Dakota is a tiny puppy who is unresponsive.
We received urgent plea about an unresponsive puppy who was unable to keep food down and very lethargic. Our partners at The Arrow Fund rushed to save the tiny puppy knowing he was in very critical condition. When rescuers arrived they soon realized that Dokat had sisters who were also fighting for their lives. The rescuers rushed all of the puppies to the emergency vet.
Dakota and his sisters are in ICU Isolation and is receiving 24 hour care. They are receiving a plasma transfusion as I type this. They have bloody diarrhea and vomiting. Dakota's blood pressure was low, so he was given meds to help that. His temperature was down to 96 through the night, it is now around 99. His white cell count is down to 1000 for a normal healthy puppy it should be at least 10,000.
To make matters worse all of the puppies are lethargic and have a hard time walking. All also have a low protein count. All in all Dakota is one very sick boy and fighting the deadly parvo virus. We are doing all that we can for him and his sisters. We actually need a miracle for him to pull through. Please hold our sweet baby boy close to your heart tonight. Baby Dakota please fight hard, you have so many that love you now. We love you so much .
Dakota’s emergency care will cost in the thousands and that is just not the type of funds The Arrow Fund has. So we have stepped in to help in our own way. Introducing our animals saving products below.
