i have a 2year old collie sharpee mix. he had parvo when he was a puppy, he had the whole not eating or drinking symptoms. He is not not eating or drinking at all today. i even put wet food in his regular dry dog food to help him out, but he's not even looking at the bowl twice. any suggestions on ways to help him eat... could he have parvo again?? also, he's up to date on his parvo/distemper shots
If he already had parvo, he shouldn't be getting more parvo vaccines ever, for the rest of his life. And no, they can't get it twice. You should ask your vet if they'd like some blood from him. Dogs that contract parvo can use the antibodies in your dog's blood to help bolster their immune systems. Where I work, we pay around $100 for a liter of blood from dogs that have had parvo. (We see a lot of puppies at my clinic, so it's always good to have on hand.) Look for other sources. Did you change his food recently? Could he have eaten something he shouldn't have, like bugs, paint, ant spray, grapes? He could have an obstruction - say, a sock not passing through his intestines. Are there other symptoms: lethargy, increased urination, difficulty eliminating? If he doesn't get around to eating tomorrow night, take him in.
