Visited the vets today (WED). Benji is not himself and is on the ‘scrounge’ for food constantly. Whilst out walking he picks up anything and unfortunately here in my town there are many folks discarding their take-away foods. Ideal for hungry dogs. Benji had ‘corn-on-the-cob’ and ended up with a belly ache. Today he went into my handbag and consumed a Cadburys Cream Egg. Benji also reached up to my bag with the plastic rubbish in, scattered on the floor and wrecked the kitchen – knocking over the chair, dragging out the dog bin from under the table.
Well it turns out that the injection he had last week was a Steroid and as he’s been on the tablets every other day until that visit (when told to stop them) he has had an over dose of them causing Benji to behave in this way. The area where his wart is – still not healed so now he has a collar.
I have decided to get a cage for him. When taking for his walk to wear a nozzle. Its hard work and upsetting to see my little boy like this and hope he will soon get back to himself. At least he still looks to me for comfort.
Will keep you updated on Benji’s progress.
