Cool and breezy

 Soup for lunch with a small amount of baby nettle tops for extra benefits. Washing is blowing on the line. It was so cool I had to put a coat on.

Ruby didn’t finish all her breakfast for some reason, didn’t really want to eat what she managed. Her stomach and guts had that squirty squishy noise going on. So, for the first time, she has had slippery elm, half dose in a small spoon of yogurt. She woofed that down and has eaten a small bowl of her food for lunch. She seems more settled now.

I am checking her poo for worms just in case, as we still haven’t managed to worm her without her vomiting:( Mind you, I did read on an online vet page that proving she kept it down for a minimum of 3 hours, it would have had time to work. Time will tell.

  1. Our Betty sometimes (but not always) has stomach trouble after a worming tablet, too. Hope Ruby settles down without getting the runs....the neighbour's spaniel, a Sprocker, gets frequent gut problems and the runs, I wonder if it's a particular spaniel problem?

    1. I don’t know. None of my Springer granddogs have it but their Labrador can be funny.

  2. Poor Ruby, I do hope that your latest intervention does the trick. My friend's Cocker is susceptable to Pancreatitus and she is so very wary of what he 'picks up' and eats when out. They can be so quick!

    1. Thank you. She is similar today. Ate her breakfast fine, dinner half heartedly. We’ll keep an eye on her:(
