Woman Accused of Taping Boyfriend's Dog to Fridge Given OK to Live ...
As a veterinarian who has treated hundreds of Parvo patients I find the above comments to be inaccurate and unhelpful. First of all, recognize that a small number of Parvo patients recover without any professional care. To improve chances of recovery from about 30% without care to much over 90% hospitalization is required. The virus causes vomiting, loss of protein and profound dehydration. The solution is aggressive intravenous rehydration -- no miracle cure given by mouth will ever work in a vomiting patient because it will not be absorbed by a vomiting patient. The average duration of hospitalization is 3-5 days, so it is probable that your sister's dog was on his way to recovery after appropriate care at the veterinarian office. Let me also remind the readers that puppies properly vaccinated for Parvo virus starting at 6 weeks of age and boosted every 3weeks through 16wks, are very un likely to come down with this disease in the first place. The emphasis should be placed on proper vaccination rather than unproven panaceas. - Ena Valikov DVM (NOTE FROM JUSTIN: ALWAYS CONSULT WITH YOUR VET)

Dress is upscale casual or dressy. No shorts. I can provide free tickets (up to four per person) to anyone (volunteers or otherwise) who RSVPs to me, if they want to sit and just enjoy the event.
