M&M, Cocoa & Brownie: 2-week-old puppies dumped with parvovirus
M&M, Cocoa and Brownie were only 2 weeks old when they were dumped by their "owner" at the Memphis Animal Services shelter. All three of these adorable siblings had parvovirus, a highly contagious viral disease that can produce a life-threatening illness.
No medications are available that can kill the virus. Treatment can only control the symptoms and boost the dog’s immune system to help them win the battle against this dangerous disease. Dogs infected with parvovirus need intensive treatment in a veterinary hospital, where they receive antibiotics, drugs to control the vomiting, intravenous fluids and other supportive therapies.
Parvovirus is extremely serious given that the puppies are only 2 weeks old.
Stray Network Animal Rescue took no chances and began aggressive treatment. They knew the fight they were up against and they went quickly to Horn Lake animal hospital for admission and treatment. While treatment for just one puppy with parvovirus can cost thousands, three at the same time can be overwhelming.
Both Cocoa and Brownie have successfully beat the dreadful virus and remain in stable condition, M&M is battling for her life. M&M is on fluids and IV medications at Horn Lake Animal Hospital.
We have partnered with Stray Network Animal Rescue to raise the funds needed for the treatment of all three puppies, and in particular, M&M, who remains in critical condition. With every purchase you make, we will donate $10.
