Introduction

As dog lovers ourselves (we currently have three, all of which are rescue dogs),
we know how strong the bond between humans and animals can be. And that
means that if your dogs ever become sick in any way whatsoever, never mind
with something as dangerous and scary as Canine Parvovirus, you will naturally
be very worried every bit as worried as if one of your children were sick.

In fact, we have had dogs come down with Parvo and, fortunately, we were lucky
that none of them succumbed to this dreadful virus.

Part of the problem is that people dont know what is wrong with their dog for a
few days sometimes, and Parvo is such a fast-acting virus that it may already be
too late by the time it is diagnosed.

We are also keen proponents of natural health solutions, eschewing the chemical
concoctions produced by the big pharmaceutical companies, who seem to solve
one problem but create a host of others with their so-called remedies.

That is why we were delighted to find that safe, all-natural herbal remedies are
now available not only for humans, but also for dogs and other animals too.
When our own dogs were attacked by the Parvo virus, such herbal formulas were
simply not available, so we had no choice but take the traditional (and expensive)
option of taking them to the vets.

But if this happened again to any of our dogs, we would not hesitate to use these
natural solutions, which is why we now have some on hand at all times, because
you never know when you might need them, and with Parvo especially, time
really is of the essence.

So, we have put this free report together for a number of reasons:

1. To help to educate dog owners about the often deadly Canine Parvovirus, so
that they know what to look out for.
2. To help prepare people for the news you hope youll never hear that your
dog or puppy has Parvo.
3. To help to spread the word about the efficacy and safety of all-natural herbal
solutions for your pets health and the dangers of chemicals, such as those
found in vaccinations, prescription drugs and mass-market cheap commercial
dog food.

This report is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. It is only
intended to help you make better decisions in the caretaking of your doggies,
whether they currently be infected with Parvo or not.

We hope you find this report useful and informative, and we strongly encourage
you to forward it on to anybody you know who has a dog, or is even thinking of
adopting one. Forewarned is forearmed, and the better prepared you are, the
better chance of surviving Parvo your doggie has.

What Is Parvo?

Parvo, or Canine Parvovirus (or CPV for short), is a


viral disease that attacks the lining of the intestinal
tract and immune system of dogs, and especially
puppies, who are more prone to this virus than adult
dogs, although adult dogs can still get Parvo, even if
they are fully vaccinated and up to date with all of
their shots.

It has been known and identifiable since 1978 and can be transmitted by direct or
indirect contact with an infected dog via bodily fluids, including diarrhea, vomit,
urine and even nose-to-nose contact.

The Parvovirus can cause lack of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy,


depression, dehydration, high fever, chills and sudden death.

Parvo is often fatal and strikes suddenly, causing your pet to become extremely
ill, even though your dog may be up and playing just hours beforehand. Without
treatment the animal often dies within a few days.

Dehydration and hypoglycemia (i.e. a drastic drop in blood sugar levels) are the
two main causes of death with the Parvovirus, which is caused by the frequent
diarrhea and vomiting that leads to extreme shock to the dogs system, and by
the severe damage caused to their intestinal tract.

They can also pass away from loss of blood, major organ failure and infection
(caused by the intestinal barrier being broken down, allowing harmful bacteria to
invade the entire body).

Page 9

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


Parvo is most often fatal, especially if untreated, but if an infected puppy does
survive, a complete recovery can occur. A few survivors, however, do remain
somewhat unhealthy and weak for life.

Parvo Strains
Like all viruses, Parvo has mutated and evolved over
the years, and it now on its fifth recognized variant.
This strain is officially called 2c, although it is
sometimes referred to as the F-Strain.

The 2c strain first appeared, so it is thought, in Japan,


and then it made its way across Europe, arriving in USA and the rest of the
world in late 2006.

What makes this strain so lethal is that the symptoms can appear at a greatly
accelerated rate we are seeing dogs having blood in their diarrhea within
hours of the first symptoms appearing, and some dogs die within six hours.

This strain is more deadly than the other strains of Parvo and needs to be
treated more aggressively.

Dogs contracting this strain usually die of

dehydration, hypoglycemia or shock because it typically attacks the intestines


causing severe, bloody diarrhea and vomiting.

Making matters worse, it prevents the absorption of nutrients and fluids. As a


further complication, it can also attack a dogs heart causing congestive heart
failure. This complication can occur months or years after an apparent recovery
from the intestinal form of the disease.

Parvo was always a fast-acting virus, but with the 2c strain, you really do not
have time to waste you must take action immediately!

Page 10

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

Very few dogs survive without intervention of some kind it used to be the case,
with the older 2a and 2b strains, that 80% of dogs that were not treated died
within four or five days, but with the latest 2c strain, more dogs are dying in even
less time.

Read on for more information about how this dreadful virus can so easily and
quickly claim your doggies life, what you can do to try to prevent it, and your
options should the worst happen and your dog does become infected.

Contamination & Transmission

Canine Parvovirus is carried by dogs, as well as other wild animals such as


raccoons and wolves. Adult dogs may be infected, but without showing any
clinical signs - they merely act as carriers.

When dogs have the typical diarrhea that the Parvovirus causes, they shed the
virus as well, through their stools, which is just one way that your yard can get
contaminated.

Infected dogs shed the virus (mainly but not exclusively in their stools) in
massive amounts during the two weeks following exposure (and for up to six
weeks after they recover from the virus), which means there is a tremendous
potential for environmental contamination when an infected dog has been
present.

To put this into perspective, one gram of feces can carry over 90,000,000 (thats
ninety million) viral particles, and yet it can take as few as 1,000 to infect another
dog and make them sick.

Parvo is extremely contagious:

It is passed in the feces, vomit or urine of an infected dog, as well as through


nose-to-nose contact (which may be one reason why outbreaks occur so
easily and quickly in places such as animal shelters, where many dogs are
maybe only separated by wire mesh fencing).
It can be brought into your yard on your tires, on your feet / shoes or clothing
after handling an infected animal (and this is probably why it spread
worldwide so quickly after it first appeared).

Page 12

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


It can be passed from yard to yard by birds or insects carrying the virus on
their feet, or people going "kennel-hopping" carrying the virus on clothing or
shoes.

It is sometimes reported that the Parvo virus is now airborne, but this is not true
in the strict sense of the word airborne, although the distinction is moot. What
is true is that dried particles of infected feces can be blown in the wind, and this
is just as effective a way of spreading the virus.

Some kennel owners ask that their visitors bleach the bottom of their shoes,
wash their hands in bleach water, and put gloves and gowns on before allowing
contact with the puppies. These are excellent precautions to take, and reduce the
risk, but they are not a guarantee that the puppies will be protected from the
Parvovirus.

Many kennel owners who have taken these precautions still end up occasionally
contracting Parvo in their kennel. We have seen this situation many times.

A parvoviral infection can therefore be picked up anywhere, although it is easier


to pick up an infection in an area where an infected dog has been present simply
because of the larger amounts of virus present in a contaminated area.

Whether an individual dog gets infected or not depends primarily on the number
of viral particles that the dog experiences, but also on what kind of immune
experience the dog has had with the virus before (e.g. has it been vaccinated,
has it previously been infected, how much past exposure has it had), and the
individual dog's overall health, which is affected by factors such as diet and
stress, as well as how well it nursed as a puppy.

For some reason, Doberman Pinschers, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, Labrador
Retrievers and Rottweilers, as well as other black and tan breeds (e.g.
Page 13

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


Coonhounds) seem to be particularly prone to Parvo, and seem to succumb to it
faster and with a lower chance of recovery than any other breed.

Conversely, Toy Poodles and Cockers appear to be at a reduced risk of


contracting this disease1.

It is important to remember, however, that any breed can get Parvovirus.

Unlike the distemper virus, the Canine Parvovirus is not enveloped in fat, which
means that it is especially hardy in the environment. In fact, it is so hardy that it
is considered "ubiquitous", and this means that no environment is free from this
virus unless it is regularly disinfected (although even this may not be enough,
given how easy it is to transmit).

Symptoms

Note that:

1. The following symptoms may not appear in the order listed, although you will
usually see the behavioural symptoms before the physical ones.
2. Every dog is different and may begin the symptoms in different stages.
3. Not all dogs develop all of these symptoms.

4.1. Loss Of Appetite


One of the first symptoms you usually see will be that your dog has lost his
appetite and wont eat his food.

This leads to often rapid weight loss and hypoglycemia (i.e. a drop in blood sugar
levels), which can be fatal if not addressed quickly, especially with smaller and/or
younger dogs, who simply cannot afford to lose much body weight.

If you know anything about dogs at all, then youll know that most dogs love their
food, so if they turn their nose up at it for more than a few hours, something is
seriously wrong.

While there may be a number of reasons why dogs lose their appetite, you have
to realise that Parvo is a major cause of this, and you just cannot afford to sit
back and wait to see what happens, or you may find you lose your dog.

Page 15

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


4.2. Lethargy
Your dog will probably become very lethargic and show little to no interest in
playing.

He may find it difficult to move around, and will often just lie there.

You may also find that he is less alert than he used to be (e.g. he may not
respond to a knock at the door), and he may not lift his head or wag his tail when
he sees you.

Lethargy is a sign of weakness. Here is a list of things that can cause a puppy to
become lethargic:

1. Excessive Bleeding - Fluids must be given regularly and frequently to


prevent excessive bleeding. When a dog begins to leak blood out of the
rectum, it is generally a sign of internal bleeding, and at this point, there is not
a lot you can do other than to make your puppy comfortable.
2. Dehydration We recommend the Parvo Emergency Tea.
3. Infection - Parvo will cause secondary infections, which are often what kills
the dog, rather than the Parvovirus itself.
4. Parvo Any of the major organs can be attacked by the Parvo virus,
although its more common with the heart. The Parvo will attack the major
organs in their weakened state, and the heart can become weak if the dog is
over-hydrated, or overexerted. The liver, kidneys and other organs can also
be at risk.
5. Low Blood Sugar This is often caused by a dog not eating, and its a
situation that must be addressed immediately, as this is a very dangerous
condition, especially for really small and/or young dogs.

Page 16

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


4.3. Diarrhea
This is probably the symptom that is most commonly known, but as we said
earlier, its often not the first symptom youll see, which means by the time your
dog has diarrhea, he has probably been sick for a day or more already.

The first thing to note about Parvo diarrhea (as there are, of course, many
reasons why a dog might have diarrhea), is that the smell is foul its probably
the worst odor youll have ever encountered.

The diarrhea often starts with a greenish or yellowish tinge to it, with a jelly-like
consistency, and then it turns into a dark brown color.

In most cases, you will, at some stage during the course of the Parvo, see signs
of blood in the diarrhea.

This may be anywhere from a light spotting to a

massive gush.

Many vets will tell you that you might as well kill
your dog (euthanize is the term they use, of
course), once you see blood in their stools, but
we can confirm that most of the dogs we have
helped treat for Parvo have had blood in their
diarrhea, and it is by no means a sign of
impending death at all we have saved most of
these dogs using the organic herbal products and other natural treatment
protocols that we recommend.

Page 17

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


What we would say, though, is that if the blood appears within the first few hours,
then this is probably a sign that hes infected with the 2c strain of Parvo, and as
we said previously, this is a much more aggressive strain than the older 2a and
2b strains, so you must start treatment immediately.

