Sky is a 4 month old puppy that has been suffering from severe parvo.
She has not held anything down for 3 days and has experienced bloody diarrhea and vomiting.
The family did not have the means to take her to the vet to see what was wrong, so they reached out to one of our former adopters, who reached out to the GOTGM for some help. We stepped up for her because she is clearly suffering, and she is now at our Vet Coyne Animal Hospital in critical condition. She is severely dehydrated and is very lethargic, we are not sure if she is going to make it through the night. If she does make it, she will receive a blood transfusion tomorrow morning. We have started her on IV fluids with the IV antibiotics, and she is also receiving anti-nausea medicine to help her to stop vomiting.
We normally are not in a position to step up for owner surrenders, but Sky's little face spoke to us and we could not sit still and watch her suffer. Parvo is probably the absolute worst thing an animal can die from because the body is literally attacking itself. Her treatment will be very expensive and any donation or purchase from Sky's wishlist would be greatly appreciated. Please forgo your Starbucks tomorrow and donate that $5.00 to help Sky.
