best antibiotic to use for parvo

best antibiotic to use for parvo
Parvo is a virus, not a bacterial disease, so the antibiotic is not used to treat the primary problem, but rather to treat the secondary bacterial invasion of the diseased intestinal tract, after damage from the virus occurs. Penicillin is likely to be adequate, though we often use other drugs intravenously while administering IV fluids and other support in the hospital. Cefazolin, Metronidazole, and Baytril are among the more common antibiotics used for this purpose.
