Print Story Let's hope my puppy is okay

Teh dawg got taken to the vet this morning.  SHe's had diarrhea for a couple of days, and this morning it turned bloody.

Teh v3t didn't think it was anything to worry about since she didn't have any other symptoms (no abdominal pain / swelling, no fever, no lethargy or loss of apetite), so he gave her some antibiotics and the doggy equivalent of immodium, and wants me to bring her back when it firms up a little with a stool sample (the one I brought in this morning was just blood and mucus).

Will advise.

Things are going well on $toothpaste.  They're heavily into Spring and Hibernate, which are things I've wanted to learn, but their CMS integration is rather baroque and intrusive.  Fortunately, I think I'm going to be below the web tier for the most part.

Gotta run.

One of our pups ate a buckeye. She crapped all over the house for about 3 days. Luckily, she's a big dog and was able to survive it. We didn't figure out the cause until I saw her standing on her hind legs trying to eat another one.

I love my pups, but they aren't particularly intelligent.

Are you sure he wasn't just keeping horse-chesnuts in his mouth ? (since they're about the same size as crabapples...) Check his paws to see what he's holding..

I don't understand this at all.

could potentially be because of the irritation of frequent pooing, and because there's nothing left to poo but colon keeps on trying.

anyway, pet the puppy, and i'm sorry about all the messes.
Send me to Austria!
