In real life, Rita's cousin Reggie recently had to visit the vet a few times. At first my sis and her hubs thought he was eating his own hair. He'd thrown up a hair ball, and then tried to throw up a few times at night, so off to the vet he went, where he had to endure the mischief of being prescribed some cat medicine! (Oh, the indignity...) (Did you know dogs can get hairballs, just like cats do? Especially long-haired dogs? I had no idea!)
No self-respecting dog wants to take medicine with a cat on the box!
When the medicine didn't help and he was still throwing up - or trying to - for several nights, back to the vet he went. This time the vet said they better do an X-ray. Which showed he'd eaten a rock.
So then it was off to the emergency vet for an endoscopy that removed this bad boy:
That's some silly mischief, Reg!
In a final act of mischief, poor Reg has been sporting this Poodle-esque cut, which both his little legs shaved, giving him sort of a pom-pom feet look!
|Look at those SKINNY legs!|
Eating rocks can be a serious problem! Hopefully Reg hasn't developed a taste for them.
