We have now entered in the second month of 2021. For me it feels like I did nothing in January, except taking this blogging break. Yes, I’m still on a break but I need to publish this post. There was no plan that I would write this post on my blog as I’m on a break but something happened which made me to write this post.
Please take care of your dogs
In my colony, there are lots of street dogs and two days ago I noticed that much of them were missing. Then it all started… dogs are falling sick and dying. I don’t know about everywhere but in the city I live called Ambikapur.. everyday hundreds of dogs are being taken to hospital. Doctors are saying that it’s a serious animal disease called Parvo (Canine Parvovirus). I don’t know much about this disease so you check the link to Wikipedia.
February 1, was the worst day I’ve seen in this new year. I lost my puppy. She actually did belong to my cousin sister but we are neighbors and I see no difference between her pets and mine. She was only 6-7 months old, and then on Jan 30, she suddenly fell sick and stopped to eat anything, then continuously vomiting then blood. My cousin took her to the animal’s hospital and there doctors told him about the disease. They told us that this animal disease has affected our whole city and Animal hospitals here are full of patient dogs.
The same day I found a street dog in my backyard, laying on the wet surface in a corner. I tried to make him eat some dog food but he didn’t, then the next we found him dead in the neighborhood.
Then late night we found that my sister’s other dog has also caught the disease. My cousin arrived to take him to the hospital on Feb 1st morning. Before leaving he told us that our puppy is no more.
The other dog’s condition is also very serious now and we’re just hoping and praying him to recover as fast as possible.
Maybe reading this post, you might be thinking about me that I’m heartless, writing a post after this incident but whatever you say, I need to inform you about this. Please take care of dogs, and keep them separate from each-other.
Both of my sister’s dogs were always together, and doctors were saying that the other dog caught the disease because of staying with the puppy. I lost one but I don’t wanna lose another one too. I believe that prayers have power so please pray with me for his good health. And I have to take care of my pet too; I’ll do everything to keep him safe from this disease. And please pray that my sister’s dog, who is fighting.. will win.
I don’t know how I’m writing this post and honestly I don’t want to write about this. Everytime I think about this my eyes fill with tears and it feels like it was all my fault. I could do nothing to save her and can do nothing to help the other dog to recover. You are reading this post it means that it has published on my blog but before hitting that ‘Publish’ button I wished to delete this post, but I know why I’m doing this.
Yesterday if I commented on your posts or talked with you guys, I’m really sorry, I think I was just pretending to show that everything is normal.
I don’t know you know about this disease or not. And I hope that your home-town is safe from this disease.
Please take care of these precious brave animals and please pray for the ones who are suffering.
