Not a vaccine - that exists already. This is a treatment. Currently the treatment for Parvo is strictly palliative care - IV fluids, medication to reduce vomiting. It takes 1 to 2 weeks, and a large percentage still die. With this treatment, puppies are ready to go home in 1 to 2 days.

My husband works for Avianax. There's another site with the same article that includes photos (and he's in some of them).

Here's a link to a video of puppies treated during the early field trials.

I enjoyed seeing that video, Annkh. Fantastic breakthrough, and I hope it will be available in the not-too-distant future.

Your husband must enjoy such rewarding work.

They are in the process of ordering equipment for their production facility, and hope to start production by the end of the year. They still need to do a controlled study in addition to the field trials (this has been in the works for months, I don't know what the holdup is). Luckily it's easier to get USDA approval for animal use than FDA approval for humans!

Yes, DH loves his work!
