Bad Treats

I never thought that I would ever say that a treat was bad but it has happened. On Friday Barbara gave me one of the duck breast strips that we got on our treat shopping trip. I ate it fast as I like to do but I guess it cracked into a sharp piece.

I felt pretty uncomfortable on Saturday and didn't eat my breakfast. When we went to freestyle practice I was lethargic (and I am never lethargic) and just lay at Barbara's feet. She was very concerned about me especially when I didn't want to do anything during our turn and wouldn't even eat a piece of cheese. Then I did a massive throw-up (don't worry, no pictures of that!) and up came a 1 1/2 inch long piece of the duck breast strip with a point. I felt much better after I got rid of that pointy thing in my stomach and I am back to normal now.

Barbara was so upset that she sent an email to the manufacturer. If your people get you that kind of treat - Don't Eat It.

hmmmm, my mama recently bought us some duck breast "jerky" type treats and we love them. but they are super soft and chewy; no rough or sharp edges. she'll be watching though!

That sounds horrible. There are a lot of treats the vet says break apart like that & can be dangerous.

Thanks for the warning about the bad treat. At least you barfed it up and it stopped poking your stomach before it poked a hole! Glad you are ok now.

Oh my...Luckily it didn't puncture your stomach or anything coz it was sharp. We do get to eat those kind of hard meaty treats but my mommy makes sure she breaks them up to small pieces first & she makes sure they are not sharp becoz Chloe & I don't chew.I'm glad you're feeling better Niamh!