The blood will often start by being bright red, which is a sign that its coming from
a fresh wound (the Parvo virus is basically shredding your dogs intestines), and
then later on, it will turn into a darker brown color, which is just old blood being
evacuated.

However, you may find other colors in your dogs stools:

a light brown color, like peanut butter, could indicate that your dog has Parvo
in addition to something else (e.g. worms, Coccidia, or some other bacterial
formation such as Campylobacter).

if the dog's stool is gelatin, clear with red, fresh looking blood and has tested
positive for Parvo, the puppy may be experiencing Parvo in addition to
something else (which is very common).

if your puppy is exhibiting a gray looking stool, you may be dealing with some
sort of parasite.

Note that in certain circumstances, your dog may not have any stools during a
Parvo attack:

1. One condition may be an infestation of worms, in which case you must not
worm the puppy using chemical-based dewormers (these are product we
never recommend anyway).
2. Another condition may be caused by the lining of the intestinal tract swelling,
which can occur for various reasons. This condition can become serious: if

Page 18

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


the puppy is straining to pass a stool, this can be hard on the heart, which can
be weakened by the presence of the Parvovirus.
3. Dehydration can also be a cause of no stools.

If your dog does not produce any stools after a 48-hour period, it is possible that
he has a blockage. As this can be life-threatening, you should take your dog to
your veterinarian to have him examined.

4.4. Vomiting
Most dogs with Parvo will start vomiting at some stage.

It often starts with an off-white mucus-type vomit, which almost resembles egg
whites, and then it usually changes to become yellow and frothy.

Excessive vomiting is the hardest symptom to address, which is often because


there are other factors at play. For example, if a dog has been vaccinated or
dewormed within the previous two weeks, or if he already has worms, then the
vomiting may be uncontrollable.

Note too that in rare cases, you will see blood in the vomit, but this is almost
never because of the Parvo its almost always caused by something else, such
as worms or parasites.

If your puppy is vomiting, but has no stools, then this could indicate that he has
both Parvo and worms. If this is the case, you should not deworm him with
chemical-based dewormers (e.g. Panacur), as this will lessen the chances of
any Parvo treatment being effective.

Page 19

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


4.5. Dehydration
Dog with Parvo usually get very dehydrated, not only because they lose their
appetite and tend not to drink much either, but also because of the way the virus
works they lose a lot of fluids through the constant diarrhea and vomiting.

You can check your puppys hydration in two different ways, and we recommend
doing both:

1. Take some of the dog's scruff of their neck between your fingers and gently
pull up and twist. In a well-hydrated dog, the skin will immediately go back
into place once you release it, whereas in a dehydrated animal, the skin will
remain sticking up or only partially go back down very slowly.
2. Check the puppy's gums frequently: if they are pale pink or white, this is an
indication of dehydration.

If your puppy is dehydrated, it is absolutely crucial that you do something about


it immediately, and there are two options available to you:

1. You can take your dog to the veterinarian and have him put on IV fluids.
2. You can give him the Parvo Emergency Tea.

Giving your puppy fluids every hour around the clock is extremely important: the
fluids keep your puppy hydrated and help the infection to drain.

Page 20

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


4.6. Depression
You will usually notice that your dog is depressed, which is caused by the fact
that he is sick and knows it. In this respect, dogs are no different to us humans
we dont like being sick either.

4.7. Fever
Some dogs will develop a fever when they get Parvo, although in our experience,
this affects a relatively small number of dogs.

A normal temperature for dogs is somewhere around 101 and 102.5 degrees
Fahrenheit (which is 38.3 to 39,2 degrees Celsius).

A fever is usually diagnosed as 103 degrees F and above (i.e. 39.4 C), although
it is often not serious until the dogs temperature reaches 104 F (i.e. 40 C).

4.8. Chills
If your dog feels cold, especially around his paws, then this is usually a sign of
hypoglycemia, which is caused by his not eating.

Cold paws are a major warning sign that you must not ignore.

4.9. Over-Hydration
While not a symptom of Parvo per se, over-hydration can be a result of
incorrectly administered home treatment and is therefore something you need to
be aware of.

Page 21

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

And its important to know that over-hydration can be just as dangerous as


dehydration: the Parvovirus is trying to attack the major organs of the body (the
heart being most common), and if an organ is overworked, it becomes weakened
and, consequently, an even more juicy target for the virus.

What often happens is that a puppy will become over-hydrated (often because of
being given too many Sub Q fluids), then have a bowel movement and weaken.
Within a couple of hours, the puppy dies, which can indicate over-exhaustion on
the heart.

Symptoms of over-hydration include:

After giving a large amount of fluids and your puppy is stable, it takes a dive
and falls into a weakened or lethargic state.
If you have been allowing the puppy to drink fluids without monitoring the
intake and your puppy begins vomiting.
Your puppy can decline quickly (within hours).

If you suspect your puppy is over-hydrated, stop giving fluids for a few hours. If
your puppy begins to improve while off fluids, then slowly start the therapy again.

If your puppy is on IV or Sub Q fluids - to avoid


over-hydrating, reduce the IV drip / Sub Q fluids to
half the dose and give only half the amount of the
Parvo Emergency Tea.

Parvo Imitators

There are many other illnesses that can look like Parvo, but here are two of the
most common:

5.1. Canine Coronavirus


Canine Coronavirus (or CCV for short) is the second leading cause of diarrhea
after Parvo. It has been around for decades now, and most adult dogs will have
been exposed to it at some stage in their life.

There are many similarities between CCV and Parvo:

Both affect puppies more than adult dogs.


Both are spread though dog feces.
Both cause your dogs to have diarrhea, and although CCV infections tend to
cause less diarrhea than Parvo, both have the same foul odor.
Both can cause dehydration.

However, there are several differences too:

Coronavirus is easier to kill than Parvovirus because, unlike Parvo, it is


enveloped in a fatty, protective coating, which makes CCV relatively easy to
inactivate using detergents and solvent type disinfectants.
CCV does not usually produce vomiting
CCV infections are generally not associated with high death rates.

Page 23

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


So, if your dog has diarrhea but none of the other classic symptoms of Parvo, it
may be that hes infected with CCV instead, but the only sure way to tell the
difference is through laboratory testing.

Its also worth noting that many dogs will get both CCV and Parvo at the same
time, which makes it even more important to begin treatment immediately, as the
mortality rate in such situations approaches 90% if nothing is done.

5.2. Campylobacter
Campylobacter is a painful bacterial infection and completely different to Parvo. It
is highly contagious and is also known as Dog Show Crud.

It is commonly acquired by eating a bird (e.g. chicken, turkey or wild poultry),


although it can also be spread by flies and mosquitoes that breed around
swampy or stagnant water.

One difference between Parvo and Campylobacter is that dogs with Parvo tend
to be quiet, whereas dogs with Campylobacter often whine a lot.

Page 24

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


You must not over-hydrate your puppy during the fever stage of Campylobacter.
It is also crucial that you get your puppy on the right antibiotic: Penicillin will not
do a thing for this infection, whereas Tetracycline, Cephalexin or Erythromycin
are some of the known antibiotics that are helpful.

6.

Natural Immunity

When puppies are first born, they are totally unable


to make antibodies against any infectious invader.
They would be completely unprotected except that
nature has created a method of protecting them.

Their mother secretes a special milk, called


colostrum, for the first day or two after giving birth. Colostrum contains all the
antibodies that the mother dog has circulating in her own body and in this way;
she gives her own immune experience to her off-spring.

These antibodies

protect her puppies until they wear off sometime during the first four months of
life.

Not all puppies receive the same amount of antibodies, and that's because the
amount of colostrum each puppy gets varies on factors such as the order of its
birth, and how strong its nursing ability is.

Every nine days, the antibody levels possessed by the puppies decrease by half.
When the antibodies drop to a certain level, the puppies no longer have enough
antibodies to protect them, and if they are then exposed to a large enough
number of viral particles, they will get infected.

There is about a week or so during which time the puppy has no antibody
protection left over from its mother, but it is still not yet able to respond to
vaccination (should you choose to adopt this dangerous practice). This period is
where even the most well cared for puppies can get infected.

Page 26

7.

Vaccination

Our position on vaccinations is very simple: we are strongly against them!

Thats right, we dont believe in vaccinating any dog, ever.

We accept that you may have to administer rabies shots, as this is required by
law in all US states, but other than that, we see no reason to inject a load of toxic
chemicals into your dog.

See our Vaccination Resource page later in this

document to find out strategies and recommendations.

There are, according to our research and experience, three main issues with
Parvo shots:

1. They are becoming far less effective against the latest 2c strain, with most
vaccines on the market today not being able to protect your dog. This is why
we are seeing more and more adult dogs, even though they are fully
vaccinated and up-to-date with all of their shots, still getting Parvo, and if
theyre not treated, theyll succumb and die, just like puppies do.
2. Parvo shots can actually give your dog Parvo!

Yes, its true although

theyre meant to protect your dog from this virus, the exact opposite is
happening.

Again, we are seeing many customers whose dogs are

developing full-blown Parvo symptoms within one or two days of being


vaccinated. A former vaccine developer, who wishes to remain anonymous
for obvious reasons, has stated that all vaccines are dangerous and he goes
on to say that, They involve the immune system in a process that tends to
compromise immunity. They can actually cause the disease they are
supposed to prevent. They can cause other diseases than the ones they are
supposed to prevent.

3. Finally, and this doesnt just apply to Parvo shots, but all vaccinations (and, in
fact, all chemicals, whether theyre present in vaccines, dewormers,
commercial dog foods or household cleaners, for example) will, over time,
weaken your dogs immune system. This will not only open him up to getting
all sorts of infections, germs, viruses, etc. more easily, but it will also cause
chronic inflammation, which is now know to be a leading cause of cancer.

Another very dangerous practice is giving Parvo shots to dogs who have been
exposed to the virus but who are not yet showing symptoms.

The vaccine manufacturers actually stipulate that shots should only be given to
healthy dogs, but a dog that has been infected with Parvo is clearly not healthy.

The problem is that none of the vets weve heard about from our thousands of
customers have bothered to test a dog before giving them their vaccinations.

The result?

Your otherwise-healthy dog may be dead in as little as five hours!

If you dont believe us, then read what happened to the fianc of one of our
customers: http://www.ParvoBuster.com/WorstThing

We realize that all of this may go against accepted wisdom, and traditional vets
will disagree with us on this, but you have to accept that the medical profession
doesnt really have a vested interest in finding a cure, or even an effective
protection there is a lot of money to be made in giving regular vaccinations, not
to mention in treating the problems that these chemical cocktails create.

Page 28

If you dont believe us, then read this quote from one of the worlds foremost
experts in canine vaccine reactions, Dr. Jean Dodds:

Recent vaccinations with single or combination


modified live virus (MLV) vaccines are increasingly
recognized contributors to immune-mediated blood
diseases, bone marrow failure, organ dysfunction
and cancer.

Many vets will still recommend annual booster shots, even though the AVMA has
changed their vaccination schedule to once every three years, but even this is
being seen as a compromise solution research shows that most vaccinations
offer protection for at least seven years, and maybe life.

You may like to read an excellent book by Martin Goldstein, DVM, which is called
The Nature Of Animal Healing. Chapters 3 and 4, on diet and vaccinations, are
especially interesting and relevant.

