I am extremely happy to say that my 4 month old pit bull puppy named princess survived the parvo virus. We adopted her and her brother when they were about 2 months old and they were in very poor health and covered with ticks but we cleaned them up and fattened them up very nicely.  Their previous owners said that they had received their first round of shots so I was not worried about them getting sick until they started showing some signs of illness last week. The boy puppy began vomiting with a lot of diarrhea. He could not eat or drink anything. We thought he had eaten something that made him sick but by the second day he was skin and bones. This disease eats them up very quickly.  Sadly we lost him because I was to late in finding out that it was parvo.  Well a day later the girl puppy started showing the same signs as her brother. So this time I jumped on it as quick as possible. We took her to the vet and they confirmed that it was parvo but it was just too expensive to leave her there for a whole week at the vets office.  The only thing we could afford were some antibiotics that he prescribed and some electrolyte solution. When I got home I started researching possible cures for the parvo virus.  I found this website and several other that mentioned to give them pedialyte and pepto bismal. I began treatments right away even though it was an extremely messy and smelly job of cleaning up and feeding her through a syringe I did not give up. It was a 24 hour job for 3 days straight.  Finally on the fourth day she started to show signs of improvement. Today (April 18, 2010)  she is eating and drinking on her own and playing a little more than before.  The pepto stopped the diarrhea right away and the baby pedialyte grape flavor helped keep her hydrated. I noticed that her gums were pale so I also gave her some raw egg mixed in with the pedialyte and about 10 minutes later her gums turned a pinkish color. She is a fighter and I am glad I found your website with all the helpful information.

Yes there is a possibility. If your dog hasnt been eating for about three days. Then try this.
1. Try giving him raw eggs. Make sure you warm it up.
If your dog wont eat it then try this.
2. Put childrens pediasure in water and let your dog drink it.
If he drinks it then your dog should get better in a weak.
3. Also pedialyte with pepto bismol in it. And an antibiotic.
4. Keep your dog hydrated. Give him water every thirty minutes.
5. Give your dog lots of vatamine c.
I really hope your dog gets better. Just believe. Be strong. :)
I wish your dog luck and strength :)

I actually treated my chihuahua at home when she had parvo about 6 months ago. Buy some gatorade or pedialyte and get a syringe and force some down the dog every 30 minutes. The dog will puke it up and have diarrhea but continue this anyway. It will seem that the dog is not getting anything from the gatorade but it is keeping her hydrated enough to keep the dog alive. Do this every 30 minutes NIGHT and DAY! Make her a bed to lay in for comfort. The vomiting and diarrhea will last for probably 7 days or could be shorter period or longer. After about 5-7 days buy some baby food meat products (beef, turkey, etc) and mix it with the gatorade or pedialyte.....don't mix it real thick. Syringe that down the dog until the dog gets better. My dog stayed sick for about 10 days and by the time she got better we were both exhausted. The dog will probably vomit constantly at first....but don't forget to do the gatorade every 30 minutes regardless of how much the dog pukes. The dog will run fever also so keep them cool. The dog should start getting some energy back after about 8-9 days. Once again could be sooner or later. Depends on the severity of the parvo. The dog will also slobber really bad but don't worry it's from not drinking a lot of water. It is a sign of dehydration. It would not hurt to syringe water down the dog either. This is very important....keep the dog away from other animals. You need to clean the area that the dog is in once a day with bleach. Bleach is the only thing that kills parvo. Wash it's surroundings and it's covers and bedding once a day. Do this until the dog gets better. Good luck!

The vet will do nothing but keep your money and kill your dog. I have saved both my pitbulls from parvo. What I did was force gatorade threw the mouth. Then used vitaimin c emergency threw an the anas. But you have to do that slowly and make sure your dogs spin is straight. Also gave baby ceral and raw eggs threw the mouth. My dog was better after 5 days.

The best thing you can do for a dog with parvo is give it water, day and night.  It can get along without food, but in most cases the dog is too weak and sick to get up and drink. Take the water to the dog.

