    i found out about 3 days ago my 15 week old Dobey has Parvo. i called the people that i baught him from said they told me to get his shots but they never did plus i figured they already did sence they are breeders my mom use to breed shelties and she always gave them shots before selling them. Instead of putting him down i have him on treatments so far so good. Man this stuff is nothing to play around with, it just makes me wanna cry and i did besuase in the little bit of time i've had him i fell in love with him. any in put on anything extra i could do to help him along would help me. the vet after 3 days of treatment is letting me give him 2 to 3 table spoons of sugar water and maybe tonight after his next treament he might give me doggy pedalight.

    wow! so very sorry.....parvo is nasty stuff. shots are so very important for a puppy.....and even after the first set they still need protection. I myself do not let my puppy out of my yard untill after the 3rd set.

    a friend of mine treated her pup with parvo....she couldnt afford to keep it at the vet.I recall her having to give the dog fluids like every 30 min around the clock.

    sending my very best wishes to you and your sick puppy

    thanks to both of you. i couldnt afford to keep him at the vets, but i have to take him to the vet twice a day for the shots and fluids that they put under the skin. if i let him stay there it would cost 600 to 1000 where if i take him twice a day its only gonna be 200

    Sorry to hear. Hope he pulls through.

    My lab/husky mix, Cuddles, had parvo as a pup. She made it through, and has been an amazingly healthy dog the rest of her life. She is fifteen now.

    Sadie my husky malamute mix had problems when she was a pup. She got stepped on by her parents and her intestines were all wrangled up. The vet said she probably would not live. We took her in and had the surgery she needed and unbelieveably she made it through. The vet said that her immune system would be weak after the surgery and we needed to watch her. Well guess what...she came down with parvo after she had the parvo shot. We had to take her in to the vet again and she stayed several days...again the vet said it looks like she might not make it. Well she did and is still alive and well today. So do not fret my friend .... our furry friends have a lot of will power to pull through some of the toughest situations. I know yours will pull through as well.

    By the way she is the one in the pic to the left <--------

    Parvo is really bad here in San Antonio, I made sure to keep Karma on lock down til she had all her shots plus one extra.
