Poor dogs, they're already fighting off death, and now they're forced to be on Oprah? Talk about not being able to give consent.

Such a sad story. No one needs to lose a pet that way. I would really try to find out where they got it from.

Sadie pulled through because of good supportive treatment. Puppies need their full set of vaccinations before being exposed to other animals and even then it isn't fool proof if they were exposed before full immunity set in. Please don't take 5 week old puppies to pet stores, think before you do.

We've helped over well 800 people deal with cases of Parvo, and in our experience, vaccinations can give a dog Parvo (as well as having other issues). To read more, please check out a blog post we made recently: www.ParvoBuster.com/vets

I thought vaccines were supposed to prevent Parvo in puppies? How could this have happened in this day & age? Hope all is well with the surviving pup... very sad that she lost her little brother.

We have had puppies at the shelter come down with parvo, and it is really hard for everyone involved because the prognosis is usually so poor. It is great that this pup was able to pull through, and she has got a pretty good life ready to great her.

Parvo xxxxs . . . Guess I shouldn't use the phase I was going to. . . With proper and expensive treatment the majority of pups can survive it. And thankfully, Oprah's pup got the best of care. Many owners can't afford the treatment required. And in a shelter environment, the expense and threat to other animals is too great to deal with, and dogs with it are invariably euthanized.

While it's true that most vets in the US charge anywhere from $500 to over $10,000 per dog to treat Parvo, it doesn't have to be that expensive. Safe, natural remedies are available for as little as $200. Please don't let a vet tell you to murder your dog just because you can't or won't pay their huge fees (and with an average survival rate of only 50%) - some vets charge more to kill your dog than it would cost to treat it using other means. If you go with their professional advice, your dog has a zero chance of recovery; with home treatment products, it is usually around 90%.

I am so relieved to hear that Sadie beat this deadly Parvo disease. It is sad though, that Ivan succumbed to it. Kudos to Oprah for adopting from a shelter and being the animal advocate that she is and has been for many years!

Great news for Sadie. I believe she will now be immune from Parvo. I know Oprah has gone through alot of worry and also sorrow over the loss of her other puppy. Glad there is a success story for Sadie.

While Sadie is likely to be immune to the strain of Parvo she had, she may not be immune to any future strains. We're currently on the fifth strain of this virus (known as 2c), and it's getting worse all the time - more contagious, more aggressive, and harder to treat.

Best wishes for Sadie, and bravo to Oprah for adopting for a shelter. She puts her money where her mouth (an heart has been for years) A great example that I'm hoping other will follow (President Obama!) Much love your way for a speedy recover Sadie.
