Nova - Canine Parvovirus

Internal Medicine

Nova's little girl came to our hospital with a diagnosis of parvovirus.
It had been 5 days since she had been admitted to another center. When monitored here and tested, she had leukopenia, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia. In addition to a very severe hypoalbuminemia and hypoproteinemia.

He did not want to eat anything at all, he vomited and had very liquid diarrhea.

With the severity of her condition, it was necessary to perform a plasma transfusion and place a nasoesophageal tube to begin assisted feeding.

The abdominal ultrasound study showed us moderate-severe gastroenteritis.

Thanks to treatment with antibiotics, analgesia, internal deworming and antiemetics, days later, the white blood cells began to normalize. Albumin and total protein were also slowly rising, day by day.

Nova began to eat by herself. The vomiting disappeared and her mood improved markedly.

The last two days of admission determined that she was stable to go home, and she was, so after twelve days of hospitalization, Nova was able to return home to her family.

We continue to carry out controls until the normalization of the blood count, total proteins and albumin.

What satisfaction to see her improve and to know that she will be able to enjoy a life full of love ...
Thanks to the family for letting us be part of their evolution and improvement.
