Sterling AND Silver Have Parvo
Sterling AND Silver, these adorable Staffy mix puppies, came to us yesterday on transport from Licking, Missouri with their sisters. They both broke with parvo.
The unfortunate part of rescue is when we get these helpless puppies who start their lives with this potentially fatal virus. The fortunate part is when we can treat them and save them from almost certain death had they not come to rescue.
Silver started showing symptoms yesterday; lethargy, not eating or drinking, vomiting and diarrhea. He made it to the vet just before closing and his snap test came back positive. He went home with an IV of fluids and medication to treat at home for the night he is back at the vet today for care. Sterling tested positive and has started treatment today. We pray we caught this early and can save them both! We still have 2 more puppies from this litter we are watching closely! We desperately need your help! These pups make parvo dog #11 and #12 we have come into our rescue in the last 3 months. We cannot sustain these kind of medical costs without your help. We are so appreciative and grateful for every dollar you can give! Don’t forget, your donations are tax deductible too!
