On April 2nd, Mojo, and her siblings came in to our care. Unfortunately the 4 of them soon showed symptoms of canine parvovirus. A highly contagious disease that is spread through direct or indirect contact with their feces.

As the virus attacks the pups gastrointestinal tract and has a high mortality rate if left untreated Mojo, and siblings, were admitted to the isolation unit at the WCVM Small Animal Clinic on April 3rd. There she has been attended to by the caring vets, vet techs, and students of the college.

On April 5th, Mojo was released from the hospital, she was bright and active and letting all the staff know that she wanted her foster family.

Mojo was readmitted on April 8th as she was now showing symptoms of parvo that were concerning. She was lethargic and lacking appetite. The staff at the hospital were there for her right away.

April 11th Mojo was given a feeding tube, she is just not interested in eating at this time. Everyone working her case are working hard to help her fight this awful disease.

We want to thank everyone at the Small Animal Clinic, the volunteers at CAP, and New Hope Dog Rescue for all that they are doing and have done to support Mojo and his foster home as he works to feel better.

Update: There may have been some happy dancing yesterday when the news came that Mojo was able to go home to her foster family. While she doesn’t have the usual puppy energy we want to see she does have a very waggy tail and a good appetite.

Update: Mojo had her 2 week check up and she is doing really well. We are so happy to see her being a healthy and happy girl.

Update: Mojo found her forever home, she didn’t need to look too far as her foster knew that she just needed to stay!
