My name is Jermaine, and I'm from VA Beach. I purchased a AB about 3 week ago when the pup was 6 wks old., and told at 4 wks old a Fort Dodge vaccination was given. The breeder did email me about 1 week later to in form me some of the pups had coccidiosis, but other then that everything was fine!
I took my dog to the vet for her first 8 wks visit on Saturday (Feb 15th), and everything was fine still. No worms or parasites seen in the feces, she was given another 4 in 1 shot, treatment in case she was expose coccidiosis, and medicine for any intestinal parasites.
On Sunday my pup started to vomit and diarrhea, and on Monday (Feb17th) the same vet diagnosed Parvo.
By the grace of god the pup has survived for 48 hrs. She has been receiving Subcutaneous injection (IV under skin), antibiotics for secondary infection, and inflammatory medicine to minimize vomiting. She has received this regimen for the past three days, and she hasn't vomited or dumped in 24 hrs. The vet says the is virus gone, and try to feed her Rebound (electrolytes and Vitamin B solution) or water.
I really believe my pup is over the virus, but she still will not drink or eat. Is there any suggestion on what i can do to get her to drink, and what product can i possible get to help repair her intestines, and replenish the white blood cells in her build?
One breeder mentioned "PARVAID"
Sorry for the longer email, but if you have any comments or suggesting i thank you in advance
