Parvo in dogs can sometimes be cured but there's no guarantee that a dog with parvo can be cured of it.

Parvo is deadly to dogs that are not treated in a timely manner and even then sometimes treatment may not be able to save a dog infected with Parvo.

If your dog does get Parvo just be aware that even when you do get prompt medical attention for your dog with Parvo that they still might not survive.

I have known a few dogs who got Parvo and were taken to the vet and they luckily survived the parvo and the dog was cured of the parvo.

But I've also had a few dogs of my own that had died from parvo even with medical treatment.

Signs and symptoms of Parvo in dogs include loss of appetite, abdominal pain and bloating, fever or low body temperature (hypothermia), vomiting; and severe, often bloody, diarrhea.

Also a dog who has Parvo can experience persistent vomiting and diarrhea which can cause rapid dehydration, and damage to the intestines and immune system can cause septic shock.

Parvo is a serious virus and disease in dogs and can be contracted through dog feces.
