Bonnie and her Brother Clyde were found in a burlap sack in a very deep ditch, and has come down with parvo. I took her to the vet and have I.V. solution but as you know the diarrhea and stomach upset are a big issue. I mixed coconut water with coconut milk and aloe vera water to help with hydration and to get some nutrient in her. I also gave her some pepto to help with stomach upset. I will keep you posted but she is no longer fighting the coconut water mix but is allowing me to put it in her mouth so she can drink it.

I gave my puppy with parvo electrolytes every hour and a dropper of colloidal silver every 2hours...after 3 days..I fed her raw egg....she pulled through..But now I have a new puppy whom I didn't bring home until he had his first 2 shots..He became sick last night after eating a capsule of garlic. He threw up last night a few times and today he has diarrhea but not bloody..plus he's drinking water on his own???

Lisa,

If this were my puppy I would treat for Parvo ASAP and continue treating for at least 2 weeks AFTER he looks fully recovered.


Colloidal Silver

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

I have found that giving Echinacea (antivirus) to all pets in the house works wonders. Used it when I had 20 rescued kittens/cats, couldn't affort to vaccinate all of them, they all stayed well. Putting colloidal silver in the water helps kill any bacteria or other things they might share.

Treatment for Parvo - Activated Charcoal and Pedialyter

You can find AC at your local drug store; aquariums stores have some in a pinch, but its granulated and you would need to use a coffee grinder or food processor to pulverize it into fine powder.

Activated Charcoal works especially well when used with electrolytes to combat the dehydration that occurs with the diarrhea. You can make this recipe at home:

Homemade Pedialyte

  • 4 cups of water (boiled or bottled drinking water)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Morton lite salt (because it has potassium in it as well as sodium chloride) Can use regular table salt if you have to.
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon flavored jello or sodium free broth to add some flavor

Start with 1 cup of electrolyte solution in a small jar with a lid; add 2 heaping tablespoons of AC and then put the lid on and shke to blend. This goes into a syringe well and then can be placed into your dog's mouth; tip the head back and gently depress the plunger to allow him to drink it slowly.

If your dog has an appetite, you can mix the AC into canned dog food and make that a bit wetter and sloppier by adding the electrolyte solution to the wet food. The virus generally does not kill the dog - its the resulting dehydration that does the damage - so make sure you get those electrolytes down.

To start, dose the plain electrolyte solution every 20 minutes or so - however much he will take - to combat the dehydration. Every 2 hours or so dose the AC and electrolyte mixture - however much you can get down. You don't state the breed of your pup, so a Chihuahua might get 2 cc's while a pitbull might get four times that. Now, a 4 week old puppy would normally have 4-6 solid food meals or more since he should still be nursing on his mom. So offer your pup the wet AC and electrolyte loaded food at least 4 times a day for 5 days and up to 7 days. In the early stages it is critical to get the electrolytes and AC down, so if he won't eat canned food don't force him, just focus on getting the electrolytes and AC down for the first 24-48 hours.

Please report back on the progress of your sick pup!

I had a 4 month old pitbull that got diagnosed with parvo the vet gave her an anti-viral shot and sent her home because we couldn't afford to admit her and told us be prepared for her not to make it just make her comfortable. Then some one told us to try mixing a egg and goats milk together and givng via needless syringe very couple hour and pedialite every 15 minutes that way she was getting some protien and calcium along with hydration even though she vomited it up most of the time after 3 days of round the clock care. On christmas eve she started drinking and eating on her own and eventually made a full recovery.

Was the someone a grandma? (Old wives tales are often true.) When my year old daughter hadn't been able to keep anything down in days and our doctor should've been charged with neglect, my mother-in-law called from miles away. She told me to get the white of an egg, add a wee pinch of salt and to stir it (not beat) gently, then to give it to my daughter. It coats the stomach lining and was what probably saved my child. My son's life was saved with goat's milk yogurt so mixing the two together seems like pretty sound advice as we, and even our creatures, are all unique and sometimes respond to what doesn't work for others. Thanks for reminding me. I've got a small pup down with parvo and am getting the egg white now.

I've cured parvo in puppies about 8 times so far with grapefruit seed extract.

I dilute 5 drops in 1 ounce of water and give them a couple dropper fulls of the mixture every hour around the clock until they start to feel better, I then reduce to two hours and so on. I continue the treatment for a couple days.

