What Is Parvo Virus: Parvo Tea Recipe

We do NOT recommend Pedialyte for dogs with Parvo

We do NOT recommend Pedialyte for dogs that have Parvo because in our experience (we’ve dealt with over 5,630 cases), it can result in additional vomiting, and that’s not what you need at all. The Parvo Tea Recipe is a much better and safer means of hydrating your sick dog.

We do NOT recommend Chicken, or other poultry products, for dogs with Parvo

We NEVER recommend chicken, turkey or other poultry- or fowl-based products for Parvo dogs because of the risk of dangerous bacteria (e.g. campylobacter, e.coli, salmonella). This applies to any form of poultry, whether it’s cooked, raw, baby food, in soup or broth, organic.

We do NOT recommend Gatorade for dogs with Parvo

We do NOT recommend Gatorade for dogs with Parvo as we have found that it can cause vomiting, and additional vomiting is something you can do without. The Parvo Tea Recipe is a much safer way to hydrate your sick dog.

We do NOT recommend Eggs for dogs with Parvo

We NEVER recommend eggs for dogs with Parvo for the same reason we don’t recommend poultry-based products – i.e. the risk of harmful bacteria. This particularly applies to raw eggs, although cooked eggs can be dangerous too.

We do NOT recommend Rice for dogs with Parvo

Even though rice is a well-known remedy for dealing with diarrhea, we do NOT recommend rice of any type (e.g. brown, white, pilaf, wild, jasmine, basmati, calrose) for dogs with Parvo as it is too hard for their damaged digestive systems to digest, and it can, at worst, cause a fatal blockage.

Move your mouse over these images for more information about these banned products.

Warning: This Parvo Tea Recipe is purely meant to be used as a stopgap measure to keep sick dogs going until your products arrive. It will prevent puppy and dog dehydration, but it will not be enough to treat the Parvo virus itself – for that, you will need one of our ParvoBuster Parvo Treatment Kits. Use our proprietary Parvo Product Calculator tool to determine exactly what you need.

Once you buy your Parvo treatment kit from us, we will email you a much more detailed Emergency Action Plan that will tell you exactly how to use this tea, in conjunction with various other emergency measures you can take to keep your sick doggie going.

Warning: Do not use this recipe with other treatments outside of the products we sell if their ingredients are unknown. Doing so could be fatal to your dog. Always check with a knowledgeable or qualified individual before combining treatments.

Parvo Emergency Tea Ingredients (Version 7.3)

The following ingredients can be found in most major supermarkets that have a pharmacy section:

2 cupsA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of Oatmeal Water, which is chemical-free and therefore makes a perfect natural electrolyte fluid.

To make the Oatmeal Water, you will need half a cupA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of oatmeal, one teaspoon of salt (sea salt or table salt, or whatever you have, will work fine), and one third of a cupA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of either maple syrup or pancake syrup (preferably organic).

Oatmeal Water
2 teabags of chamomile tea (a good source is Celestial Seasonings’ Chamomile or Bigelow’s Cozy Chamomile). THE TEA MUST NOT CONTAIN ANY CAFFEINE. Chamomile Tea
2 tea bags of herbal Spearmint with Peppermint tea (a good source is Celestial Seasonings’ Mint Magic or Bigelow’s Mint Medley). If you can’t find this particular mixture, find spearmint and peppermint teas separately and use 1 tea bag of each. If only one is available (e.g. Spearmint) use 2 tea bags. THE TEA MUST NOT CONTAIN ANY CAFFEINE. Bigelow's Mint Medley
2 capsules of Echinacea. (This can normally be located in the vitamin section near the pharmacy.) Echinacea
1 teaspoon of either maple syrup or pancake syrup (preferably organic). Pancake Syrup or Maple Syrup
McCormick Italian Seasoning, which contains Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Rosemary, Sage, Savory and Thyme. If you cannot get this particular brand, the ingredients you should try to locate are Basil, Oregano, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme. (This can normally be found in the cooking / spice section.) Italian Seasoning
250mg of ginger. This would also be better in the veggie-cap format, from the vitamin section of the store, but if you can’t find that, you can always buy ground ginger from the cooking / spice section, in which case you should just use a sprinkle or two. Ginger Capsules or Ground Ginger
250mg of MSM. It doesn’t matter whether the MSM includes either Glucosamine or Chondroitin. Note that this ingredient is optional, so if you can’t find it, don’t worry. MSM
250mg of White Willow Bark, if your dog has a fever (i.e. a temperature of 103F or higher). Note that this ingredient is optional, so if you can’t find it, don’t worry. White Willow Bark
Note: You may come across other companies providing a Parvo Emergency Tea recipe who instruct you to include garlic in the Parvo Tea recipe as well. We recommend that you omit this ingredient, as our research and experience show that there are a number of dogs who will suffer from increased diarrhea and/or vomiting when the garlic is included, and this is clearly something you should avoid when your dog has Parvo.
Hot Tip!Hot Tip!

