Puppy with Hydrocephalus

I have a 1.3 pound, 3 month old chihuahua puppy who just crashed on Saturday. I rushed her to an aggressive vet 24 hour weekend clinic and she was diagnosed with Parvo. I already gave her two shots and somehow she is now exposed to this.


She is so precious to me and I would like to know how long will it take her to get better. I would also like everyone to say a prayer for her to help her each day. She has been at the clinic now since Saturday so 4 days and is showing improvement, but when they take her off the glucose she crashed like soon after that.

What should I do, now they are saying she may have hydrocephalus as well? I have invested $1500 plus and she looks like she is really getting better, but now there is the hydrocephalus which is life threatening as well.

I will keep your puppy in my prayers. I just went thru the same thing with my kitten that I adopted. I brought him home on a Saturday afternoon and Monday had to take him back and they said he had Panleukopenia. He survived and is doing wonderful now. I do hope your baby gets well.

You are an angel on earth to try so hard, but there comes a time to let her go. I know, a lot of you will agree and a lot will disagree, but that is the reality. Of course, if you have money to burn, and I doubt you do if you are a member of this community, then by all means spend it. An ethical vet will tell you there is no hope, rather than taking more and more money.

I once found the most precious little kitten half starved in a field. My daughter had two, and when I brought this little gal home, I asked if she had room for one more...and of course she did.

She was very tiny and seemed to grow slowly, but she did grown. She seemed to be doing fine, then one night, about 9 months later, she began to howl like injured cats often do. It was a quick trip to the vet and she was gone before we could even get her into the office.

Sometimes, critters who are too small or malnourished and their hearts don't grow with them. That was the case. If this little angel is meant to be here only a short time, then better with someone who loved her and tried to keep her alive.

I truly hope she makes it. Take some photos of her for your mantle so you can always keep her in your heart.

God bless you and your puppy. I don't know how to help you except thru prayer. Just remember that God is the great Healer, and even when the vet can no longer help your puppy, He can. Please keep your faith! I'll be praying for you both!

Parvo? enema with colloidal silver 10 to 15ppm. Half hour later, another enema. This knocks out most of the parvo germs accumulation in the colon, plus provides added hydration. Hydrate by mouth often, dropperfulls, larger dogs, use even your baster. good idea to dose any small amount of colloidal silver but do it often as you can until crisis is over. Then you can cut backin the following days.

"Poor But Proud", your story broke my heart :( "Samantha". I will pray to St. Francis of Assisi for your baby. He is the Patron Saint of Pets. Please let us know how it goes.
