Something's Fishy

Here's some fun math on a rainy Wednesday.

What do you get when 1 cocker spaniel pup ingests 30,000 milligrams of fish oil?

Wellllllll, about 37 panicked tears, 3 calls to emergency vets, poison control, and your mom, force feeding 2 tablespoons of vomit-inducing hydrogen peroxide, 10 minutes of nervous, anxious waiting, 4 throwing up "episodes," 82 high-pitched, "SADIE?!" cries to insure that the pooch is still alive, and zero hours of sleep.

It's going to be a good, solid day.

Sounds familiar... like when a certain golden retriever pup drank a bottle of contact solution... I hope Sadie feels better soon!

Oh man- I am sorry. Our golden retriever Marley once ate 2 bags of Hershey kisses. Christmas Eve night- that was a fun trip to the emergency vet.

Oh my gosh, poor puppy!! so glad she's going to be ok!

Once our dog ate an entire PAN of brownies and I was a mess. I was convinced she was going to die and I followed her around for 3 days and talked to the vet a million times. It's amazing how strong our pets can be!

Oh no!!!! They can get themselves into such trouble with food sometimes. Hope Sadie is feeling better and tonight is a bit more restful.

Oh No!! Puppies are the worst at that. We were pet sitting a standard poodle & he got into his kidney medication. I wanted to die! He was ok though, he didn't get much of it, just 2 extra pills. It was almost an emergency vet trip!