When straining the Parvo Tea, one of our customers, Julie, recommends using cheesecloth to get rid of any remaining bits of herbs, etc.

 

Thank you for your emergency medical tea because my puppy is doing so much better.

Preparing The Parvo Emergency Tea

Measuring Cups

Measuring Cups

Use Accurate Measuring Devices!

It is important that you measure out all of the different ingredients accurately.

We therefore recommend that you use measuring cups and measuring spoons, as appropriate (i.e. measuring cups for the water and Oatmeal Water, and measuring spoons for the salt and pancake or maple syrup).

Note that, when you order a Home Parvo Treatment Kit, you will need to know how to use an eye dropper
Using An Eye Dropper To Count
Out Individual Droplets
 as well.)

Please move your mouse over the two images to the left and you will see exactly what sizes of measuring cups and spoons you will need.

Measuring Spoons

Measuring Spoons

  1. Make the Oatmeal Water:
    1. Boil half a gallonA US gallon is equivalent to 128 fluid ounces, which is therefore 16 cups. (i.e. eight cupsA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces.) of water.
    2. Add the half cupA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of oatmeal, one teaspoon of salt and one third cupA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of pancake syrup or maple syrup, and give it a really good stir, to mix it all in.
    3. Remove it from the heat.
    4. Let it sit and steep for 20 minutes.
    5. Strain off the oatmeal, but don’t throw it away – keep it in the refrigerator for later, as most dogs love oatmeal, and it’s good for them.
    6. The liquid that is left is the Oatmeal Water.
  2. Heat 2 cupsA cup is a measure used extensively within the USA and is equivalent to 8 fluid ounces. of Oatmeal Water until it is hot, but DO NOT BOIL IT.
  3. Add the following ingredients to the heated Oatmeal Water:
    1. 2 tea bags of chamomile tea
    2. 2 tea bags of mint tea
    3. 1 teaspoon of pancake syrup or maple syrup
    4. The contents of 2 capsules of Echinacea
    5. 6 sprinkles of the Italian Seasoning (but if you couldn’t find this, then one sprinkle each of the herbs you could locate)
    6. 250mg of ginger
    7. 250mg of MSM (if you could find it)
    8. 250mg of White Willow Bark (if you could find it)

  6. Remove any non-liquid ingredients (e.g. tea bags, and any bits of herbs that may not have fully dissolved).

 

Once we had given him a few doses of the Emergency Tea, he miraculously started showing signs of improvement. He had previously been off-balance and disoriented, but now was starting to get back to normal.

Debbie & Sheila, Alabama

 

Administering The Emergency Tea

As per the following chart, give one dose, wait 15 minutes, give another dose, then give a dose every hour (and that does mean day and night) after that.

