If you’re curious about the Parvo ICU I post about, it’s run by an awesome animal rescue group called Austin Pets Alive. Austin Pets Alive is dedicated to making Austin a no-kill city, and as a part of that, we take in puppies (and adult dogs) with parvovirus from animal shelters and treat them in isolation in our special parvo intensive care unit. If not for our program, these dogs would almost certainly die: not only will the parvovirus kill 90% of dogs if left untreated, most shelters lack the resources to treat parvo and euthanize parvo-positive dogs to prevent its spread. I am one of the medical volunteers in the Parvo ICU and whenever I remember my camera I try and get a few photos of our pups.
