Little Car Seat French Fry (yep, that’s his name), was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. Once there, it was clear he was suffering from parvovirus – a deadly virus contagious in puppies. Parvo can lead to fever, lethargy and progresses to severe vomiting and diarrhea. These symptoms in the puppy leads to dehydration and ultimately damage to their immune system and intestines. French Fry came to the shelter just in time for the stage of parvo he was at.
The vet started treatment on French Fry immediately to give him the best chance at beating the nasty virus his little body was infected with. According to canineparvovirus.org, dogs have an 80% chance of survival if treated within the first 48 hours of infection.
Thankfully, little Car Seat French Fry is part of the happiest of meals now – and is recovering well from the virus! He’s in a foster home learning manners, socializing with other dogs and getting as much love as he deserves. He has a few more vet visits, then will be up for adoption!
