Our sweet rescue pup was diagnosed with parvo. The rescue had no idea and we are trying so hard to save him. We just lost our Abby & can’t lose him too. Any help is so so appreciated.
Just got a call from the doc - he is eating on his own! He is also more energetic and hasn't thrown up all day! Let's pray he gets to come home tomorrow!!
We just lost our sweet 11 year old dachshund, Abby, to kidney/liver failure, Cushings, and pancreatitis on June 3rd. Having her by my side since she was 5 weeks old, that was an extremely hard hit. But the heaviest hit was the absence of her from our home. Once we accepted we would not ever have her again, we decided we would bring another pup into our home that would be our dog for the rest of its life.
For 2 weeks I searched for the right pup. I curiously checked Craigslist, but would shut that down because I wanted to work with a rescue who would ensure good health, neuter, and vaccinations with the adoption fee. We found sweet Atlas, and within hours of sending in our application were approved to adopt. The rescue ensured that he would be fully vetted and have his surgery within the week, but we could bring him home early because she was running out of room at the rescue.
And man did he fit right in. He is exactly what we were looking for.
Unfortunately, we noticed Sunday that he was extremely lethargic. He was throwing up periodically, and I messaged the rescue in the afternoon asking if he had been exposed to parvo. She said not that she knew of, but later texted me that he had been. We immediately brought him to the vet, where he was tested positive for parvo.
We were given the option to return him to the rescue, but do not believe in giving up on our animals so easily, even if we had only just adopted him. Atlas is our boy, and we will do whatever we need to save him.
After the hit of Abby's medical crisis and then passing, Gavin's wisdom teeth surgery, and expecting a baby in December, we are financially (and emotionally) exhausted. We would love and appreciate any help covering these treatment expenses, as well as having to replace all of his toys and supplies so they aren't infected with parvo. We even threw out our couch and all of our rugs which he threw up on!
We are so excited to get to bring him home, and so thankful that we caught it just in time. We still need to neuter him as well as fully vet him once he is recovered. This has been a hard hit, but it is part of pet ownership. We are so thankful for our support system!
Thank you so much for everything.
We are now creeping up on day 7 of Atlas' treatment. As of now, he has had no improvement. He is not eating, is severely lethargic, and still is vomiting and experiencing diarrhea. We were hopeful we would be able to take him home this weekend, but that is not going to happen. We are now being charged $250 a day for his treatment. After speaking with some other people, we are going to see if we can possibly transfer him to another, more affordable vet, or possibly attempt at home treatment. We are running so low on funds. We are so exhausted. We are so thankful for the shares and donations. Please continue to share and pray our pup comes home soon!
