Sweet little Caleb was rushed to our friends at Gulf Coast Veterinary Services earlier this week, because his foster mom thought he had parvovirus. I asked Gulf Coast to do everything possible to keep him alive. He ate ravenously after he arrived there, which gave me hope, but then he started sneezing and coughing and had difficulty breathing. He was put in an oxygen chamber and we worried that maybe we were looking at a puppy with distemper. His PCR panel came back negative for distemper, but it turns out he has high levels of mycoplasma. I did a quick dance of joy when I heard he was distemper negative, but mycoplasma is very serious for a little puppy like Caleb. Mycoplasma has no true cell wall, which means it can assume any shape, spread easily throughout the body and is resistant to antibiotics. Little Caleb has fighting this bacteria all week long. I visited him today and he was grateful when I rubbed his little ears and told him he had a lot of people at Team RPM pulling hard for him to get through this. When I removed my gloves and isolation gown, and turned to leave, he barked a few times. The techs at Gulf Coast asked, "Was that Caleb?" When I said yes, they replied, "We've never heard him do that!" I choose to believe that means Caleb answered me and said he is going to survive. I want to see him travel to our rescue partners with the rest of his litter mates. As of today Rescued Pets Movement has paid $1,000 of Caleb's $7,294.08 vet bill at Gulf Coast. Are you able to help us with the rest? Whatever you can donate here help us go the extra mile for little Caleb and other cats and dogs with medical needs. Please help us help him! THANK YOU!
