12/5/22 – An update on Nova’s puppies (see earlier posts and/or our website). I’m very sad to report that BOGO passed away two days after our dear friend, Emily K., took on the formidable task of saving her. She just wasn’t strong enough and her very large cleft palate was too much for her to contend with when trying to eat. Both BOGO and Doorbuster had painful bellies and bad diarrhea. Dr. Zalac, who Emily has been in close contact with and who has seen the mom and babies, believes they have/had adenovirus (infectious hepatitis). The good news is that Doorbuster has turned the corner. The diarrhea has stopped and he finally took a bottle yesterday. He is gaining great weight and Emily reports that “Buster is a little Piggy”. The last photo of Buster was sent to me yesterday, he looks like one of those milk commercials. – diana.

P.S. Please continue to share, promote, and donate (if you can) in the Detroit News Holiday Cheer for Charity contest. Babies like BOGO and Buster depend on us.

Please DONATE to 4 Paws 1 Heart — Funding medical treatment for stray animals
The donations received during this campaign will enable us to continue to fund medical treatment for those animals who have no one else. The impact of inflation and the Covid virus has made the need greater than it’s been in the past 12 years.
