Thanks kittykat, that was great.
BTW was he feeding them leftover PIZZA? Looked like it.
I dont know -- HOPE NOT!
we almost lost my dog this week to PANCREATITUS !!
I confess my guilt that it was probably my fault
for giving into doggy treats and people food - but I found out the hard way it can kill your dog at a moments notice. They can go into shock rather quickly.
My dog is or was so healthy and happy - and when he begged I gave in - he became picky eater, and i had read how people give their dogs people food
so I got kinda lax and was making him his dog food and mixing peopel food in it, based on the info that when I was a kid we gave our dog table scraps, let him lick the bowl etc.. BUT NO MORE can we do this.
Let me tell you friends - he got really sick one night . vomiting and having diarreah really bad.. so I took him to the vet and he gave me meds but the next day NOTHING would stay down either, long story short had to take him back again, but he nearly died,, they kept him in the hospital there
for 4 days on IV with fluids an antibiotics!
vet explained :
that you can give a dog the same thing - even a hot dog - as a snack
for 5 years and ONE TIME,, only ONE TIME on othe 6th year
it can have this effect,,,, I HAD NO IDEA!
hes doing good now ,, he came home on Monday - and he is now on a special BLAND diet of spec food I can ONLY buy at the vets ( OF COURSE ) and its expensive!
Now he cant have any snacks of any kind ... -- maybe down the road with vet approval, not sure, b ut right now ,, he is only eating
tiny tiny meals 4 times a day and Im still giving him meds.
SO PLEASE watch the video - realize how lucky we are to have our PETS with us!
HEED MY WARNING - do NOT give your pets ANYTHING but what your vet tells you.
if you are not using special food he did say cooked chicken , rice
and a few veggies,, are ok.... too late for my dog though.
and also a few fruits - but I was told there is a list on the SPCA
that tells you what is ok to print out.
Even store bought doggies treats ARE DANGEROUS - and so much stuff is NOT TO BE TRUSTED!
Im here to not only share the vid- but to tell my story!
THANK GOD OUR LITTLE DOG - who looks like the ones in the video
IS GOING TO BE OK!
