Effective Treatment & Recovery for Parvo in Dogs and Puppies
Secrets to your dog or puppy not only surviving but thriving after parvo
What is Parvo?
The Parvovirus is an intestinal virus that attacks the lining of the intestinal tract, all the way from the mouth to the rectum. The most common symptoms of pravo in dogs are vomiting, diarrhea, and blood in the stool. Parvo is extremely contagious and can be transmitted by any person, animal or object that comes in contact with an infected dog’s feces. It’s very important to look out for these symptoms especially in puppies and weaker adult and senior dogs that are possibly unvaccinated or have compromised immune systems. If left untreated parvo can even result in death.
Why Vaccination Isn’t the Only Way Prevent Parvo in Dogs
Most vets are convinced that the prevention of Parvo is by vaccination, but it is just as important to not over-vaccinate considering that it is one of the leading causes of death in dogs. Over-vaccination is also the indirect cause of many diseases since they tend to infect the body with viruses and trace amounts of heavy metals and other chemicals that do much more harm than good and are often not needed.
The existence of maternal antibodies or “passive immunity” proves this fact. When a puppy nurses for the first time, the milk is full nutritious protection from disease, including parvovirus, and is passed from mother to puppy. However, this built in natural protection, antibodies, dissipates shortly after nursing stops mainly due to the dramatic change in diet. Puppies that go from easy to digest bio-available food to synthetic vitamins and high starch foods will take a dramatic fall in their overall immunity. Also, every time you vaccinate against parvovirus, part of the mother’s natural protection is destroyed. So vaccinating is really a double-edged sword; it creates long-lasting antibodies but it also creates a weakness in the body’s immune system.
The Easiest Way to Prevent Canine Parvo
The main thing you must be aware of is the proper functionality of your dog’s immune system, especially since you pup is not able to respond to vaccines until they’re at least 6 weeks old. The absolute best way to prevent Parvo is ensuring that the immune system doesn’t break down after nursing stops. You can easily do this by providing raw or cooked whole foods and supplements to your dog. Despite popular believe, dogs thrive on real foods found in nature instead of dry or wet foods laden with preservatives, chemicals, and inflammation inducing ingredients. Puptection’s dehydrated pre-mixes are a great addition and alternative to any tradition pet diet.
Nutritional Recommendation for Parvo in Dogs
Since feeding a raw or cooked whole food diet is the best option for canine nutrition and halting the symptoms of Parvo, we recommended a basic but balanced version of a traditional “bland” diet, which was easily achieved with one of Puptection’s dehydrated pre-mixes. Our dehydrated foods are a perfect way to make any diet complete and balanced and have been clinically proven to naturally reduce negative immune response in the body through the elimination of indigestible starches like sugar, flour, yeast, corn, and other by-products commonly used in commercial and prescription foods, while supporting digestion and absorption . Also in this particular case, dogs required a diet that possesses an easily digestible form of vitamins, minerals, protein
Treating Parvo & the Road to Recovery
Pet owners shouldn’t fret there are no “drugs” available that can kill the virus because effective treatment is very straightforward and consists of supportive care to control symptoms and aggressively boost your dog’s immune system to help him win the battle against this dangerous disease. We recommend a number of detoxifying supplements to support immunity and kick-start the body into “healing” mode so it can defend itself against the virus. To support the detoxification process, the body requires a variety of minerals and nutrients. If these nutrients are in low supply or the body is malnourished, the toxins are not properly excreted and remain in circulation. These un-neutralized toxins can be stored in body tissues such as the skin, muscles, brain, nervous system, or colon and can cause chronic inflammation, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, and weakness in dogs with Parvo.
The following food & supplements are critical in the repairing of the intestinal tract and overall health.
V-Flow Daily Detoxifying Powder for Pets
Detoxifying your dog will work miracles for their health & wellbeing and it doesn’t involve purging, fasting, or bland diets. It’s as simple as sprinkling powder on top of whatever they’re already eating.

PWZ Purifying Clay for Pets
Another common nutritional issue that had to be addressed was mineral deficiency. Since feeding bones (raw or smoked) has become taboo, many dogs suffer from a lack of minerals in the system. A natural mineral supplement is a great way to support the health of the skin and other bodily functions such as digestion, circulation, and the repair of tissue. Our patented Purifying Clay Mix W/ Calcium Bentonite Clay not only leeches toxins from the vital organs and blood, but replaces them with 60+ trace minerals and electrolytes like calcium, silica, phosphorous, potassium, sulphur, iron, copper, and magneseium to balance thyroid function, increase bone and joint health, stop diarrhea & constipation, prevent waste odor, and naturally repair cellular damage.
