Goodbye Little Dog
This has been a rough week. Our sweet and curious puppy is gone. In spite of intensive veterinary care, he succumbed to parvovirus a few days after joining our family. This horrible virus must have been lurking inside him and the stress of a new home, recent neutering, load of fleas and parasites caused it to take over his little body. When he stopped eating shortly after joining us, the veterinarian thought it was only a reaction to the worming meds he was given right before coming home with us. Puppy was given fluids, anti-nausea meds and antibiotics. He did not improve and within a day it was apparent that he was ill with parvo. He was given intensive care in hopes of seeing him through the worst of this horrible disease. We had such high hopes that he would pull through and live a long and happy life as our beloved dog. It was not to be. Rest in peace, Little Dog. You were very loved.
