My 2 year old dog got jumped by another dog and 2 days later he started throwing up, diarrhea with blood not eating or drinking hardly anything. ( I know he has Parvo cause all the dogs around the neighborhood been spreading it around). Symptoms just started I gave him some 1tbls charcoal. 12 oz of water and 2 oz of gatorade (you can free hand the gatorade, might help to get him to drink it) in a bottle giving it to him every 2hrs waiting to see what will happen hope he gets better. Wish me luck.

My 13 wk old puppy has came down being sick, at first we thought it was worms because she threw up two long ones! She was feeling better that night eating and drinking, but now we are on day 3 and she does seem to be getting any better she is now throwing up and I'm scared that it could be parvo, I went and bought active charcoal to try but I need to know how much to give her she only weighs about 2 pounds!!!! Please help in a hurry!! I forgot to mention we worked her when we thought of that reason for being sick and also I've been giving her pedialyte especially since her throwing up has increased! Please hurry!
Thanks, Jubilee's mom!

This website saved my sanity. We somehow brought parvo into our pack (7 dogs) during a time when we had a visiting dog. The 14 month old dogs were the ones who came down with it. The 1st one recovered on her own after 3 days. Her main symptoms were she would not eat or drink. The second one spent 3 days at the vets office getting IV fluids and antibiotics because she was dehydrated (main symptom was bloody diarrhea). She also did not want to swallow the fluids I was trying to give her. So the guest dog went home and then got sick so I had them bring him back so I could keep him hydrated. He vomited all day -- more than I could get in him. I was really scared. Then I found your website and read about giving the activated charcoal. I gave it every 2 hours and after the 3rd dose Barley licked his leg where some of the liquid fell. So I put water and aloe vera juice in a bowl and he lapped it up. He has gone back to not drinking (or eating), but he has not vomited at all and I am able to keep him hydrated.

I have seen parvo too many times. I live in the Mojave desert where it is rampant. My little chihuahua mix, who hasn't yet gotten all her shots, came down with it yesterday morning. By dinner, I knew for sure it was parvo and came to this site. I found charcoal as a remedy and rushed to Walgreens. I bought Charcotabs for $20.00. I gave Wolfie about a quarter can of beef broth mixed with the charcoal of 3 tabs (took the tabs apart)... Yuck.
This morning she was happy, wagging her tail, and jumping on my leg. I have given her 2 more doses today because she is still feverish. But I know that IF you can keep a dog eating and drinking, they live. I think it isn't the bacteria that kills but the toxin that is released when the body kills the parvo. However, according to my theory, the charcoal bonds to the toxin rather than letting it circulate in the body and is pooped out. Black poops EVERYWHERE! Lol (Sound reasonable?? lol) It worked for me!

Six months old puppy diagnosed by Vet as Parvo. Had been sick one day when taken to Vet. Took her home and mixed up one tablespoon activated charcoal in 12 ounces of water. Using a large barrel syringe I slowly put the charcoal into the backside of her mouth so she would have to swallow it. Even though she is 75 pounds, one glass of this mixture made a great difference within one hour. I gave her two more doses at 2 hour intervals and she was by this time drinking on her own and no vomiting or diarrhea [since the first dose] so put a little charcoal in her drinking water. She was eating a little by the next day and by the third day was back to full normal. I continues to add some charcoal to her drinking water for four more days [not much because then she wouldn't drink much of it, just enough to make it cloudy, mildly gray]. I have also used it the same way when my dogs have been poisoned with rat poison, with the same excellent results.

Hi, I have a 3 1/2 month old Yorkshire named Max and he was diagnosed with Parvo. Unfortunately, I do not have the money to have him hospitalized but I came across an Activated Charcoal and pedialyte solution on this site and I was wondering what the dosage for Max would be. He weighs 3 pounds. Please help me, I am desperate.

Two weeks ago I received two german shephard puppies. They had diarrhea and were completely dehydrated.They were raised outside and You could see ribs and hip bones. By this time at eight weeks several of the litter had died. I was completely unfamilar with parvo but grew up on a farm. I mixed a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar with the mother in their water and gave them treats of carrots rolled in peanut butter. In two days you could not tell they were the same dogs! Now two weeks later they are fat and happy and healthy with bright shiny coats! This week raw pumpkin for worms or unseen parasites. I would just like you to pass it on. Ps. Love your site!

I woke this morning to two of my 7 week old litter of 5 Springers not looking so hot. I found bloody stools in the pen. I stared giving them a Pedialyte solution with some honey and ACV in it. Took them to the Vet. He gave them a shot and me some meds. to start tomorrow. Told me to keep giving them the Pedilayte every 10 min or so. He didn't know why I was giving them ACV and said not to give them any more honey. When I got home two more were kind of droopy. Stared them on the Pedilayte. Also mixed in some Diatomaceous Earth. Called my husband and asked him to bring home some Charcoal. He is not home yet but all of the pups are up and around and playing like they were never sick. Still plan on giving them the Charcoal when hubby gets home. My question is how long should I give this to them. They have stared to eat some oatmeal, boiled hamburger with some cottage cheese and yogurt mixed with some pedilayte. Last time someone went to the bathroom the stool was very soft but not runny. Should I give the pills to the two that I took to the vet. or return them. Those two are doing amazing. One you would not even know she was sick this morning.

