If your dog is infected with Parvo, there is a 50% chance of survival and recovery if treatment is started. Survival rates are higher if aggressive treatment is started before severe signs occur. A critical part of treatment involves isolation to prevent the spread of the virus to other dogs.
For this reason, we at North Maclean Family Vet are unable to provide hospital treatment for dogs infected with parvovirus. We do not have appropriate isolation facilities in our clinic for highly transmissible and life-threatening diseases. If hospital care is undertaken at another veterinary facility, treatment may involve plasma transfusions, intravenous fluids, nutritional support, antibiotics and antivirals, anti-emetics (anti- vomiting drugs), and pain relief. The earlier your dog is treated the better the chances of survival. Even with treatment survival is not guaranteed. However, without treatment, almost all puppies will very likely die.