See Section 24.3, Vaccine Articles And Must-Read Sites, for a list of other useful
websites that provide a wealth of information about vaccinations.

Prevention

So, given that we dont recommend vaccinations, what else can you do to protect
your dog?

Well, there are some other precautions you can take to try to prevent your pets,
and other people's, from being infected with Parvo:

1. Don't let your dogs near other animals' waste in your yard.
2. Don't let them eat rodents, as rodents can carry the disease.
3. Keep your dogs away from waste at parks and other public places.
4. In fact, keep your dogs away from public areas as much as you can, including
dog parks even though these places may insist on seeing vaccination
certificates, this does not mean that your dog cant become infected.
5. Try to keep your dogs away from each other's rear ends and noses, as
Parvovirus is extremely contagious.
6. You might want to wash your dog's feet before it gets in your car, so keeping
a supply of liquid soap, a gallon of water, a washcloth, and a plastic bag in
your car may come in handy. Just be certain to remember to bleach the rag
and anything else it touched once you arrive home again.
7. You should pick up after your dogs, whether you think they are infected or
not, at parks and other public places. This is important even if your dog
shows no signs of Parvo (or any other disease), because a healthy dog can
still be a carrier for this virus, and a dog recovering from Parvo will still shed
enough of the virus to infect other dogs for up to six weeks. That means that
the next dog to step in that waste might not be so lucky, and may end up
being infected and then having to fight for its life.

Page 30

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


8. Make sure that your dogs have plenty of fresh water available to them at all
times, because proper hydration is vital to maintaining a healthy immune
system and fighting illness.
9. Dogs that are neutered or spayed are less likely to contract Parvo because
they are less likely to seek contact with other dogs (apart from which, its just
good practice anyway there are already millions of dogs killed every year
because nobody wants them, so why risk adding to this number).
10. Do not feed your dogs mass-market, cheap commercial dog food, which
typically contains an array of unhealthy, sometimes toxic ingredients and
chemicals that will, over time, weaken your dogs immune system and can
lead to chronic illnesses and cancer.

We also give our own dogs a daily dose of herbal tinctures to help keep them
healthy and their immune systems strong. See the After-Care section for more
details.

And finally, please do your research into vaccinations and make your own,
informed choice about them! Do not be bulled into them by your vet without
knowing the risks involved, as they almost certainly wont tell you about the
dangers themselves! Remember, its your dog, and your responsibility.

9.

Incubation

The usual incubation time (i.e. from being infected to showing symptoms and
testing positive) for Parvo is three to seven days, although estimates vary, some
saying it can take up to two weeks to incubate.

When the virus is introduced into the body, through the mouth, it finds its way into
the lymph glands of the animal's throat and incubates.

After a couple of days, so many virus particles have been produced that
significant amounts of it are released into the bloodstream.

Over the next three to four days, the virus seeks out new organs containing the
rapidly dividing cells it needs: the bone marrow and the delicate intestinal cells.

Within the bone marrow, the virus will destroy young immune system cells. By
killing these cells, it knocks out the body's best defense mechanism and
guarantees itself a reign of terror in the gastro-intestinal tract, where its most
devastating effects occur.

All parvoviral infections are characterized by a reduction in the white blood cell
count because of bone marrow infection. Seeing this on a blood test may help
clinch a diagnosis of a parvoviral infection. Also, a veterinarian may choose to
monitor the white blood cell count or even try to artificially raise the white blood
cell count in an infected puppy through treatment.

Because the dogs immune system is compromised, infection can result, which
makes an antibiotic extremely necessary (but, of course, we recommend a herbal
one rather than the traditional chemical-based ones, which come with a ton of
side-effects).

Page 32

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


It is in the gastro-intestinal tract where the most severe damage occurs. The
normal intestine possesses little finger-like protrusions called villi. Having these
tiny fingers greatly increases the surface area available for the absorption of fluid
and nutrients.

To make the surface area available for absorption even greater, the villi possess
microvilli, which are microscopic protrusions. The cells of the villi are relatively
short-lived and are therefore replaced by new cells all of the time. The source of
the new cells is the rapidly dividing area at the foot of the villi called the Crypts of
Lieberkuhn, and it is here where the Parvovirus strikes.

Without new cells coming from the Crypt of Lieberkuhn, the villi become unable
to absorb nutrients, and diarrhea (in large quantities) results, as well as nausea.

The barrier that separates the digestive bacteria from the blood stream breaks
down, so the diarrhea becomes bloody and bacteria can enter the body causing
widespread infection (remember that the virus has also simultaneously destroyed
the ability of the body's natural immune system to respond).

Finally, Parvo can also damage the heart of very young puppies, including
unborn ones. So if your dog is pregnant, those puppies are at risk too, even
before they are born, so you should remove any pregnant dogs from an
environment that you know to be infected.

Page 33

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

10. Duration Of Parvo


Once the incubation period is over and you start to see the various symptoms of
Parvo, the virus typically runs it course, using traditional treatment methods, in
five to seven days.

However, if you choose to administer our recommended herbal products to help


treat the Parvo, then puppies are typically ready to eat on their own (and keep
that food down) within two days.

There are, though, a few factors that may increase the duration of this virus:

If the puppy has recently been vaccinated or dewormed before becoming sick
(usually anywhere from two to four weeks previously), the time frame can be
longer up to one week, depending on the strength of the puppys immune
system.
If a puppy is trying to overcome more than one obstacle (e.g. Parvo and
worms, Parvo and Coccidia), it can take over a week, although if treated
early, the average is four to five days.

Be patient, calm and consistent with your puppy. If you are stressed and upset,
your puppy will feel this too. Try to keep the environment as quiet and relaxed as
you can, so that your puppy feels safe and secure.

A calm and soothing

environment supports their immune system, as much as it can support ours.

Page 34

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

11. Speed Is Of The Essence


The problem with Parvo is that, by the time your dog or puppy exhibits typical
parvoviral symptoms (e.g. not eating, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, fever,
dehydration, and a general lack of playfulness), the clock is already ticking, since
youve already lost anywhere from three to seven days.

Often, your dog might be sick and youve been away from him at work all day so
you wouldnt have known or may have missed some of the initial subtle changes
in his mood. This is the time when the virus is growing and spreading.

Parvo usually takes three to seven days to incubate (but as many as 15) once
your dog is infected, and when it reaches this stage, it acts very fast, so you too
much act fast - you simply do not have time to dilly-dally around wondering what
to do.

And if you do order our home treatment products online, then now is not the time
to skimp on the shipping costs. Yes, using an overnight service from a company
such as FedEx is a bit more expensive but every day that passes without
treatment is another day during which the Parvovirus can take a stronger hold on
your dog, weakening it further and further. Remember, a dogs metabolism is
much faster than a humans so one dog day is like seven human days.

Heres the bottom-line: if you dont have hundreds or thousands of dollars to


spend taking your dog to the vet, then you must treat your dog yourself at home.

These products are very cost-effective since they treat multiple dogs per each
bottle.

Weve spent countless hours researching shipping methods (e.g. the service
areas, the type of services available, costs, projected time of delivery, etc.) and
Page 35

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


analyzing the results of using these different methods, comparing what the
carriers claim with our own experience, and based on all of that work, which was
worth every hour we spent, we decided that we will only offer FedEx Overnight
services,

and

the

closest

international

equivalent,

on

our

www.ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com site, as this site is for people whose dogs


are already sick.

This is because we understand the true nature of what it is youre dealing with: a
blood-thirsty killer that doesnt take prisoners.

Weve already had too many of our customers lose their dogs because they
selected too slow a shipping method, and we really dont want to see this happen
again.

A virus is like any other life form: its mission is to survive at all costs. These new
super strong strains of Parvo make it clear that this virus is learning how to
counteract traditional treatments and is becoming extremely resistant to many of
the standard treatment protocols.

What this means for you is TIME is even more critical! If any of your dogs show
any Parvo symptoms, then by ordering our products using a FedEx Overnight
service, you will be able to start administering treatment within a day or two,
giving your dog an excellent chance of a full recovery.

On the other hand, if you were to order using USPS Priority Mail and then had to
wait two to six days to get the products, your dog would be dying a slow
agonizing death right in front of you. This is hardly the last image you want
forever burned into your memory your dog expired while waiting for products in
the mail when you could have had your products delivered by FedEx the next
day and started his treatments immediately, giving him a fighting chance of a full
recovery.

Page 36

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

So, whatever solution you choose for your dog when they are sick with Parvo, we
implore you to select the fastest shipping method that is available in your location
we really dont want to see any more people lose their dogs because they died
from Parvo before their Parvo Treatment Kit could reach them in time.

And if you get the impression that all this talk of fast shipping is a hobby horse of
ours, youd be right, and we make no apologies for it. Canine Parvovirus is a
vicious killer, and there really is no reason to make your dog suffer any longer
than is necessary.

12. Treatment Options


Like all viruses, there is no cure - all you can do is to try to keep the dog alive by
preventing dehydration and the loss of proteins by giving fluids, electrolytes,
controlling the body temperature, preventing hypoglycemia, giving blood
transfusions when absolutely necessary, and regulating systems in the body
during the course of the disease while giving your sick dog the weapons he
needs to help re-build his immune system and fight the virus himself.

You have four options if your dog has Parvo, and we address the advantages
and disadvantages of each of these on the following pages:

1. Euthanize your dog.


2. Do nothing.
3. Take your dog to the vets (or animal hospital).
4. Treat your dog at home, yourself.

Page 38

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.1. Euthanize Your Dog
This option is basically killing your dog before you give him a chance to get
better, and you will therefore not be surprised to hear that we do not recommend
this option ever.

12.1.1.

Advantages

The only advantage to this option is that it does put your dog out of its misery,
and we do appreciate that it is very difficult to see your beloved pet in pain and in
such a sorry state, and understand why people might wish to consider this
option.

12.1.2.

Disadvantages

The biggest disadvantage of this option is, of course, that you are giving your dog
a zero chance of survival even if he may have made a complete 180
turnaround with the appropriate treatment, you are denying him this opportunity.

Remember too that this is not a zero-cost option your vet will most likely charge
you to put your dog to sleep (our customers have told us that fees from $300
USD to $500 USD are not uncommon, although it may cost less than this, of
course).

On top of that, there may also be costs associated with the disposal of your dog
cremation is often recommended, as a way to kill the virus that will still be alive
in your dogs body.

Page 39

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.1.3.

Other Factors

You need to be aware that many vets will recommend this option if you cant (or
wont) pay their often exorbitant fees, or if there is blood in the diarrhea / stools.

One vet we came across said that 75% of his clients chose to kill their dogs when
they couldnt pay his bills, and yet a large proportion of those dogs may well have
lived if treated using safe, herbal products.

You should also note that blood in the stools is definitely not a sign that your dog
is going to die no matter what you do most of the dogs we have helped treat
(over 4,900 cases at the time of writing) have gone through this bloody diarrhea
phase, and yet we have been able to save the vast majority of them.

You also cant ignore the fact that you will probably feel guilty about your decision
for years to come especially when you find out that you might have saved him
through cost-effective, safe home Parvo treatment.

Page 40

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.2. Do Nothing
This option is a sort of lets see what happens and hope for the best approach,
and, needless to say, we do not recommend this option either.

12.2.1.

Advantages

It is potentially the lowest cost option, as youre effectively not paying for any
treatment at all.

