such a shame :( Our dog showed symptoms of Parvo 3 days after we brought her home from a rescue. 6 Mos. and $3,000. later she was a healthy happy girl. And still is (altho over weight)a happy healthy 9 yr old pup.

Taking on a dog with Parvo is not easy task, it takes 24/7 commitment. Special diet, If they'll eat, round the clock oxygen and IV's for fluid, antiobotics, and we did droppers of pedialite every 1/2 hr. for 2 straight weeks. However, we are proof, it can be done, and dogs can be saved.
