Q. My sister dog she's 3 months and she has that virus so what is good for that

Answered By
LINDSEY EDWARDS MVB, BSC, IVCA

A. The best treatment would depend on what virus she has and how she has been affected. In general, we have very few specific treatments and supportive care such as a well balanced food fed a little heated plus a B vitamin tonic, plenty of water and rest in a warm bed will help her to recover her strength alongside any symptomatic treatment she has been prescribed by her vet. Young puppies can commonly develop secondary infections when their immune system is suppressed by a virus so take her back to her vet if she is not responding as well as you were told to expect at her first visit
