    Meet Masya! (“Mah jah”) When we first met this beautiful brown and white Pit Bull puppy back in December she was a very sick little girl, weak and dehydrated. Masya was part of an unwanted litter that Save-A-Bull Rescue and Rescued Pets Are Wonderful both cared for last November.  Several days after being rescued, Masya (formerly Diamond) became extremely ill with severe diarrhea and vomiting.  She was diagnosed with parvovirus, a potentially life-threatening disease for puppies and adolescent dogs. 

    Parvovirus is a virus that we routinely vaccinate dogs for as part of their core vaccines.  Contact with this virus is virtually impossible to prevent as it is shed in dog’s stool and can be anywhere in the environment. It attacks the immune system, leading to devastating effects in the GI tract.  Puppies are especially susceptible, as antibodies from their mother’s milk offer only limited and temporary protection.  They must be vaccinated for parvovirus and the other core vaccines at 8, 10 and 14 weeks of age to be fully immunized. 

    In order to safely quarantine Masya and her littermates, Dr Amber cared for them at her home.  Sadly, Masya’s two sisters were unable to recover from this dreaded disease and did not survive despite all of the supportive care Dr. Amber provided. But this little girl is a fighter and responded to the fluid therapy and medications given.  Her labwork results improved dramatically, showing us that at 13 weeks of age her body is working hard to restore her immune and GI system to normal.

    Masya is the sweetest girl, loves to play and has found her forever home…. with Dr. Amber!!
