Me and hubby currently caring for puppy with parvo virus ... On subq fluids abx pedialyte ... Treating for 3 days .. This pm puppy suddenly welping whining and kind of went into " crazy " mode running around box ... She has had 2 episodes like this .... Any ideas?? Our vet is not open this late!!!!!!
This answer is coming a little late to you, my apologies. I cannot explain this strange behavior without seeing it but I do urge you to seek your vets advie asap. Parvovirus is a serious disease and even dog's that are responding well can all of a sudden take a turn for the worse. I rarely treat PV with SQ fluids and instead are more aggressive and hospitalize the puppy and maintain thier hydraton with intravenous fluids.
Thank you for your response.. Inpt hospitalization would have been optimal however due to financial concerns and the fact I'm a nurse, the doctor felt comfortable with tx at home .. The pup is doing ok now however she now has a wound that required tx this am at the vet. Thanks again !!