12.2.2.

Disadvantages

First and foremost, you need to know that over 80% of dogs that go untreated will
die within four to five days.

The bad news is that these statistics relate to the older 2a and 2b strains of
Parvo, which are still out there and infecting dogs; the latest 2c strain is even
more aggressive, with some dogs dying in as little as five hours after symptoms
such as diarrhea first appear.

To give you an example, we had a customer in the state of Washington whose


dog showed the very first symptoms on a Sunday morning, and by later that
same afternoon, it was already dead.

Should your dog not make it, which is highly likely, then you will be faced with the
costs and/or effort of disposing of him (in a safe and responsible manner).

12.2.3.

Other Factors

You shouldnt underestimate the emotional trauma of simply sitting there and
doing nothing while your previously healthy dog withers away and dies, in great
pain, before your very eyes.

Page 41

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

You wouldnt do this with your children (we hope), so why would you put your
family pet through it?

Page 42

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.3. Take Your Dog To The Vets
This is, of course, the most popular course of action, because animal owners are
trained to do this, just as most humans first reaction when they get sick is to go
to see a traditionally-trained doctor.

12.3.1.

Advantages

Veterinary care can be the best option if you have the disposable income to pay
their bills, or if you are unable to stay home for several days to take care of your
sick dog.

12.3.2.

Disadvantages

From speaking to our thousands of customers, most vets will quote you
anywhere from $500 USD to over $12,000 USD to treat a dog that has Parvo,
and that cost is for each sick dog where an entire litter is infected (and we see
this happen all too frequently), these costs may be multiplied many times over.

Even a simple Parvo test and a vaccine cost one of our customers $250 (and
although the test came back negative, the dog did actually have Parvo and was
successfully treated at home using safe, chemical-free products and a lot of
TLC).

Secondly, and again based on what our customers are telling us, most vets will
only offer you a 50% chance that your dog will survive. A few vets will go as high
as 80%, with some going as low as 20%, and one vet we know of said that he
had never managed to save a dog that had Parvo.

If you leave your dog at the vets (or animal hospital) overnight, or for several
days, then it will be a very stressful situation: he may be left alone for many hours

Page 43

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


at a time, he may be surrounded by other sick animals, and he will be in a
strange environment with strange people,

All of this stress will increase the time it takes him to recover from the Parvo, if
indeed he does, and it may hasten his death.

It will also be more stressful for you, as youll be constantly worrying about how
hes doing, and you may also be faced with frequent trips to the vets office to
see how he is. Given that youll be worried, with your mind on other things, your
chance of having some form of accident will also be increased as a result.

Many of the vets weve heard about, and the procedures they use, do not appear
to be up-to-date with the Parvo virus:

The vaccines they still insist on using are becoming increasingly


ineffective against the 2c strain.
The Parvo tests they do in the clinic, which use stool samples, can
generate false-negatives in the case of the 2c strain, which is dangerous
as you then think your dog is OK when in fact hes not, and all youre
doing is wasting valuable time. (They can also generate false-positives,
which might cause you to spend a lot of money unnecessarily.)
They will often give Parvo shots / booster shots to dogs that have been
exposed to the virus (i.e. the virus is in their system but theyre not
showing symptoms yet), or even to dogs that do exhibit symptoms, which
is about the worst thing you can do to a dog that has Parvo. All the Parvo
shot does is to send in more troops to join the Parvo army, as well as
weakening, or even eliminating, your puppys already-compromised
immune system. Doing this can kill your dog in a very short amount
of time!

Page 44

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


The treatment protocols they use are still largely based on the older 2a
and 2b strains, which are, in most cases, insufficient to deal with the 2c
strain. Whereas IV fluids and antibiotics used to work in many situations,
these are nowhere near enough now. Many vets may not give your dog
any anti-nausea or anti-vomiting medication (and if they do, it will, of
course, be chemical-based and could, ironically, cause additional
vomiting), and almost none of them address the hypoglycemia that most
Parvo puppies suffer from, and which is, in our experience, a huge killer of
sick dogs.

12.3.3.

Other Factors

Some vets simply refuse to treat dogs that have Parvo (e.g. because it requires a
lot of additional effort, in terms of clean-up, for example, they may need to pay
somebody to stay with the dogs overnight, or because of the risk of
contaminating other dogs that are currently healthy weve had at least one
customer whose dog caught Parvo at the vets).

Some vets are not as caring as you might expect them to be, and can take a very
callous attitude. For example, weve had a customer who took their sick dog to
the vets, and were not told that it had died until two days later.

As stated above, some vets are all too eager to recommend euthanasia, and
because many people trust their vet (as they trust anybody in a position of
assumed authority), they agree, without stopping to ask or find out if there are
other treatment options that are more effective or more affordable.

Page 45

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.4. Treat Your Dog At Home, Yourself
The fourth option, and the one we would always recommend to begin with, is to
administer a set of safe, herbal products that are designed to help treat the Parvo
virus and its accompanying symptoms at home.

There are two different Home Parvo Treatment Kits that we recommend, which
are summarized here:

Fluid Ounces

Note that, by prevention, we mean that when the products are given to dogs
who have been exposed to the Parvo virus but who are not yet showing any
symptoms, the chances of them developing full Parvo symptoms are greatly
reduced.

12.4.1.

Advantages

Most importantly, we typically experience a success rate of 90% or so using


these products (combined with our emergency home remedies), provided that
people follow all of the instructions contained in the ParvoBuster Parvo
Treatment Guide (which is included with all Parvo Treatment Kit purchases) to
the letter.

Page 47

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


Almost as importantly, to many people, is the cost you can treat a dog of any
weight, from a Chihuahua puppy to an adult Italian Mastiff, for $275 USD or less
(and that includes the cost of FedEx Priority Overnight shipping, which is all we
use as anything else is simply too slow). Depending on the size of your dogs,
and your situation, you may even be able to treat multiple dogs for less than
$100 USD.

The products are natural, chemical-free and safe there are no side-effects
when using them.

Because you will be treating your dog at home, both he and you will feel less
stressed, and its been proven that reduced stress does increase the chance of
recovery, and in a faster time too.

12.4.2.

Disadvantages

You will need to administer something to your sick dog every 30 minutes, day
and night, for several days, both before you begin using the herbal products, and
for two to four days once you start the main treatment phase.

Needless to say, this is very tiring, and if you are by yourself, can turn you into a
zombie after several days of this. All we can say is that the rewards of seeing
your sick dog getting better, and knowing that it was you that did it, more than
makes up for the lack of rest after all, you can catch up on your sleep later,
when your dogs recovered.

The required treatment schedule can also be a problem if you are unable to get
time off work.

Page 48

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

12.4.3.

Other Factors

For some (i.e. those who are not already committed to a chemical-free life style),
this option can require a leap of faith.

You may face ridicule from your vet, your family, your friends, etc., but unless
they have actually used the correct set of products with the correct treatment
plan and supporting home remedies and still had an unsuccessful outcome, they
are merely stating opinion and not fact, and you should therefore not be
dissuaded from taking the best course of action for your sick pet.

Remember, this is your dog and you need to do whats best for him, regardless
of what anybody else (including your vet) may say or think.

Page 49

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.5. Treatments We Cannot Recommend
You may find people suggesting or selling the following treatments for Parvo, but
we cannot recommend any of these, for the reasons shown below.

12.5.1.

Parvoguard

Parvoguard had been on the market since 2004, until the company was forcibly
shut down in 2008.

It was manufactured by a company called Selmedica, and their owner, a Perry


Belcher, was arrested on fraud charges. He had also been told by the FDA to
stop making certain claims on some of his many health-related websites, but he
didnt comply, hence the heavy punishment he received.

We actually tried to do some research into this company in early 2007 and we
unearthed some information that was hardly confidence-inspiring. For example,
49 complaints had been raised against them with the Better Business Bureau,
and they had to withdraw at least one of their products owing to unsubstantiated
claims about its efficacy and safety.

We also heard anecdotal evidence that the product did not work, with at least
one retailer stopping selling Parvoguard, switching over to selling Parvaid instead
(which we no longer recommend see below for details).

When it comes to protecting or saving the lives of our own doggies, we would
never trust such a company or product, and we would never ask anybody else to
do something to their own dogs that we wouldnt do to ours.

That is why we recommend the two ParvoBuster Parvo Treatment Kits, and
why we cannot recommend Parvoguard.

Page 50

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.5.2.

Parvaid

Parvaid was first launched in 1997, and for years was the only, and best, product
on the market to treat Parvo at home.

However, since 2007, the Parvo virus has been getting noticeably more
aggressive and harder to treat, and Parvaid by itself is no longer sufficient to deal
with it.

Even the manufacturer, Amber Technology, tells people that they need additional
products these days (e.g. Vibactra Plus, Life Cell Support, Adizone, Pets Pain
Formula), so although Parvaid appears to be a cheap solution (around $45 for a
1oz. bottle), the total cost if you buy all of the recommended products would
actually be closer to $140 (and that doesnt include shipping).

Another concern we have about this product is its safety, and thats because two
of its ingredients, namely, alcohol and garlic, are known to be toxic to dogs (and
other small mammals).

Amber Technology maintains that these two ingredients are safe in the quantities
used, but in our experience, both can prove dangerous.

For example, garlic can make vomiting worse, and our policy is not to do
anything that might make the situation worse. As vomiting is a major problem
with a lot of Parvo dogs (especially those that have been recently vaccinated or
de-wormed), we dont see why you want to risk making this any worse than it
already is.

This article highlights many of the dangers of garlic (including the fact that its
deemed impossible to determine what the safe limit for this ingredient is):

Page 51

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


http://www.petsbynature.com/Garlic-Can-Be-Deadly.html

As for alcohol, this is a much bigger problem.

Pets are not designed to metabolize this substance, and even small amounts can
cause serious issues above and beyond the incredible destructive power of the
Parvovirus.

Alcohol is used in products such as Parvaid because it is claimed it gets the


herbs into the blood stream quicker, but do you really want a toxic substance
getting into your sick dogs blood stream at all?

When your dog has Parvo, hes already doing his best to fight the virus off, but
with a sudden influx of alcohol, hes now going to have to do a detox as well, but
his immune system simply isnt up to this increased workload.

But there is one potentially lethal side-effect of giving your dog alcohol if he has
a pre-existing liver condition.

Now, you may not know your dog has liver

problems, but even if you do, its not clear from the product information that
giving him Parvaid could prove fatal.

Again, why take additional chances when your dog already has a life-threatening
virus to cope with?

There are many references on the Internet regarding the toxic nature of alcohol
when given to dogs and cats, so here are a couple of sites, to get you started:

The lack of clear instructions is also worrying youll find several conflicting sets
of dosage information, both on the manufacturers website and on/with the
product itself. How, therefore, are you meant to know how to use this product
correctly?

Finally, depending on where you buy your Parvaid, you also wont receive any
additional information about how best to perform home treatment, and you may
find that the vendor is out of compliance with Amber Technologys stated
requirements as well as knowing little to nothing about Parvo itself (so youll get
no support).

Need more info to shed light on this issue?

How does Parvaid stack up price wise?

Good news, bad news. Good news, like the Parvo-K review (below), weve done
the number crunching for you. Bad news is, you wont like what you see.

For clarity we will use the following situation: our example dog is an adult 100lb
German shepherd sick with Parvo (one of the at-risk breeds).

