    I am so very happy that she seems to be on the mend! I was so worried about her...

    I am sending many positive thoughts your way!!
    The more people I meet...the more I love my bulldog.

Same as with your other fur baby that had it but has since device red?
    According to the vet Parvo is like chicken pox, and they can only get it once. Hopefully that's true!

    Our poor little Angel baby spiked a temperature of 104 and has been holding there all day, even after administering pain meds, and antibiotics. They thought she may have pneumonia, and did an xray which came back normal, so now they believe she may be septic. Her regular vet recommended we take her to the overnight clinic here in town, and we did at around 4 today. At midnight tonight I called to check on her, and the tech that answered was extremely rude and only said, "she's resting in her cage" I paused waiting for more information and she said, "and make sure you're here before 8, if not, we'll be forced to lock the doors and leave". I was SHOCKED to hear her say that! I just flubbeled out "Is she still running a fever?" And she said, "No change". So now, here I am sitting in front of the emergency vet's door after going in and saying very unkind things to them, while I wait for 7:20 am.

    I have a question for those following this thread about my tiny baby. When we went to pick her up to transfer her to the emergency clinic this evening her little butt was R A W it's swollen, and BRIGHT red! I actually thought her anus was covered in blood when I started giving her the mommy once over. She had "poop", which is now just slime, dried on her legs, tail, and butt, and semi formed slime caked on her tail pocket. WHY would my vet allow my baby to get this way?! She has diarrhea, BUT she doesn't tuck her tail to make the area more prone to reddness, she can't fight them, and a daily dab with a cold cloth on her tush wouldn't take a minute to do. We mentioned it to the wench mentioned above and all she said was, "she has diarrhea". Duh! Wipe her! Bring me a freaking wet cold wash cloth and I'll dab that baby's butt! Maybe I'm overreacting but if a HUMAN patient was allowed to have diarrhea and it clob up on their butt and iritate it like her tiny butt is the family would be havin' a hangin'!

    Poor little thing! I would definitely make sure they know how unhappy you are with their lack of care. I can't imagine how worried you are about this little baby!

    I would be infuriated and talking to the owner of the practice... that is unacceptable

    That is unacceptable, don't take her back there again! I would have ripped them a new one. Find a new vet, I'm sitting here wondering if that environment she was in could be the reason why she's not improving. I hate that people are being rude, but don't let that get to you. Find the best place for her, and give her all the loving you can. She needs to see you, hear you, smell you. Dogs respond so well to their mommys & daddys. When our Tyson had gone into respiratory attack and we went in to see him, he was unresponsive. They had him incubated of course, but he just looked dead, laying there on the table. Once we came in and started talking to him, petting him, (I was crying) - his little nose started to twitch, and he started to respond. So much, that he had to take him away because they didn't' want him waking up suddenly, and not being able to breath.

    Continued prayers for you and that sweet baby Angel - I just know she can pull through this! Come on Angel, we're all rooting for you!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    GOD bless your little Angel, and bring her through this. And when she makes it,do have a talk with the person in charge. Having the diarrhea would certainly make her red and sore,it is so caustic-but not keeping her as clean as is possible, is inexcusable. I am praying for her to keep on fighting and pull through this. No reason for the "tech" to speak to you that way, either.

    I'm going to move her to a new 24 hour vet that just opened a few weeks ago. The family has been in practice here for a very long time, but just recently expanded to emergency/24 hour treatment. The treatment plan for Angel is exactly verbatim what is recommended, although, they dont have 24 hour coverage at our regular vet. The cleanliness problem went further than I thought, too. Her IV blew on them again at the emergency vet last night, and they didn't put another one in. She had the cone of shame on her head, and since she didn't have an IV I took the cone off her, and BAM the smell was absolutely putrid coming from her neck. She had dried "puke", which like her poop is slime, from her mouth down to where the cone was fastened. *sigh* We aren't allowed to see her because she's in isolation. They allowed us a short peek in her cage Sunday morning, and to transport her is the only contact we've had with our baby girl. I just feel terrible....
