Hi, I can help you with your question today. I'm worried that Mia needs more intensive care than what they sent you home with.
Dogs with parvovirus can not only be dehydrated, but they can also develop severe infections due to a seriously decreased number of white blood cells.
I recommend taking Mia to a 24 hour facility. She should be hospitalized with an IV catheter, fluids, and IV antibiotics. We can also use a medication called Cerenia to stop the vomiting and it may allow her to start eating small amounts again.
Please let me know if you have any further questions. I am happy to continue until I provide the service that you seek.
