One Sick Puppy
Our last dog would eat anything and this proves it!
Okay, so Heidi hasn’t always been “the sharpest tool in the shed” so to speak. She has always eaten anything and everything she could get her mouth on! Finally this habit had gotten the best of her. I noticed on this particular day that she didn’t want to come out of her crate, and in fact she stayed in there most of the day. I was concerned but not too worried, she has done this before when she has eaten pinecones, rocks, sticks etc. and had an upst tummy (duh). The next day though I noticed that she couldn’t lie down or get comfortable and that she was pacing. I called the vet and they said to bring her in immediately-they figured she had a life threatening blockage! So, after they had done the x-rays, the vet called to deliver the news: Heidi has swallowed what appears to be a necklace! She needed emergency surgery. After the operation, the vet called again and said he could not believe what they had found: 1 necklace, 1 toy gun, 9 bits of hair elastics, 1 large elastic still intact, numerous bits of pink plastic and 3 pieces of sharp wire!! Good grief! So after paying for the surgery and two weeks worth of meds, the bill was $1700!!!!! Anyone want to buy a dog?!
