Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hi, I'm Dr Steve. Has she been to the vet for this and what medicines is she taking now?
The moaning may be due to pain from the irritated from the diarrhea in the intestines. THis is a common event with parvo. Your vet can get pain medicines for you to help make her feel better.
HOw is her appetite?
If her appetite and activity level have slowly improved, then it would seem that she is getting better a little at a time and as long as the stools slowly improve, she doesn't start the vomiting again and she acts better, then she is likely on the road to a recovery.
ok, then continue as your vet has instructed. THe next positive sign would be starting to eat regular food and once this occurs, she should be getting close to being healed.
Parvo has to run its course and the treatment is aimed at keeping the puppy hydrated and replacing teh electrolytes it is losing in the diarrhea. The longer a puppy makes it with parvo, the better the chances of her surviving. The fact that she has had it for 5 days is actually encouraging. I hope this ha shelped.