Conclusions:

Since March 2007 (or perhaps earlier) Parvaid alone has not been able to
deal with the current more aggressive strains of Parvo

This is why Amber Tech increased the dosage from 62 to 79 (or more)
doses to compensate

Still multiple products are needed to have a chance at beating this virus,
putting the kibosh on the single bottle of Parvaid theory

As documented above, the dosage instructions are unclear, disorganized,


error filled, have missing details, and so forth, leaving it up to you to figure
it out as you go
Page 54

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

The product configuration above is a lot more expensive than people


thought, but anything less will give your dog lower odds

However, another problem is the presence of toxic ingredients, e.g. garlic


and alcohol as previously noted

In our experience, garlic increases vomiting and diarrhea in Parvo dogs


the last thing you need is additional problems uncontrollable vomiting
can cause severe dehydration and other terrible things, this condition can
be fatal

It is well-documented that alcohol, even in small doses can cause all sorts
of complications including death, especially if your pet has a liver or
pancreas condition

These toxic ingredients carry a considerable amount of risk, so is it worth


it?

Since their answer to a stronger Parvovirus is to increase the overall


dosage amount, your dog is therefore ingesting even more of these
ingredients which further increases the chance of additional problems

If you look at this from a money stand point, the minimum Parvaid kit will
cost you $132.77 before shipping and will only treat a maximum of 6 dogs
provided they each weigh under 3lbs or a single dog that weighs less than
20lbs

This is not cost-effective at all, you have risky ingredients that at a


minimum will cause extra vomiting or worse, the documentation is substandard by a long way, if other dogs in the house contract the virus
(which is very likely), you will have to order additional bottles and pay for
more shipping charges and waste your animals precious time waiting for
extra products to be delivered

Page 55

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

We therefore have to strongly REJECT the Parvaid Parvo


Treatment option as there are just too many problems that you
wont be able to overcome and really why should you?

12.5.3.

Parvo-K

Parvo-K is a homeopathic formula that claims to prevent and treat Parvo by the
use of nosodes. (Nosodes are made up diseased tissue - in this case Parvoinfected tissue - that is modified in some way to be used to treat sick Parvo dogs.
The idea seems to be: introduce this decaying matter into the animal and the cell
memories and immune system will fight it off.)

Apart from failing to be convinced by homeopathic remedies, the main problem


with this product is the lack of instructions.

The product comes in granule form (even though it may be labeled as tablets),
and you have to give a pinch of granules, but the obvious question is, how
much is a pinch?

We also found too many reviews of this product, saying it didnt work, for us to be
able to recommend it.

If you are still not convinced, then perhaps this following will help clarify.

How does Parvo-K stack up cost-wise?

For clarity we will use the following situation: a large dog, an adult 100lb German
shepherd sick with Parvo (one of the at-risk breeds).

Real bad news as a single bottle is not enough to treat a single dog not even a
tiny one under 3lbs. Whats up with that?

Conclusions:

This is expensive for a single dog

What happens if multiple dogs get Parvo, hmm looks like a sizeable bill to
come

Apparently the highly recommended support products are not just optional
but needed, presumably to increase the chances of a successful outcome

Very restrictive as youre advised to get help from your vet which will
certainly add considerably to your overall costs

Crazy dosage instructions that are confusing and you must do a fair bit of
math to work out exactly what amounts are required

Easy to overdose and under dose by using non-standard measurements

Dubious ingredients

Page 57

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

This product has apparently been around for years, yet they have never
included essential details on the number of bottles to treat each size of
dog this is Parvo Treatment 101 come on

There is just no way to take them seriously; it all seems like a strategy to
sell lots of extra bottles thats it if your dog makes it or not, just sell
more bottles

This business model does not work for us period.

Overall: NOT Recommended

How does ParvoBuster stack up price wise?

For clarity we will use the following situation: our example dog is an adult 100lb
German Shepherd sick with Parvo (same as with the other examples).

You have two options:

Option 1 Full ParvoBuster Kit 8oz

Option 2 Small ParvoBuster Kit 2oz

Approx. $200 including FedEx


Overnight

Approx. $100 including FedEx


Overnight

When to select this option:


This contains de-toxing herbs
This is great for vaccinated dogs
This is great for dogs with
worms
This is great for de-wormed
dogs
This is great for weak dogs
This kit can treat up to 50 dogs
This kit can treat dogs up to
300lbs
Cost/oz: $15.63

When to select this option:


If no detoxing is needed
If your dog doesnt have worms
If you dog hasnt been
vaccinated
If your dog hasnt been dewormed
If your dog is not generally sickly
This kit can treat up to 25 dogs
This kit can treat a dog up to
300lbs
Cost/oz: $22.48

Page 58

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

As you can see, there are no hidden details, no number crunching required, no
overly complicated things to deal with, just straight true facts.

Both kits will provide you with excellent value for the dollar spent. Finally a single
product that will treat any size of dogs, up to 300 pounders; both Parvo-K and
Parvaid do not even come close on this important issue.

Now you can afford to treat all of your dogs without breaking the bank.

Conclusions:

Either ParvoBuster Kit presents a much better value for each dollar you
spend
o A single kit can treat 25-50 dogs (depending on the kit size and the
weight of your dogs)
o Either kit will treat dogs up to 300lbs
o Indeed with Parvo-K a single bottle CANNOT even treat one dog
o A single bottle of Parvaid could treat up to 6 dogs as long as ALL of
them weigh 3lbs or less
o The maximum size of one 20lb dog is the most you can do with a
1oz bottle of Parvaid

ParvoBuster documentation is understandable, clearly written,


comprehensive including troubleshooting special scenarios, accurate, and
current to reflect the dynamics of Parvo

ParvoBuster kits DO NOT contain any toxic ingredients nor will you find
any dubious ingredients that could exacerbate Parvo symptoms or create
issues that could be life threatening

12.5.4.

Tamiflu

There has been a lot of talk about giving Tamiflu to dogs that have Parvo.

Tamiflu is the brand name of a drug called Oseltamivir that was developed for
use against the human influenza virus.

To date, UC Davis reports that there have been no studies conducted to prove
the effectiveness of this drug against Parvo, and they therefore can not
recommend its use.

In fact, there are concerns that it may even lead to the development of more
resistant strains of Parvo or, even worse, the influenza virus, if used extensively.

The most common side-effects of this drug are diarrhea, nausea, stomach pain
and vomiting (i.e. many of the symptoms of Parvo!), but there are a wide range of
more serious side-effects that are found.

We cannot recommend this product because we firmly believe in chemical-free


remedies, and this drug was designed for humans - even the FDA has not
approved this drug for use on pets.

For more information about Tamiflu, please check out this page, especially the
section titled The Dangers Of Tamiflu:

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/01/31/recommendedtamiflu-has-flawed-results.aspx?e_cid=20120125_DNL_artTest_C4

Page 64

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.5.5.

Raw Eggs

Some people swear by raw eggs, but we would strongly urge you not to try this
so-called remedy.

You must be aware by now that humans who are at risk (e.g. the very young,
pregnant women, the elderly and the infirm) have been advised not to eat raw
eggs (or even undercooked ones) for some time now, because of the risk of food
poisoning from bacteria such as salmonella and campylobacter.

So, why would you give a dog that has one of the severest, life-threatening
canine viruses known to man, that is shredding his intestines, something that
may introduce yet more harmful bacteria and make his situation even worse?

There is absolutely nothing in raw eggs that will do your Parvo puppy any good at
all, and it is highly likely it will do the exact opposite.

Page 65

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.5.6.

Poultry Products

Many people, vets included, will recommend giving your sick dog chicken broth,
for example, but once again, we cannot agree with this, for the same reasons we
dont tell people to give their dogs raw eggs.

No matter what the source of the poultry products (e.g. chicken, turkey, goose),
whether it be organic or not, and no matter how its prepared and/or cooked (e.g.
broth, baby food, raw, grilled, roast, fried), there is a risk of harmful bacteria, such
as salmonella and campylobacter.

I (Mark) lost my mother to campylobacter back in 1998, and so I am, perhaps,


more wary of these bacteria than most, but even so, you dont want to do
anything that might make your sick dog even sicker.

Its already a hard enough struggle for him to overcome Parvo, even if you are
using the safe, herbal products we recommend with all of the accompanying
home remedies, especially if hes recently been vaccinated or dewormed, so why
take a chance on adding to his problems?

12.5.7.

Prescription Antibiotics

We are against chemicals in any form, but there are three main issues with using
these drugs on dogs that have Parvo.

Firstly, Parvo is a virus, so an antibiotic will have no effect on it at all. Antibiotics


are administered, however, because dogs with Parvo often suffer additional
infections, which are usually caused by the virus breaching the intestinal tract
and allowing bacteria to enter the blood stream.

Page 66

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


The problem is, vets are basically guessing which antibiotic to use, as they have
no idea which one will be required.

Some vets will prescribe broad-range

antibiotics such as penicillin or amoxicillin, but these drugs have been so widely
used over the years that many bacteria are becoming resistant to them.

Secondly, remember that antibiotics will take out both the good and bad bacteria
in the intestinal tract. While you obviously want to get rid of the bad bacteria, the
good bacteria are essential for the health of the intestinal tract.

The third problem is that many of the antibiotics that vets may prescribe as part
of their Parvo treatment protocol can create side-effects that are as bad as, or
worse, than the Parvo symptoms.

One such drug is Baytril (a brand name for Enrofloxacin, which is a


fluoroquinolone antibiotic).

Enrofloxacin (and tetracycline antibiotics) should not be given to growing pets


unless absolutely necessary due to the potential for problems with absorption of
the medications into bone and/or teeth, causing defects.

Permanent blindness and vision loss have been reported with fluoroquinolones,
including enrofloxacin. Enrofloxacin was banned for poultry use in 2005.

Another particularly nasty chemical antibiotic is Metronidazole, where common


adverse drug reactions associated with systemic metronidazole therapy include:
nausea, diarrhea, and/or metallic taste in the mouth. Intravenous administration
is commonly associated with thrombophlebitis. Infrequent adverse effects
include: hypersensitivity reactions (rash, itch, flushing, fever), headache,
dizziness, vomiting, glossitis, stomatitis, dark urine, and/or paraesthesia.

Page 67

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


High doses and/or long-term systemic treatment with metronidazole is associated
with the development of black hairy tongue, leukopenia, neutropenia, increased
risk of peripheral neuropathy and/or CNS toxicity.

Metronidazole is listed by both the US National Toxicology Program (NTP) and


the WHO International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as reasonably
anticipated to be a human carcinogen.

Because metronidazole is an important drug in treatment of human pathogens,


including C. difficile, metronidazole is banned in the EU and the USA for
veterinary use in the feed of animals and is banned for use in any food animals in
the USA. In other words, if they dont want this drug entering the human food
chain, why would you think its safe to inject into your pet?

It is strongly recommended that you do not touch or inhale this drug!

12.5.8.

Tylenol

You must NEVER give a dog Tylenol (or Advil or Motrin), as this can prove fatal!

If you absolutely must give a dog any type of human medication for pain or fever
(which we dont recommend), then the only safe product is baby aspirin.
Suggested dosage is 80mg for every 16lbs of body weight but this is anecdotal
(i.e. it is not based on our own experience as we do not recommend using this
drug).

