    DefaultHomer may have parvo!

    Last months have been just terrible with this poor boy. First the heart murmur, then the elbows, now it seems he has parvo... I just donīt understand whatīs going on with him, heīs always sick (very delicate stomach since pup)

    He had been ill since a week ago and we were treating him for a stomach infection, he was responding very well to the treatment but suddenly started going down again last thursday. Last night was terrible, he started throwing up at midnight and continued with diarreah several times during the night.

    In the morning I discovered the bloody, dark brown liquid, which makes me think the worse. Heīs current in all shots (last december), but heīs immune system is probably so weak after the surgery...

    Iīm awaiting for lab results but I fear the worse..

    Thanks all, I went home during lunch time to check him. He ate about half cup of kibble, and during the time I was there he didnīt throw up. He had bloody diarreah at some time during the morning, and still is very ill.

    has he seen a vet yet?
    if not and it is parvo supportive care (ie FLUIDS) are CRITICAL to saving him

    he is losing fluids faster than he can replace them probably ...

    I am sure you are sick to death of the vets after all you've been through but he may need help from them to get through this crisis no matter what it is - there is a snap parvo test they can run which will at least rule one thing out hopefully
