A Close Call for Bobi

Bobi survived Parvo  5-Oct-09

Bobi survived Parvo 5-Oct-09

It was only a few days ago that we thought 2 month old Bobi wasn’t going to make it.

Bobi was found in an indigenous neighborhood.  He had all appearances of dieing.

We took Bobi to Zoo Mascota where he was diagnosed with Parvo.  Dr. Miguel admitted him and after a few days of hospitalization and treatments Bobi  showed remarkable progress.

Bobi is also one lucky dog because he has someone waiting to take him home with her, and also because his hospitalization expenses have been sponsored by a kind local person.

Cases of death and near-death due to Parvo and Distemper continue to occur in our area.  As the animals die a slow and agonizing death they leave behind diarrhea and other unhealthy bodily fluids.  We have unconfirmed suspicions that there may be linkages between the spread of these diseases in the neighborhoods and rumblings from neighborhood leaders about wanting to poison.

We are working hard to find acceptable anti-poison solutions for the neighborhoods.  Our plans include a series of regularly scheduled walk-around visits to the neighborhoods during which we offer vaccinations and other treatments.  Our goal is to stabilize the deadly current circumstances, and work towards sustainable levels of Parvo/Distemper vaccinations administered throughout the communities.

Please help us to fight these killing diseases and prevent future epidemics.   We are seeking donations to help us purchase these life saving vaccines.
