Stop This Scene Before It Happens!
Imagine getting up in the morning to take your loving dog for a morning walk and finding your dog throwing up, having violent attacks of diarrhea, not eating, and literally wasting away right before your very eyes.
“But how could this be? “, you may ask. “Last night my sweet loving dog was doing fine and now… is my dog poisoned, what could possibly be wrong? Oh my, this throwing up is out of control, the diarrhea won’t stop!”
This could be the scene that you encounter if heaven forbid your dog contracted what is perhaps the most devastating virus a dog can contract. Canine Parvovirus can be extremely devastating to a dog, especially if the dog is attacked by the new 2c strain of Parvo, also known as the F-Strain.
The F-Strain is a much more aggressive variant of the Parvovirus. According to veterinarians the symptoms of Parvo appear in a matter of hours, not days, and if you do not rush and treat your dog it can die in as little as six hours!
How Does Canine Parvovirus Attacks Your Dog?
Parvo is a viral disease that once contracted it attacks the lining of the intestinal tract, bone marrow and immune system of dogs. Because it attacks the intestinal track it can cause vomiting (especially yellow, frothy vomit), a foul-smelling and bloody diarrhea, lethargy, depression, severe dehydration, a very high fever/chill and sudden death.
Apart from the acceleration in the rate of symptoms appearing, the best clue you have that your dog has the 2c strain instead of one of the older, more standard strains, is if he has bloody diarrhea within the first two to three hours.
Can Parvo Be Prevented?
Now, as with any other virus that could affect your dog, the best solution to keeping this scary virus from harming your sweet dog is to make sure your dog is vaccinated against this deadly virus. However you must make sure that the vaccine does in fact cover the latest 2c strain instead of just the older strains. So make sure you ask your veterinarian which strain the vaccine they will administer will protect your dog from.
As far as I have been told, “only Intervet manufactured vaccines that had been 100% challenge-tested against the 2c strain, but we’ve now had customers whose dogs had been vaccinated using their products, and yet still developed Parvo.” (Parvo Buster)
So even though you might have done the responsible thing and taken your dog to the veterinarian to get vaccinated, your dog may still be infected by the Parvo virus. Remember, viruses are very hard to control.
What To Do If Your Dog Contracts Parvo?
“If you take your dog to the vet, it will typically cost from $500 to over $12,000 per dog, and your vet will probably only give your dog a 25% to 85% chance of survival, with 50:50 odds being the most common.” (Parvo Buster)
The only other option that you have is to get a product called Parvaid. Essentially, Parvaid is an organic chemical-free solution that helps relief the symptoms of the Parvo virus. In addition to relieving the diarrhea, gas,vomiting and nausea, Parvaid will stimulate the dog’s appetite.
As an organic chemical-free solution, Parvaid will not further exasperate the dogs already weakened intestine and immune system by adding harmful chemicals that often have catastrophic side effects. Note that Parvaid is not meant for taking the place of vaccinations, but rather it is the last line of defense for a dog that has already contracted the Parvo virus. Parvaid is essentially your dogs last chance for survival considering that 80% of Dogs Will Die From It if not treated immediately.
Some of the hot spots in the US are: AR, AZ, CA, CO, FL, GA, IN, KS, MS, NC, NV, OH, SC, TN, TX and WI; however, many other states and some countries such as Australia, Canada, England and others are experiencing a marked increase in the number of Canine Parvovirus cases – most likely due to this new strain.
What If Your Dog Was Well Trained?
Imagine having a well trained dog that could make you proud every time your friends and family come over. You can show people how your dog sits, lays down, shakes, rolls over and whatever else you can manage to teach your dog. After all, dogs are very intelligent and can learn just about anything. I tell you, you could really keep your company entertained with your dog if your train him right!
I know a guy who trained his dog so that he could put a treat on the tip of his dogs nose and have the dog balance it there. The dog would keep the treat there until he told her to eat it, at which point the dog would flip it slightly into the air, and then she would eat the treat. That was an awesome trick. How did he do that?
Is Training Your Dog Beneficial To Your Dog?
I know, some of you dog lovers out there do not appreciate the fact that making a dog hold a treat without eating it is kind of cruel. After all, dogs love treats, and to keep them from eating them for any length of time has to be stressful.
Also, some of you may argue that training a dog so that we can show off to friends and family is really exploiting the poor dog. Perhaps you feel that dogs should be left alone, to do whatever they please, since they are animals and animals are meant to live by instinct. But really, is your argument for not training your dog really valid?
A Trained Dog Is A Happy And Safe Dog
I think that training a dog is always good, so long as your intent is not to exploit the dog. But having your dog show off their stuff to friends and family is not exploitation. In the case of the dog that holds the treat on her nose, she is rewarded by being able to eat her treat. So she knows there is a reward after doing what her master tells her. Not only that, she is exercising self control, something that a well behaved dog needs.
Besides, dogs actually enjoy getting all the attention and praise from their owners, and from those who are looking at them as they show off. Attention and praise are actually a reward in itself, so training your dog is a win-win situation for your dog.
If you ask dog training experts like the Dog Whisperer and Andrew Chastney, dogs love to please their masters. Not only that, by training your dog you give him or her the ability to adapt to situations that might other wise be stressful to them.
One common thing dog training experts teach their dogs is the command sit. Which incidentally, there are five different ways to teach your dog how to sit. Any how, the command sit can be used to keep your dog safe if he ever wonders off into the street. Here is what I mean.
After you teach your dog the basic sit command, take him or her for a walk. As you are walking your dog with a leash (remember safety first), pay attention to cars passing by. Whenever you see a car approaching give your dog the command to sit. This will teach your dog to sit every time he or she sees a car, so that if your dog was to wonder into the street, chances are they will sit when a car passes by instead of running into the car or chasing after it. This you will agree, is a life saving command.
Where Can You Find Help To Train Your Dog?
There are several resources out there to help you train your dog. One that comes to mind is Basic Dog Obedience. This easy but professional dog training system will teach you the ins and outs for training your dog.
What I like about this particular dog training program is that it gives you different approaches to training your dog. This can come in handy since not all dogs behave alike. So rather than wasting your time teaching your dog in a way that does not work , you can try a different approach.
