    Darlins64 - Wow - I guess my visit wasnt so high because he gave me at home care instructions, my gabby also had worms with parvo and some stomach infection. It as horrible and I took care of her like a child. I didnt work for 1 week and every hour I had to give her 5ml of water and her antibiotic once a day. I remember when I first noticed it, there was blood in her poop and worms hanging from down there - yuck - but she was my baby and I was going to do everything to get her better. I laid a towel on my bed and she slept by me the whole entire night, got up every hour took her out to pee -if she could- give her her water and go back to bed to wake up and do it all over again in a hour. If i remember correct I paid for her visit and the medicines and thats all, I wouldnt say I paid more than $150.

    I took Gabby to Dr. Culberson and he is excelent and always has taken good care of gabbs, and the staff is wonderful also.

    darlins64 -
    My puppy contracted Parvo when she was 12 weeks old, it was a long healing process and emotional. But all in all it didnt cost me 1k to get her better. I had to give her an antibiotic once a day and give her 5ml of water every hour. She pulled through after 5 days and now you would never know she had Parvo at all. Unless prices have changed since 06' I honestly dont think its 1k to treat your puppy that has parvo.

    Parvo is a disease that attacks a dog's gastro-intestinal tract and then moves into its bone marrow. When treated at home, survival rates are less than 50%. When treated with I.V. therapy in an animal hospital, survival rates are still only 80 to 90%. Our vet called it "The Meanest Guy in Town."
    Spring is a time of high incidence...probably because it is "puppy season" and the young ones are the most susceptible. Add to that the fact that everyone wants to pet a puppy...and the disease spreads.
    None of us can remove all chances that our puppies will contract this disease, but there ARE steps to take to minimize the risk.
    First, make sure all of your adult dogs are vaccinated, de-wormed, and carrying a healthy weight. The de-worming is important because worms weaken the stomach lining, giving the Parvo virus an easy target. Then, be sure that all your puppies get their first shots at 6 weeks of age. Give another shot every 3 weeks...making sure that they get two after 12 weeks of age. You can take them to the vet, or you can purchase the shots at a feed store or pharmacy and give them yourself.
    If you bring a new dog into your home, especially a puppy, keep it isolated from your other animals for 14 days. That is, unless you KNOW its history and know it has been vaccinated. And, since older, stronger dogs can carry the virus without becoming ill, keep your pup away from older dogs until he's had two shots after 12 weeks of age.
    A pup who looks perfectly happy one day can be deathly ill the next. At the first sign of intestinal upset, get that dog to the vet. If you catch it soon enough, you may be able to save the dog.
    Protect All the Dogs you meet...
    Humans often spread Parvo without even noticing. By forming some new habits...and instilling them in your children...you can help stop the spread of this dread disease.
    First...Wash your hands. Before you touch a puppy... wash your hands. After you pet a dog... wash your hands. You don't know where you might pick up this virus... it could even be sitting on the handle of a grocery store cart...left there by some other customer. So wash your hands!
    One significant outbreak of Parvo traced back to kids walking home from school and petting the puppies in yards along the way. They carried the disease along their entire route from school to home.
    YES...they're adorable, and YES you like to give them attention and pet them... but by doing so could kill them. Don't.
    Next, if you happen to step in a pile... don't just wipe your shoes. Wipe them with a mild bleach solution. If you know you've held a dog with Parvo, bleach your clothes as well. And if you've had a sick puppy in your home, you need to bleach all areas it occupied.
    Vaccination is the first line of defense and careful habits is the second. Please use them both to keep your dogs alive and healthy.
    CATS ARE ALSO AT RISK!
    Parvo doesn’t affect cats…but there are other diseases that do. And they are just as deadly. Use the same precautions with kittens as you do with puppies… but more. Cat diseases are airborne, so don’t take your kitty visiting anywhere until he’s had all his shots.

    I hope they find who did this and get some justice for Eric. My thoughts and prayers are still with Eric and his family through this tough time.

    I know I was expecting something already, my friend said she is going to ask her dad and she said she will let me know something later. Kinda weird this huge wreck happend yesterday and there is no cover story on it yet, my fiancee passed by right and i mean right after it happend because he said there were people running around everywhere and there was debris everywhere and it did not look good. He also said there were no cops there so he called 911, not to long after that call there was a ambuliance going to the location of the wreck.

    my prayers are with the family and the girlfriend - i believe this could happen only because i have been in a argument with my ex and while we were fighting he pushed me and i pushed him back and accidently pushed him into his window - he didnt fall out of the window but he did get cut bad and he was bleeding and he didnt know, neither did i. we went to bed and he woke up feeling bad like 10 min later and we noticed what was going on, we caught it in time thank god. its possible to be drinking and not have good senses - like smell and when you pass out from drinking our your brain is going 100 million miles a min its easy to not notice simple things like oh i feel the bed getting wet. he also might have hugged her with one arm and rolled over and went to sleep, he probably thought he was ok and didnt want her to worry. who knows what happend we were not there so we shouldnt think anything till the police have more info, no one is going to know what really happend unless you were there.

    but ouch if my arm was severed i would think the pain would be really bad - but i am not going to start anything.
