The worse thing has happened, Maddie has been diagnosed with
the disease Parvo. I noticed she wasn't her usual happy go lucky self
two days ago and on top of that vomiting and refusing to drink or eat.
Like a good mommy, I IMMEDIATELY took action and took her to the
vet right away. The vet said if the parvo is in the land, there is
nothing you can really do about it except keep the dog up to date
on vaccinations, she already had a shot for Parvo and it was time
for another round of shots for her and Scooter when she got it.
What's weird is my grandpa's girlfriend's 10 wk. old puppy died from
Parvo two days ago, and him and Maddie has never been around
each other...how strange. Also, it is contagious so my Scooter
boy has went to stay with my mother until Maddie is fully recovered
(giving her an IV treatment at home) and I lysol the entire house.
She is ok though, just very very weak, the IV injection keeps her
hydrated and she can drink water when she goes 24 hrs. without
vomiting. On top of that she has diarrhea also.
My husband has also been sick puking and the whole nine yards,
oh God hopefully it's not the flu! I have a sick dog. I have
a sick husband. UGH.
Please pray for my Maddie though that she will recover and life
will go on normally for her and us, she means the absolute world
to me and the hubby. She is my baby.