Animal Weight Parvo Emergency Tea
Teaspoons/Tablespoons ml/cc
Under 3 lbs. 1 Teaspoon 5
4 – 10 lbs. 2 Teaspoons 10
11 – 20 lbs. 1 Tablespoon 15
21 – 30 lbs. 2 Tablespoons 30
31 – 40 lbs. 3 Tablespoons 45
41 – 50 lbs. 4 Tablespoons 60
51 – 60 lbs. 5 Tablespoons 75
61 – 70 lbs. 6 Tablespoons 90
71 – 80 lbs. 7 Tablespoons 105
81 – 90 lbs. 8 Tablespoons 120
91 – 100 lbs. 9 Tablespoons 135
Note: Add one additional tablespoon (or 15ml/cc) to the 9 tablespoons for each 10 lbs of body weight over 100 lbs.
A Typical Feeding Syringe (This One Is For A Dog Up To 10lbs)

This is what a standard feeding syringe, available from most good pet stores (e.g. Petco), looks like, but please ensure you buy the right size for your dogs, as per the table above, and also remember to buy a separate one for each dog that you need to treat, to avoid cross-contamination.

The tea is most effective if given warm. You can either run the oral feeding syringe (i.e. a syringe without a needle) under warm tap water, or you can also put the recommended dose of tea in a small glass and place it in a larger bowl containing hot water and allow the tea to warm up. Do not microwave the tea.

Caution: Over-hydrating can be put a strain on your dog’s heart, so if your puppy is on IV fluids, you should reduce the IV drip to half the dose and give only half the amount of tea; if you are using subcutaneous fluids, then you should wait for whatever has already been injected to be absorbed before giving the tea.

Bonus Emergency Measure

If your dog is not eating, which is usual with Parvo, then you should dab maple syrup or pancake syrup (preferably organic) on your dog’s gums every hour. Please make sure your fingers are ultra-clean, and that you dab the pancake syrup or maple syrup on very gently so as not to hurt your dog. Another option is to use a Q Tip to apply the pancake syrup or maple syrup.

This will help to boost your dog’s blood sugar levels, which will start to drop as soon as he stops eating.

Additional Emergency Measures

Once you place your order, we will send you, via email, vital additional emergency pre-treatment measures that will complement and supplement the Parvo Tea and that will address the severe risk of hypoglycemia (which is especially dangerous with really tiny dogs) that is caused by your dog not eating.

It is important that you use the emergency measures in the Parvo Treatment Guide that you will receive, after placing your order, as these are different to those shown above, and the dosages are different too.

    thank you for the wonderful tea, i treated my puppies for almost a week, my vet said its too late but i insisted on using your recipe and it worked, after a week my puppies are eating and drinking on their own and are back on their daily playful antics………………

  2. Rae and Mark Says:

    Mark,

    Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write. We are, of course, delighted that your puppies are doing well, although we have to say that it’s rare that the Parvo Emergency Tea is enough by itself. Still, it seems you were lucky, which is fine by us!

    Your experience with the vet is typical, sadly, and it’s always good to see people stand up for their pets – many vets give up far too easily.

    If you have any photos of your puppies, we’d love to see them.

  3. Zae Says:

    Thank you so much for this recipe, our dog wouldn’t have made it without you!
    Its been about a year now since he had parvo and hes as healthy and happy as ever! Thank you!

  4. Rae and Mark Says:

    Zae,

    Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write – we really appreciate that.

    And, of course, we are delighted that your dog pulled through and that we were able to help.

    Best wishes,

    Rae & Mark

  5. Rae & Mark Says:

    I wish I would of known about your site when my puppies contracted the parvo virus. They were only 16 weeks old. I went to the vet and all they could do was give my baby an IV, they said that they coulndt do anything more. Its was so hard to deal with my baby being sick. I have 2 other puppies along with my sick one. Though only one other one ended up contracting the virus. All I could do for them was to make my own remidies and try to do something for them to eat. So I fed them the water in the tuna fish and sometimes gave them a little tuna fish if they wanted more or were hungry. After about the second day I researched it on the internet and found parvaid. It was a miricle. After about 4 to 5 days they started eating and feeling better. It was hard to bare that I thought I was going to loose my babys. But they are alive and well and now they are 7 months old and happy, along with very energetic. I am very astatic that there are some remadies that help to protect our beloved family members.
    My fiances son just called us due to his puppy coming down with the disease, so I looked it up and gave him the recipe until he can purchase the parvaid. Hope all goes well and will keep you posted.
    Thanks and best wishes to all
    NIcole

  6. Rae and Mark Says:

    Nicole,

    Thanks for your feedback. We are, of course, delighted that you were able to you were able to save your puppies, and sorry that your fiancé’s son’s puppy now has the virus.

