Parvo

I'm just needing some reassurance that my dog is on the right track to survive parvo...

The doctor said we caught it very early and gave him a 99% chance but we have to let the virus run its course. I m so worried. I m almost afraid the doctor is just trying to make me feel better.

timeline:

Thursday - vomited once, late at night. Before this, he was active playing - completely normal
Friday - not eating, knew something was wrong. Took him to the vet, positive for parvo. IV and meds started. (No vomiting out diarrhea this day)

Saturday - no vomiting, no diarrhea... still not eating. Alert and happy to see us. Still on IV.

Sunday - diarrhea overnight and still hadn t eaten anything. We brought chicken and rice in the AM and he ate several bites of chicken. Went back in the evening and he d thrown up the chicken, looked like he didn t feel good but still wagged his tail. Doc gave anti vomiting and anti diarrhea meds. Still on IV.

From what I understand, dogs and puppies tend to do fairly well as long as they are somewhere where the parvo symptoms can be managed. It sounds as though you caught it early enough and brought your dog in before any severe dehydration or major damage could be done. Unfortunately, there's no magic cure for parvo yet, but it sounds like your dog is getting the best care possible.

And by "fairly well" I mean they survive.

In my experience 'catching it early' does not equate a great prognosis, though certainly far better than 'catching it late'. Better to not catch it at all (keep young dogs off ground in public places until fully vaccinated and vaccinate on schedule). However, hospitalized on fluids, antibiotics and antiemetics about 85% end up surviving.
