“No, I’m not giving up on her”

“This is Missy. She will be 3 years old in September. In March 5th she was diagnosed with distemper. She wasn’t eating, nor being her hyper self that she normally is, her nose was so hard and dry, and full of green buggers and blood, her paws were so hard. I would wake up with her every hour giving her water with sugar, pedialyte, and water with a syringe. I wouldn’t sleep just to keep an eye on her because I was so scared she might not wake up. We took her to the vet. She got some antibiotics. Vet said she doesn’t get better bring her back on the 3rd day, so we did. 2nd vet saw her and told us she had distemper. My husband told him, “well save my pup” vet said “it’s not worth it, it’s better if you just put her down, your wasting your money and time”. I just started crying like crazy. I took her out of there and I said “no, I’m not giving up on her”. So we found this amazing group. And we heard about the New castle vaccine. We ordered it. My husband said let’s take the shot. So we did. We went back to the vet to see if he would help us in injecting her. He refused. He didn’t want to be part of it because there was no scientific proof that it saves dogs from distemper. So we took matter into our own hands, one of our good friends they are familiar with distemper said they would help. So we took the chance. We gave her the dosage ever 12hrs till it was gone. It was so hard since she was so dehydrated. But our friends managed to get it thru. The 1st night she ate and drank water. The 2nd round she fell back down again. 3rd one was the charm. She started eating again. Being more active. A week later it’s as if nothing were to ever happen. She is back to being the boss with our other dogs lol. Most people said if we were sure it was distemper. I tell people well whatever it was this new castle vaccine sure killed it.”
