Here is the email the breeder sent me:


I want to let you know so it's not a surprise later. Your baby is here at the hospital with what looks like parvo:( They were vaccinated one week ago but apparently her maternal antibodies neutralized the vaccine and she is a "breakthrough case". I'm doing everything in our power for her and this one other puppy who is much more sick:( They are so tiny, it's hard to predict the outcome. I'll try to keep you posted daily. Saturday she wouldn't eat and had vomiting and diarrhea. We have that all stopped today but she's still refusing food completely which is not abnormal. The more sick puppy has been here since Wed and still can't keep food down so he's gotten two plasma transfusion so far. Hopefully your little girl doesn't get so sick. I just want to tell you, in case you've never dealt with parvo. That once they make it through the disease, they are back to perfectly normal. It's like really bad stomach flue that they have to work through. Again, I'll keep you posted on how she is. No news is certainly good news though:) Send any questions and keep her in your prayers.



This is terrible! I hope she will be ok. Im so worried now. :cry:

I have delt with Parvo with puppies before never chihuahua puppies. It's hard but when they do pull though they never relapse and they are perfectly normal.


You are in my prayers and so is your little baby.

Thank you all very much. I just hope that she will be ok. I dont know what I would do if something happened to her. It's crazy, I've never even met her and I love her already. :sad10:
They sure do touch a part of your heart that you just can't explain. We all understand what you mean when you know there soon to be yours you feel a bond to them and that is connected with love. I hope she pulls though for you hunny.

Poor little one... I will keep her in my prayers. Parvo is such a terrible illness, but sometimes they do recover with enough intense treatment (IV fluids, electrolytes, blood transfusion). It sounds like the breeder is going the full route for treatment which is wonderful. Lets hope the plasma transfusion works. Please keep us posted.

My little boy, Tucker, had Parvo at 1.2 pounds when he was 7 weeks old. He spent 8 days and nights at the vet clinic, and with lots of prayer and wonderful care, he made it! :) I pray that your furbaby pulls through.

We have two toy-breeds at our hospital now that just finally finished their course of parvo and are in great health. The difficulty in treating them is managing their hydration (due to vomitting) but in toys you have to worry about hypoglycemia, since part of the treatment regimen is to withold food (to prevent vommitting). I'm sure the vets know what they are doing! We'll keep your puppy in our thoughts.