    Also, although we used to sell Parvaid, as part of our Gold Value Pack, we can no longer recommend using just this product by itself. If you check out this site, you’ll see why, and you’ll also find our current recommendations: http://www.BuyParvaid.com/

    Whatever you decide to do, we hope his puppy pulls through.

  7. Angel Says:

    Just wanted to say thank you very much for publishing this recipe! It saved my dogs life! He’s a very small and very rambunctious dog, he was down for 2 1/2 days before I realized he wasn’t eating at all, he couldn’t even stand alone! I found this recipe and went straight to the store to buy ingredients, which only cost a little less than $20! Came home and administered it as directed and in 12 hours he slowly began to eat. The next morning when I got up, all of his dogfood was gone and he’s running around the house! I truly believe he was only a few hours from death when I started giving him the tea, it was such a remarkable turnaround!

  8. Rae and Mark Says:

    Angel,

    Thanks for your feedback, and we are glad to hear that your dog is doing well.

    We have to say you were very lucky – our Parvo Emergency Tea recipe is only designed to help keep sick dogs hydrated and to calm down the vomiting. It is really rare for the tea alone to save a dog that has Parvo, which is why it is risky not to also get a Parvo Treatment kit to complement the home remedies.

  9. Jeanine Says:

    Thanks for the info! We also had to consider the bleaching/cleaning methods and found that our fabric couches and some clothing were not bleachable. I found a product online called Odoban, but had a hard time finding it locally. All other products had to be ordered online and then we’d have to wait for them. I called Ace Hardware as they were listed as retailers who carried Odoban and after hearing my story, the manager immediately ordered it for me and called when it came in on the truck. It was a great product and a gallon was enough to share with the other families that were exposed to the Parvo virus.

  10. Rae and Mark Says:

    Jeanine,

    The problem with Odoban is that it is NOT rated to kill the Canine Parvovirus. This information came directly from the manufacturer – here is a copy of their response to our enquiry:

    ====================================

    Thank you for consulting with us at Clean Control.

    We do not have any products available to kill the Parvo Virus.

    OdoBan is effective against the following pet viruses:

    Avian Influenza virus, Avian Infectious Bronchitis virus, Pseudorabies virus, Canine Distemper virus, Newcastle’s Disease virus, Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis (FVR), Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), Feline Invectious Virus (FIP), Rabies, and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)

    ====================================

    We therefore cannot recommend its use for getting rid of Parvo.

  11. Dixieann Says:

    Thank you so much for the info, I will be trying this receipe first thing tomorrow as I only today found this site. I am feeling much more positive reading that my dog has a chance of making it. I have a pure breed Lab that is very ill, close to death and we are not ready to lose him therefore I am very grateful for this post.

  12. Rae and Mark Says:

    Dixieann,

    We hope your Lab pulls through, but please note that the Parvo Tea recipe is not designed to treat Parvo – it will help prevent dehydration and it can calm down te vomiting too. A Parvo Treatment Kit is what you really need, and that comes with our free Parvo Treatment Guide, which contains additional home remedies over and above the tea recipe.

  13. Dixieann Says:

    Hello again, I feel like all my life has gone out from me, I just went to check on the pupyp and he is dead. I went ot bed so hopeful for him last night. I feel so terrible right now, I don’t know what I should do, my kids cried all day yesterday thinking he wasn’t going to make it, but I found another site where someone gave chicken soup broth and today I hoping that would work until I saw your site last night.
    I have another dog a lab / german shepherd mix is also showing signs the only difference is he is drinking on his own so I don’t know if to give him Parvo treatment Kit you offered.

  14. Rae and Mark Says:

    Dixieann,

    We are very sorry to hear about your puppy.

    We would never recommend chicken broth for a dog with Parvo (or any product containing poultry such as chicken, turkey, duck, including eggs) because of the risk of bacterial contamination (e.g. from Campylobacter).

