  2. I think my dog has possibly overdosed!

    Dog Health
    Okay I'm gonna start from the beginning. I have a 3 month old puppy named Bindi. She's a very hyperactive dog, has a very ravenous appetite, loves to play with her toys. Wednesday she was completely fine except for not wanting to eat all of her food. I usually put her in her kennel around 10:30...
  3. Life after Parvo

    Dog Health
    So I thought I'd start a new thread seeing as the Parvo thread, while very informative, seems to be very quiet. There is a lot of information out there on getting your dog through Parvo, keeping him hydrated, getting him to the vet asap, but less for after Parvo care. My main question is, why...

    Hi, I'm a new member here, a recent immigrant to the US, and a new puppy parent. Being new to the US and having a new puppy is more challenging than I thought, and I hope to get some good advice here.

    Recently our puppy Scarlett overcame the Parvovirus. We were so scared and had a million questions when we went through this. My fiance and I read lots of forums such as this for advice.

  9. Vets office is closed & I'm very concerned about my puppy.

    Dog Health
    My puppy is 11 weeks old. Her last set of vaccinations was at 9 weeks. She saw my vet at 10 weeks old and she was in good health. Recently, she's begun licking her vulva constantly. When I take her for a walk in our yard she'll stop and lick it. Sometimes, mid walk, shell kind of skip and pick...

She got pretty sleepy and stopped eating and had pretty loose stool. But...
  11. Confused about lack of Parvo symptoms — now 10th day — need advice

    Dog Health
    Hi, My 6 month-old pup refused food for three days and, upon visiting the vet, was diagnosed with parvo. We couldn't afford the treatment (where I live it's $700-1,300), so the vet gave her an anti- bacterial shot and we began to scour the Web for home remedies. All we've done is give her...

I've been able to save two pups in the past with parvo vaccine and subcutaneous lactated ringers solution but those two pups were twice the age of the 46 day old boy I have before...

  14. Vet providing conflicting information on shots and socialization

    Dog Health
    The details: we have an 8 week old puppy who has had two distemper shots, and two combination shots for parvo, etc. We scheduled an appointment with the vet and I was told that they wanted to wait 4 weeks until his next distemper shot, and that they likely wouldn't do another combination shot...
