5 Boerboel puppies from a local community have been diagnosed with the horrible Parvo Virus.
it started with 1 puppy being very ill which we had to p.t.s as the horrendes disease was eating away at her. With more investigation it was found that 2 others were showing signs of the disease which were rushed to hospital for immediate treatment. They left the hospital after two days and were 90% better.
the other 3 puppies that were there were enclosed far away from the other sick puppies at their home in the local community and the whole area we disinfected. However it was to late as they had already picked up the virus but showed to signs. Now we have 3 puppies in total who are at the Vet being treated and two who will soon be ready for their new homes.
Parvo is a horrible disease, the symptoms of Parvo is vomitting Diarrhea, not eating or drinking and dehydration (this you see when you pinch the skin and it stay upright)
I understand that there are many more puppies and dogs out there that need treatment, unfortunately I was put in a uncomfortable predicament and had to take action as I could not let them suffer and die a horrible death.
My current vet bill for these puppies for the first two days was R3778,- and we are now on day nr 5 with a extra pup admitted.
Your efforts and donations are much appreciated.
