Telling Tuesday




This is a very sad little dog. He was vomiting all day Sunday. When this happens he goes outside to eat anything he can find, thus inducing more vomit. Well I guess he ate something that he was allergic to. In a 30 min. period this is what his face looked like. His entire face and mouth started to swell. So much so that he needed a steroid shot and some epinephrine to get him back to normal, well semi normal. I couldn't even lift his lip up to see his gums, his mouth was so swollen. I guess this is a lesson to us, don't let the dog eat everything in site!

I've never heard of a dog having an allergic reaction before. That is funny. He looks pretty miserable!

Ooooooooooooo poor Yoda!!
I wonder if he knows what it was?

OH MY WORD! I didn't know having a dog could be so hard. Maybe it's just Yoda? Course, maybe it's just that he's taken on the illness' of his masters, and you do carry an epi pen around...

hi Brooke,
I was wondering how Yoda did. I'm glad you knew of vet Liz to call in case of emergency. I'm glad he recovered.
I'm guessing you were overbooked while in Utah. Hope to catch you next time.
