I'm so sorry, Missy! I'm glad they are okay and will keep them in our thoughts and prayers.

I hadn't heard that xylitol was bad for dogs, scary stuff!

I also didn't know the ASPCA charged for phone calls That sucks, i'd say it wouldn't be fair to those not having $65 laying around but we all know owning a pet isn't free and we should always have a little tucked away for any emergency vet visit.


hugs,
Kara

That is REALLY scary! I'm glad all is going well. I guess I need to change the location of my candy dish! It sets on the kitchen table, filled with sugar free hard candies. Chris is horrible about not shoving the chair in after he sits at the table, and more then once I've come home to find that Boo has gotten up on the table and I'll find a couple candies laying around on the floor and slightly chewed into! Thank God we haven't had a catastophe!

This is one of the reasons Kodi is always confined when we are out of the house. Not because of xylitol specifically, but because you just never know what a dog is going to get into while you are out of the house. People get busy, are in a rush, and don't always notice things that could be a potential danger for a dog. And if you have children or young adults coming in and out, the dangers are that much greater.
