Thanks for posting that thread - I remember it happening now but I didn't link it to what Deska had. Deska's was very obvious bleeding, no vomiting and a really awful smell (which my vet says is the same smell as Parvo). Plus of course in the heat of the moment and being away from home it was all very hard to take in. Wish I had remembered the thread as it may have got my team mates moving if they had a concrete example of how fatal it can be. I really don't think they took it all seriously. I know I'll be carrying electrolytes and syringes with me from now on when we go away. It can't hurt to keep stuff for rehydrating the dogs around anyway, esp when we are at comps. Mr D had a walk this morning and did pretty well, definately getting his strength back enough to be barking . Unfortunately he isn't allowed NSAIDs for his arthritis anymore just in case, so he's going to be pretty stiff and sore, and the surgery has been delayed to let his health recover. And he is refusing to poop atm, holding it in for dear life poor thing.
