Fletch arrived at Chicago Animal Care and Control as a stray at just eight months old. He had a fever of over 105° and was lethargic. He was vomiting and refused to eat, which concerned the staff that he may have parvovrius, a fatal disease in puppies if not treated. Animal control tested him for parvovirus, and his results were positive. One Tail at a Time pulled him from animal control so they could get him the urgent care that he needed.
While at One Tail at a Time, Fletch received urgent treatment to combat the effects of parvovirus. He was hospitalized with supportive care including I.V. fluids and antibiotics to fight his high fever. Despite how terrible he felt, Fletch remained a good-natured and friendly boy.
During his hospitalization, Fletch received the best news. Turns out he had been lost from his home, and his family had been searching the local shelters and rescues for him. They found him at One Tail at a Time!
Fletch, whose real name is Coyote, was reunited with his mom and was able to return home. He received the life-saving care he needed and is on the mend, but will need to remain quarantined for 30 days while he’s still contagious. Once his quarantine is up, he will get vaccinated, chipped, and neutered. Please enjoy the happy reunion of Coyote and his mom below.
