Hello my friends!
I hope every one of you are having a wonderful week!
I've had a rough couple of weeks here...we thought we were going to lose our baby scruppy to Parvo. To answer any thoughts otherwise, yes, she had been vaccinated but sometimes the vaccines just aren't enough and this was one of those times. It started out mild enough and when we realized on the 3rd day that it wasn't just a run-of-the-meal tummy virus we took her to the vet and after diagnosing her he wasn't too worried because she was still well hydrated so he sent her home with medications but by the next morning she had to be hospitalized in critical care. I can't express how scared I was or how much my heart was breaking at the thought of losing her! She really is my baby. This house was so empty and lifeless and the whole family was so out of sorts without her here. Thankfully, God does answer prayers and Chloe is now home and perking up more and more every day...YaY! I do have to insert here that only 20% of dogs with Parvo survive if they aren't treated by a vet compared to 80% that survive when treated. PLEASE, if your dog contracts Parvo, I urge you to take him/her to the vet. Do not just "wait it out" at home. Also, the only thing that will kill the virus in your home is bleach. A 30:1 solution of water and bleach is what's needed. Take care of your babies!
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