Once there was two pups from a litter who were sick, my puppy and one another person was purchasing...I tried pursuing him to have me try cure him but he decided to bring it to the vet. 600$ later and a dead puppy, mine was thriving and back on its feet. It worked every time for me!

My lovely Great Dane/mastiff/staghound 6mth female pup came down with the first symptoms of parvo on Tuesday evening. She refused to eat her dinner, which is very uncharacteristic for such a afst growing pup. since 7.5 weeks only she has only eaten a raw diet, which is helpful in the prevention of parvo. This was unintentional on my part, as a raw diet of meat, bones and animal parts is a normal doet for a canine. However, she still caught the virus. Tuesday morning she still refused to eat and was starting to show signs of lethargy. She still refused to eat Wednesday and the debate about a vet visit started. We monitored her closely, as any abnormal behaviour in an animal can be indicative of illness. By Thursday she was vomiting. Most days she consumes vast amounts of water and likes to remain cool. thursday evening she was depressed, lethargic, the sexondary membrane of her eye was inflamed, showing very red all around the eyes and she was standing still in her pool of water. It was too late for the vet by this stage. We spent the night watching her, she continued vomiting showing the first signs of threatening dehydration.

Friday morning we rushed to the vet with her, didn't even call first. Luckily we have been attending the same vet clinic with all of our animals for nearly 15 years. They brought her in immediately after a brief history was taken by the vet nurse. My little girl had a temp of 39.4 degrees C, she weighed in at 24.4 kgs and had lost most of the lovely condition she had previously. Large puppies lose weight very quickly. The vet admitted her immediately for IV fluids and anitbiotics, anti nausea medication and medication for diarrhoea. The vet let me know that especially heading into the weekend, I was looking at a cost of thousands. Which I most certainly can't afford.

She spent on night at the vets and this morning, Saturday, I picked her up. The vets were not particularly supportive in our decision to bring her home. During the night she had started having bloody projectile diarrhoea.

In preparation for bring her home we bought some essential supplies, as we had never had to deal with parvovirus before.

~ puppy training pads to contain the expected mess.

~apple cider vinegar for disinfecting and for treatment.

~aloe Vera juice for nutrients

~large syringes for subcutaneous saline injections for hydration, this is vastly important as most oral liquid will be vomited and cause a chain reaction of further dehydration

~subcutaneous needles from the vet, as the pharmacy required a prescription

~saline solution from the pharmacy for subcutaneous injections

~rectal thermometer from pharmacy

~plastic drop sheeting in a roll from the hardware store, protection for furniture and walls. I'm damn serious about the mess.

Luckily for me I'm visiting my parents and my father is a homeopath. After checking her behaviour, symptoms and response to stimuli he determined to use Absinicum Album 1M. I had already as a precaution given her 2 homeopathics as first aid, these were:

~virus and bacteria

~nux vomica

Once we got her home, she pooped blood and vomited bile, which is an amber colour, at 10:30am. we gave her as many subcutaneous saline injections in the next 5 hours that we could without causing too much stress. I monitored her closely, I doused her with Absinicum album roughly every 30-60min. I cut back on the nux vomica and only used it when she was excessively drooling or was clearly nauseous. I mixed a splash of apple cider vinegar with about 1/3 aloe Vera juice and 2/3 water. I've been using the large syringe to force feed her roughly 15-20ml of liquid every 15-30, unless she was sleeping.

By 5:30pm this evening, Saturday, she can move about on her own and started hovering near the door to the room we'd isolated her in. I carried her out to a section of lawn that's separate from our other animals. She had 2 bouts of bloody diarrhoea and urinated twice, her urine was not overly yellow, indicating that she was hydrated enough that her kidneys were not suffering overly. I carried her back inside and continued the above treatment. However, her temperature climbed to 40 degrees C. Her eyes became bloody again and were weeping. I gave her virus and bacteria homeopathic whenever her eyes became red. I wet down her paws and forelegs to cool her fever and drain the heat from her head.

By 10:30 her paws are cool, her tummy is pleasantly warm and no longer blisteringly hot, her eyes are not red. She's been out to toilet again and only had one bout of diarrhoea and urinated once. Tolerated 3 sal injections, and has held down liquids for 3-4 hours at a time.

We're not out of the woods yet, but she can walk, and is not incontinent. Is cranky about her injection and will get up and have a weak tantrum about the entire affair. Things are looking good. My partner is taking the night shift, as he is much more confident with giving the injections, especially on his own. He'll wake me in case of anything he doesn't know how to deal with. Fingers crossed my angel continues making such progress.

