Fast thinking! I've had to give peroxide to a dog before and it was pitiful to watch....he threw up...or tried to...all day long. But, it worked and saved his life and us a vet bill.
Hi
I was relieved because it happened within a couple of minutes. My cat was right by us and growling at one point as I was putting the syringe into his mouth ,bless him he stayed right by him even after he recovered. They're a real team :) I think I would have been in a bad way had it lasted an hour. That must have worried you big time.

I felt pretty bad about it, looked like he was trying to throw up food he had eaten as a pup. But, it did get the rat poison he had just eaten out of his gut so I could bury it. He wretched throughout that day and looked miserable....hard to watch but I was hoping it taught him a lesson about snatching up any food he finds and gulping it. It didn't....he was a hog about food until the day he died.

I'm sorry he died, it's really tough losing them. Betting he had a good life with you and your family. They give us more than we sometimes realise. Do you have a dog now? Years I grieved over my old dog then one just kept coming back to me no matter how tried too resist. Then we got a kitten turn up and after a year or so living alone, he decided we were his family. I guess some animal's choose where they want to be.

My best dogs ever were the ones who chose us and not the other way around. Yes, Jake had a wonderful life here and died on a good day, though he could no longer get around much he perked up when he thought he was going on a walk with his favorite people. That was two winters ago now and we still miss him here....he was an integral part of our homestead and our lives.

Got two dogs right now, both livestock guardian dogs of the Anatolian breed. One of them is slowly worming his way into my heart, while the other is on probation and if she doesn't lose her hard head when it comes to livestock, she's not going to get to stay here. Everything has to live in peace with one another here or they don't get to stay.

About the living in peace, I'm with you all the way. Dogs are interesting characters with thoughts of their own. Still wolf's in some ways, I saw a progame way back showing how the bad guys gets alienated out of the pack until they can earn respect again..I hope this lady learns fast. :) . Is she seriously attacking?. I really hope you can get through to her , if that's the case.

I've just looked up this breed, they are beautiful creatures. The article suggested that they need serious training from a young age. How old are they,? Such a great asset for live stock.

My Anatolians are 13 mo. and 3 mo. right now. The older seems very trainable and mostly eager to please, though he has his own mind on some things he's still showing himself a good asset. The younger also seems eager to please when she is with me, but when I'm not around she goes back to bad behavior that we've trained on extensively. That's why she's on probation. I don't have time for willful or stupid animals in my life and on the farm, so she will be sold if she doesn't show improvement by 5 mo. When it's a pet folks can afford to be flexible on bad behavior, but when it's a working dog all bets are off when it comes to harassing livestock.

With you on that decision, hope she'll get a good home, if it comes to having leave. You can't be losing your other animals. I really hope she is able to adapt, maybe she will learn a little from the older dog, 3 months old there's time yet. What animals do you have? Thanks for your guidance on sleep, I always swore banana's helped, but been eating more with melatonin, its help plus getting rid of a cotton sateen sheet that was another thing making me wake up. Something feels strange with those sateen bed linens. Nice chatting bee. :) thanks
