    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    This is probably late, but I just found a recipe that I used to treat my puppy's parvo. My dog started showing signs of parvo the day after I took him home. We took him to the vet immediately, who confirmed it with a diagnosis. However, the fee to treat the disease was way too much for my...

  8. Dogs carrying Parvo?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