The simple instructions I've left my partner are as follows:

1. If she's drooling give her nux vomica

2. If her eyes are going red give her virus and bacteria

3. Every 2-3 hrs give her Absinicum album, especially if she's has a bout of bloody diarrhoea

4. No more than 50ml of liquid per 30-60 min, less if vomiting is frequent, don't let her drink too much herself even if she wants to. Slow and steady wins the race.

5. Only check her temp if she feels overly hot

6. Don't wake her if she's sleeping properly

7. Do wake her if shes gone for more than an hour without a saline injection.

No treatment is really a guarantee with parvovirus, but I have seen a dramatic improvement in less than 24 hrs. Bear in mind that homeopathics may often initial present with a strong reaction, maybe an increase in temp, don't panic, ride it out. Hold off on the homeopathic until the signs are there that it's required. After the second dose of Absinicum album her temp soared for about 30min. Keep hydration up is the number one priority. At one stage during the day, I noticed her shuddering when she inhaled. My father gave her another homeopathic called merc sol, the shuddering stopped within 15min. Started again about 3 hours later and stopped almost immediately after a second dose.

So, with your remedy which is good on your site with Parvovirus in puppies. You can add some of the following. I will state the reasoning as well for this natural remedy:

1. Hot English Mustard Powder

Reasoning: Parvovirus is an intestinal parasite (Bacteria, viral etc). The bacteria multiply in the intestines similar to that of worms. Administering Hot English Mustard powder eliminates and helps eradicate these parasites inside the intestines and bowel.

Dosage: A tiny little bit - around the size of a small capsule 5mm size.

Administration: This should be administered dry, and directly onto the tongue/toward the back of the throat. Have a syringe ready with some boiled and cooled (sterile) water to wash down the mustard powder. It does burn, but subsides very fast. As soon as the pup/dog has swallowed most of it, slowly syringe it down with some cool (room temperature) water. Any change in temperature may affect the very sensitive intestinal area. You can either use your finger to put it at the back of the tongue (safest), or a spoon (not advised as most pups will bite down on this and damage their teeth).

For Parvo give a few drops of MMS for about three days. See the info online.

I know dogs have been cured with this . Look up MMS website, Jim Humble. They have a section on pets. I use MMS myself. Quite affordable.

Also two of my old cats went off food, lost a lot of weight and I knew from experience this was it. However I tried MMS on them and they, being twenty years old , are doing fine three months later. I never give antibiotics as they cause fungal disease and low immune system where the gut never recovers from the depletion of good bacteria. Om

My Remedy was MMS for Parvo in dogs.

Yesterday, my 7wk female pup, suddenly came down with symptoms of Parvo, loss of appetite, refusing even water, for an entire day, and then morning diarehha, was slimmy and bloody, pressure forcing out, litterly pushing pup's back end off the ground. Then vomiting frothy slime that appeared clear. Then extreme listlessness, tired, sleeping more than usual and deep sleep, weakness increased, by late afternoon, could not balance, and diarehha became more bloody and dark pudding like, very slimy near end finish. Followed by high fever. Dehydration set in, skin non elastic, drastic weight loss. Could not afford Vet bill, and as Parvo has 90 ath rate as incurable. But intended to get pup vaccinated as appt is in 1 wk. Been taking MMS myself for over a year, with good results. Immediately, started pup on only MMS 1/4 drop ratio, i.e., 1 quarter of 1 drop ratio. The ratio is 3 drops per 25 pounds. This pup was under 5 pounds, therefore I used a quarter of a drop ratio with 4 oz. of water, and alternating with Electrolytes, and then boiled concentrated Barley water. Fed alternating MMS low doses with small bent dropper and Electrolytes first, at side of mouth for pup to lick and swallow, every 10, 15minutes. Then cooled concentrated barley water(boiled down to thick consistency)alternating also with dropper.

