Super Sick Baby

Mishka has Parvo and it is very serious. After sitting up with her all night with extensive vomiting and diarrhea at 7:45am when my vet opened I was there with her and we got back her fecal results. She does have worms but not enough to create the kind of rapid decline that the doctor was seeing in my puppy. So we spent an hour doing a bunch of blood tests and it ends up she has Parvo which is a serious disease. And it is even worse because it hits the breed of Rottweiler’s and Dobermans even harder than other breeds and Mishka is a Rottweiler mix. I opted for the emergency 24 hour care that the vet could give even though I longed to keep her with me. My vet recommended that she would have a much better chance if she was monitored with the proper IV for food and water. Reluctantly I parted with my puppy and came home alone. The vet gave her a 50/50 chance of being able to pull through and all I can do now is pray that she fights and can make it. The next 48 hours will be critical; if she can make it that long her chances increase exponentially.

I walk through my house and see all her toys and remnants of her being here and my heart just breaks for her. Please pray for her!
