Tootsie Update - Please Keep On Praying

Dear Hearts and Kindred Spirits,

Our sweet, sweet Tootsie is hanging in there. She's still with Special Vet Dr. Ward and she's getting the best care in the universe. There have been ups and downs, but she continues to wag, because she loves life.

She will pull through. She has to. She's a trooper.

It's going to take three days to flush half of the naproxen out of her system; we'll be at that point on Wednesday evening Pacific Time. We're hoping and praying there hasn't been any permanent damage to her GI tract and kidneys.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers, and please be sure to keep your medicines safely stored away, because one caplet is all it took to put Tootsie's life in danger.

This is a picture of Tootsie and Dr. Ward's furkid Bug from last year, when Tootsie lived at Dr. Ward's after her bladder surgery and before we adopted her.


Tootsie, we love you so much!

    Dear Tootsie and Her Family,
    Our Prayers and Love are with You. Stuff Happens and sometimes the little ones think they can eat anything that isn't in a bottle and sometimes it is the bottle that they think they can eat. We've been there and know that you feel guilty but you can't do that to yourself.
    You have done the best that you could for such a loved baby. Dr Ward has helped us with all of our pets and we know that she is the best.
    Keep us posted, we really appreciate it.

    Sadie and the other Mother.

  19. We still have our paws and fingers crossed. We can't believe that one caplet could do that much damage. The number of times SHE's dropped one and we've nearly got it!

    We know the little girl is in the best of hands. So we send our love and hugs to all of you.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    It is so great to see and feel everyone's love and hugs...she is a strong little dog and we have done and are doing everything we can. Sometimes bad things happen so that good things can happen. I believe this is one of those times-using Tootsies' blog to educate. These events get people thinking, talking, and reaching out to one another. Spread the word about medication hazards, and don't wait for symptoms to show up before you seek help-by then it may be too late to prevent the damage. You can call the ASPCA poison control number for help if you are not able to reach your veterinarian, but they do charge for their consultation services (888) 426-4435. You can also visit their website for assistance with other animal related issues at: www.aspca.org
