Eeks! Cat!

Thanks for the Beagle well wishes, guys! She ate a bit more today. I'm wondering if the corn husks she ate and then threw up might have cut up her mouth. Hopefully she'll be better tomorrow. It's been 4 days.

Just got another call from the animal hospital. Shreddy is doing fine, eating well and all that stuff. His radioactivity readings were at 12 microsieverts this morning and a little less than 12 a few minutes ago. They will check again tomorrow morning and give me a call. I might be able to bring him home tomorrow.

When a pet presents her/his tummy for rubbing, it is a sign of total trust. They are presenting their most vulnerable part of their body to you. A part they protect at all costs.

One for Shreddy. What level does it have to be so it is safe to bring him home?

Thanks Addie. He has to be at 10 or less or maybe it's less than 10.

When I asked, the vet tech said that no, he wasn't showing any signs of developing any super powers.

Just don't forget Cat is still looking for that mushroom cloud.

Hope Shreddy can come home tomorrow, Taxy!

Beagle is now on generic Prilosec for 5 days, vet is suspecting an ulcer. He also recommends a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice.

She ate some of the Benefuls Chicken Medley this morning, but wouldn't touch it when I offered more when I got home from work. She still will have nothing to do with her previously beloved Iams Lamb and Rice. I opened a can of Hormel canned chicken breast, she ate that instead. DH is picking up a whole chicken or chicken thighs, whichever is available, and I'll boil them without vegetables or seasoning. Sounds disgusting to me, but hope it works! Otherwise, she's much perkier than before. I still wonder if it's something with her mouth or teeth.

Poor beagle. I hope something works to make her feel better soon. Is it possible that she ate Not Food?

Thanks. Yes, dried corn husks. But as dogs eat grass to calm a sick stomach and make them puke, we think she did this to self-medicate.

So she will get boiled leg quarters. And of course, white rice is what's rec’d, all I have is brown rice. Wish I'd looked at the recipes before DH returned from the grocer
