The flu season starts and guess what?  Someone here gets the flu.  My son, Caleb, to be more precise about the individual.
My Catahoula mix is also not feeling very well.  She is plugged up so bad, I was amazed at the x-rays I saw today after I took her into a vet's office.  I had hoped whatever was going on would correct itself, but it wasn't.

I took my dog to the vet today because she has been sick for over a week and I had no clue.  The vet took x-rays and showed me: she is literally full of - well dog dung to put it nicely.  He administered 2 syringes of enemas up her behind and then instructed me to do the same plus give her mineral oil.
He was all over this idea of mixing it with dog food.
Well she isn't eating and I don't do drugs like that with dogs, anyway.
He said to give her 2 shots worth and that's exactly what I did.

This is the easiest and fastest way possible to get this stuff into their system.
Grab the snout.  Pull up and back so tha…
