Spearmint / Calcium Tea for Parvo Virus

Par-gone is an all natural product sold for dogs with Parvo Virus with field trials showing 35 out of 36 dogs saved. Their product contains: Active Ingredient is Calcium, Inactive Ingredients are Corn Starch, spearmint and sucrose. Adequate hydration is strongly recommended.

Since Corn Starch and Rice Flour mixed with water is given to infants with watery diarrhea, 1 to 5 teaspoons of corn starch in half a glass of pure water.

Spearmint herb has much the same properties as peppermint, but is milder and good for use with children's complaints. A sweetened infusion of spearmint herb is used for digestive ailments in infants including colic in babies. Spearmint tea will relieve hiccough, flatulence as well as indigestion, digestive disorders including gas, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea, upper gastrointestinal tract spasms, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

The main active ingredients in spearmint are Mint L-carvone and limonene. The leaves are the parts of the plant that are used for their essential oils that contain menthol and flavonoids containing about 50% carvone, rosmarinic acid. It has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties.

Calcium is known to be constipating. Here is the what and how to take the calcium information if you suffer from diarrhea. Calcium is an OTC supplement we all do not usually get enough of. No Rx needed to purchase this. When you take calcium about 40% of the dose gets to the bones the rest is eliminated in our waste. The calcium goes to the intestines and soaks up excess fluids and binds them together and they are gotten rid of in our waste. This is a process that can be continued by taking the calcium carbonate on a regular basis.

Preparation Methods & Dosage:

Here is my backward engineered recipe.

Boil 3 cups of purified water (not tap water, distilled is the best for this). Add 1 teaspoonful of spearmint herb (found in the spice isle at a grocery store) to a glass or ceramic bowl that a flat plate can be fitted too. Pour hot water into the bowl with spearmint herb in. Immediately cover with flat plate to prevent steam from escaping along with the healing oils locked inside the herb. Wait 20 minutes. Uncover and filter tea thru a paper coffee filter. Discard coffee filter and pulp. Next add one crushed up calcium tablet and 2 teaspoonful of corn starch or rice flour to the tea. Mix until uniformed. Administer oral with a turkey baster and anal with a disposable enema bottle. Repeat every 4 hours or as needed.

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.

My daughter's dog was diagnosed with Parvo a couple days ago. He died because she could not afford $400 a night to stay at the vet. He may have had a chance, if her vet was as kind as mine and sent him home with an IV bag for subcutaneous fluids. But I digress.
I have learned so much from Earth Clinic and it has inspired me to do further research on herbal remedies. As you know, Parvo is a dogs' version of the 1918 flu epidemic.

I told her to start her other 3 dogs on Turmeric (1 1/2 tsp 2x daily) fresh ground cloves (1/4 tsp 1x daily) and 1 slice of crystalized ginger (1x daily) in hope of keeping them alive. Parvo has an incubation period of 3 -14 days (though they could have been exposed at the same time)so I was hoping to get enough in their system to combat this terrible virus. The first dog died early in the morning, one of the other dogs had a fever that night with vomiting and diarrhea. They continued the herbs but upped the dosage a little. This morning (she got sick last night) she was doing much better. This evening she is "whole body wagging!" Though it may or may not help the one diagnosed in multi dog families, it may help the others that live in the household.

Parvo is said to survive in contaminated areas for 6-0 months and can be spread by birds, rodents and even people. Every place I read said to disinfect with bleach. They also say that Parvo does well in an acidic environment. I told them to disinfect all they could with bleach (obviously can'd do that to the car seats) to kill all they could. The virus' that survived would hopefully be killed by baking soda sprinkled heavily on carpets, yard, car, etc. I have no proof on that, but it would be worth a try since it is so cheap. Ted would probably be the real authority on that one so please add anything else you think may work Ted!

I hope this helps someones beloved companion!

Vaccinations Prevent Parvo

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.

my daughters dog is 6 months old has had 4 sets of shots including parvo. as I type this she is fighting for her life at the vet with parvo. She has been sick for 2 days but we never thought of parvo because she had all of her shots. So I guess dogs can get it even if they are vaccinated by a vet.
