Last week I gave Layla (3 months old this Sunday) several dog biscuits. My
wife had also given her several. The same day, I gave her a pig ear to chew
on. Later that day she developed diarrhea. I kept an eye on her and the next
day she continued to have very bad diarrhea with a little *** in it and
she also vomited twice. I immediately called the vet and took her in. She
ate normally, drank normally, but had terrible diarrhea AND vomiting.
My vet said that she had a large amount of bacteria in her system that she
could have gotten from the pig ear. She was given a shot to calm her tummy,
and pepto bismal-like puppy medicine and an antibiotic. She is back to her
normal self but I will not give her any more pig ears for treats! Maybe
when she is a bit older.
What a great puppy she is!
