My husband said getting off sub was worse than getting off a huge heroin addiction. Since I got to witness the withdrawals for over a month, I'm sure he was telling the truth. The misery went on forever. What finally got him through it all was outpatient rehab and aftercare. Lots and lots of aftercare. In addition to all the stuff at rehab, he wen...

Oh Jane. I have tears running down my face reading this thread. I know it doesn't help, but I do know how you feel. Be very proud of yourself that you accompanied your Tasha on her journey to the rainbow bridge. Not everyone can stand to stay with their pets. I can't imagine not staying myself. You did everything you possibly could for Tasha a...

Honey, you didn't hurt him. I lost my dog to cancer in February and it was the same thing. Hemangiosarcoma caused her spleen to rupture and she bled to death. We found her early in the morning. She hid her symptoms because her instincts told her to so she didn't turn into prey. Even x-ray and labs the week before detected nothing. What Ghill...

Forgot to add, until you can get him to help and meds, make sure he's in a secure area where he can't stumble into something and hurt himself. Without meds, there really isn't anything else you can do. When it stops, he's going to be completely wiped out for several hours, meds or no meds.

He's seizing again. Do you have an emergency vet you can contact? If you call your regular vet, there should be an outgoing recording instructing you what to do in an emergency, and this qualifies. Please let us know what happens!

I lost one of our dogs on February 4th to undetected cancer - hemangiosarcoma. She'd just been kind of "off" so we had her to the vet twice in as many weeks before she died. Nothing showed up on her labs, and the vet tested her thoroughly. Nothing on x-ray either. She seized late in the night and was gone a few hours later when her spleen r...

I agree with Misfits. In a young puppy, this is far from normal and even dehydration can prove fatal. Err on the safe side and try to find an emergency vet. Hope to hear back from you with some good news!
Honey, it's time for you to start living life for yourself. The addicts we love are masters at manipulation and emotional blackmail, and your husband has that routine down pat. "If I don't have my family there's no reason to get clean." I call BS on that. He's got you living HIS life and HIS disease and that's a classic ...
Neither one of you is ready for a commitment like marriage. BOTH of you are sick and putting down the drugs is only the first step to recovery. Aftercare with something like AA, NA or private treatment is a necessity to make sure you stay clean. By focusing on how unfaithful your boyfriend is with other women, you ignore the elephant in the living room cal...

I admittedly am no expert on c-diff, but I do know the strains that infect dogs and cats typically do not infect humans and vice versa. Unless your dogs have been drinking out of the toilet, I doubt they are carrying the bacteria. If you want to know for certain, ask your vet to do a test for it. Is it possible the dogs are having accidents in the house be...