    If your other dog is showing symptoms, which is not unreasonable given he is probably now exposed to the virus, then we would recommend getting a Parvo Treatment Kit immediately.

  15. Dixieann Says:

    I know she is because the symtoms are very similar, she is not vomiting nor does she have diarrhea, but she is very letargic. I will get the Parvo Treatment Kit . I made the tea you suggested but how long do I offer the tea. Should I continue to bottle feed her water and will you guide me through this process I am clueless. I have taken my dog to the vet she received a IV pak On Tuesday and antibiotics, he advised me to bring he in again on Wednesday to run some more test. She was tested negative to parvo, but they can’t explain why she is sick. I have not returned to the vet, therefore I really need your help.

    Thanks Dixie

  16. Rae and Mark Says:

    Dixie,

    Is she still eating and/or drinking by herself? Lack of appetite (and not drinking), as well as lethargy, are usually the first symptoms of Parvo – before the vomiting and diarrhea.

    Until you place an order, you should continue giving her the Parvo Tea once an hour; after you place an order, you will be able to download our Parvo Treatment Guide, which contains other home remedies in addition to the tea, so you will then be giving her something every half hour. We know that’s a gruelling schedule, but that’s just how Parvo must be dealt with.

    The Parvo Treatment Guide contains everything you need to know and do, with a dosage chart you can print off and use to help you keep track of what you’ve done.

    If you do have questions, we provide email support and try to respond as quickly as we can.

  17. Dixieann Says:

    Great news, I did administer the emergency tea and oatmeat water and sure enough like the other comments my dog started showing symtoms of being more alert. Then as the Prvo arrived we give it to her and within hours she ate a small meal. I am so thankful for your advice I was not willing to lose my pup until I exhausted all efforts trying to save her.
    She is not running aroung but drinking and eating on her own. Even got a little spoilt during this time as well but it’s ok

    Thank You Again
    Dixie, Virginia

  18. Michelle Says:

    I feel sick at how irresponsible this website is! You should be reported. If your dog has parvo, TAKE IT TO THE VET – this is what responsible pet ownership is about – not making your own homemade concoction. If your child had a life threatening virus, would you make it a cup of tea?
    Outraged.

  19. Rae and Mark Says:

    Michelle,

    If you have thousands of dollars to spare (or even $150 for a bag of salty water), and you don’t mind a 50% success rate (compared to the 90% that our own customers typically experience), then fine, take your dog to the vet.

    But what about the thousands of people who cannot afford to take their sick dog to the vet’s, or those who prefer to live a chemical-free lifestyle?

    Would you prefer that these people do nothing and just let their dogs die because people like you would deny them a cheaper and more effective solution?

    The products we sell, and the home remedies such as this Parvo Tea Recipe, have helped saved thousands of dogs from Parvo, all without needing to go anywhere near one of your precious vets.

    Tell us, how many dogs have you helped save from this virus, and have you even tried using our Parvo Tea Recipe?

    If you haven’t, then go away and bother somebody else, or even better, do some serious research about the dangers of traditional chemical-based treatments (yes, including vaccinations!) and then see if you feel the same way about vets (and doctors).

    What is really outrageous, and irresponsible pet ownership, is the fact that you blindly let people inject and administer all sorts of toxic chemicals into your pet without any real thought or concern about the problems these products cause – chronic inflammation, early-onset cancer, a slow poisoning with cheap, commercial mass-market dog food, and vaccinations that cause the very disease they’re meant to prevent and/or kill animals.

    Did you know that even the government admits that vaccinations are unsafe? If you don’t believe us, then at least go and read this one article, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be concerned enough about the pets you say you love to go and find out more:

  20. Christina verdugo Says:

    I agree with this website, at least this tea gives me hope until I can take him to the vet. The vet we see won’t even evaluate him without a cash payment first and my puppy is in bad shape. A friend recommended this recipe. I am greatful for this recipe. I’ll post again his condition so that the ignorant person claiming we r harming our animals can see that we truly do love our dogs, Not everyone has 1000 plus for vet costs.

