You may say- if a person is already strapped for cash, perhaps they should not get a dog.
To which I say- how dare you.
Kiah the Wonder Dog had a little oops on Sunday. We made it almost three whole weeks without an incident. Kiah, who is 70% stomach and 30% fluff, ate another dog’s thyroid medicine. This is something the dog books don’t warn you about. They don’t say, “when socializing your puppy with another dog, make sure the older dog does not offer your puppy its thyroid medicine because he doesn’t want to take it himself.” (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)
John, of course, was beside himself. We found an emergency pet center and John sped Kiah there to expel all poisonous contents from her stomach. Kiah is fine and has suffered no side effects. John is now in therapy.
The cost of taking a puppy to the vet on a Sunday? Aye carumba.
Health coverage for all dogs! And maybe partial dental coverage, too.
