Based on the data available for supportive care and treatment provided, a binary variable (0 = treatment not provided, and 1 = treatment provided) was generated. Additional binary variables were created detailing the type of supportive care or treatment including (1) the provision of heat as a supportive measure for possible shock, (2) administration of oral fluids like commercial nectar plus solution as hydration and/or for energy supplementation, and (3) administration of medications like a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (meloxicam; dosage 1.0 mg/kg on admission to the rehabilitation center and 0.5 mg/kg BID for 3–5 days) and steroids (dexamethasone) as well as antibiotic therapy (enrofloxacin; dosage 15 mg/kg BID 7–10 days). All treatments included in the study were provided by rehabilitation centers.
