|Hello everyone, my 4 month old dachshund "brent" is fighting parvo and its his 5th day. he started vomiting white foam on saturday,and on sunday he refused to eat and drink, we took him to a vet that day and the vet said that hes just having an upset stomach, took him home and still refuses to eat, we had to force him to drink water with some dextrose powder as what the vet said and then that night he had diarrhea with a foul stench.no vets were open on sundays so we had to watch over him and kept him hydrated till the next morning, took him to another vet on monday, thats when we got the bad news.
day 2 (tuesday) little bud was holding on, docs said there was just a tinge of blood in his stool, still liquid though, better than how it was on monday.he wasnt as skinny as i was expecting. he was there lookin at us but wasnt really as perky as he used to be. on that night, the vet said he had vomited blood 3 times, the first vomit had a lot of blood and the rest were minimal.
day 3(wednesday) when we visited him in the morning, my boy sure was very excited in seeing us, he missed the belly belly (me rubbing his belly). he was very responsive when we visited him, but still weak.he was wagging his tail a bit, his vomiting was controlled but still had loose and bloody diarrhea.
day 4 (thursday) we saw how much brent suffers when the vet gives him his medication.. antibiotics, some supplements, and antibodies were given to him, the antibiotics seemed to be very painful. it was hard to see him in pain and knowing that he is going through this each day. but he is fighting. all we could do is to rub him gently and telling him that he will make it and that we are missing him so much. they said that there was a bit of improvement on his diarrhea, he is pooping out old blood, they said that since he hasnt vomited since wednesday night, they will force feed brent some ID food. i thought it was good news but that night, we got a text from the vet saying that he is not in a good condition. he did not absorb the food they have given him and started to vomit again.
Day5 Today: we have never seen him so weak, but he still managed to get his head up, he was excited to see us, but did not have the energy to fully get up. my heart broke, and i couldnt do anything but to rub his head and talk to him that he needs to fight, it took him this long and i know he will make it. im trying to think positive, i have faith in my dog, and im still praying that he will pull through.
i hope it isnt much to ask but please have brent in your prayers too. i love my buddy boy and he means so much to us.
