Last week he was diagnosed with parvo virus which is a nasty virus that puppies get when they are unvaccinated and unprotected. They will likely die without treatment, and they can die with treatment. It all depends on how their immune system fights off the virus, and it is generally very expensive. Supportive care is the treatment..
The owner made the very unselfish decision to surrender the puppy to 4 paws 1 heart, and give him a fighting chance. We took over financial care and he will be going to a rescue this week. He is now happy and healthy and over the virus. If you have not heard of Parvo Virus please read about it because it is extremely common. Please consider the cost involved in owning a puppy before adopting one. Not only do you need to consider the cost when they get sick, but they need 4 sets of vaccines, neutering/ spaying, flea/tick preventative, and heartworm preventative. Gina
