I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Rather than have you wait any longer, please be advised that we're not allowed to prescribe through this venue. Amoxicillin is a prescription drug that can only be prescribed by a vet attending to your dog. Fluid therapy is the hallmark of treating parvo. The more of a pediatric fluid replacer such as Pedialyte (or generics) you can get down your dog, the better her chances of recovery. Her fluid requirement is ~1 ounce of fluid per pound of body weight which is nigh impossible to give orally but every little bit helps. An antibiotic isn't necessarily important to give to dogs suffering from the parvovirus.
