Parvo Home Remedy
Here's my cure for parvo
- carnation powdered milk
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon sugar
and enough water to make a shake
Give every 2 hours according to weight
Only give water in very small amounts every 2 hours to avoid them throwing up. It is VERY important to give this every 2 hours even through the night. I used Pedialyte.
After they are over the parvo, only give boiled chicken that has boiled to the point it falls off the bone.
Give the chicken only for a few days until they have showed much improvement. I have done this several times and it does work. You can email me @ firstname.lastname@example.orgEditor Comment Parvo Home Remedy
I like your recommendations as a way of getting a little liquid and energy into a dog that is suffering from parvo, but calling it a “cure” goes a little too far.
Parvo is caused by a virus that infects rapidly reproducing cells within the body – most often the lining of the gastrointestinal tract, but sometimes also the bone marrow and heart.
The only “cure” for parvo is the body’s own ability to fight off the virus and repair the damage that the infection caused. Some dogs are able to do this with little help from us, others require hospitalization and very aggressive treatment, and some will die no matter what we do.
These differences are attributable to variations in the severity of the infection and the ability of a dog’s immune system to respond effectively.
