Kiki don't eat the mushrooms....

This morning didn't start out so good.....


6 a.m. - Miss Kiki ate a mushroom when we went outside for potty. It was raining and dark and I actually said out loud to her "you better eat anything I can't see".....premonition? We went inside and within half an hour things went from....upset tummy to HORRIBLE. There was so much, I couldn't clean it up fast enough. In the midst of my "don't panic" I looked through the vomit and found an entire mushroom! I was pretty upset on the phone with emergency vet clinic, as I described the events and they tried to tell me their "procedures and costs"...look lady, talk to me later, I'm getting into my car. The clinic is across the city. 20 minutes with no traffic. Here I was in morning traffic, with a sick, shaking puppy in my lap. I should cyber apologize to all the other drivers I cut-off or swore at this morning. By the time we got to the hospital I wasn't looking very good. Don't think I smelled so good either, but thankfully my own sense of smell is bad! They did some blood work, gave her a shot to control vomitting and told me my choices were leaving her there for the day or monitoring her at home. Since my vet is less than 5 minutes from my house, I picked home. She is now resting comfortably with the rest of the furry ones.

I need a nap.

How scarey! Poor Kiki, I hope her tummy feels better soon.

Ugh I hate to vomit and shake.But I like the emergency doctor. Not sure if seeing the nice doctor is worth the symptoms, though. Get well Kiki.
Love Noodles

Yeah. On the way to the vet to check some bleeding from my spay surgey, Mom was SO flipped out, she forgot there was a chocolate donut in the back. I FOUND IT!!! Yummy.
Not so fun when the vet gave me throw up medicine....and mom was kinda pissed @ the $60 too.
Hope you feel better soon, Kiki

I know how you feel driving in rush hour with a sick puggie on your lap. So glad to hear that miss Kiki is feeling better and you can now relax some too. Many hugs to sweet Kiki...no mushrooms they are fungus girl!

Hugs,

Yikes! Hope everything continues to get better. Gotta love those 6am trips to the emergency vet . . . we've all been there. Sometimes when people cut me off in traffic I try to think that perhaps they are rushing their poor puppy to the vet . . . probably not, but it keeps me from getting too irate!

Oh my goodness, I'm sorry I missed this post earlier.

My heart goes out to you. I hope Kiki is doing better and this story brought tears to my eyes as it made me remember Anakin.

Oh Punchy, we are here and will be thinking of you all~

Hugs!!

what a sin! Hope she is on the mend and you are feeling better. Why must our poochies scare the daylights out of us!

Poor Kiki and poor mama. Maybe Kiki has learned her lesson. Tallulah sure hasn't. She hasn't eaten anything toxic, but she does have a tendency to swallow stuff. Saran wrap, chewies like pieces of bully stick or tendon. Mom makes her swallow salt to throw it up. Gross, but it works.
