Violet: Puppy barely responsive, battling parvo

Violet: Puppy barely responsive, battling parvo

 

Violet was dropped off at the Paterson shelter - a tiny pit puppy, just a baby and barely responsive. The kind animal control officer quickly called for rescue help, and A Pathway to Hope immediately sprung to action.  

When rescuers arrived, Violet was standing crouched over in her cage with her head hanging. Her gums were white. She was lethargic and uninterested in eating.  

Rescuers wrapped her in a blanket and kissed her face.  Violet looked up and tried to give a kiss. They immediately rushed her to the emergency vets. They couldn't put Violet down. They were afraid she was dying. Violet was comfortable and fell asleep with her eyes half shut, as they drove to the vet  It was the longest ride ever.  

When we arrived at the hospital, Violet was quickly taken back, and rescuers promised her that they would see her soon.  

Violet was diagnosed quickly. They all knew they would hear the dreaded word - parvo.  Her vitals were strong (yay!), but her blood sugar and white blood cell count was concerning.  

The doctor was hopeful that because Violet was a strong breed she would be able to fight this awful virus despite being such a tiny baby.  The best chance they can give a puppy with parvo is ICU isolation and hospitalization for several days, or more, on fluids, antibiotics and anti-nausea meds.  

The cost is prohibitive, but they have faith in our rescue angels to help Violet through this, and even more faith that Violet can fight this horrible virus.  Please keep this sweet girl in your heart in the days to come, and please help if you are able.  Together we can do amazing things.