Saw immediate change within an hr. Dog was playful, after barley water dog wanted actually to eat its kibble. Next day diarrhea not as liquid, no blood, and dog is drinking and eating on own, playful, actually wanted to run. Fever gone and nose feels cool and wet, gums are good pink return when pressed. I will still watch symptoms with caution and change to bland diet for next 2wks till healed, as there may be damage in the intestinal lining due to blood. I will also continue MMS low dosage in daily drinking water. Will update new data. Thks, Virginia

For many years we had Chow Chow's and only seriously problems we had with them was hotspot. Then my wife decided that we should get smaller dogs and after some research we decided on the Chinese Crested. Both was about five months old when Max started getting sick and somewhere I had read there was parvo in the air. So, I get on the Net and looking for symtoms of parvo. Yes, Max had parvo and we decided to take him to the vet and two day later Max died. This was Thuesday morning. The family was broken and in meantime Joey show the same symtoms - PARVO. What was bad for me, was how Max had suffer and I decided Joey will not follow the same path as Max.

After been on the Net and specific Earth Clinic we deciced to keep Joey at home and doctored her ourself. Although I had MMS and Hydrogen Peroxide foodgrade, I decided to go for Colliodal Silver and we started to treathed Joey. She was not getting sicker but also not better. We also make sure she get all the time enough liquid. My wife and son had taken leave, to be at home to keep an eye on Joey.

Then Thursday afternoon after seeing the suffering in Joey eyes, I prayed to God and asked him why. She is not part of the man who must suffered for their sins. The word I then get from God was - MMS. I told my wife that we will use MMS and gave Joey the first dose. Friday morning I could see Joey had improved a lot. What I had learned was that the eyes tell you if your dog is getting better or not. Where Joey eyes was glassy and some brown in the white of her eyes Thursday night, it was clear and livingly Friday morning. We gave her her second dose. At 14H00 I came home and could she she looks much better, but something bother me is that she hadn't eat for five days. After talking with my wife , we decided to get some activated charcoal. We gave Joey one tablet at 16H00 and sometime at 17H00 for the first time she eat something, very little. Not long after that she vomit a little and something tell me that it is a good sign. We gave her, her third dose of MMS at 18H00 and at 20H00 we gave her an another activated charcoal tablet with some Pro- nutro.

Now, today Saturday morning she ate her food completly and walked and sniffing all around in our yard to see what she had missed out. She even chewed her bone, which she hadn't do it for the past five days and she loves her bones. I can only thanks God and my family.

The doses of MMS was made in a 50 ml glass - first was three drops sodium chlorite and 15 drops citric acid and then use a 2,5 ml syring twice. Second dose was four drops s/c and twenty drops c/a, 2.5 ml syring twice. Third dose, 5 drops s/c and 25 drops c/a, 2.5 ml syring once - fourth dose same as third. Make sure to follow the correct methods of making the MMS. Also ensure, when giving the activated charcoal, there is a time of two hours after last intake of what ever your dog had and again two hours your dog can get some food after taking the a/c.

Hope this will help you guys and most important trust God and stay possitive. Thursday afternoon was my and Joey turning point. I was at that point where I want take Joey to the vet and hope for the best, then I listened to the voice of our wonderfull God and use MMS, therefor thanks to Jim Humble who discover MMS, really a miracle supplement.

I want to follow up on my first posted letter regarding MMS and Activated Charcoal Helped Dog with Parvo .

I had read on the Net while Joey was sick with Parvo, that adult dog will not get Parvo. That is not true, because while Joey was getting better, our Chow - Shusi, eight years old - started to vomit on Saturday morning. Immediately I gave Shusi her first dose of MMS and two hours later activated charcoal. At 16H00 I gave shusi her second dose of MMS and then at 20H00 again. Shusi had eat well sofar and didn't vomit again. Meantime I decided that I will continue gave Joey MMS to ensure that she stay well.

I make MMS which was five drops of Sodium Chlorite and 25 drops of Citric Acid and gave Shusi three shots of 2. 5 ml syringe on her first dose. Second and third dose was four drops of s/c and 20 drops of c/a and two shot of 2. 5 ml to Shusi and one shot to Joey. This morning, Sunday, I gave the both the same dose as the last one. Both dogs look really good and Joey is running all over our place, which is a good sign for me.

The message here is that adult dogs get Parvo and do not forget them while you are busy to doctor your puppies. Many great thanks to your website and also the contributions of the readers. Keep up the good work.

Hey Hennie!

Thanks for the info!

Like food grade hydrogen peroxide, sodium chlorite may not be everone's cup of tea, but in a life or death situation it's an option that merits consideration.

Perhaps rescue groups and shelters that see a high volume of sick critters might do well to have this remedy on hand.

