    Thanks everyone. I feel like calling another vet. Dr Burns even told me they were calling the pharmaceutical company that makes the parvo anti-virus vacantation to see what they think. I kept Buddy indoors for over a month just so something like this wouldn't happen. He still runs to my sliding door to go potty on accession on the porch. I had. and am having to train him to go outdoors now. The only thing I can think of is possibly the test it wrong??? Or one of the dogs here ( rescues ) that several people have here had it. and now is carrying the virus. I have no idea I still do not know enough about it. I will let you know how this progress's. Buddy has started to eat which is a good sign and he is still play-full. I visited him Tuesday and yesterday. The vets tech said she has seen dogs so sick with parvo they couldnt hold their head up and Buddy isactive and seems happy. Buddy is 5 months old. has had ALL his vacanations and boosters ( I know I paid of $500) just for the vacanations boosters. rabies and the exam fee with fecal exam ect) since I got him and his breeder sent documented paper work showing all his vacanations. This is insane, Thanks everyone Hero

    one of my dogs had parvo a few years back, he is a bullmastiff. I don't know how much different a bulldog may be? Yes, it can be deadly, but hopefully you caught it early. My vet first told me how much the meds were going to be and I was going to head south of the border to pick it up there. But then found a pharm company that I could get the meds from pretty inexpensive. I believe it was about $60 a month, but it was some time ago. I will see if I can find the info. when I get home. I just gave him a pill a day when feeding, took him in every quarter and had blood test done again. After two years his test came back clean. I still have him checked every 6 months, because it is never really gone, but no signs of it in any test and its been 8 or so years since he has had any medication. I hope this helps and prayers to Buddy

    Just got home from work, and found an old bottle... don't ask, we keep everything. The name of the drug that we were giving him was Fluconazole. You may want to check with you vet. I can send you the name of the pharmacy I got it at if you need it, they do online refills and shipping. I don't want to post it and risk breaking any rules.

    We use fluconazole for butler's valley fever! It's nice and cheap now, so if that's the med you're using it's very affordable.

    I don't know a lot about Parvo, but I do know a house I used to live at years ago...their dog had Parvo and it looked like a skeleton...it had lost so much weight. I was told by my vet that my yard was not safe for my dogs to go out in. The virus can still be on the ground for months after...all the dog droppings need to be cleaned up...anywhere the infected dog was in contagious.

    I am searching online now and writing it down and I am going to run it by my vet. I feel like telling the vet today ( depending if I can take Buddy home) that I feel it was very unprofesional not to call me yesterday afternoon to give me an update on Buddy before closing at 1pm. If I was a vet and I had hospitilized animals I would call my client every day with an update. I wanted to visit Buddy yesterday like I do everyday. Just so he knows I am not abandoning him. I will know at 830 am how he did last night. Thanks everyone for your warm wishs and help with this. Hero

    Well Buddy is home and his old self. She said ( the vet) he did not have a bad case of Parvo. She had seen much much worst. Cost,> $1872.00 Level 1 care, bio hazard fees , catheter sets drugs , ect > 2 pages. They already faxed my insurance company with the claim form and even Dr Burns said Trupanion with pay it all except the 10% co pay I have so that's a relief. She said she called the pharmaceutical company " Merial" or Meril. Don't exactly know how you spell it but Buddy has had 5 vaccinations for Parvo and still got it. She said we have a case number with them whatever that is supposed to mean. There are mixed opinions out there on if a dog can get parvo twice but most are saying no He will build a immunity to it now. I have 2 medications ( pills) I give him one of each twice a day. One is Clavamox and one is Metrondazole 250mg. I have to keep Buddy away from all other dogs for 3 weeks and have to spray where he poops with bleach and water every time as well. What a nightmare ! Well hopefully the worst is over. After picking him up from the vet you have never seen a happier puppy in your life. Buddy was so happy I had to pull over. He was all over my truck in my lap in my friends lap. Like Thank God for getting me out of there. I have brought him outdoors twice since we got home. Pee both times no poop. He is eating like a starved animal. I bathed him ( what a stench poor guy) cleaned his folds on his face. his tail pocket and cleaned his ears with the epi -optic solution. Now he is in his crate and resting. Well just thought I would fill you in on what happened. Thanks everyone for your support. Hero
