TopicI think my baby kitten have parvo and I really love and care for this kitten as if it was a real human and I just want her to be okay
vet-qa-signature
Question:

How do I help her,!?!?

Answer:

"Parvo" is more common in dogs/puppies so depending on your kittens symptoms, it may just have intestinal parasites (like coccidia, etc.) which are easy to treat but can be fatal so go ahead and see your veterinarian for a definitiive diagnosis so you can get her treated.

TopicThrowing Up 24 Hours After Vaccine
vet-qa-signature
Question:

My dog was vaccinated for parvo yesterday and today he threw up clear. He ate one meal and was drinking water but has been throwing up since Is This Normal ?

Answer:

No, vomiting is not normal after a vaccine. Occasionally it may be due to the motion of the car but this far after the car ride, it would be ideal to have your veterinarian recheck him. Even if he is feeling better by the time you get this, let your veterinarian know how he reacted to that vaccine - they will want to note it in his chart.

Question:

My 6 mo old puppy (current on vaccinations) was on a play date 10 days ago. One of the other dogs present became ill yesterday and was diagnosed with parvo today. Should I take my pup to the vet? She is showing no symptoms.

Answer:

There is no need to take her in if she has no symptoms. Watch for vomiting, lethargy, not eating and diarrhea.

Question:

My puppy had his first vaccination and was scheduled today for his second. However 4 days ago he was diagnosed with parvo, only symptoms was diarrhea for two days otherwise acted completely normal. My question is what Is the likelihood that the test was a false positive, I wonder should he still get the second dose even though the vet tech says no?

Answer:

I would definitely give him a few more days for his immune system to fully recover so it can recognize the vaccine. Just keep him away from "high-dog-traffic" areas which parvo is more likely to be contracted until he is done with his vaccine series. The vet tech is correct - confirm with the veterinarian and discuss what day would be ideal (depends on a lot of things: how long ago his last vaccine was, how sick he was, what his blood work looked like, etc.)

TopicPuppy not vaccinated yet

Question:

New puppy scheduled to get shots on Friday. Death in family & have to go out of town. My son will stay with puppy but will have to take him to work with him & there is an older dog there that has had it shots. Is it OK to do that if he keeps them in separate rooms?

Answer:

An older, well vaccinated dog is not a concern. The concern for puppies is "high dog traffic areas" like parks or anywhere many dogs poop because parvo can live in the ground for months, possibly years, so the puppy doesn't have to come into contact with another dog necessarily, just avoid these areas and keep him from chewing on the soil,grass when he's walking around in unknown areas.

Question:

I have 2month old street puppy i abondon him 5days before 3rd day he did diarrhea so im feared and went to vet they gave him deworming injection with some syrups when we return our home his condition getting so bad he suddenly did bloody diarhea with heavy smell again we went to vet they gave him fluids but my worries he didn't eat but only drink some water his urine colour is dark yellowish and he just pee one time only with blood diarhea still he vomitting i dont know its parvo or some other issues

Answer:

Yes, it sounds like parvo. He ideally needs to be at your veterinarian's office on IV fluids and injections for nausea, pain and antibiotics. At home treatment is not recommended unless treatment at your vet is simply not an option at all.

You categorized this question under parvovirus and that is probably the most common and most worrisome possibility. At home treatment is not recommended unless treatment at your vet is simply not an option at all.
