My rottweiler is very weak after Parvo treatment
My six month old dog had parvo and was treated successfully. during the treatment he became very very weak and even after treatment he is not gaining weight.
Although he eats well and i am also giving him vitamins and minerals as per my vet instruction but he is still not gaining weight,He eats a lots of soil.
He is also not very active. CAN you help me.
As I'm sure you know, Parvo in puppies is very serious, and your pup is most definitely a lucky boy to have survived.
The most acute stage of Parvo usually lasts somewhere between 7 and 10 days, sometimes up to 2 weeks, and if a puppy or dog survives that then he will most likely make a full recovery - however it will be slow and take time. It can actually take a couple of months for a pup to regain weight and energy, this is normal.
He will need a very nutritious diet and lots of rest, after that it's just a matter of time. Luckily there are generally no long-term effects from Parvo and your pup will make up the lost weight and his energy will return, but his body needs time to build up strength again.
Hope this puts your mind at rest, I wish you the best of luck with your pup.