Do NOT give your dog bleach!  This is a caustic substance that will cause serious damage.  Antibiotics are a part of the treatment for parvo--but you should not give your dog antibiotics you have around the house.  Dog doses are not the same as human doses and not all antibiotics will help with parvo.  Also many dogs with parvo vomit and cannot keep oral medication down, fluids or Pedialyte.
Parvo is a viral infection that attacks the lining of the intestines.  This causes the intestines to slough off and this leads to the bloody, smelly diarrhea.  Once the lining is damaged bacteria that normally live in the gut get into the rest of the body causing sepsis--full body infection.  These dogs become very dehydrated from the vomiting and diarrhea.
Treatment is largely composed of supportive care.  Intravenous fluids to maintain hydration and blood pressure, intravenous antibiotics for the infection, and anti-vomiting medications.
This is a serious and sometimes fatal disease.  Dogs have the best prognosis with early diagnosis and aggressive treatment.  Your pup needs care from a veterinarian.

First of all you can treat your pup at home it is very time consuming. I did call the vet but he informed me its a 50/50 chance and the cost can be up to $5,000 ok so I thought 50/50 chance and you have my money. UM NO. SO I Keep the pup hydrated. I had a boxer pup and she had parvo I brought her inside put her in the tub and started her on penicillin of course make sure you give the amount indicated by body weight on the bottle. I also forced pedialyte with a syringe (not a needle)in her throat. I constantly cleaned up the tub and bathroom with bleach also sprayed my entire yard with bleach. My pup after 4 days was much better,.

First of all don't take advice from someone who who has only tried one method that had a 25% success rate. I'm in the process of treating my puppy at home and he is getting better after 2 days of being totally inactive he is now eating on his own and drinking without vomiting. I am using parvaid and vibactra and colloidal silver. Also pepto bismol for the nausea  and giving him a Gatorade and bottled water mixture (50/50) in small doses all with a syringe.  I offer him canned dog food or ground beef a few times a day just to see if he will eat. The first couple days I thew up everything but today he is more active and is keeping it all down. At this rate he'll be back at it in no time. Ill continue to treat him however for another week or so.

Well my dog is 6 months old and I jus found out he has parvo and I found this stuff called parvaid and I got some pedialyte to keep him hydrated and he is doing a little better he really never stopped drinking his water and things he has always been a thirsty lil guy but he just won't eat just yet and he barely had diahrrea until like 30 mins ago so I am heading to the store to get pepto bismal and give it to him with the parvaid as a enema with some other things so do your research cause I did when I was told there would be no help but the vet..the vet makes it worse to me they give the dog antibiotics that give the side effects that parvo has vomitting, dehydration and diahrrea so if you can't afford it like me don't give up and do y your research there is a way to save yur dog if you truly love and care for them god luck and my prayers are with everyone that has a pet suffering this nasty virus god bless

There are no home remedies for parvo. The parvo virus kills the cells that line the digestive tract so the dog cannot absorb water or nutrients. Try to keep him hydrated with the pedialyte. Mix 1/2 water with 1/2 pedialyte as the sugar in the pedialyte can make the diarrhea worse. Be aware that parvo has a very high mortality rate without hospitalization. Hope everything works out for you!! If you are searching for the Home Remedies & Natural Cures for the common problems .

There is a great way to get rid of parvo, a while back my dog had parvo and I couldnt afford the to take her to the vet, so I went online and looked into some remedies for parvo. And I came across Parvaid! This stuff worked great for my little puppy (shes a golden lab), she was really sick, bloody diareah, lathargic, she was a mess, so I looked into this Parvaid remedie, and read up on the company who made it I think it was Amber technology, and they said it was all natural and their product had three active ingrediants that fight the parvo virus! The sucsess rate for there product was 90% affective!! And it works!!! My little puppy is alive today because of it!!! And the best part is... It only took three days! Here is there web site www.ambertechnology.com

If the dog already has parvo chances of survival are slim. Hydration is the most important thing. Gatorade will work, or pedialyte. Make sure you do not use grape flavored. You can request a vet put a liter of IV fluid under the dogs skin and take it home and hope for the best.

I having lost three Dogs to Parvo and it is with this experience that I Urge you Please DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT think that you can treat your dog at home !!!  If in fact your pet has already contracted  this very Serious illness you need to know that Parvo if not treated by a qualified Vet at the first sign of the animals distress, is nearly always FATAL . Trust me please. I spent  $ 2,000.00 to have four dogs hospitalized for a week and sadly only one was fortunate enough to survive, if only I had taken them to the clinic a day earlier, they all might have lived, only you have an advantage that I didn't, I didn't Know they were Sick until a friend told me they looked as if they might have Parvo!

Unfortunately you can't. It's not an option! If there is no clinic near you, you must fly, drive, or something to get your dog to the vet! If you don't your dog will most likely die! I wish you and your dog safety! : (
