This morning, we successfully ambushed Tuffy in the back yard. Hubby picked her up, and I wrapped the towel around her neck and upper body, while he adjusted his grip on her wriggling body. I managed to prise her mouth open and squirted the ENTIRE dose into her mouth. This was a first!
Much to our dismay, Tuffy spent the next quarter of an hour doing her utmost to bring it all up again. She was clearly feeling thoroughly sick and miserable.
We’d planned to go for an early morning hike, but decided to postpone until we were sure that she was okay. When she finally responded to our attempts to distract her with the fluffy plastic mouse that she likes to play with, we knew that she was back to normal.
This evening, we repeated the same procedure. It wasn’t nearly as successful as this morning, with much of the dose going astray and necessitating a second attempt.
Man, it’s exhausting.
