Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi there. I am assuming your vet ran the parvo test to confirm the diagnosis. If they did not, I would be sure to ask for this test so you know for sure. There is another viral disease that can mimic these signs but is much less severe.
WE cannot predict how long an animal will take to get over this disease. There are so many variables such as the individuals own immune system and the potency of the disease. In my experience, it has taken much less time for these guys to get over the disease because it does not tend to be as potent as it was in the past. In the past, nearly all puppies that caught the disease would die. Now, even with less intense treatment, they will almost all survive.
You have done great cloroxing all surfaces and you need to continue with the antibiotics and possibly an antiemetic to help with the nausea associated with this disease. Also, antidiarrheals will help decrease the time that they are ill.
