    My husband was working abroad and he found a 6 week pup on the street so he took him it was touch and go he had parvovirus but with treatment he survived. He then had all his bloods rabies etc and was bringing him back to uk.. however all the flights stopped due to covid so the dog had to go into the rescue centre whilst we waited for him to be able to fly. We had him in September and in October he was yelping when you touched his back it was difficult to say what it was so he went on pain relief and when we stopped it the pain came back so we were referred! They did X-rays and then an mri scan which showed Discospondylitis
    Ordinary they wouldn’t check for brucella but because of where he came from they did a quick test which came back positive. They are sending a test off as sometimes they can be false positive I’m awaiting on that we are devastated as he is the sweetest dog you could ever meet, everyone who sees him wants him even the consultant asked if she could have him (before she knew) then they had to get him out quick! Has anyone gone through this ??? I also have 4 other dogs in the house that he has been mixing with I am so worried and praying that it’s a false positive

    Well done in giving this puppy a new home. I hope he gets the treatment and look forward to a happy life. Oh by the way, what a beautiful dog he is.

    Thankyou for your kind words! We will do all we can to keep him alive! He’s only 1 1/2 I need to spoil him for a few more years yet :)
