There is money availabe from the National Humane Societ ear marked specifically for Katrina relief for pets-Call the local distaster relief center and ask how you apply they will have that information-If you can't find out anything from them try the American Red Cross they have a website www.redcross.org
THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PARVO VIRUS BUT I'M NOT A VET. IT IS OBVIOUS THAT YOUR NEW PET NEEDS MEDICAL ATTENTION IMMEDIATELY. MOST VETS WILL SET UP A PAYMENT PLAN AND LET YOU PAY A FEW DOLLARS A MONTH. THE YELLOW PAGES IN YOUR PHONE BOOK HAS LISTINGS FOR ALL THE VETS IN YOUR AREA. TAKE KOKO TO THE VET IMMEDIATELY.
Humane society vets generally cost quite a bit less than other vets. They might set up a payment plan too. I think most vets would set up a plan also, especially considering your circumstances. Contact a local rescue & they might help you. You can usually find them through vets or pet supply places like Pet Supplies Plus, Petsmart etc. This sounds serious & your dog should be seen immediately. She counts on you to do what's best for her. I doubt any vet would turn you away, regardless.
