There is no cure for canine parvovirus, but treatment can help manage the symptoms and support the dog’s body systems until the immune system can fight off the viral infection. Treatment usually includes a fluid drip to prevent dehydration and electrolyte imbalances caused by severe diarrhea and vomiting. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to treat concurrent bacterial infections. Painkillers such as acetaminophen, paracetamol, ibuprofen, and naproxen may be used to manage pain. Blood transfusion may be carried out in case of severe anemia. The diagnosis of parvovirus infection aims at confirming the presence of the virus either by testing for antigen or for the antibodies. Treatment aims at managing pain and treating the infection. It is important to note that prevention is key when it comes to canine parvovirus. Vaccination is the most effective way to prevent infection. Puppies should receive a series of vaccinations starting at 6-8 weeks of age, with boosters every 3-4 weeks until they are 16-20 weeks old. Adult dogs should receive a booster shot every 3 years or as recommended by their veterinarian.
