Exam Table web UPDATE: We are pleased to announce that all of the dogs and puppies that were placed on quarantine following our Parvovirus scare remained healthy, and we were able to open our kennels up again on Sunday, October 9th!  This is a true testament to the cautious care and thorough disinfecting procedures at your local TCHS, as well as our procedure to vaccinate all dogs and puppies upon intake.  Parvovirus can easily spread through kennels in a shelter setting, and we are very thankful that it did not!  Kudos to the TCHS staff for a job well done! 

WHAT HAPPENED, AND HOW YOU CAN HELP:   TCHS has experienced tremendous growth throughout the last 2-3 decades with the support of our local community. With increased spay/neuter efforts, we have seen a decrease in the number of unwanted dogs and puppies arriving at our shelter, leaving us with an empty puppy room for large stretches of time. Because of this, we have been able to offer our services to homeless pets from less fortunate areas of the State.

This has been a win-win situation for these pets and their new families.

However, there are risks involved with accepting animals with minimal or no health care. Thankfully these risks have been rare, but recently TCHS discovered Canine Parvovirus in a litter of puppies that had been transferred to us from rescue efforts in northern Minnesota on September 11th.

As with every new pet that arrives at TCHS, these puppies were examined upon arrival and received

Remy sick web

After such remarkable progress in recovering from wounds after being shot 6 times near Avon at the end of February, it breaks our heart to let you know that Remy took a turn for the worse and sadly died on April 11th.  On April 7th, he started having seizures and was taken to the local emergency clinic. He was sedated to get the seizures to stop, but as soon as the sedation would start to wear off they would start all over again.  He was seen by 3 vets locally and the recommendation was to have him seen by the neurology department at the U of M Veterinary Medical Clinic.  He was sent to the U of MN on April 11th and died shortly upon arrival. 

Remy was an exceptional dog who touched the lives of many.  Thank you to all who contributed towards his care and well-being, and special thanks to Mike and Erin Strommen for covering his U of M costs. Most importantly, thank you to Gary and Shari Snyder, Remy's foster parents, for loving him as your own pet.

Necropsy results were sent to us late in May and are as follows:   Based on his autopsy, Remington likely had either cryptogenic or idiopathic epilepsy.  The autopsy findings are most consistent with secondary damage to the brain and lungs which was most likely sustained due to the recurrent seizures.  It is possible that Remington had post traumatic epilepsy which is best characterized in humans. This is impossible to prove, but the timing of his signs
