    Default Bloody Idiot Dogs

    Some or one, not sure which, has pulled the gate open in their room and climbed up on a drawer to get hold of a Drontal packet.

    The idiots have swallowed up to 8 tablets.

    Keith (Vet) laughed and said just to watch for vommiting or diarrhoea. So far so good, no-one is showing any signs.

    Damn little pigs.... they're worse than children!!

    They are determined to send me grey and make me old before my time.

    My husband always says the name Pug is spelt wrong. There should be an "i" in the middle instead of a "u".

    Typical greedy Pugs, Anne. I find it amazing that the average Pug manages to survive into old age with all the weird and wonderful stuff they consume. I think most Pugs have cast iron guts.

    One of the worse things my gang ever did to me was back in the days before they invented chewable monthly heartworm medication. My five were on ordinary monthly tablets. Mary, Brigit, Roane, Puck and Pagan lined up for their tablets and each tablet went down down the hatch. I swear it did.

    Half an hour later I found one tablet in the middle of the floor.

    Talked it over with two different Vets. One said "Take a gamble. Don't waste your money dosing all of them again." The other said, "Leave it a week and dose them all again." I dosed everyone seperately a week later. After that I went onto chewables.

    At least you gave your Vet a good laugh. It won't have a bad affect on the epileptic one, will it?

    I wish my lot would snaffle up the wormers! It's always a battle of wills, even the spot-on treatments I have to do by stealth - or they all scatter in different directions!

    Glad they didn't suffer any bad side effects from the raid.

    Sounds like a mighty feat though that they got to them, but they're like kids aren't they, can't take any chances.
    Glad they are ok health wise from the experience.

    I refer to them as idiots because I can.

    Worm tablets are FAR from dangerous meds so you can also let that one drop. Why do you think my Vet laughed when told? If they were so dangerous, don't you think both he and I would be in a panic?

    I don't consider myself an idiot for "letting" it happen because I took all the neccessary precautions and they were not left within reach. It is just that Pugs are such little pigs and so greedy that they will consume anything, and I mean anything!

    They are so piggy that last Christmas, I had a hamper of goodies that was given to me as a gift, on the dining room table. One of them (or several) manage to climb up onto the table and knock the hamper to the floor where they all then proceeded to tear open the coffee, biscuits and other items in the hamper.

    Another example of their extreme need to eat. I came home from a wedding one night to discover one of my Pugs missing. I looked out the backyard and found the poor bugger with a plastic container tightly wedged on his head. The container had the remanants of garden fertisliser in it that I had mixed with water to put on the gardens. I can't put the pellets straight on because they eat them...I only made that mistake once and ended up with dogs pooing fertiliser for days - eeergh!

    The container had blown off the table and he must have decided it smelt nice enough to eat...and stuck his head in. Luckily for him I came home as the air was definitely getting thin in there and he was actually beginning to get a little weak!

    GreysareGreat - I love worming and flea time as I can just give it to them and they will eat it out of my hand without looking twice! Pugs are gluttonous little creatures.

    DH - I am not sure that Monte got any to be honest. It seemed to be Olivia that was the main culprit. Wormers don't usually affect him at any rate. The only issue we may have had was if he developed any vomitting or diarrhoea as this would mean that his anti-epileptic meds may not be properly absorbed.
