i agree with txchica1187, she's rite about the symptons and everything! but she forgot one aside from smelling sick, losing appietite,not drinking anything,and throwing up with diahrrea, they also lose their hair. If you notice it in an early enough stage, it can sometimes be cured. when I was younger my dog caught parvo and we took her to the vet and they saved her! of course she stayed at the vet until she was cured and we missed her but I'm glad she lived!

Severe vomiting and diarrhea and usually death in 72 hours from dehydration. A dog can live if treated early enough. It's harder on very young or older dogs.

I just saw a TV show on Parvo and a young pup that had it...He had bloody diarrhea and a "sickly smell". Also lethargy and lack of energy and it just does not look well. He was not eating and drinking . They checked for dehydration by pulling his skin up and seeing how quickly it returned. Parvo is a virus tht is deadly to pups so if you think so Better get that pup to the vets before its to late
