The Moos were a family at Setia Walk where a 13-year-old student was feeding them out of her own pocket money. She alerted her teacher about how sick they were, and the teacher who is also a fosterer for us, asked us to rescue them.
Upon rescue, it was obvious they had really bad parasites (inner eyelids showing), fungus and flu with lots of discharge. They were boarded at the vet for a week, then found a fosterer. However, the smallest girl Mila also had severe constipation so she went back to the vet for two enemas and an overnight stay. Then Mason stopped eating and Mama Maddy was vomiting - they were taken to another vet where they both tested positive for parvo and so did Mila at the other vet.
But luckily they were all diagnosed early and treated aggressively with drips and medication, which I believe increased their chances of survival greatly. Without treatment, parvo has an up to 90% fatality rate! And it was a miracle that all three of them survived. Mila was discharged first after 10 days, then Mason and Maddy were discharged after two week of hospitalization.
They are now all in three separate foster homes as they all had different severities of parvo, and they are THRIVING! They are eating well, playing well, having the time of their lives and look at me with big eyes asking, "Parvo? What parvo?" They will need isolation time for at least 4 weeks before they can be vaccinated, then reintegrated. Mama Maddy will be spayed. We will then look for homes for them!
We were so so elated that they all survived such a scary disease, but crushed when we saw the bill. We knew we had to do the right thing to save them but did not anticipate a total bill of almost RM 2,000. PetFinder has been kind enough to let us appeal for donations here and we want to thank you in advance for reading this far and caring about The Moos and other animals in need. We will make sure that these strong parvo survivors are on Easy Street, from here on out! :)
