Bottle Babies Arrive Sick

Bottle Babies Arrive Sick

Our 6 tiny, 2-week old German Shepherd/Malinois bottle babies arrived Thursday. Unfortunately, they arrived with what appears to be upper respiratory infections that are presenting today 😭. We are working on getting them started on antibiotics, tube feeding and sub-Q fluids now. It never ends…❤

*** UPDATE *** It is with unbelievably shattered hearts that we must report that Babies Nellie and Bertie became septic overnight on Friday and perished, despite drastic efforts by our veterinarian to save their lives. Their little bodies just couldn’t handle the illness they got at the shelter. Baby Lizzie is still struggling, but she is holding on as of today (5/3/21) The boys in the litter are doing very well so far, and we pray they continue to grow stronger and healthier with each passing day.
