We can’t kill parvovirus, instead treatment involves medicines and intensive nursing care to help support your dog while their body fights the infection.
A fluid drip. Your dog will need a drip to replace all the fluids they have lost in their diarrhoea and vomit. Without this, they will become very dehydrated.
Intensive nursing. Your dog will need intensive nursing in a veterinary hospital to help them fight parvovirus. They will also need to be kept away from other dogs to stop parvo spreading.
Antibiotics. Your dog will need antibiotics to protect them from picking up any other nasty infections while their body fights parvovirus.
Other medications. Anti-sickness and stomach ulcer medication may be necessary.
Careful feeding. If your dog isn’t able to eat, liquid food through a stomach tube may be necessary.
