The first thing you must understand is that the parvovirus is “ubiquitous”, that’s a fancy word for saying, “It’s everywhere”. When i say everywhere, I mean everywhere. Your dogs best defense against this nasty little pathogen is the parvo combination vaccine. It primarily affects puppies, dogs with compromised immune systems and older or geriatric dogs.
This amazing little bug is constantly evolving, so make sure you routinely ask your veterinarian about any updated parvo vaccines, for your puppy or dog.
No vaccine is 100% guaranteed to be effective, so at the first sign of listlessness or lethargy take your puppy or dog to your vet immediately, even if he has his shots. DO NOT GO LOOKING FOR ANSWERS ON THE WEB !!!,
I here and read about too many people losing their puppies to parvo, And this just shouldn’t be. Vaccinate your animals

Additional Notes- 12.04.2008
There are plenty of home treatments and remedies for Parvo. But without your dog receiving sub-Q fluids (fluids under the skin), your dog will not make it. Any fluids you try to administer orally, will be vomited back up.
