Lenny the Parvovirus Survivor

Admitted at 8 weeks old

Lenny was admitted into our hospital after being diagnosed with Parvovirus.

1 week in the hospital

While Lenny was hospitalized his treatments included I.V. fluids, antibiotics, medication to help with the nausea and more medication to protect his gastrointestinal system. He continued to vomit and had large amounts of bloody diarrhea. Eventually, he required a blood transfusion to counteract things. The swelling developed as a result of protein loss.

2 weeks post hospitalization

Lenny is ready for discharge. He has fought the virus off and can now go home.

Lenny has recovered and is now growing like a normal puppy!

Happy and Healthy!

 

 Please vaccinate your dogs. Lenny is an amazing dog and fought for 2 weeks before starting his recovery. 

 

Parvo is preventable with proper vaccinations. They need to be started at 6-8 weeks of age and continue every 3 weeks until the pet is 15-16 weeks old, then revaccinated in 1 year, then every 3 years. 

 

 

Hospitalization for parvovirus can cost thousands of dollars vs the whole puppy series of vaccines costing less than $250.
