When you are asked to take in two litters of abandoned puppies and you have fosters, what do you say? Yes!
So when Diesel and his siblings were dumped in the Redlands south of Miami, they were brought to us. Also, when Gabby and Celie were being given away online and we got the call asking if we would take them before someone else unable to properly care for them got them, again we said yes. Well, the day after they were with their separate fosters, they became lethargic and began vomiting and had bloody diarrhea. Off to the vets they went.
Gabby and Celie, 3 month old terrier mixes, went to Northdale Animal Hospital in Tampa for their parvo test, and, sadly, it came out positive. They were then off to Tampa Bay Emergency Services for immediate care until they had IV's with meds and sub-q fluids on board to be transported to our primary vet in Cape Coral, FL, Viscaya-Prado Veterinary Hospital. They remain there to this day.
Diesel, a 3 month old Aussie/Catahoula mix, was with a foster in Cape Coral, and she saw that Diesel and his sister Sheba weren't feeling well, so she took them to Viscaya-Prado Veterinary Hospital where their parvo tests also came back as positive. Thankfully, Sheba wasn't as sick as Diesel and was able to go home after getting fluids. Poor Diesel was not so lucky and he has been under the vet's care ever since.
We are so fortunate that our vet's office has around the clock vet care and staff, and we know they are in the best hands possible. We are extremely hopeful that all 3 will make it through. We usually have a buffer for these types of emergencies, but we have three medical situations that are each requiring specialized vet care. Now, we are scrambling to get these surgeries scheduled and this is making it impossible.
