Oh Nooooo! :(

Postby HugABull1 » Wed Jan 11, 2006 5:58 pm

Chessa, a recent addition to HugABull's adoption program, is very sick. She's at the vet, in isolation, on an IV and antibiotics, waiting for her bloodwork to come back.

The bloodwork will tell us whether we're dealing with a bacterial intestinal infection, or the dreaded parvo. If it's the former, she should improve quickly. If it's parvo, because she's an older pup (about 7 months), and we caught it very quickly, her chances of survival are better - about 50%.

Poor little duck is feeling pretty awful, and looks rough. When I rushed her to the vet, her gums were white, and she was cold, although still able to sit up, stand, and raise her head. We'll know more tomorrow morning.

Please send well-wishes Chessa's way. She's just the sweetest little snugglebutt, and really deserves a break.

ya know, it's funny, I'm looking at those pics, and she looks so BIG. She's really quite tiny, only about 30lbs max. Cyrus, her foster brother, towers over her...

Anyway, I'll make sure to post when I have an update.

Well, I checked in with the vet this evening, and Chessa seems to have improved a bit with the fluids - she's trying to move around in her kennel. It's too soon to say anything definitive - we won't have a clear prognosis until tomorrow, but it's encouraging.

I'll keep y'all posted.
