As you know OUR emphasis is IMHA & pretty much everyone knows that. Because we are hearing MORE & MORE about this TRAGEDY than LESS... and STILL we see nothing..
We felt we needed to step up and BOL. Honestly we don't get why this isn't a household word around Dogster yet.. it should be spreading like the BAD WILDFIRE IT IS!!
******better news of this than GET ME 10,000 VIEWS ********and you get a special gift!!
that clogs the airways around here!!********
BLAH BLAH BLAH
Our first entry mentions names and BEGS the question of WHY IS IT US posting this??
and, to PAWrotect the innocent, AND because we care about them, we have removed their names and links, even though our hope was that you could stop by PAWhaps say a PAWrayer with them or rejoice that this puppy was alright..
But because we know that they must be SO grateful yet terribly sad it happened on their watch, we decided that we'd approach the warning differently. Hence, Angel mica-the wonderpup AND our Belgian listerv begged me to make a SAGO PALM & DOGS ALERT
Quite recently, a very kind family almost lost an even more kind puppy to SAGO PALM POISONING.. She was very VERY lucky, and although we’d hoped to see WARNINGS posted ALL OVER DOGSTER by now, we HAVE NOT.
Don't get me wrong, family we care for.. we wished you ALL well then and now. It may seem as though we do less, but by speaking out in this way, we hope that you see that we care even more for doing so. If you or others cannot, then I cannot help you.
PAWLEASE READ and HEED the WARNINGS.
There is nothing glib about it mates.
We THANK GOD & DOG that she made it back safely. GO AHEAD & Google it yourself and see the majority are NOT as FURtunate.
WE ALSO Thank YOU for your HELP to CROSS POST!!
We are posting but one that crossed our desk, BUT there are many-and we want to know WHY no one is talking about this.. IF YOU ARE< WHERE ON EARTH ARE YOU????
as people who live with dogs know- there are ALL kinds of hidden dangers.. Many of us have posted links to the hazards around us..in an effort to HELP PAWrotect one another.. FUR GOODNESS SAKE!!
This one came way too close FUR comfort, so PAWlease USE any & ALL to make the point.
OUR pets & even small children NEED our protection. I am SO very sad to be making this post, because I think that we all have a duty to act on behalf of eachother.. I yammer on until the freaking blue cows come home about IMHA & IM (immune-mediated) disease, and I think it takes away from something we feel is so important, but speaking out on this..
IS IMPORTANT too.
I just don't think it should have to come from my mouth.
BUT it happened again, that a dog outside Dogster was adversely affected..
anyway, I'll close now but it is not without disappointment.
(and this obviously is mel and not the lovely mirra BOL!!!!!)
PLEASE Cross post:
Greetings from the Burnt Hills Veterinary Hospital.
Our goal is to make our clients the most educated pet owners in the community.
Recently the home improvement stores have stocked their shelves with a plant called "Sago Palm". This is a decorative houseplant that you may be tempted to purchase.
If your pets ingest ANY part of this plant it will cause liver failure. Even with aggressive veterinary treatment 70% + of these pets will die. We implore you to keep your household free of this plant. We are devastated when we are unable to help your pets.
Go to our website and get a look at this plant.
Thank you for the information on that plant. My mom had one before she got me, but it died, and now my mom is glad. Please keep posting information about plants like that, so people get informed!!
