My 4 m/o Rat Terrier mix, Junie, was feeling under the weather about 36 hrs ago, so I went through the usual motions thinking she just got access to some chicken poop and/or parrot poop. She kept getting worse and had THE worst smelling feces. I took her to the vet today when she started getting covered in feces uncontrollably and was groaning. I am glad I did because she was dying right on the table and had a Parvo-positive result. They said she wouldn't have survived the night.
When I told them I got her from a shelter, they think the shelter did not vaccinate her sufficiently as a "cost cutting measure." They told me not to blame myself...but now I have 4 more, including a Parvo-susceptible baby Rottie to worry about. I am so upset this happened. Did I mention the $800 vet bill to come? I am so mad and upset and worried about what will happen to her this weekend. I miss her so much.
