The Canine Parvo virus very often attacks at the worst possible time (not that there’s ever a good moment for your dog to be attacked by the Canine Parvovirus, needless to say) – you might find it is 3:00am on a Sunday morning, and the vet’s clinic is shut.
In which case, what can you do?
You might already be aware that puppies suffering from Parvo often dehydrate extremely fast, which is why veterinarians will likely put them on an intravenous drip, but of course intravenous drips usually aren’t something you are able to simply purchase at your local supermarket.
And if you have no idea about the risks associated with dehydration, a fast research session using the web will soon point you in the right direction.
The good thing is that there is a home hydration therapy that is, in most cases, at least as efficacious as IV fluids as well as subcutaneous fluids …
… and it’s called the Parvo Emergency Tea Recipe.
What is it?
It’s something you can make in the home, utilizing ingredients you can easlily purchase at most sizable supermarkets or drug stores, and it’s intended to accomplish two or three assorted jobs.
Firstly, it is a natural electrolyte liquid that can help prevent your sick puppy from getting dehydrated. (We know a number of people, among them veterinarians, may well advocate using Gatorade or Pedialyte for this, although our own experience indicates that these two fluids may cause extra vomiting, which is the last thing you desire if your doggy has the Canine Parvovirus.)
The second thing is, it may well actually calm down throwing up – without the need for chemical-based substances which could induce, not surprisingly, additional health problems.
Third, some of the ingredients in the Parvo Emergency Tea can help supercharge your doggie’s immune system, which will certainly be under heavy attack from the Canine Parvovirus.
Now, there are several things that you need to know about this emergency tea, the most important of which is that you need to administer it each and every hour, and that does include both night and day, until you are able to commence full treatment for the Parvo.
You see, you’re pretty much behaving like a human IV drip, and one of the keys to the treatment of Parvo is always to give limited amounts of liquid regularly – since not only is dehydration a danger with this virus, but so is overhydration too.
But a lot more important than that, you must realise that the Parvo Emergency Tea is NOT designed to take care of the Canine Parvo virus – whilst it does attempt to simulate the Parvaid product using only easily-obtained items, it’s not even close to being potent enough to help remedy your suffering dog.
You should consequently NOT count on this tea recipe to get your sick dog better again – it was created to buy you precious time and sustain him until you can get the right treatments started (and we would, needless to say, highly recommend the Parvo Treatment Kit).
While it’s true a really small number of dogs do manage to survive using only the Parvo Tea (coupled with tons of TLC), we’ve found this happens in about 0.1% of cases – and that’s approximately one puppy out of every thousand!
Are you ready to bet that your family dog is the single lucky pet in a 1,000?
We know we wouldn’t – our dogs happen to be way too important to us.
So, though we’d definitely recommend you to make and give the Parvo Emergency Tea as soon as you notice any of the classic Parvo symptoms (i.e. not eating, not drinking, being lethargic / not playing, dehydration, depression, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, vomiting, chills or fever), please, for the sake of your doggy, make sure you get him treated instantly!
We had one customer who had a doggie which died just five hours following the very first attack of diarrhea, which just goes to show how potent the Canine Parvo virus has become. This is so quick that you scarcely have enough time to respond, which is one of the reasons we strongly encourage every dog owner to keep a Home Parvo Treatment Kit around constantly – just in case.
