Hello. Thank you for using our service.
A parvovirus infection is most likely to be suspected if a young puppy is immobile, weak, and has diarrhea and vomiting. Parvovirus is a very small and highly contagious virus. About half of young puppies infected with this virus die if untreated. Therefore, I recommend that you take him to the veterinarian immediately. There is no specific cure for the virus, but your veterinarian can try symptomatic treatment, such as fluids, to keep his condition from worsening. Since puppies dying from parvovirus infections are very common, veterinary assistance is recommended. thank you.
