Canine parvovirus infection remains to represent a worldwide and commonly occurring infectious disease leading to severe morbidity especially in puppies. The main therapeutic approach is primarily based on symptomatic treatment, especially addressing acute gastrointestinal signs as well as treating and preventing potential sepsis due to bacterial translocation. Besides antibiotic and essential fluid therapy, the use of efficient antiemetic and pain medication is required. In addition, early enteral nutrition should be attempted as this has been shown to be associated with a shorter time to recovery. Modulation of the intestinal microbiome could improve clinical signs and possibly aide in avoiding long-term sequelae such as chronic gastrointestinal disease. Treatment with recombinant feline interferon-omega resulted in a lower mortality and a more rapid improvement of clinical signs in several experimental and clinical studies and thus is considered to be effective.
