Forgive my absence....It has been a long week. After days of River eating, then not eating, then eating etc....we know why. It was not teething as I had hoped...through it all she was acting fine and normal poops. Then bam...Thursday we have vomiting and diarrhea. I sent a poop sample to Laurie to be tested for parvo and it came back positive. After a weekend of intensive supportive therapy I am guarded......she is hungry again and I have started her on small meals of clinicare. So far no vomiting and no diarrhea...in fact got some solid poop out of her! Appetite comes and goes and no signs of ataxia yet so lets pray for the best.......
Now I am holding my breath hoping the other 8 do not start showing signs in the next week....I can only hope my quarantine procedures hold up. It's as good as it can be in the home rehab setting without proper isolation rooms!
On a little better note, Razz is not alone anymore as he has joined the Fab 5 eating machines. Although technically the other 8 were out of quarantine, it has been extended until I know for sure they have not been exposed to the parvo.
Got a couple new non-coon kids in as well and JoAnn released 7 baby bunnies this past weekend...I'll update you with them when I get another moment to breathe!!
