Sophie's in the hospital

I am so upset right now, I feel like I'm in a nightmare. Last night after dinner, I was taking my supplements and a vitamin D fell on the floor and I didn't know it.It was a 50,000 u perscription one. Sophie got it and bit into it before I got it from her. The soft gel was empty, so I called the emergency vet and took her right away. They said without treatment she would probably die. I had to leave her there and they made her vomit and put her on iv fluids.I picked her up this morning to take her to my regular vet this morning.
She has to stay on fluids until Wednesday morning when I can pick her up.She's also having charcoal treatments. I'm so scared. They said this can cause kidney failure and other things. I feel so guilty for not being more careful. When I picked her up she was still so cute and licky.I hated taking her to another bad place. I'm also worried how this will affect her if she is okay.This has to be such a horrible experience for her. I'm going to visit her later to try to get her to eat something, but I doubt she will because she's not such a big eater anyway.

It sounds like you caught her in time and got help for her. I know you are worried and I hope you will hear good news today from your vet. Both of you will be in my thoughts and prayers. Please, keep up posted. ((hugs))

I know this is a nightmare, but thank God you found out in time. It could have been so much worse. I'll be praying for Sophie till I hear she's completely well. Don't worry about leaving her in a "bad place." At this moment in time the bad place would be at home. They have to monitor her to make sure she's okay. I know you feel guilty, but it will make you much more careful in the future. I'll be thinking of you both.

OMG I am so sorry for you. I hope everything gets better soon. My daughter takes many medicines daily and I am always worried this can happen to me. It is something that can happen to anyone. The problem is that these puppies are way too fast and curious... Cheer up, everything is going to be OK.

I sometimes drop pills and I get real nervous till I find them. I am sure you are beside yourself with worry, but you should project a calm energy to Sophie. Can you go visit her at the vet? But remember, if you can be calm! So easy for me to say, but it is something I have so learned in rehabilitating my rescues when they encounter something that is scary to them (but definately not the same as having a poisin in their system).

I am praying for a speedy recovery for Sophie.

Good job on finding the empty pill right away. I'm thinking positive thoughts for you and Sophie. I'm sure the vet will take good care of her.

Rosie ate rat poison and survived without any complications. The trick is to get them to the Vet immediately and it looks like you did that. Be calm.
