Default The worst has happened :-(

After a frantic night trying to get a vet to see Toby and Roxy, we finally got them into a vet at 7:30am this morning.
Both have a strain of Parvo.

Toby is doing ok as he has had all his shots.
Roxy on the other hand has a fight on her hands. Being 10weeks old her shots had not taken effect yet (it takes 14 days after the shots)

Parvo is ramped in our town at the moment, and i feel like i have failed my pups.
My partner took them to the vet as it was in the next town and i stayed at home with the kids. The vet (who is a very nice man) has said Toby is sick but he is ok, he gave him a few needles and placed him in a cage.

Roxy he said is the worry. He gave her some needles aswell and when he went to take her temp (up her bottom) there was blood. He said that this afternoon and tomorrow will be the test.
My partner Jen said if there is no chance of her surviving to put her to sleep as she does not want her to be in pain. The vet said no, he will not put her to sleep as he thinks she will pull through.

We are all waiting for 3pm so we can ring to see how they are.
Please keep them in your thoughts.

Thanks
Nic

Oh, that is scary to hear. You did what you could, they both had their shots. It is not your fault that Roxie's had not kicked in. It is very rampart here where I live, too. I am sorry for your pups and pray that they will be home all better soon.

Oh no! I hope they will be alright! Parvo is a scary thing, my childhood pup got it, but he pulled through, and I kind of feel like your Toby is a fighter. I also know you take good care of your pups so my money's on Roxy too! I'll say a prayer for ya'll.

We just had word that Toby is doing ok. He is drinking and is only off colour. Roxy on the other hand, they have had to put her on a drip. They said to call in he morning to see how they are going. My partner in heartbroken as Roxy is her puppy. We are not religious but we are praying like crazy.

I am glad Toby is doing good and I hope little Roxy can pull thru as well.
Parvo can live for months in the feces in the yard and on the bedding or other exposed ares. I would make sure to disinfect everything with a bleach solution which works the best to kill the virus. Hopefully your vet will give you some tips on getting rid of the virus in your home..

I am so sorry to hear about the pups. Parvo is so dangerous and spreads so easily. Thank goodness Toby is showing significant improvement.. I will be sending up healing prayers for both him and little Roxy. Please keep us updated on the situation. It is frightening to know that there is obviously a serious outbreak of the virus in your area.
