Disaster struck the Weeb Ranch last night around 11:00PM when Donna got home from the restaurant. She discovered that somehow after Adam & I were in bed. Sadie & Rigg’s got a packet of D-Con out from under the cook station and then tore it apart in the hallway. It is impossible to know how much each consumed, but Donna was on the 24 hour emergency line to the Vet and he said to bring them both in at 09:30AM that they should be okay until then.
Neither one showed any sign of distress or poisoning, but the Vet said it takes awhile for this stuff to start to work and makes them bleed internally.
Donna cleaned up the mess where they had spilled it and the box tatters real good since this poison depends on a sweetener to get the intended victims (rodents) to eat them.
My son Andy and I took the two of them to the Vet and she weighed them, Rigg’s 107lbs, Sadie 8lbs.then got a blood sample from both of them and said she was supplying a prescription. for vitamin K tablets, 25 mg for Sadie and 50mg for Rigg’s and that they will be given another test in 21 days. The prognosis is good for the both of them and the Vet said the secret is getting them in within 24 hours and starting them on the medicine right away.
As you might know there were some scary moments until the vets appointment, since both of these pals of ours are special. Soon as we got home the partners in crime got their pills and were told they were on super strict double probation and that anything that gets near their mouths will be watched. Since the bill for the two of them was $250 I can not stand any more excitement like that for awhile.
Adam is out playing, it went from 22 degrees this morning at 06:00AM to 45 degrees at 11:00AM so he called his buddies and they are meeting up now for some outdoor play. I certainly prefer this to sitting in front of the xbox, they can do that when it gets really cold in another few weeks.
Well I think I will put this aside for today and hope everyone has a good weekend. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna….
