One Expensive TURD!

I spent the last few days in and out of the vet clinic. In total Remo spent 36 hours in the clinic with an IV in his leg. He had a really bad case of food poisoning. He was vomiting, diarrhea, lethargic, and his stomach was sore to the touch. After xrays, blood panels, stool sample, and ultra sound, they determine he had a bad case of gastroenteritis. We think he may have nibbled on a bad turd that he found on the trail or may have digested some bad water at the marshlands. Needless to say he's on medication and a special diet of rice, chicken, and cottage cheese. We were so happy to get him back home today and he even managed a little tail wag. The technicians at the clinic, put this cute little scarf around his neck. I think he looks like a boy scout. Hopefully, he'll be back on the trails in a few days.


  1. Ah, poor Remo - glad he's on the mend...give him a big hug from me & a lick from Radar!

  2. Awww...sorry to hear that! I just hate not knowing what it was...Zoe got into something earlier this year & was sick, sick, sick! I at least hope she learned her lesson and won't eat it again.

  3. We've been through that too. Glad he's feeling better poor guy. I'm sure he's missing his romps in all those beautiful places.
