I am so thankful to hear the good news that Gizmo is on the mend and that is awful about the treats from China. We shouldn't be buying anything made in China but that's another topic!!!

Will be praying for continued healing for sweet Gizmo.

Very glad to hear that Gizmo is much better, thank God for vets.

So sorry MYBULLDOGS for Winston. It's always a hard thing to handle, the loss of a pet.

Peace and long life - Jules

So glad he is feeling better. His hug must have been thrilling. One of the topics here in Dog Lovers is for home made dog treats. Check it out. You can make your own treats, and be at peace.

Let me say thanks for all your prayers and kind wishes. I saw Gizmo at 6:00 tonight and he is so much better, he jumped up in my lap when I saw him. He still has not eaten and has diarrhea but it is getting much better. So I came home and looked at the treats I have been feeding him and guess what they are made in "China". I am so upset that these treats almost caused us to loose Gizmo. I read all the symptoms and he has them all. We were feeding him Dingo Mini Treats with Chicken and Sweet Potatoes....they were his favorite. I will let the doctor know but all these treats are going in the trash. How can this keep happening. Please check all the treats that you feed your dogs.....I hope no one else has to go through this it is so heartbreaking because they can not tell you what is wrong. We are hoping he can come home tomorrow. Thanks again for all your well wishes an prayers.
Also you are in my thoughts and prayers, so sorry to hear about your poor Winston. Hugs!

I am with everyone here. I am so sorry about Gizmo & hope the news is much better by this posting.

Also, my condolences to Winston's family. It is a very hard day when we lose our little ones.

Poor Gizmo. He is such a sweetie. I'm curious. Did they test him for Parvo? Also I wonder if you gave him any treats that were made in China. If so, I would let the Vet know. Sure hope they can find out what the problem is.

I am so sorry to hear that Gizmo isn't feeling good and hope by now he has improved. Our furbabies are so sad when they don't feel well and we feel so helpless.
Keep us posted and sending hugs and prayers.

Dear Martha.....
I hope that by the time your read this - your Gizmo will have shown some improvement. We hurt so much for our sick pets - as someone said - because they can't tell you where it hurts! Did the vet give you any prognosis? How old is Gizmo?

My baby, Lucy, is the picture of health at 11. But every now and then, she has a stomach problem - and I panic! In her case, the vet thinks she has IBS.....and with a little medicine.....she recovers in a few days. But I worry so.... So I truly feel for you.

My heart is with you ..... and I hope to hear good news from you. Please keep us posted on your baby's progress. OK??

Big Hugs,
Libby

A sick animal is worse than a sick child. a pet can't tell you what's wrong. you loose valuable time trying to find out.

So sorry to hear about Gizmo. Glad you were able to get him to the vet right away. Did they give you any idea what it might be? It makes my heart very sad for you at this time. I know how we agonize over our fur babies when something isn't right. Please continue to update his progress. Thank you! emoticon

Please keep my puppy Gizmo in your thoughts he is so sick right now. He was fine yesterday and all of a sudden he began vomiting, he threw up so much he just collapsed on the kitchen floor. After that he staggered over to his pads and had bloody stools, what in the world, we are baffled. We got him to a animal hospital fast, when we got there his pulse was very weak. We have no idea what he might have eaten, or if he got bite by something. He is very weak and still not moving around very much today, they have him on an IV and pain meds. My heart is broken to see him so lethargic and not responding to us in his usually happy manner. His picture is on my page. Also, Max misses his big brother so much he is just laying around...... we all have broken hearts right now. Thanks in advance for your thoughts and prayers.
