I took my dog to the vet this morning after she apparently had a stroke and was paralyzed. That's not the funny part...actually, it's pretty sad overall. But, I was telling the vet about this little Chihuahau who was terrified of men when we took her in yet my hubby babied her and won her over by making her hamburgers and eggs for breakfast. The vet actually said, "Oh no...that's sure to cause a heart attack." I then told her how when we first got "Blackie" she had a bad yeast problem. We changed her diet by going grain-free and giving her grass-fed meat and proteins so she improved after we did that. How sad that a vet would think grains or dog foods with GMO Corn or Soy or Wheat are good for a dog. And yes, she had to be put down but it was very peaceful and quick. It was definitely time. She also had some mammary tumors and had been throwing up lately which I didn't realize was probably connected. And she was a very old girl who had a great life with us. Dogs used to live a lot longer before dog food was introduced. They used to live on meat scraps and bones and stews--at least the people I knew back then used to feed their dogs like that before "Tuffy's Dog Food" factory came to the area.
