Default No means no..

Jaxx knows not to beg and knows he is not allowed to have people food. Unfortunately my father in law did not take us serious when we said not to give Jaxx people food.

Hubby and I went out for a while yesterday and came home to a very sick little Jaxx. I asked if he had anything to eat while we were gone. Hubby's dad said no not really just some of his pepperoni rolls and cinnamon rolls that he was eating.

Jaxx's diarrhea is still there but seems to have gotten better a little bit. He hasn't vomited since yesterday but he is definitely not himself. His belly has finally stopped making gurgling sounds and he is not moaning anymore when you touch him so hopefully he feels better soon.

We are going to try some eggs in a little bit and see if he will eat them.

I gave him a little bit of pepto last night because it was all we had and there wasn't any stores open to get any pumpkin.

I can't imagine how bad his stomach must feel after eating pepperoni and cinnamon.

Is there anything else I should be doing for him? I called the vet this morning and his opinion was to just give it time.

Hubby's dads opinion was that he was spoiling Jaxx by letting him have some of what he was eating. He said that is what grandparents are for...I wish he had spoiled him though by giving him treats instead of what he was eating.

I know it is frustrating (especially if you are at all concerned about his potty habits) but dogs eat worse things all the time. Hopefully he didn't get TOO much, and I hope he feels better soon. The good news is that the more he eats things he isn't used to - even when you'd rather he didn't - the more tolerant his tummy becomes over time!

Make sure that hubby's dad knows, though, that some food besides chocolate can be dangerous for dogs. Especially little ones. Even foods he might not think of, like raisins.

Toby has a very sensitive tummy, and my grandma just doesn't get it. The fact of the matter is that family should respect your wishes and NOT do anything that you don't want them to do when it comes to your dog. I had the same problem, and I had to sit her down and explain that Toby has a sensitive tummy and giving him food was NOT spoiling him, but actually hurting him, since it causes him pain and tummy ache. Once she realized it, and understood, everything was fine.

I hope Jaxx is feeling better now. I massage my dog's tummy when it gets full of gas. She seems to like it, as she doesn't try to run away when I do it. I kneed her tummy and get the gas moving!

Jaxx's belly is the same way we have to be careful what food he gets. I agree that people should respect our wishes. He knew Jaxx got sick because of it and kind of apologized this morning. I told him if he wants to give Jaxx something special just to ask for a treat or there is always carrots in the freezer for Jaxx.
His tummy is still upset he just had diarrhea in our living room which is so unlike him

Bad Father in law.. My Mom did that to a dog we had when my children were growing up, he was a mutt, had Chi and don't know what else. She fed him chocolate chip cookies , she was eating. I asked her to stop, but she fed him more, with in 1 hour he had hives all over his body and his eyes were even swollen shut. She would not except the fact the the cookies with chocolate did it. I was Christmas day, that goodness I had Benedryal on hand.

....and of course the dog won't say no to a special handout. My little neice accidentally dropped a blob of macaroni and cheese on the floor. Before I could even stand up Prince had cleaned up that dropping! If was quite a large blob given Prince is 3.5 pounds. Luckily he didn't get sick and the rest of the night didn't bring any more people food handouts (accidental or otherwise). I found my relatives to be very good about no people food after I explained that the pups are so small even a little people food could be bad for them. Sorry about Jaxx, hopefully he is on the mend!

Oooh these things make me so angry. No one's done it with my pups yet, but they have my children. My mother in law would sneak my 6 month old baby daughter french fries under the table with me right there, right after I told her "no". My daughter is autistic, and with that comes a severe milk allergy, and everyone still tries to feed her ice cream.
I feel for you, mama! I'm sorry you and your poor baby had to experience that!
