Update on our puppies—known lovingly as the Parvo Five
The puppies were very sick---some sicker than others—and spent many days in isolation intensive care at Animal Medical Surgical Center in Scottsdale. While they were there, they received plasma transfusions; antibiotics; stomach and intestinal support medications and round the clock care. Fortunately, the best efforts by Dr. Rory Lubold and the veterinary technicians were rewarded with great success and all the puppies have gone home to loving families.
Gus and Tug were the first to go home on Wednesday.
Gus will be living in Scottsdale with his mom, dad and Golden sister and brother. Tug is living now with his mom and canine sister in Chandler.
The girls left the hospital on Friday. Molly, now known as Knixzy, has 3 human siblings as well as a canine brother for companions in Chandler as well.
Carly, now known as Ruby, lives with her mom, dad, Golden sister and 2 feline siblings in Chino Valley.
Charlie was the sickest of the bunch and required three plasma transfusions to get him back to behaving like a puppy! Fortunately, he was able to leave today, Saturday, with his mom and dad in Tempe.
The puppies will suffer no long term effects from having had the parvovirus, but will need special care and medications as they continue to stabilize. Then they will receive all the typical puppy vaccinations and all will be spayed/neutered and microchipped. We do so appreciate all your support and kind words. Even with the discount we received from the treating vet, the bill per dog is over $5000.00. Please help us be there for other Goldens in need!
