OT- Parvo

Our little buddy is sitting in the animal hospital now trying to recover from parvo.  He came down with it on Friday.  We called the vet on Sunday and we brought him in to get a shot to stop throwing up, gave us some pills to stop the vomiting and antibotics.  He couldn't keep it down so we took him in to get on an iv.  Right now he is stable, no vomiting or diarrhea since he's been there.  No appetite and won't be able to come home till he does eat.  Vet is more worried about a second infection killing him than parvo at this point because his cbc count was real low.  Please pray that our four legged friend gets better.  he's only 8 months, been a part of our family for 6.

Praying for him make sure u spray bleach all in your yard. My old dog got it, we went through the same thing, we gave him orange gatorade for the electrolytes. Our passed away 2 years later when he got kicked by a cow. :(

As a puppy he's got a long, rough ride :( I hope he gets better soon!

Sending prayers. He will be fine. My uncle adopted a fur baby & she came down with parvo. She recovered from it, but she fried a few brain cells from the fever. She is about 12 yrs old now.

Wow, how scary.  I hope that your dog gets well soon.  Our dog is vaccinated against Parvo, so it isn't a concern for us.

Thanks for the well wishes!  Bear is home and though he's not himself yet, he's better.  Just a matter of time and he will be himself!
