My rottie Omar had been throwing up, became very weak, unable to walk, breathing heavily and somewhat disoriented. I took him to the vet on Tuesday and my vet at first diagnosised him w/Upper Respitory Infection and mild case of worms.. Gave him 2 shots sent us home w/meds.. throughout the nite Omar was vomiting constantly.. took him back yesterday.. I told her that I notice "chunks" of blood in his vomit. She said she would do some test for poison.. This morning I found out that he had been poisoned w/ rat poison or mole poison and he has internal bleeding..
.. I adopt Omar, (3 yr old rottie)just 2 months ago. I had a rottie before him that I had for almost 4 years. His name was Bobo.. he had been abused as a pup and my friend ask me if I would take him in.. I did.. It was the best thing I could have ever done. My husband and I just moved into our home 3 years ago.. never had any major problems w/our dogs. They are fenced in and I also have pens that I put them in when they are eating.. cause my Doberman is quiet the pig.. BUT... BOBO died back in Oct..BROKE my heart.. and he too had been poisoned and I also had a Chow-chow pup to die.. Maverick.. he died on a friday nite and Bobo died on a SATURDAY NITE.. what I don't understand is why.. why poison an animal that has no way of bothering you or harming you in any way.. WELL, I would like for you all to be thinking of us.. my vet .. said she couldn't tell me if he(Omar) would be alright or not.. its too soon to tell .. I just don't think I could handle another loss..
.. But for my other animals.. My dobie and chocolate lab.. their fine.. its just been my rotties that have been targeted. How can people be so cruel?!
That is just outright cruel and uncalled for I'm so sorry to hear that. Have you thought about going to the authorities. I mean there are laws against animal cruelty and I would say that is very cruel to them, not only that but you have the test results from your vet so it's not like it's just your word.
Everyone thank you, but .. I'm sorry to say Omar passed away on Friday, Feb. 25, 2005 at 7:15 a.m. central time. My dogs have access to coming in or out of the house. The authoritieshave been contacted but.. they said without physical evidence (pics or video)of person(s) doing the crime, there was nothing that they could do at this time. So my husband and I are in the process of having security cameras installed. I am so disguised ,
, and hurt. These heartless low-lifes need to be behind a big set of iron doors. Hopefully this will never happen again, but if it does, I will have my proof and they will be there! THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE..
I'm also very sorry to hear that he passed I truly hope that whoever did this get's what they deserve. They oughta be poisoned or worse. ok maybe that's a little too strong but what the hell is their problem. I'm sorry I get really passionate about this subject, I mean it is hard enough to lose a beloved pet but to lose one because someone took them deliberately away is even worse. I truly feel your pain and sincerely hope they do catch whoever is doing this.
I am so sorry toread the sad news of Omar being poisioned and then you losoing him due to someone eles's bitterness or fear toward a certain breed......what this devilish persondoesn't realize, or care about, is that you have indeed lost a member of your family. A person's fear can turn ugly.....andthen their actions areunexcuseable. I amglad you are putting up cameras to catchwhomever is doing such anterrible act of feeding poision to yourrotties. Keep us posted....... Becky
