Our Puppy Has Parvo...

...well dangit.

Nevada, our new Siberian Husky puppy has parvo. Took her to the vet today because she was ill yesterday but today she was lethargic and wouldn't eat or drink.
She has roundworms, hookworms, parvovirus, and a secondary bacterial infection of the gastro-intestinal tract.

The vet gave her a one in four chance of survival.


He said treatment at home, in his 40 some years of experience, does not significantly alter outcome as compared to treatment at the she is on several different meds and oral electrolytes every 30 minutes.

Speaking of that...its about time to give her some more.

Lord, I get that we couldn't have babies...but, seriously, can't we at least keep a stinkin' puppy alive for pete's sake???
More for my husband than for me....he has put sooooo much love into this dog and let his guard down and opened his heart in ways that he couldn't when I was pregnant and we knew we might lose our babies.

Please don't make my husband have to go through another loss. We've been calling this dog Daddy's baby and everything. He even gets up in the middle of the night to take her out to pee. He loves this puppy like crazy!

God, please don't take my husband's puppy-daughter. Please.
