Every pet is brave in his\her own way, but a few, just go up and above. We are thus writing an introduction to their victory. A tribute to our pet's bravery.
A few weeks ago Bill, an 8-week old puppy, was presented to the hospital with vomiting, diarrhoea, inappetence and not his normal, bright bubbly self. His owners were very worried about how quickly he seemed to be deteriorating and brought him into the clinic. Dr Raiyan suspected Parvovirus and after completing a test, the results revealed Bill was parvo positive.
Bill was immediately admitted to hospital to receive intensive treatment from the team. This included intravenous fluid therapy, antibiotics, antiemetics and antacids for supportive therapy. After a few days in the hospital with treatment, lots of TLC and sooo much bravery, Bill started to feel better. Once he was eating and drinking again and was able to keep everything down with no vomiting, Bill was ready to go home and be reunited with his family!
Bill is one lucky puppy, parvovirus can be fatal and we urge all owners to keep their pups up to date with all their vaccinations and to not walk their puppy until they have had their final puppy vaccination.
