Hi… on Monday I went to the doctor expecting to be 6weeks and one day. My OB did an US and said I was measuring at 5/5. Shr took HCG blood work and on Wednesday had me go for more. The tests came back that my HCG levels only rose 40%. That night I lost ALL of my pregnancy sysmptoms… which I only had breast tenderness and exhaustion. I have had no cramping… but onve when I whiped there was a very thing almost mucousy line of brown blood. Have I lost my baby? Should I be waiting for a missed miscarriage? I am scheduled for more bloodwork on Monday… but I really would like to know what Im walking into. 🙁
Parvo should be treated as soon as possible. If you cannot afford the services of a veterinarian, you should aggressively treat your puppy by forcing liquids with a meat basting syringe. Gatorade, clear broth or infant pedialyte can help hydrate a sick puppy, but must be forcibly given as often as possible. Home treatment must replicate the treatment from a veterinary office which provides hydration intravenously, so you must force the liquids every few minutes. You can make an effective oral rehydration solution by adding a teaspoon of salt and two tablespoons of sugar to a quart of sugar.