Page 68

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


12.5.9.

Pedialyte

Although many people, including vets, recommend Pedialyte as a hydration


therapy to replace lost electrolyte fluids, our experience has shown that this
sugary liquid can actually induce additional vomiting.

Several of our customers have confirmed identical reactions (i.e. vomiting) when
theyve given their children this product which is surprising, given that the
product is designed for use with children.

We therefore only recommend the use of Oatmeal Water (see Section 13.1,
below) for rehydrating sick dogs now.

12.5.10.

Gatorade

Gatorade is also recommended for dogs with Parvo by some people, but like
Pedialyte, it is far too sugary and may cause more vomiting and/or diarrhea.

Stick to the Oatmeal Water and your dog will be much better off.

12.5.11.

Rice

Many people, including vets, will recommend giving dogs that have Parvo rice,
and while this is well-known for helping with diarrhea, the problem is that, in
some cases, rice can cause a blockage, and that can prove fatal.

Its important that, during the main course of the Parvo virus, you do not try to
force any type of food down your dog, and when he does become ready for food
again, you stick to a bland and easy-to-digest diet (which does not include rice).

Page 69

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

13. Emergency Remedies


One of the main dangers when your dog has Parvo is dehydration, which is
caused by a number of factors, such as not eating, not drinking, diarrhea and
vomiting.

The presence of worms and parasites can also contribute to this

condition.

While vets typically use IV fluids to counter this threat (or they may send you
home with fluids to administer subcutaneously), there is a perfectly safe and
cost-effective way of re-hydrating your sick dog at home.

You will find many versions of a Parvo Tea on the Internet, but you need to be
careful many of them still include ingredients such as Pedialyte and Garlic,
which we have already shown, earlier in this report, to be potentially dangerous.

Our own Parvo Emergency Tea recipe, shown below, has been refined over the
years to remove any dangerous ingredients, and to include additional ones that
will help calm down vomiting and provide antibacterial support.

Note that this Parvo Emergency Tea recipe will


NOT treat the Parvo virus itself.

It is only

designed to sustain sick dogs until full treatment


can begin, or to provide support to that treatment
once it has started.

When treating your dog at home, it is crucial that you monitor your dogs fluid
intake (and output): although dehydration is a known risk with Parvo, it is equally
dangerous to overhydrate your dog too.

Page 70

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


Overhydration can lead to more vomiting (which you need to minimize), as well
as more serious issues such as seizures/spasms, and heart strain, which can be
fatal.
There are two home remedies that youll need.

Firstly, you will need to make some Oatmeal Water. This is an excellent way of
replenishing the electrolytes that are lost through all that vomiting and diarrhea,
and is much safer than using products such as Pedialyte or Gatorade.

Secondly, you will use the Oatmeal Water as the base for the Parvo Emergency
Tea.

Note: for people who purchase one of our Parvo


Treatment Kits, the included Parvo Treatment
Guide details additional home remedies, to

13.1. Oatmeal Water (An Electrolyte Substitute)
Use this in place of Pedialyte (or Gatorade, neither of which we recommend) or
electrolyte fluid to help maintain sugar levels.

13.1.1.

Ingredients

1/2 gallon of water


1/2 cup oats
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup organic maple syrup (or regular maple syrup or pancake syrup if that
is all you can find)

13.1.2.

Recipe

To make the Oatmeal Water:


Boil the water.
Add the oatmeal, salt and pancake syrup.
Give it a good stir to mix it all up.
Take it off the heat.
Let it sit for 20 minutes.
Strain off the oatmeal (but dont throw it away keep it in the refrigerator for
later, as this will be a good food to give your dog once he starts to eat again).

13.2. Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe
If your dog or puppy already has, or is showing signs of, Parvo, and you're
waiting for your Parvo Treatment Kit to arrive, then you should definitely make
this Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe.

Warning: Do not use this recipe with other


treatments outside of our other products if their
ingredients are unknown. Doing so could be fatal
to your dog. Always check with a knowledgeable
individual before combining treatments.

13.2.1.

Ingredients

The following ingredients can be found in most major supermarkets with


pharmacies:
2 cups of Oatmeal Water (electrolyte fluid)
2 tea bags of herbal Peppermint with Spearmint tea (a good source is
Bigelow's Mint Medley or Celestial Seasonings Mint Magic). If the mixture is
not available, find peppermint and spearmint teas separately and use 1 tea
bag of each. If only one is available (e.g. Peppermint) use 2 tea bags. DO
NOT GET TEA THAT CONTAINS CAFFEINE.
2 teabags of chamomile tea (a good source is Bigelow's Cozy Chamomile or
Celestial Seasonings' Chamomile). DO NOT GET TEA THAT CONTAINS
CAFFEINE.

Page 73

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


1 teaspoon of organic maple syrup (or regular maple syrup or pancake syrup
if that is all you can find)
2 capsules of Echinacea. (This can usually be found in the vitamin section
near the pharmacy.)
Italian Seasoning. Our recommended product, which is made by McCormick,
contains Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Rosemary, Sage, Savory and Thyme, but
if you can't locate this exact brand, the ingredients you should try to get are
Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme. (This can usually be found in
the cooking / spice section.)
250mg of ginger. This would be better in the veggie-cap format, from the
vitamin section of the store, but if necessary, you can buy ground ginger from
the cooking / spice section, in which case you should just use a sprinkle or
two.

Note:

You may find other people providing a Parvo Emergency Tea recipe who tell you
to include garlic as well. We recommend that you leave this ingredient out, as
our research shows that there are a number of dogs who experience increased
vomiting and/or diarrhea when the garlic is included, and this is clearly not
desirable when your dog has Parvo.

We also recommend not making this tea recipe with Pedialyte, as weve found
that this too can cause additional vomiting.

13.2.2.

Recipe

1. Heat 2 cups of Oatmeal Water until it is hot, but DO NOT BOIL IT.
2. Add 2 tea bags of mint tea, 2 tea bags of chamomile tea, 1 teaspoon of
pancake or maple syrup, empty 2 capsules of Echinacea, 6 sprinkles of Italian

Page 74

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


Seasoning (or one sprinkle of each of the individual herbs), and 250mg of
Ginger (or a couple of sprinkles of ground ginger).
3. Stir it well.
4. Let it cool for 20 minutes.
5. Remove any non-liquid ingredients (e.g. the tea bags, and any bits of herbs
that didnt dissolve).

13.2.3.

Note: If you purchase a Parvo Treatment Kit from
us, you will find a Parvo Emergency Tea recipe in
the Parvo Treatment Guide that accompanies
your purchase.

Although the recipe is the same as the one shown


here, the dosage instructions are different
(because additional home remedies are included) so please make sure that
you use the schedule shown in the Parvo Treatment Guide.

The tea is best if given warm. You can either run the oral syringe under warm
tap water, or you can also put the recommended dose of tea in a small glass and
place it in a larger bowl containing hot water and allow the tea to warm up. DO
NOT MICROWAVE THE TEA.

Caution: Over-hydrating can be put a strain on


your dog's heart, so if your puppy is on IV or Sub
Q fluid, reduce the IV drip / Sub Q fluid to half the
dose and give only half the amount of tea.

13.3. Vitamin C Support
Vitamin C is eliminated from the body within two hours of ingestion, with the
exception of some highly expensive Vitamin C that stays in the body for as long
as nine hours.

During the worst of the illness, give Vitamin C at least three to four times a day
(according to Dr Pitcairn, D.V.M., Ph.D., it can be given up to every two hours).

Dr. Wendell Belfield's book, "How to Have a Healthier Dog", advises Vitamin C
"maintenance dose" for dogs suggested use for Vitamin C is as follows:

Animal Weight

Vitamin C

Small

500 - 1,500 mg / day

Medium

1,500 - 3,000 mg / day

Large

3,000 - 6,000 mg / day

Giant

6,000 -7,500 mg / day

14. Immediate Post-Parvo Recovery


Once your puppy or dog is on the mend after a Parvo infection, you will need to
be careful about what you feed him.

Keep in mind that the intestinal tract is raw, because the Parvovirus has eaten
away at the lining and caused bleeding.

You should therefore start your puppy on a diet of bland food:

Oatmeal (which you should have left over from making the Oatmeal Water).
Baby food (include some type of meat such as ham or beef). Due to the rise
in infections (e.g. Campylobacter) that is being caused by poultry, we
recommend not giving your dog any form of chicken, turkey or other poultrybased products (including eggs) until the puppy has recovered.
Chef Boyardee products such as Beefaroni or Mini Ravioli.
A hamburger, broken into small crumbs and mixed in with some oatmeal.

You will want to keep your puppy on a bland diet for at least one week. Do not
overfeed your recovering puppy - small meals spaced throughout the day are
better than one or two large meals. Overeating can cause a relapse within the
first 48 hours of recovery.

Do not try to feed him regular dog food as this will be too harsh for his digestive
tract to deal with until it is fully healed.

15. After-Care
Once your sick pet has recovered from the virus, there are a few things we
strongly recommend that you do to ensure they stay healthy.

15.1. Vaccinations
As we say in the chapter on vaccinations, we do NOT recommend vaccinating
your dog.

If they have survived Parvo, then they will remain immune to whatever strain they
were infected with, so any vaccination would be pointless.

Some medical professionals say that dogs cant get Parvo more than once, but
that is not entirely true weve had a few customers whose dogs did get Parvo
twice. These dogs got an older strain of Parvo (probably 2a or 2b), and then,
years later, got the 2c strain.

Remember, Parvo is a virus, and like all viruses, it mutates and evolves (i.e. just
like the common cold and flu), so a dog that has had an older strain of Parvo
may not be fully immune to any new strain it will depend on how different it is
(and how healthy the dog is, of course).

Also, bear in mind that if a new strain does emerge in the future, as is almost
certainly going to be the case, then the vaccines currently on the market wont
cope with it anyway (which is what we saw with the 2c strain of Parvo).

The best way to be prepared is to have a Parvo Treatment Kit on hand at all
times, and then, should Parvo strike, youll be able to start treatment
immediately, which is always the best course of action.

15.2. Dog Food
Most commercial dog food is full of toxic chemicals that can cause your dog no
end of health issues.

Many dog foods also use corn, soy or wheat as their main ingredient. All of
these products are hard for dogs to digest and/or are known allergens. You
especially need to be careful of dog food made using these ingredients when the
ingredients come from the USA, as most of them will be genetically-modified,
which introduces a whole new set of health problems (for pets and for us
humans). Check out this web page for more information on the dangers of GM
foods:

http://search.mercola.com/search/Pages/results.aspx?k=dangers%20of%20gm%
20foods

These commercial dog foods are usually full of nutritionless fillers that are only
present to bulk up the food. The net effect of this is that, while this dog food may
appear cheaper than premium brands, your dog will need to eat more of it to get
the nutrients he requires, so it wont be as cost-effective as you first thought.

The only dog food we recommend, and the one we use for our own dogs, is
Triumph, in the Lamb & Rice flavour.

You can read much more about this dog food, including the ingredients and how
its made, on one of our other websites:

http://BestDryDogFood.net/

Also be sure to watch the video on the home page we put together that shows
just what goes into most dog foods.

Page 80

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

15.2.1.

Cat Food

If you have cats, then the same type of issues exist with most commercial cat
food.

