A few good things to thank God for
September 18, 2016 10:08am CST
So 2 days now Coco has had no seizures. We have tried to think of and cover everything we can about her health. Daughter said perhaps the dog food got contaminated some how , so I got rid of that for now. This is the same dog food she has eaten for years, so its not the brand or anything. maybe just this bag. Have been feeding her chicken breast and rice. Hard to keep her filled up though cause this dog is a food pig. which is another thing I have to constantly watch. she will lick and eat things from the floor. When the baby is eating, I have to keep her in my room as if she is out, she/Coco will gobble up anything thrown down and for some reason, they just put food directly on the high chair tray and let her finger feed herself. I always held them as I ate and fed them and taught them with a spoon etc. and when they was in the high chair , it was right by me so I could teach and direct where most the food went. Its like they just dab a bunch of food on the tray and let her have at it most of it ends up on the floor and it is not all finger food. I still have no access to money, but thank God the bank has covered the overdraw and have put the little money I had back in there. I can't get to the bank till Monday and have to apply for a new card then. Means I have to change all my automatic pays at a few places and change my card number everywhere I have it on file. I deleted all my info from pogo, which the bank lady advised . so that helped. Chase is a great bank. never had so much help before. any good news on your end to report?

I wonder if your dog licked something that was toxic and that is what caused the seizures. That is scary. I so agree on the baby eating thing. I did the same with mine. My grandmother was big on teaching little ones how to hold their silverware correctly too.

@bunnybon7 Some people think that they are being "good" to a dog if they give them garbage. I saw once someone who let a dog lick the grease off a griddle after a barbecue. The dog was very happy, but later on he was vomiting all around.

I agree. Chase is a good bank. I've had them for a couple years now. I'm glad they worked with you. I hope that solved the problem with Coco. I didn't feed my kids that way either. I taught them the right way as well.

exactly and when I mentioned something about it my daughter shushed me and said, its their first you know. still learning. well my first was never fed such a way. I was at least teaching him how to eat. this one is over a year old. surely I said they have been around other babies to see how its done or read something? lol

So relieved Coco has been seizure-free for a few days. Also, good to know Chase is a reliable bank. Well, the lawn guy came to kill the grubs that were killing our lawn, so that is good news. Would cost a fortune to replace an entire lawn.

@bunnybon7 Is she doing better? Did you find out what was wrong? There is a lot of human food that dogs can't eat and she might have picked something up off the floor. I think it's a good idea to keep her in your room while the baby is eating.

About Coco: Be aware (just in case you have not read this) that some foods have xylitol or aspartame and might not be listed. Xylitol can kill our pets, while aspartame can make them ill from one I have read.

I'm glad you got your banking fixed up. My bank, WF, is a great bank for me also. I think Coco needs vet care. Guessing this or that could be a bad thing. I have to have seizure medics, animals have to take seizure meds too sometimes. I feel that our fur babies are as needy as our human babies.

one vet said bring her in she may need seizure meds, but it is a new thing so don't much trust it for dogs. plus she has stopped now for nearly a week and i can't seem to get daughter to take time for that also the vet. just hope it has all blown over since usually the vet has to do a lot of guessing also.
