After running a series of tests, Jakey tested positive for the parvovirus this afternoon. This complicates Jakey’s delicate condition a bit, and means he needs more extensive treatment.
The good news is that APA! runs one of the only specialized Parvo Puppy ICUs in the country, so Jakey is in great hands. Our team of expert staff and volunteers will continue to provide the medication, treatment, and love that Jakey needs right now. You can make a donation to help off-set the increased cost of treatment that comes with this unexpected news.
Jakey, the seven month old dachshund mix we wrote about yesterday, is resting and healing in the APA! medical clinic. He is in great hands with APA! staff and volunteers. Please keep him in your thoughts, and thank you to everyone who donated and shared his story.
