Don't know if this even posted in the correct category but my head is all over the place.  crybaby

Lulu is one of Maisie's puppies and is 5 months old.  She is intensive care and fighting for her life.  sad

She belongs to my niece and collapsed this morning on the floor.  She was rushed to the Vets where she was given x-rays, blood tests, Valium and put on a drip.  It was discovered that a biscuit had lodged in throat and was causing her breathing probs.  I could not understand how one piece of puppy kibble could have caused that until the next phone call.

Her blood results came back and there was a high salt content in her blood which caused swelling to her brain.  Now the jigsaw fits.  She's had an allergic reactin to PEANUTS.  Yes - you heard all right.  She had got into her hu-sisters bag and stolen the peanuts.  Even although they were taken from her she still had a taste of the salt and a lick at the nuts.  Anaphalactic shock which would cause her oesophogus to swell.

Her sight has come back = yes she lost that too.  She cannot stand up.  Some stimulus has worked in that they can pinch her toes and there is a slight reaction.  She is on more medication and we will know more in the morning although the Vet does not hold out much hope. They think she is severely brain damaged.

I have cried all day and still srying as I write this.  Let this be a lesson - and watch your fluffs with eagle eyes.  Plerase help us bring this little girl hme, who just loves life and who always embraced it to the full.

This is terrible new, Liz.  I've heard they can be allergic to peanuts, chocolate and grapes before but never knew how severe the reaction would be.  You are right, we need to watch them very closely.  Healing prayers to Lulu and to comfort the family that loves her.  Please keep us up to date.  Kay

OH my  Crying I am so very sorry to hear this Lizzie.  cry1 I have never heard of a canine reacting so, going into anaphalactic shock from a peanut allergy, I've only heard of it in humans. Nobody could have known or understood until it was too late. What a horrible shame for all of you, my heart goes out to you.

Oh, Liz. How very sad. Such a tiny little fluff, but loved so much in that short time. Hugs to you and your neice and family. I understand how very precious each and every one of your little puppies are to you - it shows in every one of your posts. Like many others here I'm sure, I had no idea that nut allergies could affect our little fluffers. Please know that you are all in my thoughts tonight.

Livin the life of Riley


« Reply #12 on: January 27, 2013, 11:46:14 PM »

I just popped in and found this and am lost for words.  Such a tragic accident and so very unfair and so easy to happen to any of us.  I just picked Riley up on to my knee and he grabbed some bread off my plate and scoffed it before I had a chance to see what he was doing.. it can happen that quick.  So sorry for you and your families loss Liz.

This is awful and so unexpected! I am thinking that it is often suggested that we hide pills in peanut butter.
My heart goes out to you Lizzie!  comfort