My new 4 month old puppy named Honey was lethargic, weak, vomiting, hardly drinking water, not playful, and so we took her to the vet and he diagnosed her with Parvo. He told us that she may not love until the next day and that we should let them keep her and giver her an IV and fluids. But we cant afford that, so we had to being her home. I saw your site and looked at the great ratings it had, and I decided to use the Miracle Mineral Supplement and the activated charcoal. But I wanted to know where I could find those two products. I'm giving her the Pedialyte to keep her hydrated tonight and getting the 2 products hopefully tomorrow. I really want good results from this, since I've seen that it has a 100% living rating so far. Also I was wondering since she's not eating should I just be giving her this Pedialyte until she decided to eat some food? Or should I like mix it into some canned food and give it to her through the syringe? One more thing if you have any tips you could give me that would be great, I really am hoping for a positive result with this rather than having the vet treat her.

Also she hasn't started having the diarrhea yet, so I'm trying to stop the virus before the diarrhea comes and she gets sicker.

Pleaseeee helpp. The more the merrier!

Hey Pupplover23!

I have no experience with MMS so cannot offer any advice except to google it and you should be able to find sources on where to purchase it.

You can find AC at your local drug store; aquariums stores have some in a pinch, but its granulated and you would need to use a coffee grinder or food processor to pulverize it into fine powder.

Activated Charcoal works especially well when used with electrolytes to combat the dehydration that occurs with the diarrhea. You can make this recipe at home:

Homemade Pedialyte
4 cups of water (boiled or bottled drinking water) 1/2 teaspoon Morton lite salt (because it has potassium in it as well as sodium chloride) Can use regular table salt if you have to. 2 Tablespoons sugar 1/2 teaspoon flavored jello or sodium free broth to add some flavor

Start with 1 cup of electrolyte solution in a small jar with a lid; add 2 heaping tablespoons of AC and then put the lid on and shke to blend. This goes into a syringe well and then can be placed into your dog's mouth; tip the head back and gently depress the plunger to allow him to drink it slowly.

If your dog has an appetite, you can mix the AC into canned dog food and make that a bit wetter and sloppier by adding the electrolyte solution to the wet food. The virus generally does not kill the dog - its the resulting dehydration that does the damage - so make sure you get those electrolytes down.

Give your dog the wet AC and electrolyte loaded food am and pm for 5 days and up to 7 days. If she is hungry between meals, give him extra AC and electrolyte feedings.

I just got the activated charcoal today, but its in capsules and the bottle said it was for gas. Will it still do the same thing?

Ive been giving her the Pedialyte so far and she ate a tiny bit of food and has been drinking some of her water by herself in addition to the Pedialyte I give her every hour and a half. Will this activated charcoal get rid of the Parvovirus in my baby?

thank you so much for your help :)

Hey Puppylover23!

Yes, the AC for gas is the same thing. The AC works by absorbing the toxins in the GI tract. So follow the directions posted previously and open the capsules and make sure your girl gets some down. You don't say what kind of puppy she is- so use your judgement about how much to use. For a tiny toy breed you might use only one capsule at a time; for a pitbull you might need 10 capsules at a time. What counts is getting some AC down and keep dosing it along with the pedialyte and mix it into the wet food too. I wouldn't worry about her eating, I would get that AC/pedialyte down 3-4 times a day if you can.

She's a mixed breed, but the pet store said based on her current size she would end up being a medium sized dog.

So what your saying is that rather than making her drink the 2 tablespoons of AC, only give her the AC out of about 5 capsules with the one cup of Pedialyte? I've been giving her 2 tablespoons with one cup of Pedialyte. And she's been throwing it up so far.

Hey Puppylover23!

If this were my dog I would not offer her any food; any food you can get her to eat will either come right back up or run right through her.

I would dilute the AC with the pedialyte and continue trying to get it down her. So if 2 tablespoons of AC into 1 cup of pedialyte isn't staying down, make it 1/2 teaspoon to 1 cup of pedialyte. Try to get *some* AC into her GI tract so it can start working. So try diluting it way down and see if that helps.

If she pulls through - and I am praying for you! - if you take her weight at 4 months and double it you get a ball park idea of how much she will weigh as an adult.

She's started having diarrhea late last night, and I diluted the AC like you said to 1/2 a tablespoon. and she threw it up so I'm going to continue to dilute it to about 1/4 of a table spoon and see how that works.

Hey Puppylover23!

