I have a 3 year old female of mixed breed, probably podenco/lab, who had parvo as a puppy. She had a rough time but recovered. I don’t know if it could be relevant but now she goes intermittently lame in one hind leg. I just read your comment, Nayana, about how early to give supplements, so am wondering if it could be early onset arthritis? If so, what oils or herbs can help? She doesn’t seem to want me to put anything on her leg, but will take oils orally very willingly.
Parvo dogs often have left over neurological symptoms, such as occasional lameness. I would offer her oils for nerves, such as peppermint, st Johns wort, maybe rosemary or juniperberry. Perhaps a dose of homeopathic parvo, to clear it once and for all. It’s hard to say what it might be without seeing it, but these are things you could offer and see what she likes.
Hi Nayana! Thank you for your reply. I had always realised there might be some lingering issues. So, I offered the oils you mentioned (except juniper berry, as I didn’t have any.) She chose St Johns Wort. So how often would you give it? She has had 2 drops so far today…one this morning and another this afternoon.
Also, the homeopathic treatments seem to all talk about treating the actual illness, whereas she is more than 2 years on from hers now. Would that still help? Thanks a lot.
