Im sorry I have not been on and posting but yaya came down with parvo last month. We have been nursing her back to health ever since. The ER vet said that since it took her so long to get it there must have been a dog up in our yard that transfered it to our ground and thats how she picked it up . We also found out that a pup can get parvo no matter if they had there shots or not cause there mothers antib. can stay in there system for up to 20 weeks and if thats the case then the shots will do them no good. Im just thanking god that we ended up with our lil angle and no one else cause I have to thank what if they did not want the huge vet bill and just let her die...It just brakes my heart to thank it. But we are back and geting better now. She went in to the vet at 20 pounds went down to 6 pounds and is now at 14 pounds so we are geting there. Now they have her on Iron and Imun. meds to help her.

Oh! Poor Baby! So glad to hear Yaya is on the mend. Parvo can be such a devistating disease, and she's one of the lucky ones. We have friends who lost a puppy to Parvo. Glad to have you back posting.

Arooooos from Bogie Carter!!!

Parvo is such a violent disease. I've been thru it with one of my bassets many years ago. He survived, but it was so heartbreaking to watch. Glad your hound is on the mend. :)

I'm glad she's on the mend. Parvo is horrible, and kudos to you for not giving up. When I was a kid I lost a basset puppy to parvo. He'd also been vaccinated. (Vets should tell people that even though they're immunized, puppies are still susceptible.) It was a terrible experience, and I still feel bad about how things turned out. I'm glad your story has a happy ending.
