Parvaid (now known as Paxxin)
This is a herbal blend that supports dogs who have developed parvo and other viruses. Parvaid is said to have a very high success rate and we have had cases where dogs (vaccinated and un-vaccinated) have died at a vets surgery but the dog whose owner who has bought Parvaid and got their vet to administer that, has survived and made a full recovery.
It can be used as a preventative, but would only be advised for use when you feel you might be having to take your dog into an area where there was a disease threat and use the product for the period of time during that situation. It can be used (using the recommended doseage regime/timetable) over a longer period of time but it's main purpose is for the support of the body when parvo etc has been contracted.
Its sister product, Vibactra Plus, is a companion herbal blend that is another useful tool in your medicine chest and is recommended to be used in conjunction with Parvaid. VibactraPlus is excellent at dealing with digestive upsets and upper respiratory tract infections, and is a natural antibiotic. It also is excellent for dealing with Kennel Cough.
Both of these products are available from the CHC store where you can find a lot more information on them including protocols for dealing with parvo.
Canine Health Concern also has a list of members who keep Parvaid and Vibactra in their medicine chest, since both products have a long shelf life (four years). We have on several occasions called upon our members to rush these herbal blends to other people locally when their dogs or puppies have contracted parvovirus (despite being vaccinated in many cases). Speed is of great importance here – so do please telephone us in an emergency or, better still, consider stocking these lifesavers yourself.
