GRAVY BOAT – Gravy Boat (who was later renamed Nova) came to us as a puppy at the end of 2020. She was immediately put on medical quarantine because she was found to have canine parvovirus or “parvo.”
Vaccines can prevent this infection, but it can reach up to a 91% mortality rate in untreated cases. Dogs need access to treatment and fluids in order to make a full recovery from this. Because it is highly contagious, they must be kept away from all other animals.
With the care and treatment from our team, little Gravy Boat was able to pull through and was named a parvo survivor!
“We heard about nova through our friend Megan. She sent me a picture of her with a little Santa Claus hat on and told me she was a parvo survivor and I could not resist getting her. She is full of life, loves to adventure, and is obsessed with swimming! We love her sassy self and we’re grateful she is in our lives❤” – Gravy Boat’s adopter.
