I ALMOST LOST DABU

ON 9/28 ,I RAN OUT OF FRONTLINE FOR ONE OF MY 14 MONTH OLD BOXER BOYS(DABU) AND HAD MY HUBBY RUN OUT TO GET A SUBSTITUTE SEEING AS THEY HAD SOME BABY TICKS ON THEM AND I AM 8 MONTHS PREGNANT.WE TREATED THE HOUSE,LINENS AND WASHED THE BOYS BEFORE THE THE DROPS.SHAMUS GOT THE LAST OF THE FRONTLINE AND POOR DABU GOT THE POISON (HARTZ FLEA AND TICK DROPS)BY THE NEXT MORNING,MY HUSBAND LEFT FOR HIS JOB OUT OF STATE AND I WAS WAS LEFT WITH ONE HAPPY LITTLE MAN AND ONE WHO WAS ON THE DECLINE.DABU ATE A FEW BITES OF FOOD AND THEN STARTED WITH THE RUNNY POOP.THEN CAME THE VOMITING,DROOLING AND HIDING UNDER MY BED.THEN NOT BEING ABLE TO STAND,I RAN TO THE EMERGENCY VET WHERE I SPENT FOME 7:30 UNTIL 3 AM WAITING TO SEE IF I WOULD BE LEFT WITH ONLY ONE LITTLE GUY.I WAS DEVASTATED WHEN I LEARNED IT WAS FROM THE DROPS WE PUT ON HIM.I WAS THE CAUSE OF THIS?MY POOR DABU WAS POKED AND PRODDED AND INJECTED (BY THE BEST…I MEAN MOST LOVING STAFF AT THE EMERGENCY VET CLINIC IN ORLANDO…)HE WAS BATHED TO GET THE REST OF THE INSECTICIDE OFF OF HIM ANFD SENT HOME WHERE IT TOOK ALMOST A WEEK TO GET MY LITTLE MONKEY BACK TO HIMSELF.A WEEK OF BOILED CHICKEN AND RICE,THOUSANDS OF EXTRA KISSES AND HUGS AND A MILLION TEARS.I LOST 2 LBS. OVER THIS…NOT GOOD WHEN YOU ARE PREGNANT.
I CALLED THE HARTTZ COMPANY TO REPORT THIS TO A VERY BLAND AND UNSYMPATHETIC…I MEAN PATHETIC MAN AND WAS TOLD TO PUT IT IN WRITING.SO I DID AND ASKED FOR NOT ONLY MY VET BILL BACK,BUT THE COST OF THE POISON AND RENTAL TO STAEM MY CARPETS AFTER ALL THE VOMITING.WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS….GET THIS CRAP OFF THE SHELVES!
BUT…A HUGE THANK YOU TO DR.DIETZ AND STAFF AT PRINCIPAL ROW IN ORLANDO….AS ALWAYS….THEY UNDERSTAND AND MAKE THE VISIT PERSONAL!
I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT DABU IS WELL AND SHAMUS IS HAPPY TO HAVE HIS BROTHER BACK!
AMIE
