    Default Rescue pup with parvo.

    Jingles needed. I rescue dogs and I pulled a 6 week old puppy from a shelter a week ago friday. She was just a little punky on sunday evening, so took her first thing monday to find out she had parvo.
    After a very up and down week, vet said yesterday she would make it, then tonight vet on call called to say she had pneumonia. Crap. He did not want to put her down, but treat her over night.
    I am afraid I know this outcome, but trying for jingles anyway.
    I never even named her.
    Parvo is a nasty disease.

    So sorry that your new pup, and you, are dealing with this. Big jingles that she can pull through. Many, many years ago, when I worked for a small animal vet, I rescued two doberman pups from a local shelter that both ended up having parvo (and subsequent complications from the parvo). They were quite sick for several months, but both did pull through to become healthy, happy dogs. Wishing the same for your girl.

    I've known a lot of pups that made it through-I hope and will pray that yours is one of them.

    Godspeed little darling. This absolutely sucks. I also spent over $400.
    I desperately want to go save another puppy, but that makes no sense. I have 16 recues of my own, and one foster right now.
    I have pulled 9 dogs from a local shelter in the last 4 weeks and adopted out 7. I am afraid to go back to that shelter for a while.
    I am just sad.

    Awwww. Hugs to you. I wouldn't pull anything from that shelter for awhile but take a little time to let your heart heal. Parvo is tough.

    I'm so sorry to hear. Parvo sure is nasty and unforgiving.
    Do keep in mind that it's not recommended to have young dogs in your house after parvo a year or younger for six months, and be sure to bleach absolutely everything you can. At least those are the guidelines we have to abide by it our rescue.
    Again, I'm so sorry she didn't make it. Godspeed, little pup-pup.

    Bleach is your best friend especially if you want to continue to rescue puppies.

    Best of luck...

    So sorry to hear about the puppy.
    I would wait 3 weeks before bringing home any more pups just in case one of your other dogs got it.

    I know. Sigh. I want to fill this hole with a puppy, but I won't. I pulled a 7 year old Chi last friday and monday they put down all the dogs in his run and the one beside it, due to parvo. Hopefully, he has had some vaccines. he was neutered today and teeth cleaned, and no signs of sickness, so i hope we dodged that bullet. I have been down on my knees scrubbing floors with bleach. Yuck.
    Thanks for all the good thoughts. I just am so sad that I never got to get her out of there and hug her.

    I am sorry for your loss. Please report this to your state veterinarian if you own veterinarian has not already done so. It is essential that the regulatory veterinarian be notified so that proper quarantine steps are observed at the shelter.
