My dog were very sick the past weeks, he was diagnosed with canine distemper, now he seems to be good, I mean that he is acting as usual, he's happy, playing with us and eating, but he still have secretion in his eyes and very rarely in his nose. We took them to the vet just to check if he's now ok, but she told us that he will never be healthy, because this virus has no cure. I want to now if that's true?
No. There is no disease that has "no cure." (unless you were born with something like down syndrome and such.) People often say "It has no cure." What this really means is that they just can't cure it themselves. There is no saying your dog won't get over it by himself. Just because humans don't have a cure for it, doesn't mean it's incurable. This is kind of a bad example: Take for instance Ebola. It has "no cure" yet some people got over it themselves. Just because you got it doesn't mean you couldn't cure it. It just means that humans don't have something that will take it away for you. I'm not saying you dog will get over it for sure, i'm just saying that he might. Let's hope for the best. Good luck.
There is no known cure but I believe I helped my dog with Distemper with Vitamin A.
Apparently Distemper is similar to Measles. Measles can be treated in children with Vitamin A.
vitamin A megadoses (200,000 international units (IUs) on each day for two days) lowered the number of deaths from measles in hospitalized children under the age of two years
My dog was so bad that she was walking into walls and skinny from not eating. She's a little under 50 lbs but was closer to 40 lbs. I was sure she was going to die and was trying to get my vet to do the chicken virus treatment.
I gave her 10 8000 IU vitamin A pills with some peanut butter (so she wouldn't spit them out) twice a day for a few days. After about 48 hours, she was looking better and eating. Less than a week later, she was normal again. She now has a facial tick but no other signs of being sick.
If nothing else, the treatment is low cost (about $5 for a bottle of 250 vitamin A pills) and low risk (dogs have no know toxicity level for Vitamin A).
Use my 8000 IU for 40 lbs as a ratio for dogs weighing more or less (i.e. 4 pills for a 20 lb dog and 16 for an 80 lb dog). And give it to them twice a day - once in the morning and once in the evening.
