My other reason for quitting and not to wait. My son had a boy my first grandson he sent me a link about off gassing of tobacco smoke on your clothes cars etc. And asked me that if I smoke don’t be wearing my coat and bring a fresh sweater to put on before holding my grandson. I read the link and realized he was right in asking me this . The last time I saw my new grandson and I was holding him he thought I was sick and I said not to worry it’s a flu from quitting smoking . The look on his face and his wife’s and the thankyou hugs I got its a drug addiction that gets into our friends and family from us is,that not enough reason. I will never expose anybody again. Read what we have been doing it makes me sick to my stomach.
I just adopted a dog from the Fort Worth Animal Care and Control center during the Clear the Shelters adoption campaign. It appears the dog must have been exposed at the shelter, because I brought her home on Sunday night, and by Friday night, one of my dogs at home lost interest in eating. By Saturday, she was very ill with sneezing, runny nose, difficulty breathing through the nose, lethargy, fever, and total lack of appetite. By the end of the weekend, all three dogs had symptoms, but not as severe as my smallest dog in the pack. The shelter dog does more coughing than the others, ending it vomiting clear mucous repeatedly. I noticed it’s mostly when her stomach is empty, so if I feed her a little something early in the morning when her coughing is the worst, she will cough but not vomit. They are all 3 sneezing. The smallest dog is clearly the most ill. I ordered a homeopathic remedy for nasal symptoms from Amazon and began administering it to all 3 dogs on Tuesday late morning. I’ve seen improvement in the shelter dog and my largest dog. My smallest dog (5 year old, 19-lb. labeagle), who was also a former shelter dog, is still pretty sick, but she has shown some improvement with the drops. She was far sicker than the others before we started the remedy, so I didn’t expect her improvement to be as significant as theirs. In any case, she became a bit more active…following us to other rooms, getting in my lap for loving, and following the other dogs outside to use the bathroom. She will only eat out of my hand, and only a very small amount. For at least one meal a day, she turns her head away completely and refuses to eat. I’ve been getting her different foods to eat to entice her…it seems the only thing to tempt her is chunks with gravy. Anyway, I’m also offering her a variety of treats to get some calories into her, but she mostly refuses those, too. Her eyes are running more than usual leaving tear tracks on her face, and she is sniffling constantly. It leaves her not well rested, and I feel bad for her. What else can I do, and should I be concerned about complication in this one dog? The shelter dog was already scheduled for her first vet exam next week, and the largest dog is only affected in a limited way. Those two dogs are eating well and very active. Any suggestions on what I can do for the little dog to make her more comfortable and/or shorten/lessen the severity of her symptoms?
