Riot update

The little guy has been a fighter and has had a tough time of it.  Yesterday his temperature was normal and he was feeling fairly spry and started drinking water so I thought maybe he was turning the corner.  But by afternoon he was vomiting a lot and acting painful.  We took some radiographs but didn't see anything too exciting.  This morning his fever was back so we added in a third antibiotic and increased his fluid rate.  He has responded pretty well to that and looks a little better this afternoon.  On the plus side, he's only vomited once today and is tolerating the syringe feeding of a liquid diet very well. 

And I have been doing a lot of laundry.  I have a whole new respect for all my techs who have ever had to take care of a parvo pup now!

I've thankfully never had to look after a dog with parvo. I've heard that it is heartbreaking and disgusting and involved never ending laundry. Hope Riot pulls through.
