On August 18th Grace arrived with her sisters, Rosa and Sydney. They next day she started to show signs of lethargy, vomiting, and diarrhea. Knowing that this needed to be addressed immediately she was taken to a partner vet where a SNAP parvo test was completed. It came back positive. She was taken directly to the Veterinary Medical Center Emergency and Critical Care the WCVM.

Grace gave us pause on more then one occasion during her 9 days in the Internal Medicine Department when she stopped wanting to eat, sneezed out her gastrointestinal tube that was feeding her, her white blood cells dropped to 0 at one point, and she remained quite symptomatic. But Grace kept fighting the fight and asking for belly rubs and complaining that the team caring for her kept bathing her because of the diarrhea.

On August 28th Grace was released with her sister Rosa back into the care of her foster home who will now isolate them for 30 days. At that time she will be up for adoption. Until then she is going to eat all the food, play with the toys, and be fully loved on by her foster family.

Update: Grace has come to the end of her quarantine period and is excited to meet her family!

Update: Grace has found her people! We are so happy for her.
