9 years ago both of my dachshunds came down with parvo and coccidia. You will know by now or a vet could do a stool culture and confirm if it is indeed parvo. My dogs did not develop all symptoms overnight and you could now be seeing bloody stool or vomit. Either way, you MUST keep them hydrated, using a syringe or in my case, my vet sent home IV fluids for a subcutaneous fluid load regimen. If this is Parvo read everything you can on it as you must be diligent in cleaning your house and not letting anyone with dogs come in and then go home with their shoes as this can be carried easily and spread to other dogs.
My vet worked with me on the price of treatment as I had to treat both Bert and Ernie. I also set up heat lamps in the kitchen to keep them warm as they will chill, but it was late winter when they had it. Again, don't wait to seek answers.

Thinking of your little one.
