Help Our Puppy Beat Parvo
We found our little guy about two months ago wandering in the busy street outside of our apartment. He was tiny, too young to be away from his momma & scared. No one ever claimed him, so we took him in to be part of our family.
A couple days ago our little guy started feeling under the weather, so we brought him to the vet. We feared the worst, and we were right. He was diagnosed with Parvovirus.
The in-hospital treatment was going to be incredibly expensive and was unfortunately not an option for us. Instead we were able to get all the things we need to try treatment at home. Taking this route was still very expensive, and there is a good chance Wicket will continue to require treatment after this. If he needs hospitalization it could cost anywhere between $1800-$2200. We are both young artists and have very little money to spare, but our Wicket is the apple of our eye and we will do anything and everything we can to make sure he gets through this.
If you can donate even $10 it will be a great help. We just want our little guy to get better. He is such a love bug and far too young to find out if all dogs go to heaven.
We bought him some special kibble food that is gluten-free and grain free, to make the transition back to hard food as smooth on his tummy as possible.
He is energetic and terrorizing us like he did before he got sick. We've had to keep him inside and he is definitely starting to show some signs of cabin fever.
Saturday we will be taking him to the vet for a, hopefully, final visit.
We will be taking him back to the vet on Saturday to have him checked up. Hopefully he will be parvo free.
Thanks again everyone who has contributed! It has been such a blessing.
We still have more than half of the home treatments to go, but things definitely seem to be moving in the right direction.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us so far, we appreciate each of you so much!
I know what it's like to have sick animals. Gatorade will help with parvo. You have to pour it down their throat little at a time but it will work!
Great news! Sounds as though you caught it in time and are following the vet's directions wonderfully! Keep up the good, loving work. So glad he's on the right track -- hope you can keep him on it. :-)
