Hey there guys! We ended purchasing this pit puppy from a cragislist seller (I know adopting is better, but we can't find pups 8 weeks old). Anyway, we were told Waffle (that's what we named her) had all her first set of shots and dewormed on paper. We met up with the guy just to find out it was a 6 Week old pup and half the size she was supposed to be at that age, also with no paperwork whatsoever, just a weak, sick pup. Of course we couldn't just leave her with the negligent owner so we purchased her for 200$ plus another $175 for food and toys. We took her home to observe what she had, so we later at night took her straight to the vet (yesterday) after she had diarrhea all day, seemed very feeble and wouldn't eat or drink. She tested positive for Parvo, hookworms, roundworms, and tapeworms. We were told the bill was going to be $4000! So we talked to the vet and decided our best option was to do the home treatment so we were given antibiotic, dewormer, anti-nausea medication (even though waffle hasn't thrown up ever since we got her) Whole bill costed about $400. After we got home later at night, she was starting to feel better, playing, exploring, and today even better! She's eating on her own, drinking too, just when she wants hehe. But still has greenish diarrhea. We've been hydrating her with low sodium chicken broth, water, and pedialyte every hour (as we were told). I just wanted to ask if anyone has treated their pup with Parvo at home, and if so, how did it go? What did you do differently, any advice? ect. I'm just trying to get this puppy happy and healthy, hopefully she pulls through! Any input would be appreciated! Sorry for my crappy writing I have been up for 26 hours with finals and caring for the pup.
