Bit of background info....
We have a neighbour who is a complete psychopath, she has tried to get us evicted, turned neighbours against us, bad mouthed us to OUR visitors.
Last year our dog who is a jack/staff and is very healthy started to go downhill.... Lethergy, depression, vomiting bile, coughing. We took her to the vets who ran loads of tests on organ failure, cancer etc and they all came back clear. He repeatedly asked us if she could have eaten anything. We said no, she never ran off and when taken for walks we watched her with eagle eyes. (She liked to poo right next to the younge family who were having a picnic).
My parents were worried and said to us that they would look after her for a week. My mom phoned to say theat in 48 hours she was better. By the end of the week she was her normal self. Within 24 hours of being home she was ill again.
She stopped eating and then stopped drinking. We took her to the vets who said yet again ''is there any chance she could have eaten anything as she is showing signs of poisoning''... When we mentioned our neighbour the vet looked at us and nodded his head. He booked her in to have her put down three days later. He said that was the longest he could give her as she was not eating or drinking. We sat up with her trying desperately to get her to eat or have some water. On the sunday night she took a small chunk of tuna out of my hand. Just by her eating that the vet was really happy. He told us to watch her in the garden as something was being thrown over.
We would only allow her to go out into the garden when one of us was out there and she was let out onto the front garden on a night so we could see her. She improved very quickly and went back to being her normal self..... Until Friday...........
She was very weak and lethargic and last night we were up with her all night... She was hacking/coughing and being very sick (bile).... She was soo weak this morning and very sleepy. She is still hacking but no where as severe as last night. She is still bringing up bile but very very small amounts. It poisoning again!!!!
She has had food and plenty of water today and is already improving. This has happened as we started letting her out and not monitoring her again. I am soo angry I want to go next door and smack the evil old witch with my broom!
I was outside last night watering my lavender plants and the neighbour was walking up her drive. She stopped dead in her tracks and stood staring at me. I held her gaze and then looked away. We had done everything to help this woman. Her husband is ill and Carrot and I would go round to make sure she was ok and Babysprout would give her plants. Carrot would even mow her front lawn. To repay us she poisons our dog!!!
Who in there right mind thinks it's ok to poison a dog????
