All natural parvo prevention and treatment
Parovirus is a disease that attacks the immune system and intestinal tract of dogs, especially puppies. It was first identified in 1978 and can be transmitted by direct or indirect contact with diarrhea, feces or vomit from a dog that’s infected.
Incubation & Indications
When exposure has taken place, the Parvo virus will enter the lymphatic system and incubate. Once the virus has completed the incubation stage, which can take from three to fifteen days, it will work its way into the intestinal tract and bone marrow. At that time the dog will begin to show symptoms, which can include vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, depression, dehydration, high fever and even sudden death.
Historically, treatment has involved taking your dogs to the vet where they will be kept for up to three days and given anaesthetics and IV drips. What’s more, they will be alone in a strange environment, which can only cause your pets yet further distress. This treatment is not guaranteed to be successful – the only thing you can be certain of is that it will cost you hundreds of dollars in vet’s bills.
However, new, safer and less expensive all-natural solutions can now be obtained, thanks to the hard work and dedicated research of a few companies.
Not only are these products safe (no side-effects have been identified), but you can treat your dog at home in its normal and familiar environment for a small percentage of the cost of the traditional treatment at a vet’s.
Amber Technology has tested two of its solutions, Parvaid and Vibactra Plus, to determine whether the virus could be prevented at the incubation stage (i.e. before the dog begins to show symptoms). The results of the study prove that using Parvaid and Vibactra Plus before the dog becomes symptomatic results in nine out of ten puppies not showing any symptoms at all.
But if they have been vaccinated or wormed within seven days of the onset of Parvo, the numbers are less. If the dog has been exposed to Parvo AND has another illness, such as coccidia, the percentage numbers decline. (Amber Technology does not have an opinion as per the maintenance of vaccinations. Amber Technology asks that you do your own research and make your own determinations as to whether or not you will vaccinate.)
Using Parvaid As A Prevention Technique
On average, it takes three days for the incubation process to occur. Let the puppy expose itself to the virus and allow its system to build its immunities for two days. On the second day, begin giving your puppy Parvaid and Vibactra Plus. This process gives your puppy a better chance of preventing the virus from reaching the intestinal tract (90% of the time, according to studies). The puppy can contract the illness if the exposure is not allowed because the puppy does not have the opportunity to build immunity to the virus.
This process is not a guarantee. As soon as the preventative treatment has been completed the puppy can contract the illness, either straight away or in the future. If this happens, you should begin the full dose recommended for the treatment of Parvo.
There are a few other things to consider:
** Adult dogs can also become infected, as well as puppies.
** If you have more than one dog, there is a high risk that several of them will become infected if the virus is present.
** Parvovirus can be spread via vectors such as mosquitoes, flies, and other animals, making it almost impossible to keep your yard free of the virus.
** Since the Parvovirus multiplies easily and likes to hide in the ground, it can be all around your dog’s environment; therefore you are better off using Parvaid as a Preventative rather than trying to eradicate the virus from your property.
