What is Parvo?
Parvo is the nickname for the canine parvovirus, a contagious virus that can be deadly to puppies. A parvo vaccine is available for dog owners to give their pets in order to prevent infection, but the vaccine does have side effects of which pet owners should be aware.
The parvo virus attacks either a dog's digestive system or its cardiac system, while the lymphatic system may be overwhelmed also. Parvo symptoms include a lot of vomiting, such that many puppies die from dehydration rather than the virus itself. Other parvo virus symptoms include fatigue, dysentery, and fever. You may find blood in the feces.
Natural Remedies to Treat Parvo in Dogs
Keeping your dog hydrated is critical. Adding something antiviral such as apple cider vinegar or activated charcoal to water or broth can help kill off the virus at the same time. Homeopathic remedies show some promise as well, as you will find below or from a holistic vet.

[YEA] I have a 11 week old English bulldog named Diesel that just got Parvo. I have had a pitbull puppy die before so I know how quickly this virus effects puppies. I woke up at 5am to find my boy had thrown up several times and did not want to eat or drink. Yesterday he ate but not at his usual rate (usually scarfs his food down). I began searching online and came across this website. I went to Walmart due to noticing an earlier post the activate charcoal which is also called activate carbon is sold in the fish section. It cost me $6USD to purchase, I also purchased pedialite and Gatorade. Once home I poured some Gatorade, pedialite, and two tablespoons of activated carbon into my blender. The carbon was in chunks and needs to be powdered for easy consumption. My buddy drank it right up and not even 30min. later was running around and playing. A complete 180 degree from where he was this morning. Thank you everybody and this method does work!! Don't give up on your best friend.
