I'm glad she's finally feeling better!

Is there anyway to make sure she isn't eating any rats, or at least doesn't eat anymore of them? Hopefully if the neighbor is forced to clean up the trash, the rats will leave.

thanks all! She is getting better fast......her and Dex are tearing up the house right now. Her appetite is back to normal, she ate her full supper last night. I think she knows these pills are helping her because she gives me no hassle at all to take them. She is at the point i could just put them on the floor and she would lick them up. And she is super snuggly, she will just come over and cuddle you out of the blue, tuck her nose in under your chin and give you kisses.

It has been a long two months.

Thanks Chico.....

It really makes you think about how much you love your furry companions. I was thinking the other day at how lucky I was to have had healthy furbutts my whole life. Only one I had sick was my kitten Peanut, but I gave her the best life she could live for a year.

I have had my full share of bumps, colds, allergies.....but never have experienced what I did with Zoe this last two months. I was afraid to open my eyes in the morning, because I didn't know what was happening with her.

This has made me really think about those who take on animals with problems, true angels they are. And it makes me love my crew even more.....my neighbour couldn't believe what I was willing to do and pay to get Zoe the help she needed. I would sell the whole works just to make sure that she (and the three others) are healthy. They give me the most in my life, I hope I do them right in their short time here on earth.

Wahoo for Zoe!!!!! I am so glad the new vet found a med to help her.

Rats . Are they carriers of bacteria that can harm dogs I wonder.

Yes. As we've had occasion to find out , rodents can carry leptospirosis, among other things.

But I'd be worried about rat poison, too. If a rat is poisoned and wanders into reach and a dog eats it or finds the carcass and eats that, the dog can get sick, too.

I'm glad that Zoe is feeling so much better! It's been such a long haul--what a relief, eh, DCH?

Oh it is a huge relief HRP!!!

I was worried to about rat poison, but out of everyone around me only three people don't have dogs. My two immediate neighbours and then the one two houses down, but they have kids and are friends of mine. I highly doubt anyone in the immediate vicinity would lay down poison........well I hope not. I make sure for the first trip outside in the morning I go all the way out and search the property with her.

I hope it keeps going well and the icky poopies don't come back!

I'm glad Zoe continues to improve. I totally understand what a relief it is to finally see them return to health. When Parker was young and had constant diarrhea, I truly thought that it was going to turn out to be some kind of fatal disease since we had just lost Lacey the previous year and they came from the same lines.

I think that alot of people, even those with pets, don't think about what kind of danger it presents when they use poison for mice or rats. Just a few weekends ago, one of my DIL's aunts brought her dog to the lake - and within minutes of being out there, the dog found a dead mouse under her parents camper. I was the only one who noticed the dog picking up something under their trailer, so I hollered. Turns out my DIL's parents, who camp with us quite often, regularly set out mouse poison and were under the impression that it would not hurt dogs if they ate a mouse that had been poisoned.
