Skeery day, but we're okay!

Thank you to everyone who commented from the POTP blog post. If you didn't see, Jessie and I made a little oopsie and thought the little green bar we found was a yummy treat. Jessie ate most of it, and I had a little bit. Turns out it was rat poison!! Momma FREAKED OUT and got us both to the emergency vet ASAP. That was NOT fun. They gave us something that made us throw up over and over again. That's how the vet learned that we'd both eaten some. (Momma wasn't sure.)

Anyways, the vet says we'll both be fine. Momma got us to the vet quickly enough that we could throw most of that yucky stuff up. We had to eat some activated charcoal to absorb anything that might be left in our system. It's giving us black poop! But other than that, we're going to be just fine. Momma says she lost years off her life, but I think she's just exaggerating.

We are so very happy that you are both going to be OK. Mom had a very skeery experience with rat poisoning many years ago with one of our little cockapoos. It was a very long process, but the little dog that the vet wouldn't make it came back strong - after more than a year of healing. Thank goodness for your Mom's quick action and for emergency vets.

Hugs and Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

I am so glad you are both okay this was really scary for us too. Good job Mama forgetting both of you to the vet as quickly as possible. Watch out for those green bars

So happy you got proper care. With the "raisin incident" Abby learned how quickly I could drive through Chicago traffic, as she ate them while I was outside and I didn't know how much of a window there was to get Abby to puke. I called ahead. It was a Sunday so it wasn't our usual vet but a big vet hospital we had in our phone directory that was just a few miles away. I walked in the door shouting "raisin dog raisin dog!" and they immediately took care of Abby. Feel better soon!
