|Me with Mum, don't I look cute!|
|That was not a good idea on reflection!|
Fortunately the vets were able to get to work on her and although arriving in quite a poorly condition her fighting spirit and strong constitution no doubt assisted in her quick recovery and she is now fully on the mend.
It transpires that Chris had been replanting some daffodils in his garden the day before and she had eaten one of the bulbs. Chris was unaware of how lethal a dog eating daffodils can be. The flowers and leaves are also toxic and it takes only 15 grams to kill a dog. There is no antidote and the only treatment is to make the dog sick and to get the dog straight to the vet. The dog will most likely need to go on a drip while recovery takes place.
Our thanks go to the Vets and staff at City vets in Exwick for their excellent care and help in treating Bebe.
|I'm ok, no really - no more bulbs for me!|
See you all next week when I will be doing a blog on the B litter’s visit to the farm.
