So happy to hear all is well .
You did the right thing - straight to the vet and it was diagnosed and now you have a sense of relief .
I totally understand the feelings of panic that you felt and all the apprehension this episode caused .
Glad to hear he is once again his perky self ..
Although you cant always see what they are eating -or sniffing in - we have taught Logan to "leave it" If we see him heading to something we dont want in his mouth, we say leave it and he moves on. You need to train them to do it with treats, but now he does it without treats. We also do the "drop it" command - so when he comes to me with sock, underwear or something nasty in his mouth, I say drop it and he will. It is a good thing to teach them I think - although Lily & Lexi just look at me & gobble up whatever is in their mouth. So we are 1/3 successful in our household!
I really need to work on that "leave it" command. Maddie will put anything in her mouth. My house is pup proof, but outside is another thing. I have to watch her like a hawk. She'll put twigs, leaves, cat poop, or anything else she finds in her mouth. Yuck!!
I'm glad to hear that Nigel seems to be doing better. It is so scary when anything happens to such little pups. The other day Mirabel was upstairs with my son as I had to take a different dog to the vet. When I walked in the door she must have gotten really excited and fell all the way down the steps! It scared me so badly and my son thought I must be dying cause I was screaming so loud. It was scarey to watch her bounce head over heels all the way down. She was ok and didn't seem any worse for the wear. I think it scared me a lot more than her.
