    Default Ruckus gave us quite a scare today...

    We are always so careful with the heat, especially when Ruckus gets excited. We took him to a fundraiser today. Of course he gets all excited and starts his ( what I consider) normal bully breathing. Within a few minutes ( and I mean a few) he was sounding like someone with asthma. Like a whistle. Thank God the bully rescue group was there. They helped us cool him and calm him and brought over the Vet who was there. I now know ( thanks to these awesome people) that his breathing this extreme is because of his soft palate. Guess who is going to a new vet!! Mine always said his palate was fine for a bully!! I just thank God he is ok!!! But I was a shaking hot mess !!

    Oh wow, good thing the rescue group was there. Would you be able to go to their vet or is the clinic too far from your place?

    So glad your baby's ok!

    I'm glad you posted this - you never realize how quickly they can succumb to heat until it happens! I'm glad everything is okay!

    So glad he is OK, keep lemon juice handy, it works wonders when they get hot and have difficulty breathing, it helps break up the thick saliva that gathers in the back of their throat when they are hot and breathing hard. Just squirt some in their mouth and it helps clear it out. We have done this to Buddy before when he played too hard with Missy one day. So glad you had help and it turned out OK.

    I'm so glad Ruckus is fine. That is scary but a reminder how sensitive our babies are to warm temps.
