Treat canine parvovirus with a clinically proven herbal formula that activates natural canine defenses, empowers biological systems, and restores your dog or puppy's wellness.
New Killer on the Block
Parvo is one of the most terrifying words in a dog lover’s world, especially if you're talking about a puppy. Canine parvovirus is too often a death sentence for puppies, and older dogs can fall victim as well especially if they have a weakened immune system. This devastating virus was only discovered in 1978, but in a short time it has spread through the world infecting countless dogs every year.
There are two forms of parvo: cardiac and intestinal. The cardiac form is less common and generally attacks young puppies, causing the respiratory and cardiovascular systems to fail. The more common form is respiratory parvo, which attacks both puppies and older dogs.
How Does Parvo Spread?
Parvo is spread through contact with an infected dog’s feces. If one puppy in a litter has it, it is likely that all puppies on the premises will also be infected. Parvo is slightly more likely to infect certain breeds including Rottweilers, Doberman Pinscher, Labradors, and German Shepherds, but any breed may contract the virus. Dogs that are under stress, infected with other bacteria or viruses, or infested with parasites are more likely to fall victim to and die from the disease.
Can Parvo be Prevented?
All dogs should be vaccinated against parvo. Vaccines offer some protection to fully vaccinated dogs, but even dogs that have been vaccinated can contract parvo. Many parvo vaccines are outdated or have poor survival rates, so your dog's vaccination may not have been effective.
Parvo attacks the bone marrow, which produces the body's blood cells. An attack on the production of new cells is a serious blow to the body's immune system. Parvo attacks the lymphatic system and causes severe damage to the gastrointestinal tract. It can also lead to myocarditis, the inflammation and infection of the heart muscle, and in extreme cases it can lead to sepsis or infection of the blood.
Generally, the first symptom of infection with parvovirus is lethargy, soon followed by a loss of appetite, diarrhea, and vomiting. Constant diarrhea and vomiting inevitably lead to dehydration. Dehydration is what usually kills dogs, not the virus itself. This is especially true in small puppies. Because blood marrow is not producing blood as it should be, the body suffers a lack of protein and blood loss leads to anemia. Since parvo damages the intestinal lining and weakens the immune system, there is also a likely chance of secondary infection.
Treating Canine Parvovirus
There is no cure for the canine parvovirus itself. Conventional treatment involves alleviating symptoms and helping the body fight the virus. Conventional treatment involves anti-vomiting medication, antibiotics, and even possibly blood transfusions. Many vets will encourage you to hospitalize a puppy who is infected with parvo so that she can receive around-the-clock care. Parvo treatment is expensive and many dogs don't survive.
Thankfully, there is a natural alternative to expensive and often ineffective veterinary treatment for canine parvovirus. Primalix PV® for canine parvovirus blends the exact herbs in the precise formulation to support a dog's immune system so that she can fight the virus herself. Nature’s wisdom provides what your dog needs to rehydrate and prevent continuing dehydration as well as replace protein and prevent anemia from reduced blood cell production. These ancient herbs attack the virus directly and protect the intestinal tract against damage and further infection.Back to top

IngredientsBack to top
Echinacea is a very well-known natural antibiotic. Native Americans have used this herb traditionally for thousands of years to treat a wide range of maladies including scarlet fever, malaria, diphtheria, and blood poisoning. Before antibiotic drugs were imposed, echinacea was the preferred treatment for all kinds of infections. Studies have found it effective against avian flu, swine flu, and the herpes virus. This kind of across-the-board virus-fighting and immune-boosting capacity is invaluable in the fight against canine parvovirus. 1,2,3
Clove (Syzygium aromaticum) is a pungent herb which has been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines to treat nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, as well as being used as a flavoring agent, for many years. Cloves have powerful antioxidant properties and contain eugenol, which has been found in medical trials to have antiviral activity. 4,5
Astragalus has been used for thousands of years in Traditional Chinese Medicine to stimulate and support the immune system. In recent studies, astragalus supplements accelerated the recovery of the immune systems of patients undergoing chemotherapy. Clinical trials have shown that this herb kills viruses like hepatitis and herpes as well as combating secondary infections that tend to be associated with chronic diseases. One study found that astragalus improves the immunity of cells during viral myocarditis, one of the conditions potentially caused by canine parvovirus. Further, this incredible herb increases bone marrow function and helps the body produce new blood cells during anemia, working against the damaging effects of parvovirus. 6,7
Dandelion Root (Taraxacum officinale) is well known for its detoxifying, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. It has been used historically in Europe to control diarrhea. Since the dehydration caused by chronic diarrhea during a parvovirus infection is one of the leading causes of death, this herb’s power to reduce diarrhea is essential to holistic healing.
Burdock Root is used to detoxify the blood, but it also has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It has prebiotic properties to improve digestion and increase overall health. Together, dandelion and burdock are extremely effective for detoxifying the liver and kidneys, which is necessary to help the body recover from a parvovirus infection.
Shiitake Mushroom (Lentinula edodes) is a widely used medicinal mushroom for good reason. This remarkable fungus has a tremendous range of medicinal properties. Shiitake contains lentinan, which has been proven to inhibit the growth of cancer cells, HIV, and leukemia cells. Shiitake is rich in protein to replace the protein that has been lost because of damaged blood marrow. It also boosts the immune system so the body is better able to fight off infection. 8
Sheep Sorrel (Rumex acetosella) is a common weed with uncommon healing abilities. This herb is packed with antioxidants and is also an antiviral that will work directly to fight parvo. Sheep sorrel is a diuretic, so it can reduce the hydration your dog loses through diarrhea. This herb works directly to both fight the virus and condition your dog's body to make her more likely to survive.
