The House with the Pink Shutters. Paeloti the Street Dog – Part Two
Dogs die. But dogs live, too. Right up until they die, they live. They live brave, beautiful lives. They protect their families. And love us, and make our lives a little brighter, and they don’t waste time being afraid of tomorrow.” – Dan Gemeinhart
We knew he was really sick when he stopped eating. This time he had consumed something really rank. Every half hour all night we were taking him out to be sick or go to the loo. He moaned in pain all the time and when morning came we rushed him to the vet ( they don’t operate at night) . Our neighbour , Kristoula, who thinks she is a expert having kept goats and chickens all her life told us that he would sort himself out and come good. Two lots of IV fluids, intravenous antibiotics, oral medication, 10 days of worry and sleepless nights later he has started to eat and drink again but is still not really well yet. I put him outside for a while so Kristula could make a fuss of him. “See I told you he would come good ” she said.
Sounds like he “came good”, with lots of help from the vet 🙂 Hopefully he will soon be fully healed. I had a dog that would make regular trips to the town dump to chow down. Luckily he only ended up with a few days of lying around over-stuffed and didn’t eat anything toxic. Sounds like your dog is one to watch closely as he seems to get into toxic stuff easily.
I hope he’s soon well, I know how worrying it is.
Thanks – he finally picked up today
