After being found Monday wandering along a street in East Boston, the dog known as "Tuesday" is now receiving serious care at a Boston animal hospital.
According to the MSPCA, the puppy was discovered outside on Monday night and has parvovirus, a condition that can be fatal without immediate medical attention. Following a request for assistance from Boston Animal Control, the MSPCA became engaged.
Mike Keiley, director of adoption centres and programmes at the MSPCA-Angell, stated that the call was about a dog that appeared unwell and was located on Saratoga Street in the East Boston neighbourhood.
We agreed right away to accept him and admit him to our Angell Animal Medical Center, where he is currently stable.
According to the MSPCA, puppies' rapidly developing cells in the GI tract and bone marrow are targeted by parvovirus.
The MSPCA stated that it is always lethal without treatment and can be completely prevented with vaccination.