  21. Rae and Mark Says:

    Christina,

    We hope that our Parvo Tea Recipe helps and that your doggie pulls through.

  22. Dixieann Says:

    I am now returning to refer a friend to this website and I am in shock by the comment posted above. You see I did take my dog to the vet like most caring animal lovers do, but guess what after being sent home with an Iv fluid pack two days later my dog was dead. This website offered me a chance to try something else and it worked, today our second dog Olive is alive because of these folks willing to share their knowlege and I am truly grateful.
    Christina Just hang in there be patient and very gentle your pet will pull through if you follow up with the emergency tea and the Parvo Treatment.

  23. Rae and Mark Says:

    Dixieann, thank you for your supportive comments, and we are, of course, delighted that Olive made it.

  24. Molly Says:

    I definately agree with this web site. We just had one of our dog died this passed Tuesday because the vet wouldn’t treat him because I didn’t have $800 to $1200 to pay for a 3 days stay over, and I was told that there were NO guarantee that he would even make it thru. We have 2 other puppies that tested positive for the parvo virus, again No help from the vet. Ended up payin $170 for the exam, just for them to tell me without the money up front they couldn’t do anything. Luckily I came across this page, hurried to the store and got all the ingredients. After only 7hrs of the emergency tea treatments the puppies are up and running. The Parvaid and Vibactra Plus should get here tomorrow. I will keep you posted. You might have just save our babies. Thank You Again.

  25. Rae and Mark Says:

    Molly, sadly, your story is all too common. We’re obviously sorry to hear you lost a puppy, and hope your other two pull through. Please let us know how things go.

  26. Dixieann Says:

    just a quick follow up… my dog Olive just gave birth to 10 pups, but this all won’t be possible if it weren’t for your site that initially saved her life. I must post a pictures as well.

  27. Rae and Mark Says:

    Dixieann,

    Thanks for the update. We are, of course, delighted that Olive and her pups are doing well.

  28. Sasha Riggs Says:

    I realize it’s a bit late but I’m just becoming aware of your website. My dog is 11, doesn’t have parvo, but she has other issues…Fat deposits, arthritis and other ailments that older dogs acquire as they age. She is now dehydrated, as I have read the dehydration symptoms. I have to admit, I’ve gone to the vet and am very disappointed. The meds they have prescribed for her were simply taking us in a circle. Antibiotics were causing nausea so we had to give her meds for the nausea. The nausea was causing her not to drink or eat and were causing her to be lethargic. More meds were prescribed to alleviate her from being lethargic and so on and so forth. I have just given her the tea, as I am at a loss. NO MORE MEDS……UUGGHHH I just gave her the first two doses of the tea and she is breathing normal and seems as if she is FINALLY resting peacefully without the rough breathing. I will do what it takes as I’m not ready to give her up. She has helped me keep my sanity through the roughest time of my life. I am here for her as she was there for me. The May 1, 2012 comment submitted by Michelle is an outrage in and of itself. She is obviously a vet that is losing out on revenue. She really needs to get over it, as the majority of businesses are experiencing the same outcome. REAL ANIMAL LOVERS conduct the research needed to ensure their best friends, sounding boards and unconditional love buddies are forever safe and out of the danger zone. I still owe my vet over $400, but at least they allow payment plans…hmmmmmm I wonder why. I’m sure its for folks like Michelle. Thank you so much for developing this website. If I needed additional information regarding other remedies, can you please provide me with a basic question answer website? (so sorry for the lengthy response) :( You guys are awesome!!!
    Sincerely, Sasha

    Sasha,

    Firstly, thanks for taking the time to send us your story.

    Secondly, and even more so, we’re glad that the Parvo Emergency Tea is helping. This little home remedy has helped so many people that were at their wits’ end in a full-on Parvo crisis as well as other people who like yourself found out the hard way that prescription drugs have many side-effects and adding more prescription drugs will not solve the problem. If anything, this will just make matters worse in most cases.

    Anyway, our full response is somewhat long, so we’ve written a new post which you can find here.
