Advil and dogs don't mix.


Wednesday afternoon Max thought it would be a good idea to chew open a bottle of ibuporfin.  I wasn't sure how many he had eaten and at the time he seemed fine so I didn't think much of it until later that night when his insides fell outside.  Luckily there is a 24 hour vet a few blocks from me so I brought the poor dude in a 3 am.  They prepared me for the worst so I thought I might not ever be bringing him home.  Luckily he has been doing better, I went for a visit today and he seemed comfortable and sleepy.  If things keep going as they are I will be able to bring him home tomorrow.

Oh no! I hope he starts feeling better!! I remember when my cat had Urinary Blocks and I had to decide whether I was going to put him down or pay for a costly surgery. It was the most horrific thing anyone could have asked me. Of course I went with the costly surgeries. I hope Max feels back to his normal puppy self soon!

How did things turn out Jessica. Max is such a cool dog, I hope he gets better. Still think he is deprived because he doesn't get to go duck hunting...just sayin'

Labs are notorious for eating all sorts of fun things... I would say the one that ate an entire sheet of pot brownies has to be the best one I have seen yet.
I hope that Max is doing well, kidneys, GI mucosa and all. Please keep us updated!
