Cause of Unknown Sickness Discovered

201005151.jpg
Well, what have we here?
It's Cider who's having an IV drip while being held in the arms of a staff member classifying data in the consultation room.
Are you sick again?
What happened this time?

“I feel sluggish since I taking the medicine... I can't bear it any longer...”




Four sisters were abandoned in front of ARK in the end of last year. Guinness and Shandy found new homes, but Perrier and Cider are still at ARK waiting for adoptive families.
These sisters often got sick and the cause was unknown.


After finding a parasite on a dog in same enclosure, we gave medicine to Perrier and Cider but they had side effects from it.
This allowed us to find out the cause of the unknown sickness.
It turned out to be a genetic reaction to an antibiotic called sulfa.
It was in the medicine we used when they were spayed and also in the medicine that we used this time.


Now that we know the cause we are able to explain to potential adoptive families, which means they have a better chance than before.
There's nothing to worry about as long as their adoptive family tells the vet that she reacts badly to sulfa.
Even though we found out the cause, they still don't feel well yet and they have to continue treatment. I feel sad when I see them sick.
I wish I could feel sluggish instead.
Cider is getting better but Perrier isn't yet.
I hope they get well soon...! Please...
