Glad to hear it! Any decisions about class this week?
Oh poor Poppy. And you. Hope you and the whole gang are able to get some good sleep soon.Excellent news on the digestion, less so on the learned reaction - I think you are very wise to avoid that class for a while. After a week of improving poos Poppy woke me an hour after we went to bed and has now done two yellow splats... I have dosed her with tummy medicine and will wait an hour before trying to sleep again.
Hope you're sleeping soundly right now.It's been just about an hour with no aftershocks so I think we will try going back to bed. Hope Peggy's tum stays on an even keel, and that she quickly forgets about barking at passing dogs.
I just saw this post. I feel so bad about Peggy. Hopefully she recovers without any long-term effect. Our first standard poodle, at ~ 2yrs. old, went into the back yard after the yard was sprayed. We waited few hours longer than the company rep. stated it was safe to allow our dog to go into the yard. By next day, she developed diarrhea and began omitting. We ran to the vet. Vet asked about eating anything or walking anywhere, then performed some blood work, and put our fur baby on IV fluids. After that she explained that dogs absorb pesticides through their paw pads rapidly. Depending on the chemical, how hot it was, length of the time the dog walked on the sprayed grass, the condition of the dog worsens. We got lucky, we came for help just fast enough, before her systems began shutting down.Grrrrrr. That makes me SO MAD. And sad.
I wonder how many animals get treated needlessly each year for all sorts of possible ailments, possibly doing even more harm to their poor bodies, when it's actually pesticide exposure.
Glad Fluffy was okay.
I mostly steer clear of this ingredient, too. It used to give my mini mix terrible diarrhea.Could be high glycerin content in treats... cheap treats give my Sammy
