Pitties Porky and Little Mama
These two little miracle babies survived parvo, a horrible disease. Porky was brought in after 5 days of already being parvo positive. He was unresponsive with a 104 fever. He was hooked up immediately to an IV, given fluids and medications. After he had been at the vet clinic for a couple of hours the vet advised he needed a blood transfusion. A blood transfusion was done and tamiflu was also given. Porky was sent to the ER clinic to be closely monitored.
Little Mama came in weak and very sick, but not as sick as her brother. She was hooked up to an IV, given medications and tamiflu. After a week in the hospital both babies made a complete turn around and were released to a local volunter/foster Tomi in Hickory, NC.
The call then went out on the Pilots N Paws board to help get the dogs to central Texas from North Carolina. Raymond Fosdick wasted no time in responding that he could get the dogs from Rock Hill, SC to Austin, TX if the dogs could make the 100 mile trip to Rock Hill on the following Thursday morning. He was headed there for a family event and could add a couple dogs to his cargo. Heather, with Don’t BULLY Me Rescue Texas, made arrangements to have the dogs in Rock Hill for an early morning departure. One stop in Mississippi, and the crew made their way to Austin.
Heather says, “We are so grateful to finally have them here in Austin, Texas. Thank you to everyone that played a role in making this happen!! (Crystal with Hartman’s Haven in Conover, Jill, Vonna, Tanya and Pilot Raymond.) Crystal helped tremendously. She got a vet in place, went shopping for the leashes, collars, and crate. She had one of her fosters take in these two monkeys once they were released from the vet.
