We as a breeder have experience with a cheap treatment of 4 days of Parvovirus that will kill the virus; from the first day you will see the difference. Most vets do not know about this treatment. The cost of the treatment depends on the weight of the dog/puppy. The estimate cost is $30 to $40. If you need an overnight shipping then it will $30 additional.

Canine Parvovirus

Canine parvovirus is a highly contagious virus that can affect all dogs, but unvaccinated dogs and puppies younger than four months old are at the most at risk. Dogs that are ill from canine parvovirus infection are often said to have “parvo.” The virus affects dogs’ gastrointestinal tracts and is spread by direct dog-to-dog contact and contact with contaminated stool, environments, or people. The virus can also contaminate kennel surfaces, food and water bowls, collars and leashes, and the hands and clothing of people who handle infected dogs. It is resistant to heat, cold, humidity, and drying, and can survive in the environment for long periods of time. Even trace amounts of stool containing parvovirus may infect other dogs that come into the infected environment. It can be transmitted from place to place on the hair or feet of dogs or via contaminated cages, shoes, or other objects. (Everything must be disinfected by Clorox; 75% of Clorox and 25% of water. You must leave this for 24 hours then rinse it with water)

When is it Time to See the Vet

If you notice your dog experiencing severe vomiting, loss of appetite, depression or bloody diarrhea, contact your veterinarian immediately. Most deaths from parvovirus occur within 48 to 72 hours following the onset of signs.

How Can Parvovirus Be Treated

Dogs infected with parvovirus need intensive treatment in a veterinary hospital, where they receive antibiotics, drugs to control the vomiting, intravenous fluids and other supportive therapies. Should your dog undergo this treatment, be prepared for considerable expense-the average hospital stay is about 5-7 days.

Please note that treatment is not always successful-so it’s especially important to make sure your dog is vaccinated.

Preventing Parvovirus

The best way to prevent parvovirus is through good hygiene and vaccination. Make sure to get your puppies vaccinated, and that your adult dogs are kept up to date on their parvovirus vaccination. Until a puppy has received its complete series of vaccinations, pet owners should use caution when bringing their pet to places where young puppies or dogs with unknown vaccination histories congregate.
