    I find that a piece of lunch meat works very well for getting Josie to take a pill

    How's Murray this morning?

    By the way, was it Giardia by any chance? If so, you have to really clean up the yard. I think you have to use a bleach and water solution and spray the yard down.

    Just for future reference, bread is kind of easy for dogs to choke on and it might make his stomach even more fucked up. I'm glad he's doing better, though.

    I have cats rather than dogs but I find hiding a pill in a blob of mayo or a piece of cheese usually does the trick. They love both so much that they just demolish it without thinking, and the pill goes down with it.

    If it's something like Giardia, they can see it right away...they are these nasty things that you can sometimes see right away in a stool sample. People can actually get this.

    Yeah, they did the samples that night. Apparently, they stuck several really big swabs up his butt to get the samples. They made an emergency appointment before the vet closed, so that's probably one of the reasons why they got the results so quick. He's been doing better the past couple days, and has been getting his pills when he's supposed to. No accidents.

    is there any way you can make sure he won't get sick from his environment again? like someone else said, is there a way you can make sure he won't get into stuff that will make him sick?

    glad to hear he's doing better!!

    I don't know. I think the only real way of making sure he doesn't eat any #2 is to put him on a lease, and just walk him ourselves. Not saying we wouldn't do it, but it's just easier, and safer, to let him roam in the back, and do his business. I suppose I could always watch him from the deck, too.

    I've gotta give Murr his pill, pretty soon. He's snoozing on my floor. I think he drools in his sleep. :3

    I'm so glad he's ok now. I was worried about him. I read somewhere awhile ago that dogs eat their poop when they're lacking in vitamins and nutrients. Perhaps you could consider changing his dog food to see if he'll stop eating his poopies. Hopefully your mom won't be a bitch about trying it.

    Or, here's an idea--you could go out in the yard and clean up all the dog crap so he doesn't eat it.