We therefore recommend you check out Triumph Cat Food, which is what we
would use if we had cats instead of dogs: http://BestDryDogFood.net/Cats

15.3. Chemicals
We actually recommend keeping your dogs away from all chemicals, regardless
of whether theyre contained in vaccinations, dewormers, commercial dog food,
household cleaning products (e.g. bleach) or garden products (e.g. weed killers).

You should therefore always seek out chemical-free products, the best dog food
you can find, and be vigilant about the use of anything that might cause him
harm.

The problem is that chemicals will weaken your dogs immune system over time,
and this can lead to a range of other, potentially more serious issues, including a
greater chance of catching all sorts of other illnesses, including chronic
conditions such as inflammation, which will lead to the obvious problems such as
arthritis, but also to cancer.

Youll find a wide range of safe, chemical-free household and personal products
here:

http://BeingGreen.org/

Page 81

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


15.4. Daily Maintenance Doses
We give our own dogs one dose of each of the products in the ParvoBuster
Viral Smack-Down Kit every single day, as part of a maintenance dosage to keep
them free from germs, bacteria, etc. and to keep their immune systems topped
up.

We live in the worst state for Parvo, and yet our dogs stay healthy all of the time.

Now, if you want to make the products last longer, you can alternate them, by
giving them one product one day, the other product the next, and so on.

Page 82

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

16. Relapses After Parvo


A relapse is not unusual for dogs that have been infected with Parvo.

Generally speaking, a relapse is when a dog begins to show signs of


improvement (e.g. he's a little playful and may even start eating) then suddenly
gets very ill again. The improvement and decline are significant, and it is often
more difficult to pull a dog out of a relapse than it is from the initial Parvovirus.

If you suspect your dog has had a relapse, you should begin treating as you
would for the initial infection, but be sure you are consistent with your treatment.

However, what looks like a Parvo relapse (e.g. everything is going well for the
first two days or so, and then all of a sudden, the vomiting becomes
uncontrollable and you cant keep your dog adequately hydrated) can sometimes
actually be a sign that your dog has something else - usually Campylobacter.
See the section earlier in this book for more information about this nasty bacterial
infection.

Page 83

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

17. Be Prepared!
Most households have some form of medicine cabinet that contains a range of
products that you might need to cover a variety of emergencies or ailments.
These might include Aspirins, Band-Aids, antacids and anti-diarrhea tablets, to
name but a few items.

However, we suspect that very few pet owners have a similar medicine cabinet
for their animals.

We strongly recommend that you create one, because you never know when
you might need something at short notice. Find out what is in our Doggie-FirstAid Cabinet.

Dont forget, a dogs metabolism is much faster than a humans, which is why
people say that one dog year is equivalent (on average) to seven human years.
(This is an approximation, but its close enough to be a workable assumption.)

That also means that when your dog has Parvo, one days suffering for the dog is
like a full weeks pain for a child. You wouldnt sit by and watch your child suffer
needlessly, so why should your dog be treated any less compassionately?

So, we propose that your emergency pet medicine cabinet contains the following
products, as a bare minimum:

A ParvoBuster Viral Smack-Down Kit, because as weve said already, this is


a potentially lethal virus that acts very quickly once it takes hold, and you
really dont want to be waiting for an order to arrive in the mail as precious
days elapse; this same kit can be used if your dog is exposed to the virus but

Page 84

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


before symptoms appear, in which case your dog will not develop full Parvo
(in most cases)
MaxoTox, which is a really great and natural detox product a detox is
recommended for all pets at least once, and preferably twice, per year.
TripleSure, which is a highly-effective natural flea and tick repellent and killer.

Wellements Gripe Water (or any other natural, unflavoured gripe water) to
help with upset stomachs
Hot water bottle (you may need a way to provide some moist heat, as heating
pads, which are dry heat, are not recommended)
Feeding syringes (i.e. without needles), using the table on the following page
as a guide to the right size, but note that if you cant find a syringe thats large
enough for your dog(s), you may need to administer consecutive smaller
doses (e.g. if you need a 60cc syringe, but the largest you can find is a 30cc
one, then youll need to administer two 30cc doses one after the other). Also,
you should never use a turkey baster.

18. Decontamination
Indoors, the Canine Parvovirus loses its infectivity within one month; therefore it
should be safe to introduce a new puppy indoors one month after the active
infection has ended.

Outdoors, the virus can survive freezing temperatures, so if the outdoors is


contaminated and is frozen, you must wait for it to thaw out before safely
introducing a new puppy.

Shaded areas should be considered contaminated for nine months, while areas
that are exposed to good levels of sunlight should be considered contaminated
for five months. However, it has been known to survive for over a year, and
some experts claim the virus can live for up to 20 years, so be careful!

Of course, this assumes that no other decontamination steps, over and above
simply waiting, have been taken.

Finally, please bear in mind that your puppy will continue to shed the virus for six
weeks, even after he or she has recovered.

You should therefore consider

quarantining your home and yourself from other puppies for a minimum of six
weeks, and then do a thorough cleaning.

This also applies to breeders, who should not let the puppies go to their new
homes for at least six weeks after recovering from the Parvo.

Page 87

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

19. Disinfection
Despite the introduction of new cleaners with all sorts of claims, the Parvovirus
remains almost impossible to completely remove from an environment. The goal
of decontamination is therefore to reduce the number of viral particles to an
acceptable level.

The best and most effective disinfectant against most viruses (including the
Parvovirus) is bleach (boiling water will not kill it). One part of bleach should be
mixed with 30 parts of water and should then be applied to bowls, floors,
surfaces, toys, bedding, and anything contaminated that is colour-fast or for
which colour changes are not important. Bleach completely kills the Parvovirus.

However, we must point out that bleach is a harsh chemical, even when diluted,
and it is not something you want your dogs to ingest.

You can use products such as Ken-Care, KennelSol or Parv-O-Way for cleaning,
but you should still use the bleach solution to kill the virus as such products are
not consistently proven to kill the virus, in spite of the manufacturers claims.
This is because Parvo is an unenveloped virus (i.e. there is no surrounding
layer of fat), which makes it a lot harder to kill.

Once youve safely bleached whatever you can, you should leave it for 30 60
minutes, and then you must rinse it off, preferably using a steam cleaner. These
are the only models rated to kill Parvo!

1. Vapor Steam Cleaners - Ladybug XL 2300 (Commercial Grade) - With


TANCS - Supreme Package
2. Ladybug Tekno 2350 TANCS Steam Cleaner

Page 88

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


If dogs walk in this bleach residue, it can both soak into their bodies through their
paws, or they can ingest it by licking their paws. Either way, you really dont want
such a toxic chemical entering your dogs body.

However, we have updated and added a new NO-Bleach method for effective
Parvo Disinfection. Please see section 24.3.

Disinfection becomes a problem for surfaces you can't bleach, such as carpets,
sofas and lawns.

For carpets, use a safe cleaner mentioned above and a

thorough steam clean will certainly help, and you can either do this yourself or
you can hire a professional to do it for you.

Since carpets are mainly indoors, you may be best simply waiting at least one
month for the virus to die off before allowing any puppies to access the area.

Outdoors, if good drainage is available, a thorough watering down of the entire


area may dilute any virus present so that the number of viral particles is reduced
to an acceptable level.

You should also discard all feces from any infected dogs, but be careful!
Humans can also spread the virus on their hands if they touch feces from an
infected dog and then touch another dog, especially a puppy, without washing
their hands thoroughly. Tiny amounts of fecal material on the infected dog's coat
can contain massive numbers of viral particles that can easily be transmitted to
susceptible dogs.

Dont forget too to disinfect your clothes and shoes (use bleach or a professional
veterinary laundry detergent in your wash). This is especially important if you've
been in an environment that you suspect may be infected with the virus, such as
a vets office or a kennel. Remove your shoes before you come inside your
home and disinfect them.

20. If The Worst Happens


20.1. Burial Or Cremation?
If you are unlucky enough to lose any of your dogs to Parvo, then your first
decision is how to dispose of the body.

You can choose to have him cremated, although this is not a cheap option.

However, many people prefer to bury their dog on their own property, not only for
financial reasons, but for sentimental ones too.

If you do choose to bury your dog in your own back yard, then you need to make
sure that he is laid to rest at least four feet deep below the surface, and it is also
best to put him in one or more layers of plastic (e.g. thick contractor bags), as
you need to try to keep the virus from rising back to the surface and infecting
other animals.

We also recommend pouring bleach into the hole before filling it back in, and
then pouring more bleach on the ground once youve filled the hole in.

20.2. Getting Another Dog


We realise that the thought of getting another dog after losing one to Parvo may
be far from your mind, but if youre a dog lover, then the day will come when you
decide you want another dog (or two).

Many people recommend that you wait between six months and a year before
putting a new puppy or dog into an infected environment (even if you have
disinfected it).
Page 90

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

However, with Parvo being so hardy and being able to survive for so long
outdoors, then is it ever truly safe to get another dog?

In fact, given that Parvo is deemed ubiquitous, which means its practically
everywhere in the environment, then you could argue that getting a dog at any
time is dangerous.

And to a degree, thats true, so read the next section, called Arrival Of New
Dogs, for what we recommend.

Page 91

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

21. Arrival Of New Dogs


Whenever you get a new dog, whether its after a Parvo outbreak, or its your first
dog, or you already have one or more dogs, we always recommend giving the
new dog a prevention dose of the products in the ParvoBuster Viral SmackDown Kit.

Why?

Well, for one thing, with Parvo being ubiquitous, you may have the virus on your
property and not even know it.

Secondly, you dont know what that new dog may be bringing with it it may
already be infected with Parvo, even if it came straight from a breeder, pet store,
rescue or shelter. It may even have been vaccinated, but that may, of course, be
what ends up giving the dog Parvo in the first place.

So, the safest course of action is to give the new dog the five-day prevention
treatment, just to be on the safe side, and if the dog does start to develop Parvo
symptoms, then youll be in the best possible position and simply need to step up
the treatment to the full sickness protocol.

And if he doesnt have Parvo, then no problem the products wont cause any
side-effects, and they will help to boost his immune system anyway.

But, we dont stop there!

If you already have one or more dogs, then the arrival of a new one poses
additional dangers again, because you dont know what that new dog will be
bringing with it.

Page 92

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


So, we also recommend giving prevention treatment to your existing dogs, as
well as to the new arrival(s).

Remember, just because dogs have been vaccinated against Parvo does not
mean they cant or wont become infected.

Page 93

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

22. Survival
After reading all of the above, you may wonder how any dog or puppy can
survive such a devastating virus.

However, not even the Parvovirus can disrupt the entire immune system. In
addition, every day that passes allows more time for more antibodies to be
produced. These antibodies can lock on to the virus and inactivate it.

Of course, if your dog has a weak immune system, has never been exposed to
the Parvovirus, and does not receive any treatment, then he may have less than
a 20% chance of survival.

So whether survival is possible amounts to a race between the damaged immune


system trying to recover and respond, and the fluid loss and bacterial invasion
caused by the Parvovirus.

You can greatly increase the odds in your dogs favor, by getting a Parvo
Treatment Kit and starting treatment immediately.

23. Cats And Parvo


23.1. A Short Parvo History Lesson
When Canine Parvo first emerged in the 1970s, it is believed that it evolved from
a cat virus. (Others believe it may have been manufactured in a lab, but there is
no evidence for this - yet.)