Consider adding an anti-diarrhea med such as Immodium. Dilute the activated charcoal into the pedialyte until she can keep it down. The most critical thing is to keep the electrolytes up and keep her from getting dehydrated. So if she can keep the pedialyte down when its NOT mixed with AC, try dosing plain pedialyte inbetween attempts to get the AC-pedialyte mixture down.

Make sure she is plenty warm; you don't want her to use up her vital energy trying to stay warm while she is fighting the parvo.

5 week old puppy classic parvo.

Our method:

  • 1 cup Gatorade
  • 1 teaspoon Diatomaceous Earth
  • 1 teaspoon or urine..i used my own .
  • 1 capful Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 to 4 activated charcoal tablets with magnesium..cvs anti gass brand
  • 1 probiotics capsule.
  • 1 raw egg( the egg separate) only gave after gagging stopped on day 5.
  • Raw coconut oil( would rub his gums and tongue with it and try to get some down him )
  • Marijana smoke ( we would blow a small amount around him before forcing solution )it stopped him from gagging so much.


Every 2 hours first 3 or 4 days gave mixture without fail.

Day 5 he looked like he would die. We just kept up the schedule every 2 hours trying to force as much solution as possible..set an alarm waking hours ever 2 hours sleeping hours every 3 or 4 hours..we all work and or school this was not easy ..we look like zombies the puppy looks better.

Day 6 started forcing raw egg in addition to the solution.

Day 7 he is up playing and drinking and eating on his own...i made him boiled chicken n rice he eats like he is starving and has normal bowl movements I think we won...i am going to continue with the charcoal solution for a few more days.

They may look worse before they look better ..just keep dosing them with electrolyte and fluid n charcoal. Stay on schedule set alarms ... I felt like giving up thought was a lost cause ..but I think he will make it ..now...on day 5 we started with the egg this seemed to snap him out of his coma. Like state but prior to this the egg came straight up ..i think you got to get them holding the fluids first ..but they do need the egg after a few days ...

If you plan to save them don't plan to sleep...but they can be saved.

Oh also loving on him a lot and telling him we love him and want him and praying to God.

This is the second dog I saved ..the first one I used Pedialyte and Pepto..both survived.

The number one thing is to be their iv pole ..squirt fluids in their mouth as much as humanly possible...don't stop and don't give up ..stay on schedule. That's the key..

We are 14 days out or so and my puppy continues to improve. He is fat, happy n playful...

I just wanted to add we never forced his head back to administer meds we did it as gently as posdible just lifting his lip and shooting it threw his teath. Some came out but some got in..and since I tried both Pepto and charcoal on 2 separate dogs I have to say the charcoal works better...but in a pinch, the Pepto is a good second...

Also I learned the hard way when they first start eating the have to be limited and fed small portions several times a day or they overeat and distend their stomachs...

I also want to thank everyone who contributed their learned knowledge to help save Kitkat ..and offer condolences to those who lost their dogs my heart goes out to you and the only comfort is knowing they died being loved and cared for and not alone ...and if you're fighting parvo now, keep fighting. All is not hopeless and with the treatments on this site, they got a chance.

OMG! OMG! I've lost 3 dogs total to parvo over the last 8 years. (Chihuahuas) Just recently in the last 2 days I lost the 3rd puppy to parvo. Now I have an entire litter of 4 puppies sick with either parvo or distemper! None would eat or drink anything for 3 days! I thought I was going to die from stress! Through trial and error, I have discovered that these things work wonders and I would swear by it. We aren't out of the woods yet but I had to share this because they haven't moved in 3 days. Haven't eaten or drank but a slurp here and there. Vomiting, gagging, diareah.....the whole 9 yards. I went to TSC and the health food store and purchased these things:

*Colloidal Silver/Sovereign Silver

* Nutri-Vet Puppy-Vite (Nutritional Supplement Paste

* GOATS MILK! Puppy formula and real raw goats milk in bottles from the Amish market

* Activated Charcoal and Pepto Bismol

* Pet Natural Care "Kaopectate"

* Pedialyte of course!

Came home, pumped my puppies full of all that! They gobbled down the goat's milk and were immediately up playing within 2 minutes. The one puppy tired out pretty quick. But the other 2 are up roaming around. These dogs had not budged for 3 days! 3 whole days! And they are up playing! And running and drinking water!

Look me up on Facebook, send me a msg if you are in panic mode about your dog! I'll help explain everything I did! I just literally saved the rest of my litter! On a budget of $100.00! I'm seriously pissed I didn't know about these things before! I miss my best friends that passed! So I'm posting this in honor of them to save the life of a dog or puppy or litter!

