Keep a close eye out for dehydration...but try fasting for 24 hours...and if you do give water...give frequent, but very small amounts...

...it works! Had to try it with Celeste after her spay this past Thursday...

I would definately fast for 24 hours and watch his/her gums for dehydration...you should take them to the vet tomorrow.

It could be parvo.
It could be ALOT of things...don't get all worked up, just keep and eye on them. Dogs get sick, too.

Yes it could be ALOT of things - but if parvo needs treated much more aggressively than if just a simple upset tummy. People need to be prepared for the worst if necessary. Even vaccinated dogs can get parvo.

My friend's dad is a Gastroenterologist and he always recommends for us humans to eat yogurt (with live cultures not the yoplait stuff) and drink gatorade to replace electrolytes.


****My friend and I never aked him why yogart but we assume that the cultures would attack bacteria?****Luvabull I would love to hear your opinion on that bc I know you are in the medical field.

That's why I recommened a visit to the vet, the chances of a vaccinated dog gettin parvo vs. an unvaccinated dog are less, it is possible, yes I agree, but not as likely.

That's a great suggestion. I'd only add that a 24 hr. fast is useful and then feed the yogurt after that.
