@LuvMyFluff Yes ive heard of the case studies at colorado institute regarding the 40 parvo pups, and i think your right i shouldn't force feed him because parvo attacks the microvilli within the intestines and GI tracts

i just wanted to post here to get some creative ideas and second opinions because its been sooo long since hes eaten * 7 days now * and i'm really worried but over all your right, i wont force feed him that will just cause him more abdominal pain / vomiting / diarrhea

Beef liver remedy for failing puppies

Take a large piece of beef liver, add a little bit of water, and boil slowly, about 5 minutes, until the blood comes out. Let cool, drain the liquid and put just 4 drops (no matter the breed) into a dropper and give to puppy. At first you give it every 2 hours for 12 hours, then every 4 hours. Continue until you feel the puppy is thriving. Don't use any of the liver itself, it's way too rich, just the liquid

I think this is a good idea, and paired with meat flavored water could really help. Please try these, and let us know how things are going.

Tons of nutrition in liquid form. Great for situations like this. I had actually forgotten about it, myself. I have always called it a liver broth.
