Natural Parvo Treatment for Dogs

Parvo Shot Side Effects
Posted by Nicole (Lake City, Fla ) on 03/03/2017

I have been treating my 4 month old pup who has contracted the parvo virus for the last four days ( with water and Pedialyte plus a vitamin cocktail, flitstone with extra vitamin C ) he was responding well till this morning. During the first day of water and vitamin cocktail the next morning he woke up full of spunk, which we then went ahead and gave him the parvo ( 5/1 ) vaccine. we assumed after 8 hours and no systoms he was on his way to recovery. So I stopped all water/ vitamin. We were wrong the next morning he was not well we knew we're taking a risk, while researching I found DE which I have given two dosages in the last two hours bout 10 ml each time. My question is am I giving the right dosage I cannot seem to find the actual doses online for Parvi my question is am I giving the right dosage I cannot seem to find the actual doses online for Parvo. I also need to know where to get aresicum Album.

Activated Charcoal, Oregano Oil, IV Fluids

Our 18 month old Schnauzer started getting sick Sunday evening and we took her in on Tuesday morning when she wouldn't eat anymore and was lethargic. She tested positive for parvovirus and she was kept at the vet, put on IV and given anti nausea/vomiting meds. She got worse before she got better and we felt horrible that we didn't realize what it was at first.

Then I started giving our 7 month old, 80 pound Boerboel charcoal capsules in his ground beef treats. I also gave him oregano oil - I put 5-10 drops of oil in a capsule and gave him 2 every morning. So I gave the oregano oil in the morning, and then 4 charcoal capsules in the afternoon and evening.

On Friday he wouldn't eat, started to vomit and had loose stool. We took him in immediately, and they started him on an IV and meds. He has not had anymore vomiting or diarrhea and he is eating - a little picky, but he is eating! He will be coming home today.

Our girl will be coming home in a few days - as soon as she will eat by herself.

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.


Activated Charcoal - Where to Buy

For pet owners residing in Metro Manila, Philippines, you can buy activated charcoal capsules from a tenant inside Shopwise Pasong Tamo, Makati city. The tenant is selling herbal/alternative medicines, tea and coffee. Price is P250 per bottle. I think other mall tenants like this are selling activated charcoal in other outlets. I lost my 2 babies buchi and boggart to parvo and it was heartbreaking.


Vaccinations Prevent Parvo
Posted by Mandi (Ohio) on 04/18/2015

Parvo is a very easy virus to avoid if you just VACCINATE your pets. This means taking you puppy for regular visits to your veterinarian to be vaccinated properly. This does NOT mean purchasing vaccines at the local store and giving them yourself. Once a dog/puppy gets Parvo, there is only a 50/50 chance of survival NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO! The Parvo virus itself doesn't kill dogs, the effects of Parvo, such as dehydration, secondary infection, hypoglycemia DO kill dogs. Supportive care is important. IV fluids, antibiotics, anti vomiting medication, etc.

If you take in a stray puppy and your other pets are not vaccinated, you should keep that puppy separate from your other pets for 14 days. JUST VACCINATE!! Dogs that have survived with all of these "alternative" treatments were just on the lucky side of the 50/50 chances of survival.

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.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Pedialyte
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 12/14/2014

Hey ESSMom!

If this were my litter I would dose the activated charcoal with each feeding for 7 days - even if the puppies look like they are fully recovered, I would keep up with the AC for 7 days. If they are taking food just fine I would be OK discontinuing the electrolytes. The DE likely will have little effect on ascarids - consider the usual wormer from your vet if you have not had them on a regular worming schedule. The ACV won't hurt; no all vets are savvy about alternative approaches, so your vet's confusion while frustrating is understandable. You might consider finding a holistic vet down the road.

Good luck with your litter and please report back!

I have a dachshund mix & I've been giving her pedialyte & liqified food, I saw that I could mix ACV w/ Pedialyte But I Don't Know The Right Doses, Usually I've Been Giving Her 4 3mL Of Pedialyte every other hour or 2 3mL Every hour. I Don't Want To Give Her Too Much. She's About 30 Or 35 Pound (Guessing) she seems to be getting a lil bit of energy but I'm not necessarily sure. Please help!

Hello Lexus,

3 ml sounds way too little for a 30 pound puppy - you want to keep her hydrated, so give her as much as she will take; you cannot over do it.

Rather than trying the ACV I would focus on getting activated charcoal into your pup. Please read the entire section as you will learn where to buy it and how to mix it into the food.

Tamiflu
Posted by Dog Mom (Ohio) on 12/09/2014
5 out of 5 stars

My mini dachshund puppy was diagnosed with Parvovirus a few years ago. She was vomiting, lethargic and had bloody diarreah. I went online and researched and there is a vet who works for a rescue shelter in North Carolina that has been curing cats and dogs with Parvovirus by giving them Tamiflu liquid (baby dosage), with a 100% cure rate.

I contacted him and he emailed me the dosage and instructions for my pup. My local vet reluctantly wrote the script and I had it filled at the drug store. After being on Tamiflu for 24 hours, the vomiting/diarreah stopped and she began eating on her own. She was completely recovered in 3 days. I also gave her PediaLight by syringe to keep her hydrated.

Tamiflu is an antiviral and Parvo is a deadly virus, very much like influenza. Although, Tamiflu is not a natural remedy, it definitely will cure Parvo if it is caught early enough.

I hope this helps someone.

