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] OMG.. please, , if you havent tried the charcoal with Pedialyte, please do. I would suggest that if your puppy/dog is having trouble holding anything down, don't give it to him/her until you have given an enema of electrolytes.
Here is my story..We were getting a new Papillion and ended up with two, a half brother and sister, after we lost our family dog(a papillion) to trauma about a year ago. Anyhow, they are almost 7 months old and have had all shots but are due their 6 month shots. :( Roux, the male got really sick almost a week ago, it got so bad, the throwing up and diarrhea that I really thought I was going to lose him that nite.. I tried keeping him hydrated..nothing was working. I brought him to the vet and he tested positive for parvo. They said if I didnt bring him to the Animal emergency hospital, he wasnt going to make it. I had no choice, , to the tune of $2,000. Money I really don't have, , he is still there.
Bella, the female began to get sick Friday nite.. I tried everything and was trying to figure out what I could sell to get her into the hospital when I happened upon this site. she was going down.. I tried the enema of pedialyte, she stopped long enough at 4am for me to get to the 24 hour drugstore where I got the charcoal in vitamin form, broke it open and mixed 2 tablespoons with 1 cup of pedialyte. She has not thrown up or had diarrhea since. she is getting up. She still looks like hell but she is not dehydrated and shes moving around. ITS UNBELIEVABLE... but I really believe if theyre not keeping anything down, the enema gave me the ability to get the charcoal in her system to do its thing. I will let you know if anything else changes. I believe its saving her life.. I really do.
