Parvo Symptoms and Using Parvaid as a Treatment
Symptoms of Parvo in Puppies
Parvo is a devastating disease that affects all dogs, but puppies in particular. A puppy affected with Parvo has few chances of survival. The constant vomiting and diarrhea will take a toll on his health and may exacerbate an already vulnerable immune system. The puppy will become dehydrated pretty quickly, and drinking may cause further stomach upset and further vomiting. For this reason, it is better to offer ice chips.
A dehydrated puppy will quickly become lethargic, and the skin on his back and shoulder blades will not snap back in seconds when lifted. Rather, it will return into position slowly, or worse, will remain lifted up.
Chances of survival are slim, and most puppies require immediate IV fluids and medications to beat the odds. These expenses of putting an IV line plus the hospitalization can easily amount to thousands of dollars.
With this tough economy, many people may opt to put the poor puppy down.
Treatment for Parvo in Puppies
This is where Parvaid comes into place. When people were unable to afford veterinary care, they opted to give Parvaid a try, hoping for a miracle. With an 85% success rate, when Parvaid was supplied early enough, the miracle may be closer to reality.
Parvaid has many success stories from its website, and with a bottle costing less than $50, it certainly will not hurt to give it a try, if the prohibitive costs of veterinary care are not a choice.
Parvaid may be found in some pet stores that supply Amber Technology products. It is best to call in advance, prior to heading out the door. The product may not be easy to find. Parvaid may also be shipped via mail order. But when time is the essence this may not be a good option.
Parvaid is recommended to be used with Vibactra Plus for a better treatment choice. The use of Parvaid will not hurt the puppy if he has another gastro-intestinal issue not related to Parvo. Parvaid is a natural remedy made of Peppermint, Spearmint, Chamomile, Plantain, Echinacea and serval other herbs.
Parvaid may also be used as a preventative for dogs that were just exposed to other dogs sick with Parvo.
Parvo is truly a devastating disease. My friend's dog had to be put down because she could not afford the vet trip. While Parvaid in some cases cannot replace the fluids, electrolytes, and supportive treatments provided by your vet, it is certainly another option for those owners that are looking for an alternate treatment plan.

Questions & Answers
How long can a dog live with Parvo?
This is a difficult question to answer. It would depend on a variety of factors such as the immune system of the dog, how dehydrated he gets, whether he is eating and drinking, how much vomiting and diarrhea he gets, the size of the dog, the level of care the dog gets, age of the dog (adults vs puppy) etc.
As you can see, there is no simple answer to the question of how long does a dog may live with parvovirus. What we know for sure though is that left untreated, parvo is a potentially deadly disease, especially in young puppies. If your dog has parvo, please see the vet at your earliest convenience.Helpful 18
