  1. Hello again to all! I hope everyone is safe, and healthy. So many people on this board remember my last thread from about 1 month ago, when I almost lost my dog Cody Mack due to a Rimadyl overdose. The support and well -wishes I received from this forum were incredibly! Quick update, Cody is just fine. His emergency vet, who not only owns BC’s, but also had extensive experience in Rimadyl overdosing, was “happily surprised” with Cody’s recovery. So thanks to everyone again! So my new problem is very embarrassing. Cody is now 8 months old. He is my 7th dog. I have always thought of myself at
  2. Well I didn’t expect that! Just to be clear, what he does is grab an occasional towel on the kitchen counter, and shakes his head violently. Like I’m sure a lot of our dogs do with toys that have a rope attached to it. It’s not like someone on a movie who’s in jail, and tries to Lassus a rope and try to grab some keys that are lying on the floor, he just got lucky I think and connected with the pill bottle. Was he trying to do that? I don’t know....he’s way smarter than I expected him to be.
  3. Thank you so much! And many thanks to everyone for the great support!
  4. UPDATE: Hello to all! I am so sorry, I thought I left a post last night, but I probably didn’t hit the “submit” tab. Cody is ok!!! His critical bloodwork that was done on Saturday evening came back “shockingly great”. His kidney function panel was not only normal, it was MUCH better than normal! His BUN was at .6, which is Outstanding. His creatinine level was “high normal”. Think of it like a human having a real low LDL, and a real high HDL. His Saturday team is what really did it. Constant IV’s, with too many meds to mention administered. The vet was amazed he got through this so well. Sh
  5. Another quick pic. Couple weeks ago.
  6. Wanted to say thank you for the kind words regarding Cody, and trying to make me feel better. I have not received any calls from the on call hospital vets today (scheduled at 5:00 PST), and the 4 calls I have made to the tech(s) have been positive. Tomorrow morning’s vet call at 6:00 I should find out if Cody’s kidney functions are normal, or if they’re plummeting. I am going to try and keep a positive attitude! I’ll update everyone later. Thanks again! UPDATE: Blood draw scheduled at 5:00 my time (3 mins), Day vet calling me in 1 hour for Cody’s kidney function results. This is
  7. That’s a great way to describe them. I’ve had 4 golden’s, including one classified as “Dark Dark”. They are nuts until they hit about 2. I thought I would be prepared for Cody. Well I guess I’m not. The pain and guilt I feel is incredible.
  8. Thank you for the “well wishes”. Great advice on the hydrogen peroxide. I actually did know that, but I couldn’t find it!! Another screwup by me. Of course I did find it after I got home. Figures huh? But great advise nonetheless.
  9. My dog Cody is in a vet hospital. I left him inside alone for 5 mins. I had a bottle of 100mg Rimadyl sitting WAY back on my kitchen island. The NSAID is for my wife’s 11 year old NSDTR. Apparently he used his new trick, grabbing a kitchen towel, getting his paws up on the counter, and swings the towel to grab something. I kid you not. He’s big for a 24 week BC, with 14” legs. I had to call poison control, then rushed him to the closest vet hospital that would take him to induce vomiting ASAP. My vet, which is also a hospital, is 1/2 mile away. They wouldn’t take him, so I had to drive 30 mins
