I received these notes about treating parvovirus from J.D. Ward at the Rescue Ranch Sanctuary recently. Although most of what we deal with on this website is distemper, parvo is also a common enemy of shelter dogs and rescues. For more information or tips, please go to the Rescue Ranch Sanctuary.

Then you need to sterilize the gut. I really liked Pectolyn/Tylan in large doses. 5 to 10 cc per 10 pounds three time daily. (15 grams Tylan powder to 8 oz of pecto). Then the magic of medicine.
TAMIFLU. 1 CC PER LB TWICE DAILY ORALLY.
All variations on the parvovirus respond to the above treatment.
The problem out in the field now is that there is a new parvo. Parvo 2C. Most vaccines only cover for Parvo 2A and 2B.
Fluids (see above)
Antibiotics (see above)
Pecto/Tylan (see above)
