Q. Are Parvaid or Vibactra Plus only good for sick animals or can I use them as a prevention for pups going to homes and being exposed to all sorts of viruses and potential stress?
Cindy,

We have a litter of 14 black and tan bloodhounds that were supplemented with Ed's amazing formula, they look fantastic at 3 weeks old. All sizes of pups are consistent, coats shinny like minks and puppies are very healthy and content. We ordered Ed's DVD Whelping Puppies and educated ourselves on his excellent level of expert knowledge on newborns. We did not lose one pup. We are extremely grateful for Ed taking his time to put a DVD together with so much amazing information. We are going to order two the stainless steel feeding saucers today. Before placing the order my question to you is, should we start the Parvaid or Vibactra Plus in the formula and then with the raw hamburger meat diet in a few days. I thought it would be a good idea to have new owners of pups continue with the drops. Are the two products only good for sick animals or can I use them as a prevention for pups going to homes and being exposed to all sorts of viruses and potential stress?

A. Hi,

Congratulations on the puppies, fourteen! Wow. :)

You can use the Parvaid and Vibactra plus as a preventative for parvo, etc but I think it's best administered with the dropper directly to each pup (as opposed to using it in formula or solid food), so you are sure each pup gets the correct dose

I've used these products with puppies that have non specific diarrhea with good results. I think it would be a great thing to have on hand, especially with such a large litter.

If you love your dog, you need to read this book! It will change the way you view the health of your pet. I can tell you this from experience. Feeding commercial dog food since 1950's, I became more and more concerned about exactly what I was forcing my dogs to live on. When I did a little research, I became very critical of commercial dog food companies.
