Secondary infections are a serious threat when dealing with Parvovirus. Intestinal sloughing occurs, leaving the system wide open to bacterial and protozoal infections.

Metronidazole not only helps with intestinal inflammation, but fights off many of the microbes that would attack a compromised digestive tract. Its injectable form can be administered directly through the patient's fluids, remaining unaffected by the nausea that accompanies parvo.
