So as many of you know, I was in a bad place a few weeks ago, and all you positive thoughts made me feel like me again!! Puglet's mom (hi Ms. Amanda) was just like my mom, and they used to work in animal hospitals. So when the vet told mom I'd tested positive for (get this) "Clostridium Perfringens" ( I know word-ee huh?!?) she was surprised she had never heard of that. She was told (by the fill-in vet she doesn't like....long story....if you want to know I can blog about it another time) that everyone, including humans, have this bacteria just hanging out in them already. It just watches TV, goes on the computer , takes a nap (no wait...that's dad) um err....well what I mean is that this bacteria is just kinda there not doing any harm. That is until something upsets the natural balance.
So since mom doesn't trust this fill-in vet (she's Italian and no she won't get over it dad), she had to google it. Basically, I ate something (dang never full tummy) and it messed with that balance and the end result was (literally) a liquid diet (and I don't mean slim fast)
If this was left untreated (ie no very expensive vet bill), one little pug can get dehydrated and eventually (gulp) pass to the rainbow bridge. Since mom hates rainbows (really people there is no gold) and has decided she likes me and plans to keep me around a while longer (despite that little furniture chewing incident-ohhh...that's a blog for a later date), she made sure I stayed hydrated (mmm...Smart Water) and dad cooked me a chicken bonanza.
So in the wise words of mom...."Stop eating sh*&%! off the ground Bellatrix!!". I will leave you all with that thought.
P.S. I totally ate a stick today...shh don't tell mom
