One Sick Girl

Our Isabelle is a chow hound. She loves to eat. Anything. I think she found some rabbit poop yesterday. She threw up 11 times. It was like she was trying out for a part in the canine version of The Exorcist. Honestly, it was frightening. Eventually we did the chicken and rice routine but that wouldn't stay down. Much later she was able to have a small piece of toast with a little chicken broth on it. She is much better today and I am already on rabbit poop patrol. Unfortunately she is much quicker at finding it than I am.

Oh, I am so sorry. I know how upsetting it is when our little ones get sick. I hope that she feels better soon and doesn't dine on more rabbit poop. I would probably fast her for a day and then introduce the chicken and rice.

Poor Isabelle when mine got sick the doctor said just a liquid diet for the first day. Then chicken and rice. But that was the runs. I wounder if rabbit poo would cause that?

I hope Isabelle is feeling better.

I can't imagine what they find so enticing about rabbit poop. Piper eats and rolls in everything...the more disgusting, the better

I doubt it was the rabbit poop that made her sick my vet says it harmless, redtail hawk poop looks alot like rabbit poop it can be harmful, chances are she picked up something else from the lawn. In the spring we have so many baby bunnies it is impossible to find and clean up all their poo, it is guys love it...yuck! This is the time of year there are a lot nuts falling from the trees many are poison such as black walnut, I always remove the nuts and the squirrels often leave bones and stuff, it is good you are patroling the yard. Hope your pup feels better soon.

yeah I was wondering why you think it's the rabbit poop? Has she been like this before?
