A quick and easy recipe for Fruity Ice-Cubes For Dogs.
Anyone who has been following my Social Media in the last few days will know that Storm hasn’t been been to well. Earlier in the week Storm sliced his paws open chasing the ducks. After a trip to the vet he came away with Anti-Inflammatory medicine, cream for his feet and new born baby socks.
The socks where instead of a cone of shame, he has had to wear his socks for the past 5 days to stop him licking at his pads. And yes he is as annoyed with his socks as he looks!
Storm did get used to his socks as time went on and his pads have started to heal really well. But on Saturday things took a turn for the worst.
I woke up to the sound of Storm retching, this is not the sound you want to hear at 8am on a Saturday morning.
Poor old Storm had been sick 5 times at what I can only imagine was the early hours of the morning. So straight away that put a stop to the show were were due to attend. Storm went on to be sick at least another 10 times.
I called the vet who could get us in at 5.15pm but after Storm couldn’t keep water down I called the vet again who saw him as an emergency case within 20 minutes of calling.
Poor Storm had an antibiotic injection for his temperature and another injection which was an anti-sickness.
We were advised by the vet that he would have go the rest of the day without food (Storm Loves food, this was hard) but she went on to tell us that on Sunday he could start eating boiled chicken or fish.
Luckily we have woken up this morning and Storm seems a lot better, he hasn’t been sick again but he hasn’t really drank very much.
This is when I remembered I had made him some Fruity Ice-Cubes for Dogs!
The Fruity Ice-Cubes for Dogs are something I made last week in the hot weather we had and Storm I’m thinks they are delicious. Plus they get some fluid into him without him having to drink out of his bowl.
