Thats a happy ending. Woof!
Hey guys, Sorry I had forgotten i had posted this thread as i went camping for a few days. My dog is almost at 100%... we are not really sure what it could have been but we (my family not the doctors) think it may have been bad food... The doctors were not sure about it at all...
Thats a happy ending. Woof!
What joy to hear this good news.

Glad he ended up alright. I'm not sure what brand, but there was a major recall of dog foods and treats recently. Perhaps that was the culprit?
Hey man, It's nice to hear she is feeling better.
Hoping for a full recovery.
Hope your dog continues to stay happy and healthy. I just read this morning of 1000 dogs that have been sickened or killed by bad chicken jerky treats. FYI to the dog lovers out there. The article is on MSNBC.

Great news. Having a sick dog is a lot like having a sick kid. You feel awful, but they can't really tell you what's wrong.
I am relieved that your dog has recovered! I know you are!In just the past four months, the Food and Drug Administration has fielded over 530 complaints from pet owners claiming their dogs suffered illness or death after eating jerky treats made in China, officials tell ABC News. The FDA has issued three separate warnings about Chinese jerky treats in the past four years -- advising owners who give their pets the snacks to watch the dogs closely for signs of illness. But since the agency says it has yet to find a "definitive cause" for the mystery ailments, it hasn't blamed Chinese treats for the illnesses, it hasn't named any of the well-known American firms like Purina that sell them, and it hasn't recalled any of the products. Dog owners and legislators are now demanding action.
Thanks for the update, nice to have some good news.
Fantastic news! I manage a local chain pet store and host adoptions year round. I have a soft spot for dogs and all critters.
The dog food recall was from Diamond Pet Foods which encompasses the brands Diamond, Chicken Soup for the (dog/cat) Soul, Taste of the Wild, Canidae, and I believe Wellness. To my knowledge the west coast was not affected, and it was a volutary recall of specific lot numbers. My supply has been limited while they try to catch back up to demand, but so far I haven't heard of any major horrors from this recall. Talk to your local pet store managers to find out if they were affected in the recall.

http://veterinarynews.dvm360.com/dvm...CategoryId=378A dog owner in the Chicago area has filed a class action lawsuit alleging that his 9-year-old Pomeranian died as a result of eating Nestlé Purina’s Waggin’ Train Yam Good dog treats. The fatality and resulting lawsuit are the most recent in a series of events illustrating the public’s growing anxieties over an apparent connection between chicken jerky treats from China and a surge of unexplained illness in dogs.
According to the lawsuit, filed on April 18 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois by Dennis Adkins of Orland Park, Ill., the dog became ill and died of kidney failure less than two weeks after consuming the treats in March. Adkins says he gave one of the treats to his dog daily for two days and that no other changes were made to the dog’s diet. His other Pomeranian was not fed the treats and did not become ill. The suit names as defendants Waggin’ Train LLC, the manufacturer of the product; Nestlé Purina Petcare Co., the corporation that owns Waggin’ Train LLC; and Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., the distributor.
The lawsuit states that although Nestlé Purina and Waggin’ Train had received complaints of more than 500 incidents in which dog treats containing chicken jerky imported from China caused dogs to become sick or die, they continued to market their product as being “wholesome” and placed no warnings concerning the product on the packaging. Additionally, it states that Nestlé Purina and Waggin’ Train knew there was a substantial risk of death or harm associated with its dog treats and intentionally concealed known facts concerning the safety of the dog treats in order to increase or maintain sales.
AWESOME NEWS!!!!! I will have a drink for you both.
I am glad that your dog is doing much better!!! Thank you for the update.
