Parvo Virus and no money to pay Vet

Parvo virus is spread through contact with feces containing the virus. The virus is known to survive on inanimate objects - such as clothing, food pans, and cage floors - for 5 months and longer in the right conditions. Insects and rodents may also serve as vectors playing an important role in the transmission of the disease. This means any fecal material or vomit needs to be removed with a detergent before the bleach solution is used. The bleach solution should be used on bedding, dishes, kennel floors and other impervious materials that may be contaminated.

We moved into a cabin in Coram, Montana. When the boys were about 4 months old, Spaz came down with Parvo. I’d seen it before and I knew he was going to die. I couldn’t afford to take him to the vet. Neither Roxie nor Shorter were showing any symptoms yet but I was so scared. I knew it was just a matter of time before Shorter got it too. Roxie probably got a Parvo shot since she came from the animal shelter. Spaz wouldn’t eat or drink and that nasty diarrhea, God! Spaz was sick going on 3 days and I didn’t think he’d make it another day. I cried all that night.
I called every vet in the Flathead Valley, no one could help. Someone told me about the Spay and Neuter Task Force. I called them and told the vet that I couldn’t pay for treatment and I couldn’t just watch my animals die. PLEASE was there ANYTHING that I could give him, he was so sick. God bless that woman, I do not remember her name. But she told me to go to the feed store and buy penicillin. The penicillin cost $13 dollars and I got the syringe there as well.

She told me to get Spaz to drink Pedialyte. Pedialyte is an oral rehydration solution specially formulated to quickly replace lost fluids and electrolytes due to diarrhea and vomiting. It's made for babies and you can get it anywhere. After everything said a done to total cost was under $20.

Spaz got his shot of penicillin and I give one to Shorter for good measure. I took about a inch thick piece of skin on the back of their neck and quick forceful jabbing since the skin is very hard to pierce.They both got a couple of shots over a week’s time. I was relieved when Spaz drink and begin to eat again. Neither Roxie nor Shorter ever showed any signs of Provo.  

Thank you Lord as you reveal things to me...
Day by day...
