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.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

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.
