parvo and puppies

So last friday after 21 years of wanting our little Basset puppy arrived 8 weeks old. Friday went like a blast though a little tired from his trip (8 hours from Athens to Thessaloniki) on Saturday morning he ate and drank and played a little. later in the afternoon he seemed dull, didnt want food and so on so we called a vet and he told us he was probably tired which seemed fair enough, his condition only got worse throughout the weekend and on Monday morning he went to the vet which suspected worms so he got treated for that. he did not improve and on Wednesday we went again the puppy had not pooped for 36 hours, he got put on fluids and glykose and anti vomiting pills over night, today the vet found a stool with blood and other signs of parvo and it scared the living beejeeves out of us, he is obviously still in the vet recieving all the care he can provide him. i was wondering if maybe some of you have experience with this and can share their experiences with us
We went through the same when we purchased are now 11 week old pups. The last two weeks we spend most of our time in the ICU intensive care unit at our nearby animal hospital it has been touch and go for both of our pups for the last couple of weeks the last one came home just two days ago and is very weak still as she has lost 2 1/2 pounds in the last week. It has been a very costly time for us but the worse I hope is now behind us. If you can make it through the costly vet bills there is hope ahead. we will pray for you and your puppy.:)
