    I just want to say you got VERY lucky. In defense of Banfield Pet Hospital I just want to say, having been a veterinary technician for 16 years, I can tell you parvo is a VERY dangerous disease and NO guarantee can ever be given. At both clinics I worked for-we went with a standard response of, "if you're dog makes it 5 days, it usually has a superb chance of pulling through". It's a VERY "iffy" disease, to say the least. It's not the medication that is given to the dog so much as it is giving them IV fluids and the right meds in order to keep the dog alive long enough for it's body's own immunity to fight off the disease. I'm very happy your dog pulled through-I hope you will always remember to vaccinate and keep babies inside until they are old enough to fight those diseases on their own!
