Greetings petlanders, I've been looking for a day to start a diary for my two boys but i always don't but today it's a must lol.
Murphy is a boerboel, he was so hairy and had no wrinkles at the early stage but i promised him I'll do my best in feeding which i must say "worked". He's currently 2yrs+. I've stored pictures to share the previous moments with petlanders here. follow us and be entertained.

While gustaf is a German shepherd born in August 2017, he's currently 7months old. His coat and appearance has changed a lot since when i got him till date.... Gustaf is a very active dog.

My aunt was a boerboel breeder( no Kennel). She does her breeding in a small way just to get puppies, sale them off and make some cash. In 2015 we had a litter of 6 puppies and due to my aunt's condition, she wasn't able to properly market the pups so i did the marketing for her and every pup was sold except Murphy lol. Nobody wanted to pick him because he was (kinda runt) hairy, short and not as big as his litter mates, my aunt gave Murphy to me as a reward of all the puppies I've been helping her market/sell and that was how Murphy came into my life.


Fast forward to six months Murphy was beginning to gain weight and also changing both in coat, size and look... He fed mostly on chicken, tin foods and milk and behold good things began to manifest.

I think since the diary is all about my two boys I've to skip to September 2017 so Gustaf will also be included

Two days after Gustaf arrived, i noticed his poop was kinda reddish/watery though no sign of weakness, I overlooked it the first two days thinking the reddish poop was as the result of the muddy sand he picked. I woke up the next morning (around 5am) to go check up on gustaf only to find some greenish yellow smelly poop littered inside his cage. I waited for day to break before taking him to the vet's place, the first vet i took him to asked me if the stool is watery? I answered yes only for her to tell me that my dog has parvo virus and she doesn't have the drugs to treat him so i should take it to another place OMG i wanted to cry cry at that moment thinking my dog would die but nope he survived, the devil is a big liar grin

I took Gustaf home and then decided to do the treatment by myself, I google online and also got some help from people on Nairaland here telling me what to get and how to do the parvo treatment.


I bought each and everything i was told to buy including;
Antibiotics
Diastop suspension
Oral b salt
Drip
Palm kennel oil
Multivitamins
Glucose
Syringe
Toothbrush etc...

Treating parvo wasn't really easy for me but thanks goodness everything went fine and Gustaf rose again cheesy

At 3months gustaf was already totally free from parvo but the virus badly damaged his system which made him look lean for weeks, I seeked for help from many people and i must say the help really came, thanks to OLISAFINCY he was with me all this while and he lectured me on all i needed to know about gsd both the type of food they need and all that.

That's gustaf's pic at 3months with floppy ears lol

At 13weeks old gustaf's ears were begging to erect which made him look more cute and mean at the same time, he was getting back in shape after battling with parvo virus

(the other dog in the background is a pup my dad brought home rott mix).

I then switched gustaf's feeding to how i fed Murphy, I've a way of doing my feeding and i bet any dog would look good if i feed it.


His feeding includes;

Raw meat
Dried fish
Raw dog milk
Tin/can food for puppies
Grinded soya beans mixed with fried groundnut and millet

Boss don't feed him raw soya. Cos soya beans could be poisonous. Cook it. You can prepare it like semo.

Your thread is interesting and educative. Please continue! I m impressed you could treat parvo yourself.

Your food combination is awesome although I have reservations as regards feeding raw meat.

Yup someone told me that before so i now use the method (sometimes)

I prepare mine to be as watery as pap but slightly ticker sometimes

Then other times i mix the soya beans with liquid milk and awara (not everyone will know it), dilute with hot water then serve.
