Your vet will be looking for the signs of Parvo in puppies when examining your dog. This means that she will be checking to see whether your dog is showing discomfort or pain in his abdominal region, as well as whether they have bloody or sores in his mouth.
The vet will take into consideration your dog’s medical history, recent events, will perform a medical examination and will most likely run lab tests. A stool sample will be required in order to confirm the diagnosis.
Unfortunately, your vet will not be able to give your dog any specific drugs to cure Parvo. There is no cure for Parvo.
Instead, your vet will take actions to help support your dog’s natural immune response. This includes giving IV fluids, giving anti-nausial medicines to prevent vomiting, medicines to stop the diarrhea, as well as providing warmth and comfort.
In many cases, your dog will need to stay at your vet’s office for several days while she recovers.
Additionally, your vet will likely tell you how you can begin to attempt to disinfect your house and yard. You will want to try to clean up enough so that no other animals risk infection as well.