Since then, Parvo has undergone five major mutations, resulting in the latest,
and most devastating strain yet, officially known as 2c (but sometimes referred to
as the F-Strain).

And the bad news, for cat owners at least, is that Canine Parvovirus can now be
transmitted from dogs to cats, where it manifests itself as Feline Distemper (aka
Feline Panleukopenia or Feline Parvo).

So, the virus has come full circle, and its showing no signs of slowing down, as
outbreaks reach epidemic proportions in some areas.

23.2. Symptoms
The symptoms of Feline Distemper are, to all intents and purposes, identical to
those of Canine Parvovirus i.e. not eating, not drinking, lack of energy,
diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, depression, fever, chills.

However, with cats typically having a much more delicate system than dogs, the
effects can be even more severe.

Page 95

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


23.3. Treatment
The same products that are used to treat Canine Parvo can also be used to treat
Feline Parvo i.e. the ParvoBuster Viral Smack-Down Kit or the ParvoBuster
All-In-One Parvo Kit.

The home remedies contained in our Parvo Treatment Guide for sick cats (e.g.
the Emergency Tea Recipe to prevent dehydration) are very similar to those we
provide to our canine customers, but with all of the necessary adjustments to
take account of the different needs of cats compared to dogs.

Do NOT use the Parvo Emergency Tea recipe that is on our website or in
this book, as that is ONLY for dogs.

As with dogs, cats that have recently been vaccinated or dewormed are harder to
treat because of the toxic chemicals that are present in these drugs.

For example, we often find that these animals vomit uncontrollably, as they
desperately try to flush the chemicals out of their systems.

If you need to order a Parvo Treatment Kit for cats, please contact us via our
website.

Page 96

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


23.4. After-Care
The same recommendations we make in the After-Care chapter apply to cats
too, namely:
no vaccinations unless they are required by law
no commercial cat food, as its full of toxic chemicals that will cause long-term
health issues Triumph make a high-quality, chemical-free cat food too and
we encourage you to use this
no chemical-based dewormers
no access to any household cleaning products that are usually chemicalbased, as ingestion of these, even in minute quantities, will make your cat
sick
daily maintenance doses using the products in the ParvoBuster Viral
Smack-Down Kit to keep their immune systems topped up.

Page 97

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com

24. Vaccination Resources


As previously stated, we do not believe in vaccinations, period.

Now, it is possible that you can find yourself in a jam: somehow the local animal
control have begun a fund raiser and they start a harassment campaign in your
neighborhood.

They go door-to-door looking for "infractions" i.e. ways to

separate you from your cash. Basically, whatever animals they find, they will be
looking to see if they have been fixed (spayed or neutered) and if they are
current on their rabies shots. This scenario happens more often than you'd think;
so, avoid whenever possible.

Yes, sadly this happened to us. When we were in Los Angeles, CA, the animal
control did a sweep of our entire block and probably made some tidy easy cash
as there were lots of animals and most likely many were not "compliant".

Well as they say, you can't fight city hall. It is not really practical as you will be
looking at a lot of your time squandered and probably even more fees than the
initial citations. So, unless you have an ace in the hole or a powerful friend, then
you either comply or move far away or both, which is what we eventually had to
do.

Most people have no real clue about how far reaching the vaccination industry as
a whole is willing to go to ensure more and more people use these toxic
products. Just check out some of the links we found to credible sources on this
subject and you could be in for a rude awakening.

Anyhow, what strategies do we suggest for animal rabies vaccinations?

Well, unfortunately our cover was blown recently. One of our dogs nipped or
scratched the UPS driver, he reported it to his dispatcher and they in turned

Page 98

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


reported it to Animal Control. So, we had to put her in home-quarantine: for 10
long days she had to be isolated from all of our other dogs we lucked out that
she is not a barker like one of our other dogs, that would have been like having a
2-week migraine don't know of many that could deal with that...

OK, so this is what we did.

We followed the home-quarantine checklist to the letter, i.e. isolation from


our dogs and any other animals, walked her on a leash for bathroom
breaks, and so forth. We did not want to have to start this whole thing
over from scratch.

We had about three-four weeks to provide them with proof that she had
the rabies shot. That meant we had to work fast. We needed to find the
"safest", if you can call it that, rabies vaccines available. We did the
research and two candidates emerged: Fort Dodge/Pfizer RabVac 3 TF
and Merial Imrab 3TF. (The TF is short for Thimerosal-Free - Thimerosal
is a form of mercury, which is a potent neurotoxin!)

We set the date for a home


visit from the local mobile vet
about a week and half after
the quarantine was over. We
then did an overnight order to
replenish our products (we
used Combo 16 listed below)
since we knew that we'd use
extra for this ordeal.

Next we began doggie prep: Crystal (our little trouble maker in the photo
above) went on a full de-tox using this protocol:

Daily Maintenance

products twice a day instead of once a day as we do normally, and we

Page 99

Parvo Treatment 101 from ParvoEmergencyTreatment.com


added the MaxoTox as well (see Combo 15 or Combo 16 below). We did
this for over a week.

When the vet arrived, we made sure that he brought the correct vaccine:
in our case they only had the Fort Dodge RabVac 3 TF and not the Merial
Imrab 3 TF. Once we verified it was the one we pre-ordered, we made
sure he took a new needle out of the packet, swabbed the injection site
with alcohol, evacuated any air out of the syringe, he gave the shot in
between the shoulder blades he said that was the customary practice in
his office, then that part was done.

We continued the de-tox protocol for another two weeks or so after the
shot to help flush out all of that toxic crap.

Well, it has been over eleven months and no problems so far, and we
hope this continues.

We do and will always administer the Daily Maintenance dose as this is


our primary prevention method to keep our doggies healthy. Even though
we live in the worst state for Parvo (AZ), we have not had an outbreak, our
dogs are healthy, and we DO NOT give them Parvo or any other 5-in-1, 7in-1, 8-in-1 whatever vaccinations.

If your back is against the wall and you have to give your dog a rabies
vaccination then do what we did and your animal will have a much better chance
at avoiding short- as well as long-term health issues.

Recap
1. Make your appointment for a 3-year rabies vaccination (give yourself a
good 2-3 weeks' head start). Do not go for a 1-year as you will definitely
put your animal on overload and this will be very dangerous and lifethreatening. Also, DO NOT allow them to give him any other vaccinations.
SAY NO! Tell them you will not be paying for anything other than what
you ordered which is the 3-year TF rabies shot and possibly an office visit
fee (try to get out this if you can). Stand your ground don't let them
coerce, brow-beat, or fill your head with psycho babble and BS.
Remember, vaccinations are a Billion Dollar industry and vets are no
different - they want a piece of that very lucrative vaccination pie.
2. Get your dog(s) on the full de-tox protocol (see products and dosage chart
below).
3. Do the de-tox for ideally two weeks before having the shot administered.
Daily Maintenance (DM) + MaxoTox 2 times per day (see chart, below, for
the dosage guide)
4. Get the 3-year rabies shot using the TF version only.
5. Continue the de-tox protocol for two weeks after the rabies vaccination.
Then drop down to the Daily Maintenance dose (i.e. give the drops just
once per day).

Oh BTW, Daily Maintenance does mean give the drops

(from both products) each and every single day from now on indefinitely.
This is how you will keep him germ-bug-bacteria-parasite-virus free!
6. Then 2 or 3 times a year do the full De-tox for at least 1 week.

Important Notes: How To Administer The Products

Supplies needed: a clean small dog bowl, some "fun" food that is safe, natural,
and something that he will readily consume without effort. Things our dogs love
are: puppy milk (yes they are all over 2 years old, but they don't care), pancakes,
bread, fruit juice like apple, strawberry, peach (no grapes or grape-related
juice/fruit, e.g. raisins, dates, sultanas, plums, prunes, etc. as this is indigestible
for them and can cause serious health issues), and never give them anything
with caffeine as this is toxic for dogs and cats.

1.

Carefully unscrew the bottle cap. Next, squeeze the rubber bulb of the eye
dropper (aka medicine dropper) to evacuate any product.

2.

Replace the medicine dropper, after you've hand-tightened the dropper


and it is securely in place, shake the bottle, then squeeze the rubber bulb,
to get the product in the tube.

3.

Unscrew the cap, then only squeeze a droplet out at a time count as a
drop of liquid falls into the clean pet bowl. Yes, this means a single little
drop of liquid should emerge from the open-end of the dropper (see
image).

4.

Use the number of drops indicated in the chart! This is crucial that you
use the drop count in the chart, we don't want to overdose.

5.

NEVER put the dropper anywhere near your cat or dog as this will crosscontaminate the products rendering them useless/dangerous if your
animal has a contagious disease such as Parvo for example.

6.

Store the products in a cool shaded area no direct-sunlight.


Refrigeration is optional. They should be effective for two years or so.

7.

For the capsules, gently unscrew or pull apart a capsule for a small dog or
cat, add half the contents, save the rest for later; for larger dogs add the
entire contents of a whole capsule as the dosage chart indicates. By
adding the powder from the capsule to the fun food, you will not have to
fight with your pet as he will think this is a treat. This makes life simple. If
you have cats you'll know that getting them to take a pill is next to
impossible. If you can survive getting it into their mouth, then you'll need a
personal force field as that pill will come back to you like a missile!

One other thing, although the chart is meant as a guideline, obviously you may
have several dogs that weigh different amounts, so if you have some small pets
and some larger pets, say in the 21 100 lbs. (9.08 45.36 kg.) range, then you
will probably need the Combo 16 (see above) to start off and then just get what
you need as top-ups in the future. By planning this out, you can use US Priority
Mail to save on shipping. Of course if this is an emergency, then by all means
order using FedEx Overnight.

24.3. Other Ways To Keep Your Dog Healthy
The Daily Maintenance doses are part of the ways we keep our doggies out of
the vet's office. Here are the other things we do:

Be as organic as possible, i.e. lead a chemical-free lifestyle.

Feed them a nutritious safe dog food (BestDryDogFood.net or if you have


cats, BestDryDogFood.net/Cats)

Remove cleaning, gardening chemicals, and pesticides, find safe


alternatives.

For more ideas on a Green life style, go here:

BeingGreen.org

Now, if you have to disinfect your house, say if you were unfortunate to
have a recent Parvo Outbreak, then you will have to use things that will kill
the virus and most green or even conventional cleaners will not do this.

Check out the two products on the following page for some Clorox bleach
alternatives

Folks, the two products above are a germ-killing 1-2 smack-down punch. These
products will kill most nasties. They are much milder and more effective than
bleach. Here's a bonus: the OdoBan smells like an outdoor flower garden and it
does a brilliant job at eliminating pet odors.

One of our other dogs is a senior and it is not uncommon for her to have
accidents (feces). We use the DINPOO, let it dry, then use a generous amount
of the OdoBan and we are germ free and super fresh (reminiscent of
Honeysuckle lite).

This is what we use, and while we don't have a research lab in the backyard, we
feel confident that by using our Daily Maintenance, lifestyle choices, the
disinfectants listed above, that we are protected from most toxins, germs,
bacteria, fungi, viruses, etc.

Once again, we don't vaccinate unless compelled to as described above, we use


the least amount of chemicals as possible, we feed the dogs a healthy safe dry
dog food, we don't even have any bleach yet we are able to easily eliminate most
germs and we don't have to use HazMat gear!
