    My dog is dying

    My Chihuahua 7 month old is dying of Parvo. The Vet says there is nothing they can do. There is really nothing quite as sad as watching something you love die.

    My dog is dying

    Parvovirus is a viral disease of dogs. It affects puppies much more frequently than it affects adult dogs. The virus likes to grow in rapidly dividing cells. The intestinal lining has the biggest concentration of rapidly dividing cells in a puppy's body. The virus attacks and kills these cells, causing diarrhea (often bloody), depression and suppression of white blood cells -- which come from another group of rapidly dividing cells. In very young puppies it can infect the heart muscle and lead to "sudden" death.

    Oh, I am so sorry to hear that Shannon. You must be heartbroken Of course, it is almost inhuman to watch a little, lovely creature you got used to die But why didn't the vet euthanize him? Isn't he in pain?

    Sorry to hear that Shannon. I worked in a vet clinic and parvo is terrible.. I had a lady who's dalmation pup had parvo and it was touch and go but he lived but his litter mate and best buddy passed very fast. Our thoughts are with you.. :kiss:
