Now, Even the Dog is Sick!

October 23rd, 2007 at 02:37 am

Who would have guessed? The chihauhau now has exactly the same symptoms as my mom had.......so I dashed him off to the nearest vet this afternoon. (to the tune of $190.07....not even ER rates!)

He has the doggie version of Congestive Heart Failure. It was tough to watch with mom, and this was no easier!

Started on meds at the vets office, and came home with 2 prescriptions I have to figure out how to get down his teensy little mouth/throat starting tomorrow.

Pondering the old adage "God doesn't give you more than you can handle" this evening........and wondering just what the limit is here??? Smile

My aunt, who is still here........paid for the vet after she found out how much it cost. She said she was thinking of paying me anyway, for all the care she has been getting here since she fell a couple weeks ago. She has also fell in love with the dog, so felt like it was something she could do.

If this little guy wasn't spoiled enough before this episode.........now he will get to do anything he wants, whenever he wants!

    Since illness comes in threes, or so it seems, be thankful it was the dog and not you! Big Grin

    Sorry to hear about the dog. If the meds are pills, sometimes putting them in a bit of peanut butter or cream cheese, or tucking it in a piece of regular cheese, will make the dog want to eat it.

    I always found the trick to giving my dogs pills was to put it into one of their favorite "sticky" type treats like peanut butter etc. I take a small bit of bread, put on the pill and cover it with the PB. They eat it so fast they don't even realize they are taking medicine.

    Poor puppy, I hope he feels better. My puppy is too smart for the pill in the food, she eats the food and spits out the pill.
