Unhappy Parvo

Well on Tuesday I took our litter in to be examined, everyone was great. On Wednesday night I noticed one had a slightly soft stool. Didn't think too much. Thursday he was getting a little worse, called the vet and they recommended keeping him hydrated. Everyone else is doing good, may just be a slight reaction to vaccines. This morning he dies. I called the vet rush everyone in, and we have Parvo. Never in 30 years have we had Parvo. Nothing has changed around here, except I switched vets. I am now thinking, had I not everyone would be fine. I chose to switch over because, they are the best in our area, and our current vet was more into equine/cattle care than small animal. I thought I was doing our babies better by going with a small animal and well
recommendedoffice. I strongly believe that it was contracted in the vets office. And the vet some what agreed. But since it is so highly contagious they can't be held responsible. He was kind enough to not charge and office fee, and not charge me for an experimental drug that has shown to work well. My total was only 163.00 and that covered the testing, a saline drip to administer fluids under the skin, amoxicillian, and anti nausea medicine. I have my hands full with all our dogs being exposed and two more litters, one that is 5 weeks old and one that is 3 weeks old. I never imagined that it would be Parvo, that was the last thing from my mind.

Here's what the plan is Oseltamivir(experimental drug) today and tomorrow, Beef liver water 4 times a day, 1/4 dropper of Amoxicillin twice a day, Metoclpramide 0.3 mL twice a day and saline fluids injected 2-3 times a day. We are also giving all the dogs ( that are not ill) a shot of Duramune Max Pv as precaution, even though all are fully/currently vaccinated, and the pups will now receive the Pv at 6-10-12-14 weeks along with our regular schedule of 5 way at 8-12-16 weeks, per his recommendation. Has anyone had any luck pulling a litter thru? I am so stressed and feeling overwhelmed, I can't stand the thought of these poor babies suffering. I just don't understand why/how this happened.

OMG! What a nightmare! I am so sorry! Several times my Vet has had me wait outside while they disinfect... One of my biggest worries, yet we do need our Vets.. What to do?? Scary!
Wishing you much luck and sending prayers your way!

I am so sorry! I am praying for the rest of them.

That is one of my biggest fears. I ALWAYS bring pee pads with me to the vet to put down on the table so mine don't actually touch the table but even with that I know they could still get infected. I never let them down on the floor or let them use the bathroom outside of the vets.

Don't beat yourself up about it. You made a choice for what was best for them and you could not have predicted or prevented this either way.

My thoughts are with you for everyone else to do fine through this.

I had 2 basset hounds they were pups and dolly got it first
I called the vet and they said they could hook her up with IVs upstairs in there vet office 20% chance making it
So I took the job in doing it
instead them being there so sick and not with me
I did what I could do it was a constant taking care of them and getting up just to push fluids downs with a syringe
I bought human pepo bismol and gave that to her by syringe

sometimes when you look at her you had to look hard just to see if she were breathing
I kept this up I also got infant pedi lite gave that to her
and more pepo bismol
And we had some LA 200 we had to do something and we just took the chance they were really for cattle goats and we used to use it when we had goats gave her a small dosage of it when they were looking better I would take her puppy food blend it in a blender with a little pedi lite and give them a syringe of it.
she got over it ...them Molly got it did the same thing with then poor Dolly got it back
Doctored them both
They both made it
And I think when Dolly got it twiced I think that was what made her smaller then her sister that only got it once
They were healthy after that
But it took alot of work and praying

(Usually the floors would also be contaminated any where the pup with it has been) I really don't remember what I did for that but they did make it and was healthy

Thank you everyone who has offered prayers. We are still hanging in there this evening. I have bleached all the floors and started on the walls. The doc said it wouldn't matter. There is no getting rid of it. He said the only way to get it out of the home would be to get rid of everything and rebuild a completely sterile home and yard and live in a bubble. I understand that there is no way of knowing where it is and with five acres to contend with it is impossible. But know that I am bleaching all the floors( as I do 3-4 times a day anyways) and even going to wipe down the walls with bleach water. I am just still in denial that this is happening. He also said that since our dams are well vet'd it works against us. That Bitches who do not get the recommended care often have better immunities to pass on. I don't know if I believe that, but it does make sense that they would have more natural immunities. I just hope that these babies pull thru. It is never easy losing one, and to lose a whole litter or half at this age is heartwrenching. I have a hard enough time with them leaving home, to have them pass on so horribly is...awful. Not even the worst dog deserves to suffer like this. Thank you all who are thinking of my babies. And any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Hi I don't have any suggestions, but can only offer my sympathy. I know you are doing everything you can, and even if the vet says it will do no good it makes you feel better doing it. I hope and pray that none of your other dogs have the parvo.

I have heard that alot of people have had success with a product called parvaid. This is actually a fear of mine. I'm so sorry - you must be really scared.

Well after a couple hours of sleep, I got up and checked the babies. One is much worse(he was the worst yesterday) two are about the same, and one is much better. He was tearing up the puppy pads and wanted out to play so bad. I feel sorry for him, having to stay locked up. The one guy, I fret is just not going to make it. He is very lifeless. I am getting ready to try and feed him and hydrate everyone. I am going to add some vanilla pedi-sure to routine. I already started in with the bleaching again this morning, I can't handle that smell of Parvo. Oh it is horrible. Thanks again to everyone praying for us, and the kind words.

Oh no! I'm so sorry! Am I understanding correctly that your pups were just vaccinated?
The company that sells the parvaid has this emergency tea... here's the link.
Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe
I have no idea if it works but I hope so!
Also, I have found invaluable information from this yahoo group:
CanineRepro-PuppyCare : Discussing The Practical Issues

I'm really hoping your little ones make it!

I have lost another guy. I don't know if I can make it thru this. My heart is breaking everytime I look at them. One of the boys seems to be feeling okay, at least better than the other two. My little girl is not having much luck keeping anything down, I am giving her food every hour, only about 1/2 ounce and making sure she is not dehydrated. But I really think she is not going to make it. I called the vet and he said not to add anything to the routine, until Tuesday. That it may interact with the drug that he formulated for them. So I am taking his advice. I pray that they make it. I notified everyone on my waiting list, and refunded the deposits that were taken on Tuesday after the vet appointment. I still just feel like this is a bad dream, and I am going to wake up and feel relieved. If any of the other babies or adults come down with this I will need to be placed in a padded room. I can't handle this, it is so horrible to watch them suffer. Am I doing right by them, or should I have them put down. I feel like such a bad mommy, how could I let this happen to them......I know I had no control over it but, it hurts so much to see them suffer and not know if I am going to be able to save them or just drawing out their suffering.