So Sunday morning my pup was fine, but Sunday night I came home and he had nothing to do with his food or water. Same for Monday morning. Immediately took him to the vet even though he was not vomiting and had diarrhea only once, and found out he has parvo. I have been giving him Pedia lite every hour. He recently has started throwing up-Tuesday night- it's not too late to try the activated charcoal is it?

Hey Brittany!

You sure could try the AC - can't hurt, might help a lot.

Given that your puppy has been ill since Sunday I would also keep the vet informed as emergency care may be needed. If your puppy becomes dehydrated you should see the vet immediately.

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 11/02/2014

Hey Hilda!

Try 1 tablespoon into 4 cups of pedialyte and see how he tolerates it from there. If he cannot keep liquids down he is at risk of dehydrating - google on how to test for dehydration. If he becomes dehydrated you have an emergency and should see your vet. Some anti-nausea meds - Immodium and other over the counter meds may help. If he is still interested in food you could mix 1/2 tablespoon of AC into 1 cup of dog food and see if he tolerates that. Dose him frequently, and keep him warm and clean.


DIY Homemade Pedialyte

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!

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

Activated Charcoal - How to Administer
Posted by America (Arizona, US) on 05/10/2014

I just found that my 5 week old Chihuahua puppy has parvo. At least I suspect it to be parvo because he was so playful and happy and all of a sudden he just became what looked like depressed. It started on Wednesday of this week so its only been three days, he was just sleeping a lot and it threw me off because it was just so weird. I also realized he didn't want to walk and it looked like he had trouble walking. He's only thrown up three times, once everyday since Wednesday but yesterday is when he officially stopped eating and that was dinner, he ate his lunch and breakfast. He hasn't had diarrhea or any strange things in his poop. Right now im just giving him Gatorade to hydrate him, but I have to use a syringe because he didn't want to do anything but sleep. Since this morning I thought It was really bad because he was so limp and seemed like he didn't want to wake up but after giving him the Gatorade he seems a lot better. I also cannot afford to take him to the vet anytime soon. But is there any suggestions to what else I can do for him?


Activated Charcoal - How to Administer
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 05/10/2014

Hey America!

You can support your puppy by keeping him warm.

Activated Charcoal has worked for folks, and also supplementing with electrolytes to combat the dehydration that occurs with the diarrhea. If you can mix and administer the AC with Lectade - an electrolyte formula for pets, or 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 table salt if you have to.
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon flavored jello or a little juice (I used sodium free broth to add some flavor)

Dissolve the ingredients in the boiling water and cool before serving. You can also freeze it into cubes.

Mix one quarter teaspoon of the activated charcoal into one half cup of electrolyte solution and try to get your pup to drink it. Try dosing with the AC solution every 3 hours, and keep up with the plain electrolyte solution every half an hour.

Another contributer used Colloidal Silver [available online or even at your local drug store] to cure a litter of pups with Parvo:

The silver was 70 to 100 PPM [the drug store variety is usually 10 ppm - if its the only one you can, get it and use it]. Given twice a day for a week mixed into canned wet food.

Lastly, tell the breeder/owner of the litter and any other folks you know with littermates that your puppy has this virus; its likely the entire litter was exposed and all are sick.

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.


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Hennie (Pretoria, South Africa) on 10/13/2013

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.

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!

Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 04/04/2014

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:

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 :)


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 04/04/2014

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.


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Puppylover23 (Summerville, South Carolina) on 04/04/2014

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.


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 04/04/2014

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.


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Puppylover23 (Summerville, South Carolina) on 04/05/2014

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.


MMS, Activated Charcoal
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 04/05/2014

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.

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.

Saline Solution
Posted by Theresa (Mpls., Mn) on 05/20/2014

Hey Lucy!

You have replied to a post that has been inactive for 2 years, so I will offer some advice.

The amount you give varies by the results you obtain. In general:

Most dogs tolerate being given subcutaneous fluids. You can give about 10-20 ml per kg of body weight (5 -10 ml per pound) in one spot (e.g. 50 ml for a 10 pound dog) before you move to another location. It usually takes 6 to 8 hours for all the fluids to be absorbed. Check to see if the previously administered fluids have been absorbed before giving more fluids. Even though the fluids are given on the back, gravity will cause the fluids to accumulate on the belly, so check for residual fluids on the belly before you give more. Check with your veterinarian if the fluids are not being fully absorbed.

I'm giving him saline like you said to do and pepto with water and activated carbon with Gatorade and a little water; he's so sick and I don't know what else to do! Please help me.


Saline Solution

Hey Lauren!

Are you injecting your dog with the saline solution? The advice for the saline was to administer it sub-Q - with a needle just under the skin, to help with deydration.

The other remedies - AC, pepto, gatorade - are to be dosed orally.

If this were my dog and no results yet I would increase the amount of saline administered sub-Q - 20cc's - this if I could not first visit a veterinarian.


Goat's Milk, Raw Eggs, Pedialite

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.

Arsenicum Album, Diatomaceous Earth

I am a little confused about the AA and the eight sprizers on the hand before each dose. Can it be used with collidal silver for parvo. Im wondering how to administer the Arsenicum. Thank you so much

My 6 week old Jack Russell terrier puppy received his first parvovirus shot yesterday morning. In the evening he vomited and the following morning he was unusually listless and had vomited again. He does not have diaharrea.

Parvo side effects

We have a doberman 3 months old and received her Parvo shot. She was fine for about the first 6 hours then developed allergy like symptoms (swelling of eye lids and gums) Gave her an allergy tablet and she was fine by next morning.
