Lilly and Bear
Yorkies Inc was contacted last night about two very sick puppies, Bear a 3-month-old male Maltipoo & Shiztzu Mix, and Lily a 7-month-old female Chihuahua who both needed medical care right away or they would be humanely euthanized. Yorkies Inc could not let that happen without giving them a fighting chance so of course we said we would take them both into our rescue!!
These two sweet little puppies who have had an unfair start in life. Bear and Lily have been diagnosed with Parvo and are now fighting for their lives from a preventable illness if they had been properly vaccinated. They spent last night, at the vets, receiving IV fluids and medications due to severe hypoglycemia. We are hoping they are stable enough to make the trip to Tufts where they will spend the next several days receiving ICU medical care. Please keep them in your thoughts as they are very sick and have a long road ahead of them. Also please consider making a donation as their vetting is going to be quite costly. Thank you!
Both Bear and Lily have been safely transported to Tufts where they will continue to receive around the clock medical care. Please keep them in your thoughts as they are still very sick and weak with them both having their ups and downs.
Both Lily and Bear continue to have no interest in eating and continue to have loose stools. Due to not wanting to eat they are having feeding tubes put in to hopefully help stimulate their stomachs. Please continue to keep them in your prayers.
Arriving at Tufts
Both pups have been moved out of the ICU and are now just in isolation where they will be for at least the next few days. They have both eaten a little bit of food and seem to be feeling a little better. Lily has been curious of her surroundings and Bear wagged his tail for the first time. Their vetting is currently at $7,100 please consider making a donation. Thank you for your continued support.
Both pups continue to do well and are in a medical foster home where they will continue to be closely monitored and watch to make sure their health doesn’t decline now that they are no longer receiving supportive care at Tufts. Their final vet bill was just over $8400.
Both pups continue to do well in their foster home. They are becoming stronger and healthier each day. They are eating and going to the bathroom with no issues. They are enjoying going for little walks around the yard and playing with toys. Once medically cleared they will be fully vetted and ready for their new forever homes.
