Parvo is a infection in dogs especially in puppies caused by a contagious virus called parvo virus. This virus is deadly and can attack intestine, lymphoid tissues and bone marrow of the affected dogs. Symptoms of parvo in dogs are
  1. Diarrhea that can be bloody
  2. Dehydration
  3. Vomiting
There are no medicines available to kill parvo virus. Aim of the treatment is to treat symptoms and avoid dehydration. So, first 48 hours are very important after attack of parvo. Sever cases need hospitalization because can not be managed at home. If affected dogs survive for the first 48 hours and get treatment from the vet then they can live their life. Otherwise, majority of the affected dogs die within 48 hours if not treated by vets.

I had a 10 week old pup,who started vomiting,and having bowl movements that smelled so bad.He was sick a day an a half before I took him in to see the vet by that time he was so week he couldnt hardley walk.Doc said most dogs want last but maybe 3-4 days after getting parvo.It works very fast on the insides! I caught my pups in time to save him.

A CPV test should be given as early as possible.

Survival rate depends on how quickly CPV is diagnosed, the age of the animal and how aggressive the treatment is. Treatment usually involves hospitalization (a stay at the vet), due to the severe dehydration and damage to the intestines and bone marrow. The Vet will put him on a iv drip to keep him hydrated.

Untreated cases of CPV2 have a mortality rate approaching 91%. With aggressive therapy, survival rates may approach 80-95%, a mortality rate of only 5-20%.
