Parvo Virus – Protect Your Dog

Gina DeLuca

During the last 5 weeks we have seen SEVERAL new puppies brought into the vet hospital per day!!! If you or someone you know has a puppy please educate yourself about this virus. Also, check into pet insurance especially for emergencies! I have seen medical care range from $500 to $3000 on average and there is NO guarantee your puppy will survive because just like every virus it depends on how they respond to treatment.
A friend and LVT made the below post…

PARVO SEASON folks!! Don’t start walking your new puppies and showing them off until they are FULLY VACCINATED. Which is around 4 months of age after around 4 series spread out over 3-4 weeks between each series depending on the age they were initially vaccinated. Have questions? Call a veterinary clinic. Don’t ask google, your breeder, your best friend, your groomer, or tractor supply, etc. Seek people with knowledge and actual credentials for your questions. We love to help and we prefer you call us, don’t think you’re being annoying or silly ❤️🐾 We hate to see you in a few weeks, having to make difficult financial and emotional decisions because you got the wrong advice or were uninformed ✌🏻

Lil Bit, Precious, FeeFee, Garfield, Little Lady – Found on Streets

1/7/20 – I try not to overload with our stories but there are so many to tell. Here are five beauties, all found on the street, their spay/neuter had already been scheduled but they needed immediate help for upper respiratory infections. In some cases, the first round of antibiotics did not work and additional meds were prescribed. Also, FeeFee may have pneumonia and may need a chest x-ray. We are following up on that. Here is Lil Bit, Precious, FeeFee, Garfield, and Little Lady. Only with your donations can we possibly afford to help all of these animals. – Diana

Pet Supplies Plus – Assisting Independent Rescuers and Community Cat Caretakers

11/17/19 – As anyone who follows us or asks us for medical assistance knows, part of our mission is to also assist with finding that forever home. That is why we offer courtesy posts on petfinder and why we will collect food to help those we’ve helped medically.

The Village should never be taken lightly in that together we can make miracles happen. – Diana

4 Paws 1 Heart Mission & Restrictions

Please share and help us remind everyone that 4 Paws 1 Heart is restricted to assisting only abandoned, stray, and abused animals. Very often owners who need medical assistance will be referred to us but we cannot help them. Unfortunately that results in a disappointed and sometimes angry owner. When we incorporated with the State of Michigan and filed for our 501c3, we knew we could not afford medical care for all. Consequently we restricted all expenditures to animals without owners. We truly wish we could help every animal but we are a very small organization which relies totally on individual donors and small fundraisers. We do not receive grants and are just thankful that we have been able to help as many animals as we’ve had because of the generosity of our community. – diana
