Two of my 8 month old Chihuahuas were sick yesterday so I took them to the vet. They were both positive for Parvo. The vet put them in the hospital there and is treating them both. Obviously very expensive treatment but my dogs are my kids. Anyway, I was just wondering if anyone knows the answer to a question I have. At night and on the weekends when the office is closed, does someone come in and care for the animals that are in the hospital? If so, Is it a staff member? Any info that you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I am just so worried about my dogs.

Thank you

I can't speak for all vets but I used to work at a clinic and I was one of the people that would cycle in and check on all of the animals at night. All of them were monitored and there was always someone there. We would sit in chairs with the dogs and every 20 minutes check sutures for bleeding, check temperatures, check vitals, check breathing, check heartbeat, etc.

I would check with you vet because not all have someone at night. When my cat got hurt I asked and picked him up because they said no one would be there at night.

Thank you very much. I received a call this morning that one of my babies had died. One is still in the hospital. I hope she pulls through. My heart is broken. Any prayers that anyone can say for my baby Sadie who is still alive would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Thank you very much.I really appreciate it. I got a call about 7:00 this evening from the vet hospital. The person working tonight called to tell me that there was slight improvement in my baby Sadie since I was there this morning, She seems more alert and seems to be feeling better I was told. The same person that called me this evening said she would call me in the morning and then again tomorrow evening. She said that as of this evening, I could take the news as a good sign. As I am sure y'all can imagine, my heart is broken and I have cried many tears today. The news this evening was encouraging. She also told me that they may try to give her food as soon as tomorrow. I am praying hard that my baby will pull through and be okay. Thank you for all that you have done for me. I will post updates here as I get them. Please keep my babies in your prayers, Thank you again.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. I got a call last night from the vet office saying my baby was doing a little better, seemed to be feeling a bit better and more alert. Not ready for food but doing slightly better. I am hoping this is a good sign.
