What to do if your dog eats grapes

A lot of people don’t realize that grapes (and raisins) are very toxic to dogs.

This video by Doctor T Shows how to use Hydrogen Peroxide to get your dog to bring up the contents of their stomach. Yes, we know that sounds nasty but many breeds of dogs can go into acute kidney failure almost immediately after consuming grapes. There is no time to take your pooch to the vet in many cases! Help spread the word as it’s been our experience that many people aren’t aware of the issue.

Many dogs will spit out grapes if they get one, but many other will eat just about anything as you know and get into real trouble. Let’s keep our furry friends safe!

Family dog saves child’s life stranded in the wilderness

Victoria Bensch, three years old at the time wandered off into the wilderness one frigid February evening and got lost. Blue, the family’s Queensland Heeler stayed with Victoria throughout the night where the temperature dropped to below freezing.

When her parents realized Victoria was missing and sounded the alarm and authorities begin what turned out to be a lengthy, 15 hour search for the young girl. The sheriff’s office was quoted as saying of the incident, “The dog kept her alert, warm and gave her companionship throughout a very cold night.”

Victoria suffered some minor frostbite and had a few scrapes and scratches but otherwise was fine. Her furry friend came through the night unscathed. Three cheers for this heroic pooch who will have a best friend all throughout his hopefully long and blessed life.
