Peace of mind...

is priceless --- or if your a crazy dog mom $85 for a trip to doggie er at 9:30 pm.

So my little buddy found a plastic frisbee in the field and we played with for awhile. Soon after we come inside he starts to pant heavily, gag and this wierd hiccup like thing. I let it go for about 30 minutes and then started to get really worried. What if a piece of the frisbee broke off and was lodged in his throat?

Fortunately there is a 24 hour pet emergency clinic about 5 minutes from the off we go. By the time we get there he stopped panting and gagging and only did the hiccup thing a few times. We waited about 30 min to see the vet --- as usual Tanner made quick friends with everyone. The vet could feel something small, but nothing major and gave him a treat. She was so nice, I felt like an overreacting mommy...but I had visions of a pieces of plastic stuck in his throat and there was no way I would have been able to sleep. But once the all clear was given we had a peaceful, restful night.
