Customer Question

My dog was diagnosed with parvo 6 days ago. She's been in ICU care since diagnosis- she's now 36+ hours with no vomiting and 48+ hours with no diarrhea. However, she still won't eat. She's 8 weeks old. Will a parvo puppy starve once they seem to have overcome the hardest symptoms?

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about Dory's situation. Has she shown any interest in drinking for the staff at the ICU? That is good that she's not had any vomiting for 36+ hours. Is she extremely dumpy or is she looking somewhat alert for them?
