Puppy Update

Well, Princess and I went to the vet today, and they asked when I had last given her a vaccination which I gave her yesterday. They told me because I had given it to her yesterday we would probably get a positive on the parvo test and they wouldn't know if it was positive because of the vaccination or because she really has parvo. She did end up coming up positive on her parvo test, but she is feeling a lot better and I was told just to watch her really close and give her her medication so that's what I'm doing. Her stool is getting more solid (was getting more solid last night too), and she never lost her energy. Doc said for now he'll look at the positive test as a side effect of the vaccination I gave her yesterday, but if she gets really sick then he'll have to say it really is parvo and we'll just keep her from dying from dehydration. Thank you all so much for your prayers and candles. I appreciate it so much!

I will still keep the candle and prayers going for you and your puppy. It's sounds good so far, but I will definitely keep up the vigil. I thought of you numerous times today, especially when I would see someone with a dog.


Love and light being sent your way.

I had a puppy who either had parvo or distemper (at the time, the only way to tell the difference was extensive tests that I chose not to have since both problems had similar issues). My pup recovered with constant care, Gatorade, echinacea, golden seal, plus a lamb and rice diet. It took diligent, 24/7, care, but he made it through and lived a long, fulfilling 13 years.

May this give you hope!

I was in dog rescue for 2 years and saw many a puppy pull through parvo, best wishes for healing to yours.

p.s. I snagged one of your buttons and would love if you would add mine to your page.