My puppy survived Parvo and I couldn't have done it without this site!!! OMG.

List of things I needed:

1- Chart to record everything you're doing. I found that after 24 hrs of everything I was wiped and forgetting what to give him. Keeping a chart was so helpful!!

2 - 2 syringes (1 for Activated Charcoal (AC) solution, 1 for electrolyte solution) the pharmacy at Walmart told me they didn't sell them so they just gave them to me for free. (non needle!)

3 - 4 towels (our pup struggled with sleeping on hard surfaces so we always had a clean one ready to be rotated in when the last one got soiled.)

4 - Puppy pads for quick catch and clean up

5 - Bleach (to clean all surfaces and towels that get soiled on)

6- Colloidal silver with dropper

7 - Activated Charcoal Solution (If you're buying the capped AC I did 1 cup pedialyte, 1 cup purified water, 25 AC capsules opened and poured in solution. Shake before each use) Recipe: https://www.earthclinic.com/pets/parvo.html

8 - Arsenicum Album from Boiron (2 pellets dissolved in 5 ccs of purified water)

9 - Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth

10 - Lots of Electrolyte Solution and left in cage Recipe: https://www.earthclinic.com/pets/parvo.html

So last week Wed Dec 28th, 2017 our puppy went into SPCA to get its final visit (microchipping & nurturing). Due to scheduling conflicts I couldn't pick him up until the next day. I picked him up and he was erratic. He was super skinny and wanted me, until I picked him up to hold him and then he was clawing me to get down. It was very weird behavior for him. Fast forward to the following Tue Jan 3rd, 2017. He's been doing fine all day. He eats that morning. That night he throws up everything he'd had in his belly. He refuses to eat/drink anything that night. The next day he's back to normal. He's eating, drinking but super lethargic. All he wants to do is snuggle all day. Again, very abnormal behavior from a puppy. At this point we've had him for well over a month (foster then adopted from spca which is why we had to neuter/chip/vaxx up to date). He's 4 months old at this point. Thur he refuses any food. He refused water unless I forced it in with a dropper and he is literally throwing up every 20 mins with yellow mucus diarrhea. I know somethings up so I take him to the vet. Surprise! It's Parvo season!! The vet lets us know that it will cost $1700 for them to tend to him. Theres no cure for Parvo, they've got to ride out the virus. But they wanted to charge extra for different things while he's in there, even though he has a record of every vaccine he's had up to date. In the end we had to refuse them because we didn't have the money. I found this site, my saving grace, and this is the schedule that I came up with:

As soon as we got home from the vet he started bloody diarrhea. For the first hour I did the electrolyte solution. But he didn't hold anything down, and the diarrhea kept coming up so I did some research and found this site that boasted Activated Charcoal and colloidal silver!! I did 3 ccs of AC electrolyte solution every hour and the electrolyte solution in between the AC doses so that I could check up on him every 30 minutes. He stopped diarrhea and vomit instantly. After four hours of this routine, we went to every 2 hours of AC dose. In the hour between the AC dose I did 2-3 droppers of Colloidal Silver and Arsenicum Album. (The Arsenicum Album I took 5 ccs of purified water and syringed it into a small bowl. I put two of the AA pellets in and let it sit until it fully dissolved. Then I syringed it in him). I also did 1/2 tsp of Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth up to 1 tsp per day. Each time he got a dose of something he also got a dose of electrolyte solution. It was so important to me that he stay hydrated so I always did the skin test to make sure he was good and not once did my pup's skin stay up, good sign!! It took about 3 days for him to fully come around again. He started drinking water last night (Fri Jan 6th, 2017). I stopped giving him the Electrolyte solution when I found him drinking on his own. I tried to give it to him anyways just as a back up but he threw it up which told me he was getting enough. I switched to AC mix twice a day today as he was showing signs of getting better. He finally ate some food tonight at dinner time!! He refused scrambled eggs with rice, burger (raw, cooked and mixed with rice), chicken stock, and wet dog food. But he loved the Natural Balance duck treats so I mixed about three up with dry dog food and he started in on it instantly. He's relaxing and sleeping now. 30 min later and no throw up makes me feel like a success!! I don't know if this will help others, as every dog is different. But the specifics of dosing medications and when was the hardest part for us to conquer. That And seeing our poor pup declining so rapidly. So far we've made it. Good luck to anyone else going through this nightmare!
