This weekend, Tasha continued to be sick. Not terrible, but probably on par with what I had. She was a little glassy eyed in the evenings, slept all day, and needed to get outside multiple times a day and also once in the middle of the night. She is feeling significantly better now.
However, we discovered that dogs can take small amounts of pepto bismol and believe it or not, Tasha hates the taste of it. So, we will be ordering some syringes because what happened next was that LD had her open her mouth and he poured it down. However, a LOT missed her mouth. As Tasha exits the bathroom, I discover that her cheek is pepto pink. Parts of her back are pepto pink and at least some portion of three of her paws is pepto pink. It was hard not to laugh when you saw her and of course, then you feel guilty because this poor pup is really not feeling well. Luckily for her, either Arccos took pity on her or likes the taste of pepto, because he tried to clean her up. Unfortunately, there was no cleaning that mess. We just had to wait for it to fade over the next two days.
I guess the moral of the story is: don’t let LD give the dogs any medication that isn’t in pill form. Next time, the elephant might be blue. Who knows?
