    Hulloo there

    Post by Gizmos_mummy on Sun Oct 25, 2009 10:44 am

    Hi I'm Beverley and I own a shih tzu called Gizmo or should I say he lets me and my fella live in his house lol! He is 18months old and my best friend, I have multiple sclerosis and cannot work so we are together 98% of the time. He is very small for a shih tzu and is perfect for me as I can carry him easily and he loves to sit on the sofa and watch TV with me. We keep his hair short because I think if you are not shoing them its the kindest thing his hair doesnt get in the way of his eyes and he can play easier. He is very spoilt and loved all too much. It will be great to meet other owners and learn more about the breed and how to take optimum care of him.

    I dont know what else to say so if you want to know anything just ask Bx

    Hi there, Gizmo is so handsome.
    Hope he is ok soon, Phoebe was like that once and it was because she has eaten something she shouldn't. Mouth drooling/watering is one of the symptoms for being poisoned, but it sounds like you arte keeping a close eye on him. Give him a kiss from the girls.

    We the emergency vert wanted us to go to them and it would cost £120 just to see him and treatment on top of that I mean who can afford that! So first thing in the morning Lee (my fella) will call the vet and get an appointment there good grief Im a dog owner not an oil baron!

    These things just happen but if the vet thinks he needs seeing then i really would Sad

    I understand the money side as my treatment for Ruby is going to cost in the region of £1900 but shes worth it, we just have to find the money some how Sad

    Gosh that's not too bad.. we have had tons of emergency vet visits, Fudge's last bill was £450 for stitches on Bank Holiday Monday.. is it worth the risk if he has been poisoned? Sad

    3 of ours were taken in within 20 mins a couple of weeks back due to poisoning and if they hadn't gone in that quickly and the body had started to digest the stomach contents then it could have been a whole lot worse Sad

    I had Alfie the out of hours vet some time back, he wouldn't walk on his back leg. Couldn't stand on it properly, kept flopping down. This was just after 8pm I noticed. We watched him close for a bit, and I wasn't willing to wait till the next day. We rang the vets and they said to bring him in. It cost us £75 for the consultation because it was before 11pm. Then he had painkiller injection, antibiotics, and anal glands done. He'd pulled a muscle in his leg which was really painful.
    Then he had to see his own vet the next day, another consultation fee if i remember rightly, his records updated, and more pain relief. So yeah, expensive, but we do know these things can happen when we buy our babies. I don't have insurance myself, and times are hard.
    But better safe than sorry.

    And poor Fluff and Mr Fluff.......£1900!!!!!!! Jebus!

    Hope Gizmo is feeling better Bev, please let us know how he gets on at the vets tomorrow.

    Thank you so much for your words of advice, they helped me to convince Lee to call the out of hours vet and we went to see her last night. Gizmo had licked a toad, or eaten a snail or insect and it had poisoned him, the vet gave him an injection and we came home. Gizmo slept well and is much better today though he is quieter than usual and sleeping a lot bless him.

    Well thankgod you went last night after all it might have been very bad to have left him till this morning

    I know out of hours is expensive but in emergency's there really is nothing else to do but bite the bullit and pay up.

    It is a lot less heartbreaking than loosing your beloved fur baby

    Pleased Gizmo is feeling better today.

    Thank you guys I have just finished passing on the hugs to him its a hard job but someone had to do it!

    I understand you totally daisydotes men always think of the money but if it had been just up to me we would have gone in the afternoon. I dont think I could cope without him and Im just so thankful to you guys. When I showed Lee your replies to me he said actually he is worth it and called them phew!
