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.

I have 3 pups, the other 1 died because of parvo. The other 1 is on his way also. I hope I will be able to save them using activated charcoal. Need to rush to the pharmacy.
