they have no idea what is up with him, there was "nothing obvious". just to do the workup on him is 450.00, and if he stays overnight its 1500.00 - 3000.00 I do NOT have that kind of money. Jesus. . . Hubby called from the vet and its possible that he has parvo, that is their sneaking suspicion, but they are doing a full blood work up to find out. . . .
Well thats what Im wondering too! He has had all his vaccinations, so I dont know how he could get it then? Hubby has the list of all his vaccines with him too so I dont know! Although, I dont think vaccinations are 100% fool proof. My daughter for example had the vaccine for chickenpox and got them anyway.
As for parvo, just like any virus, it's one that is mutating & no vaccine is 100% foolproof. Unfortanely, we are seeing many more parvo cases in dogs that have been vaccinated. Plus, if the vaccines weren't done at a vet's office, one must wonder about the quality of the vaccine (was it allowed to warm up & then cooled down again? b/c once the vaccine reaches room temp, it has a shelf life of 48 hrs or less & that's why feed stores & the like are NOT good places from which to buy vaccines).
In our prayer hope all goes well for him.
Thats a lot for vet fees though when my rotty was rushed in to the angell memorial here they did xrays blood work keep him over night in ICU on intro & Oxigen and that whole thing cost me 1000.00 I thought that was bad
He was such a different dog when I got home today, I took him outside, and he ran downstairs, upstairs, downstairs, upstairs and back down before I got to the sliding glass door to let him out. He was leaping in circles. . . I could tell he felt much better. (VERY RELIEVED)
