 4 at night. You can check if they are dehydrated by pinching the skin { back by the withers is usually where i check but anywhere where the skin is tight , dont test where she has loose skin it wont bounce back} if the skin bounces back fast she is good if it sits up and takes a bit to come down she is dehydrated and id up the liquids. give a lil at a time though if she drinks on her own make sure she doesnt gulp a ton down or it will most likely just come back up.

glad you were finally able to get the nausea meds to stay down ,hopefully its a lil easier now on her,just keep up with the nausea meds dont wait too long or you face the battle of getting them down again. keeping her in my thoughts for you.

Try to get your vet to give you a prescription for Tamiflu. It is highly effective in treating Parvo. The sooner she gets it the better.

tamiflu after talking to numerous vets there is no proof it works and those that have tried it said they dont notice an increase in recoveries vs not using it. I wouldnt waste your money on that IMO.

Tamiflu is way expensive and there is not solid proof it helps. My pup got parvo at 7 months and was fully vaccinated, it can happen with a lower immune system. Here is a good site about treating parvo at home, hope it helps. You will have a long road and drinking and fluid is the most important. Don't worry about food it can just make the throwing up worse and when they throw up they lose fluids.

That is hearsay on your part. I don't know what numerous vets you spoke to but there is plenty of evidence to the contrary on the internet from vets who give their name and contact info.

Many vets won't give a prescription for Tamiflu because they 1. don't know about the treatment or 2. they don't believe it works...for whatever reason. 3. they don't stand to make any money off it. It is better for them if you pay for an office visit, buy their antibiotics and whatever other meds they will sell you, plus keeping pups overnight, IV etc. How can they stay in business if every parvo pup is cured overnight with a cheap script for Tamiflu? They would much rather make that $500.- $1500. bill.

It says right here it is used for treatment of ParvoVirus in dogs. It is an antiViral medication. The active ingredient, oseltamivir phosphate, works by attacking the Virus in the body and prevents it from spreading.

Tamiflu is for treating Parvovirus in dogs. Read more about usage and dosage in our Medications Guide at PetCareRx.

Here is some more info from vets on the success of treatment using Tamiflu for parvo.

There are links at the bottom of the page as well.

Believe what you want..if it was my pup I would be using every possible med to my advantage instead of seeing it as a waste of money.

I have looked into it when my pups got parvo and it didnt have any solid proof that is actually worked and I asked numerous vets ,on phone in person on internet and not 1 recommended it said they didnt see any results from using it. You canhave your own opinion thats fine we just dont agree on it end of story. parvo virus is like the flu , there is no cure for it its a virus that runs 7 days you do your best to treat individual symptoms whether thats vomitting or diarreah pretty muchthe major killer in parvo is dehydration. the only thing to keep them alive is to keep them hydrated there is no miracle cure.

Well I am excited and there is progress. When I finally got a nap the hubby did another 100 mgs of IV....she wasnt keeping the meds down. Called and asked about injectables...she said only worry about the nausea pill right now....we made a powder and put it in a syringe with pedialyte..waited til it dissoved and gave it to her......kept it down....2 hrs later gaver her the antibiotic the same way...shes kept it down going on 2 hrs. My hubby is awesome and is refusing to lose her. Everyone of our 6 kiddos are worried to death and keep going to check on her. She is in the master bath and we have the bay doors so they can see her and they talk to her. I know that sleeping is important so I am letting her rest but also know that love and her knowing we are there and she isnt going through it alone is alot too......I will keep you guys posted and am thankful and very grateful for EVERYTHING

Yes it has ups and downs with Parvo, it will get worse before it gets better and I would ask about the injectable meds. Anything given by mouth is going to cause vomiting and if you can I would suggest keeping her on IV fluids, that would be best. Hydration is the key and you want to limiting vomiting. Poor baby, keep with it you're doing a good job.

Ok the dr didnt seem to think the injectable would help. Who knows...we did the IVs and then crushed up the meds and the dr said that if we can keep it in her for 10-20 min her body is absorbing at least some of it. She did that with the last dose....She didnt vomit again til about 2 hrs after....then the pooping too. I was reading the website you listed on the silver and parvaid(?) they were saying something about enemas....is that an enema with the pedialyte???? If so I am willing to try ANYTHING that will help her. I am NOT losing my baby......We are doing the IV's .....every 2-4 hrs 100mgs.....in 2 spots under her skin....is there anything that we can do for the smell as well??? No matter how much bleach and candles that are burning it is circulating through our air vents.....not to pleasant...

well you are giving fluids subQ under the skin and that is better than nothing but IV means intervenes, in the vein. I advise that only if you have a full catheter set up and know how to do it. If not the SubQ is the next best thing. The problem is you have to order the pravid and wait for it. I thought about doing that for my dog but decided not to. I did try the tamaflu and it did nothing that I could tell but that is JMO. The colloidal silver is worth a try I use that when we get sick too and it helps. I have never done the enemas.

The parvo smell is the worst! when I was working as a tech it would stay in my clothes.... Sorry nothing really gets rid of it. Maybe crack the window so the air flows out not in. My puppy room was stinky today and I opened the window and my air conditioner carried the smell out and it was fine after a while when it was cleaned. Maybe that would help but Parvo is just horrible like that.
