You're both adorable. Hoping Ripley has a good night, and starts responding to the doc's efforts.
(Now that I've seen you, it's even more upsetting. His little eyes look weak.) I hope he sleeps tonight, while his body is fighting away, like bodies do.

Fight Ripley!

Sneaky is the word.

Dogs are natural scavengers and will eat almost everything if they are allowed to.

The most important thing as a dog owner is to let them know who the head of the pack is.... YOU...

Unfortunately my first post on this thread was misunderstood by one member because of the way I typed my response.

Each dog (as us humans) has his/her own personality and will react in the way that he/she wishes to do so...

For those that have dogs it is very easy to distinguish inividual behaviour and learn to live and train each individual animal as per the pack "leader".

However and as a veterinary surgeon specialised in animal behaviour for over 30 years now... I always find it difficult to understand how someone can just leave their animals with someone who is not used to having "said animal" 24/24 and 7 out of 7 days and expect them to understand 100 per cent each individual animals behaviour.

Each and every animal is different.

For example, here is my "tribe" SORRY IF YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR HEAD TO THE SIDE AS I AM CRAP AT EDITING PICS AND AND DONT HAVE TIME RIGHT NOW :



Top of the pic : Our lab Noa who is now 8 months old : A Greedy little sod and very jealous (in the middle of pup training right now), he is being followed closely for a suspected knee dysplasia (IRM in 15 days).

He is a good dog but will eat his arse out if digested food was coming out of it and also likes to clean out the cat litter or cat poo that has been laid outside.

Give him a hand right now and he will take two legs (normal for his age...)

Bottom of the pic : Calamine : Our 9 year old EX Laboratory beagle (my second) who only thinks about eating her arse out too and knocking the bins (trash cans) over and ripping the guts out of any bin bag that has anything worth eatable... As well as any cat eggs lying around that have not been covered.

She has already jumped upon the table at Christmas and has knacked 2 Turkeys that took hours to cook!

She is a fugitive and will dig her way out of a nuclear bunker! That's beagles for you folks...!



This is Scooby Doo : 14 year old cross bredf Lab/Spaniel and MY sofa pooch when the missus is not around as normally the dogs are not allowed on the sofa... BUT he is 14 so is allowed a little freeway... "cough"

He has never hit a bin (trashcan) but will hoover up anything that falls off the table and occasionaly his tongue "accidently" slips out of his mouth to slurp whatever crumbs are available on the coffee table.

He is spoilt rotten and knows how to play around with my feelings and does it good too.

He is snoring/farting his head off right now in front of the patio window next to my desk whilst the 3 other dogs are pretending to look cold with their big brown sad doggy eyes and want to come in too on the other side of the window.

They all get to come into the house during the day or evening but each and everyone their time...)

Last but not at all the very least, JEDI :

Our 4 year old Belgium Malinois Shep with his broken ear :



I have had (we /he / I)) so much fun during training... The most intelligent dog I have ever had the honour to welcome into our family.

He listens, obeys and understands everything that myself, my wife or my son commands...

All 4 dogs have their own personality and have to be fed and considered in different ways and methods.

All of us here at home (humans and dogs) understand "dog talk"... NO harsh words, just eye contact and visible body language and everything is hunky dory.

However and as I said early on in my post, NOT everyone is capable of each and every dogs (or even cats) needs.

It is very easy to trust people that we know with our animals who are also family members but those people (including in-laws and even us veterinary surgeons) do not live with them 24/24, 7/7 and do not know every single thing that said animal is used to.

I can understand that Vasa is upset with his in-laws but at the same time I can also understand that his in-laws don't live with Vasas dog every day.

Looking forward to hearing that Rips make it... I have a good feeling that he will.

Warmest regards

Lags

Your dogs are Adorable
Thanks for sharing their pics


Especially living out here in the African Bush,a good solid fence is essential,and to regularly keep an eye on one's dogs through out the day just to see what they are up to.I mean there can be dead apes,poisonous snakes,leguans etc,plus the village dumpsters where they will gravitate to, the moment they can leave the yard. I had such a battle with the management of the mining company because we all live in employee housing,and they are too greedy to spend much on the upkeep. The fencing on the properties the employees live in, is for Their account,not the employees'.

So when my fence bacame dilapidated,the dogs started started getting out and taking trips to the dumpster bringing home plastic bags with sometimes just The grossest stuff imaginable.So i had to keep them mostly indoors while battling management,basically threatening them with shame and exposure in national newspapers,a national tv show that exposes rotten business practises and treatment of clients and employees. Had to email the local head office in Johannesburg,the proper head office in London,the South African Chamber of Mines,etc. Because what the dogs brought home were bags containing people's bio-haz waste among the other normal nasties of a trashbag.My son couldd hardly go into the yard to play,and i spent most of my day cleaning the pee and feces of the dogs in the house - so it was not too unhygienic inside the house. Such a stress. After about 2 weeks,during which they also threatened my hubby,their employee and told him to "Subdue and control me" they finally just fixed the damn fence.By that time i was so infuriated that i honestly would have gone national in the public media,with their sorry asses.

Dogs really,really like disgusting things,so ya it's essential to supervise them as much as you can,and contain them.

Vasa, I am so sorry about your baby, and I really hope everything turns out ok. As much as I love dogs, and as many losses as we have suffered with losing them, I wouldn't change a thing. They come into our lives for a reason. I am sending healing vibes your way.

I had no idea that this was an issue for dogs. I've had dogs eat so many things. I've had the holiday weekend, late night vet visits. It is never easy. wishing the best for you.

Update?

I spent last Christmas Day at the emergi-pet, as it involved a bag of Hershey's kisses, and a West Highland Terrier, and the place was PACKED. The waiting room was full of dogs throwing up.

Anyway. I'm starting to think we might not have good news about Ripley.

Very sorry to hear about your dog. Milkthisle is a very powerful herb and can be used for celleuar regrowth of the liver. Gave it to my mums cats after the vets gave up on her. It saved her life. Not trying to tell you what to do just trying to share information. I can work out the dose if you need.

Hope Dog better soon.

You know in this world of Shi lately (been a rough year) that actually made me feel better.

Good to hear, I have a sneaky suspicion he will be just fine..

Hug that guy for us!

Picked him up at 5 today! Has to take some meds for a few days then back in for more bloodwork. Doc told me when I picked him up that they'd never had a dog live after eating that much xylitol. So happy he's back!!!
