Home parvo treatment, why its better than veterinary treatment
Parvo treatment at home for your dog is a perfectly practical and effective option, compared to the traditional approach of taking your dog to the vet’s, even though you may meet considerable resistance to this idea.
So, let’s look at a few different factors, so that you can decide for yourself.
How Much Will It Cost?
If you have your Parvo dog treated at the vet’s, it will probably cost you anywhere from $500 USD to over $10,000 USD per dog.
Alternatively, if you administer Parvo treatment to your dog in the comfort of your own home, using a home Parvo treatment kit, then you can treat one or maybe more dogs (it depends on their weight) for a lot less than $500 USD, and that’s including Overnight shipping (any other service is simply too slow, so don’t be taken in by bribes of free shipping on some websites – this so-called free shipping can cost your dog his life, as it’s usually US Postal Service Priority Mail, which is a two to four day service in most cases, and Parvo doesn’t wait that long).
Most vets will give dog owners a 50% chance of their dog surviving Parvo, with the lowest we’ve heard being a 33% chance, and the highest an 80% chance.
Alternatively, if you treat your Parvo dog at home using the safe, natural products that are available, then the survival rate is typically 90%.
This is partly because treating your dog at home, yourself, is much less stressful for both your dog and you, and less stress equals an improved chance of your dog surviving this horrific virus.
24 x 7 support, and the unparalleled Parvo vPETS service (constant updates by phone every 4-5 hours during the first two days of full treatment – this does include hourly treatment, throughout the night as well, since Parvo doesn’t take vacations or mount an attack to suit your schedule) if you can find anybody offering it, can also increase your dog’s chance of overcoming Parvo, but you certainly won’t come across many vets offering this. since Parvo doesn’t take a break or mount an attack to suit your schedule) if you can find it, can also increase your dog’s chance of beating Parvo, but you certainly won’t get this from most vets.
If you leave your dog at the vet’s, then it is highly likely that nobody will be in attendance over night, so your dog may well be by himself, or possibly with other sick dogs, for about 12 hours.
However, with home Parvo treatment, then you will be there, with him, all day long.
Remember, dogs, just like many other animals, are extremely sensitive to emotions, and having people around who truly care and love for them will speed their recovery.
Time & Effort
If you have enough disposable income and you accept the relatively low chances of success offered by vets, then you can basically leave your dog there and collect him again, assuming that he survives, in a few days’ time.
If you take the home Parvo treatment route, however, then there will be a few nights without sleep, because one of the four products in the Parvo home treatment kit does need to be given every single hour (and, yes, that does mean both day and night) during the first two days of the four-day course of treatment.
There are many good reasons why it makes sense to treat your dog at home if he has Parvo – the lower cost and increased survival rate are the two most obvious ones.
There is one downside to administering the home Parvo treatment, and that is the time and effort it will take, but this is a necessary part of treating your dog at home, and the rewards, when you see your practically terminally-ill and almost unrecognizable doggie come through this often fatal virus, more than compensate for a few nights without sleep.
You may think that vaccinations are the way to stop your dog getting Parvo, but there are a huge number of problems with administering shots to your dog (which is a whole other story), so the best and arguably only way to be prepared is to make sure you have the necessary products on hand at all times – that way, if your dog should be infected by the Parvo virus, you’ll be able to start treatment at once, even if it’s 5:00am on a Sunday morning, when you’ll almost certainly struggle to find an animal hospital open.
