ATTENTION ALL DOG OWNERS AND DOG LOVERS

DO NOT FEED YOUR DOG BUSY BONES!!!

See that adorable little fluff ball? His name was Gizmo, he was one of the happiest little pup pups that I have ever seen. He loved his family and every minute he cold spend with my mom.

One day, we gave him a busy bone as a treat. A few hours after eating it, he starting acting really odd. He wasn’t acting odd and barely reacted to anything. 

We didn’t really think anything of it because he was a pretty odd little pup and we thought he just he had to poop or something. So we went to bed and everything like normal.

The next day, he was even worse. He didn’t move at all, and threw up everything he tried to eat or drink. My mom called the vet and they said to just let it go for the night because he was probably just a little ill. 

Gizmo just kept getting worse and worse. He could barely life his head and laid around all day long. Finally, my mom brought him into the vet and she told them about what was going on and they decided to do an X-Ray on him.

After the results came in, they noticed a large blockage in Giz’s intestines. They called my mom so she could bring him in for emergency surgery. 

After surgery, the vet came out with a sample of what was blocking his intestines. As soon as my mom saw it, she knew exactly what it was. 

Busy Bone.

They said they extracted as much as they could, but it was hard because he was only about 10 pounds and surgery is hard on little dogs. We picked him up from the vet a few hours later so he could have a chance to wake up. When we picked him up, he was still under the anesthesia and not very responsive. We still brought him home because it was either that or leave him at the vet overnight alone.

When we got home, all of my other animals got next to the kennel to see what was wrong. 

They knew.

About an hour after getting home, Gizmo passed away at only 4 years old.

I then wrote a very angry letter to Purina (the owners of Busy Bone) telling them what happened. I heard back the next day, and we started our claim. 

They talked to Gizmo’s vet who told them is was definitely the Busy Bone that had caused his death. Purina paid us for the cost of the surgery just to shut us up and left us. 

I am telling you this story as a warning, I know that Busy Bones are a popular treat to give dogs, but I am begging you

Please do not feed your dogs Busy Bones. 

Gizmo’s life couldn’t be saved, but your dog still has a chance.

First, treats like these are worthless crap and shame on companies like Purina who claim to love dogs so much for even making them.

Second, these types of treats are pure junk food and can easily cause damage to the unsuspecting pet parent.

I’m so sad for Gizmo and his family.
These and any other treats such as rawhides, greenies, and other super chewy type foods are very bad and dangerous to feed to your dog.
Be careful!

Please help! I’m moving in a couple days and I an only keep one of my cats, this little girl right here needs a home.
Her name is Khaleesi (like GoT, yes) and she is the most loving cat ever. While she does have some sharp claws, she will never willingly use them on you on purpose, she just loves to cuddle. She adores wet-food and will be your best friend if you give her some! She is very sweet and was rescued from the streets six months ago. All of her time begging for food has left her with the inability to meow anymore, so the poor girl will be a quiet cat. Please please please! She really is a super sweet girl. She’s also litter-trained and doesn’t scratch up furniture. She gets along well with other cats, but I’m sure her living on the street at one point in her life may make her a little leery of dogs.Please share this with everyone you know, and if you live in or around Sedalia, MO and want an adorable cat we will drive her to you!
But even if you don’t want another cat please reblog because maybe someone will! We can’t afford gas to drive too far away from Sedalia, MO.
This little girl is my baby and it pains me to get rid of her, I just want to see her go to a good home. Please please help out by at least signal boosting,
