I am very sorry for the loss of your puppy. It does sound like parvovirus. Please be very careful about any new dogs, especially puppies, you bring to your house. Parvovirus is very contagious and lives in the environment for up to 2 years. It is a very serious and often fatal disease. If you have any puppies or other unvaccinated dogs at home take them to a veterinarian immediately for vaccination and an exam. I do not recommend bringing home any puppies for the next 2 years--if you do you need to make sure they are vaccinated with ALL their puppy vaccines. If any other dog in your house has diarrhea, anorexia, lethargy, or vomiting have them seen immediately by a veterinarian. Aggressive treatment of parvo is the best change for survival.
My Dog Has Dark Runny Bloody Poops, What Could It Be? Thanks Every One For Your Help.. But He Passed Away Sat.7-19
I had 2 dogs that had parvo and they survived on this home remedy. Please go get 2 bottles of unflavored pedialite, a package of mint tea, and a bottle of golenseal vitamins. Make one cup of tea using pedialite and dissolve one capsule of pedialite into it. Cool it down. Give by dropper or syringe into the side of yoyr dogs mouth. A few at a time about every 15 minutes. The goldenseal will shed the parvo virus out of the dogs intestins. The pedialite will replace the needed nutrients. The mint tea will soothe the stomach. As the dog feel better give more solution.
Your puppy's symptoms sound like parvo virus. You are right to continue through the night trying to administer water via the droppper. Your puppy may get very dehydrated otherwise, and his symptoms could become more critical. Is he vomiting? Has he BEEN vomiting as well as the bloody stool? Has your puppy received all of it's vaccinations? You need to get your puppy to a vet asap, in the a.m. To make sure he did not eat anything that has caused this intestinal/colon distress, and to get immediate medical treatment. Parvo virus usually is exhibited in really young pups, that have not been vaccinated. Your 5 month old, if it has been vaccinated, may have eaten something that is severely distressing it's intestinal tract/colon. Anytime there is a bloody stool, it can be quite serious. I am so sorry this is happening to your beloved puppy.
I agree, this does sound like parvo. It could possibly be worm issues also, some worms (such as whipworms) are so small, they cannot be seen. Keep her hydrated and get to the vet asap! If she were mine, I would try to locate an emergency vet in another town if at all possible.
Do not wait call a vet office immediately they have emergency hours and staff for this time of situations. It is very important for you to keep your dog hydrated try some pedialite instead of just water you need to keep the electrolytes up in your dog, and what I found more helpful is ice chips other then just water,, you might also try a bite of scrambled eggs, with maybe some white rice . But time is very critical with these symptoms. Also since its summer heat will only make dog weaker so keep inside a cooler environment. Good luck to you 5 months is pretty young and they normally only have a day or two without some sort of aggressive action being took.
The et should be open today take him in now!! His could be very dangerous to the pup!!! It might be worms or something he got into or something could be stuck in his intestine. So get to the vet asap!!!!
