So sweet little babies like Alegre don't end up fighting for their lives. :(
Alegre has parvo, a horrible disease that strikes puppies and has a very high fatality rate. There is no cure for it, just treatment for some of the symptoms as we wait and hope that their little bodies can fight it off. But it's very easily preventable by a simple, inexpensive vaccination! No puppy should ever have to go through this, but sadly, Alegre is LBR's second parvo pup in the past month. Frazell managed to pull through, and he's sending lots of get-well vibes to his cousin Alegre, who was admitted to the ER vet this weekend. Please keep Alegre in your thoughts, and remember to vaccinate your pets!!!