In two different occasions we have used dried arnica herb (usually in supermarkets near hispanic herbs) to treat for parvo, dogs are usually well in days. Boil a few pinches of arnica in couple quarts of water, strain let cool replace dogs water with this.
Also great for bursitis, bumps, bruises & swelling, use as hot compress.

The remedies used here are Diatomaceous Earth (food Grade) and the homeopathic Arsenicum Album...
*1-24-12* Got some great info I wanted to share, last night around 7 or so my friend called to tell me about her friend's puppy that they just found out from the vet she had Parvo, she was in the first stages of it which is lethargy and loss of appetite... So they came over to pick up some Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) (which kills viruses and bacteria quickly) and arsenicum album. Which is the homeopathic remedy of choice for Parvo... She gave 4 doses of the arsenicum album (2 pills placed in a 2 ounce amber spritzer bottle, hit on palm of hand 8 times before each dose) last night 1 dose per hour for 4 hours and I think two doses of the DE at 1/2 teaspoon per dose. I told her for today to give the arsenicum every 3 hours and the DE 2-3 times (she actually gave a dose of the Arsenicum and the DE both every 2-3 hours throughout the second day). So this morning at 10:30 I called to check in on the puppy and she had got up and gone downstairs TWICE to go potty already! Then I got a call a hour and a half later and the puppy was eating some chicken! She hadn't started drinking yet but already those two things are great improvements! Thank God for His perfect medicine!!! Will keep y'all updated as I hear them...
*Update at 7pm 1-24-12
So far she's been eating more, going outside on her own to potty and playing with her momma, not drinking but peeing so she's still improving greatly, woohoo!!!
* 1-26-12* Ok new update as of today, she began drinking today and is eating and acting normally again!!! WOW, 3 days from start of treatment to being back to a healthy state, I've recommended she continue at least one dose of DE everyday for the next 3 weeks just to make sure she doesn't catch it again, plus it has other health benefits. This treatment had fast results and if everything was purchased new for this specific instance would have run about $15 total, that's a HUGE difference between the other two options which is to let the dog die or hospitalize it which is extremely expensive as it runs for 5-7 days time with intensive care. I think I'd rather do the natural method that's much cheaper, much more effective, and much faster for healing. : D

Ok so Just spoke with my friend to get another update on the dog, and guess what?! Ok well let me update ya first ; ) So after 6 pm yesterday she continued to dose the dog with the homeopathics every 15 minutes during the times the dog was up, she was resting and getting in some good naps so she left her be while sleeping but dosed every 15 minutes while awake and when her belly felt like it wasn't hot anymore and then spaced it to every half hour which is perfect, she was following the dogs body and adjusting the dose based on the recovery. She also dosed the dog two more times with DE before bed, the dog was up and drinking again and in the night threw up one last time but it was clear with some DE chunked up in it.
This morning she woke up her owner with lots of kisses, she's been wagging her tail, going potty and feeling great already eating and drinking here and there! AMAZING, 24 hours after the first dosing and she's practically cured, I'm shocked, I thought it would take longer with her case getting so severe so quickly! Since I've forgotten to mention this previously, these dogs are small chihuahuas, this virus is so horrible it needs large frequent doses of DE to extinguish it, the frequent dosing of the homeopathics is to stop vomiting, diarrhea, give comfort and alleviate any pain the dog experiences, it's amazing the quick recovery with these two marvelous God given medicines!

SWEET! Got some more good news on treatment for parvo, the puppy has been doing just great and amazing, her mother however, was not so lucky and came down with the parvo and quickly progressed to vomiting blood, this began last night. This morning she was given an anti-nausea pill (not sure what kind) and I was called about her condition, they came over quickly to get some phosphorous that we added two pills to the original arsenicum spritz bottle, she was given this every 15 minutes for an hour and a half and I recommended that it be given again for every hour for four more hours then reassess. At this time she was not throwing up from the anti-nausea pill and was then given a dose of pepto with a tablespoon of DE mixed in with a bit of water so it wasnt pasty. Shortly after she had a bout of diarrhea and began shivering, this was at 11:20 AM.
I called to check in on her just now and she has not vomited again, has not had any more diarrhea, was given a second dose of the DE in plain water and has only received homeopathics and DE alone since then. She is acting like herself again, has been able to sleep for the first time since yesterday and even went out to pee. Sounds like we have another parvo recovery!!! Our Heavenly Father has been so amazing, that despite living in this fallen world he did not leave us without healing

My neighbors dog had her litter of puppies and the puppies contracted the parvo-virus, one puppy had died. He was desperate to find a natural cure due to the fact that the vet bill would have been staggering for 7 puppies. He searched the web to find a natural cure and kept finding that colloidal silver helps cure parvo. He called me, knowing that I make colloidal silver. I treated all the puppies and the next morning they were up and playing and eating again.. My neighbor and I were both quite shocked at the sudden turn around. I continued to treat the puppies for a week.
The silver was 70 to 100 PPM
Given twice a day for a week
Feed canned wet food, since parvo dehydrates
