The truth about canine parvovirus

It is important to start treatment for this disease as soon as possible. Treatment involves administering electrolytes and fluids to help prevent dehydration. Medications will also be given to combat diarrhea and vomiting. As you learned earlier, secondary infections can become a problem with parvovirus, so antibiotics may also be prescribed. Some dogs also require blood transfusions to deal with anemia.

It is important that you understand that there is no cure for canine parvovirus. These treatment protocols will only provide support while the virus runs its course. Without this treatment, your dog will die from dehydration.
