Hi guys, Lauren here. As you all know about a month or so ago I found this puppy on the side of the major highway I 45 in Houston. Since, I have decided to keep him. He’s so sweet, loving, and an absolute joy to have. But there is a problem.
About a week ago, he started having very bad diarrhea, to the point where he was going in his crate, which he’s never done before. At first, I thought it was because his food, so I changed his diet. But now he has been showing other symptoms, such as vomiting a foamy white substance, lethargy, and a fever.
I have a very sickening feeling it’s parvovirus, but I don’t have the money to get him the treatment he needs. Due to recent emergency medical bills, I can barely afford to pay my rent. I never ever ask people for help if I can avoid it, but he’s my baby.
Please, if you can donate anything so I can get him to a vet and the treatment he needs, I would be so grateful. If you cant, signal boost this? Please, he is such a wonderful dog and deserves this more than anything.
If you’re willing to donate please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just send me an ask.
Once again, thank you to all who even take a moment to read this.
OKAY FIRST OF ALL
Parvo is really really serious and while I’m currently unable to donate I can give you some tip until you get enough money to take him to the vet. I had a dog that we got through parvo with medicine from the vet but they really stressed this to us.
Buy LOTS of gatorade and a puppy safe syringe [no needle]. Make sure to give him AT LEAST a half of a bottle of gatorade a day.
The best way to get him to open his mouth to drink the stuff is to lift his lip and place the tip of the syringe behind his canine tooth on either side and push gently until he opens his mouth, then slowly squirt the gatorade into his mouth until he swallows it all.
THE MAIN REASON DOGS DIE FROM PARVO IS DEHYDRATION.
I cannot stress this enough that he gets enough fluids, even if he throws them back up make him drink some more. He has to stay hydrated or he might not make it.
I really hope your dog is okay and I wish you the best of luck!
