Customer Question
Hi Devlin, I've been treating...
Hi Devlin, I've been treating my puppy for parvo at home. He was diagnosed in a clinic but I couldn't afford to keep him there in patient so I have been administering IV fluid and his medication at home. Overnight he has stopped vomiting and diarrhea but seems even more listless and unresponsive. I am giving him pedialyte with a bit of carbo caps mixed in and also trying to give hums few teaspoons of watered down food (from the vet). Is there anymore I can do?

I am sorry to hear your puppy has parvo, it can be a very devastating disease.

What antibiotics is he taking right now?

Any medications for vomiting (cerenia, ondansetron, metoclopramide, etc)?
