Sweet Maggie started to show symptoms of parvovirus in the early morning hours of August 10th, knowing that timing is everything in these cases her foster home rushed her to the WCVM small animal clinic along with her littermate. Both were tested, he came back negative and remains symptom free, while Maggie was positive and admitted to the isolation unit.

Maggie has had good days and bad and remains in hospital at this time, but no matter the day she continues to fight. Food became unappetizing to her when she was still vomiting with anti-nausea medication and it was decided that a feeding tube needed to be placed. Once she had her first meal through the tube she became a little brighter and hope remains strong with this little one.

Parvovirus in an hour by hour battle until they are symptom free. Maggie will remain in her foster home for 30 days once she is released from the hospital to will allow her time to continue to heal and regain her feisty strength while her body finishes shedding the virus.

Update: Maggie is well on her way to being healed and ready for adoption! Sept 15th is coming fast so this little girl is making sure to enjoy all the food and eat all the treats all while entertaining her foster family.

Update #2: We are happy to announce that Maggie has found her forever people. We know she is going to live a very good life.
