Boo Boo

Boo Boo at VSEC Animal HospitalBoo Boo, a 5-month old Bulldog/Pit Bull/Lab mix was diagnosed with Parvo and aspiration pneumonia. 

After being evaluated at Animals Hospital of Levittown, he was transferred and admitted to Veterinary Specialty & Emergency Center (VSEC). 

He had a fever of 106; he was a very sick dog who would have died without immediate emergency care.

The first few days of Boo Boo's treatment saw very little change in his condition.

Just afterward,  Boo Boo went home.
