Default First E-Vet visit

Sierra was having her weekly play day at her former foster mom's house, and being "sisters in crime" with a hound pup that's been there a few months, they got into trouble. They found (on a high shelf of course) a bottle of Killex weed killer. Chewed it open. Ingested who knows how much of what was spilled on the deck.

I show up to pick up Sierra and am greeted at the door, saying they're just on the way out to the vet, she was leaving me a note to let me know where they were.

Both dogs are given stuff to make them vomit (3 times each, poor girlies) and half a bottle of activated charcoal each. We're supposed to watch for neurological symptoms, but the vet thinks it was caught soon enough and we should be okay.


Julia: Mom to Sierra (adorable mutt - Basset x Cattledog is our best guess these days) Buddy (noisy but awesome DSH tabby cat) and Carter (adorable human baby) RIP Nya 1994(?) - 2010

Oh no! How is she doing, is she showing any ill effects - well, other than the ickiness of induced vomiting and charcoal? Poor dear, give her a hug for me. I know how scary this is.
