    Another sorry tale, from the south coast. Our beautiful 5 year old Labrador, Bonnie, has been poisoned. Perhaps more distressing, she was being looked after by my brother in law, we think she ate some poison in the local forest whilst on a walk with him.
    Our first signs that something was amiss, we collected her, and she was off her food, and all she wanted to do was sleep. The next morning, she was very ill, and had vomited during the night. She was immediately dispatched to our regular vet, and put on intravenous fluids and a cocktail of anti-toxins.
    The next morning, she appeared to be recovering, so she was returned to our care. Sadly, during my lunch break, she suffered a massive stroke, and I discovered her an hour later, unable to stand or control her head movements.
    She is now in the expert care of Fitzpatricks referrals in Godalming (The Supervet, if you watch channel 5). She is making slow progress, but still remains extremely poorly. The neurosurgeon in charge of her care is optimistic that she will make a complete recovery, and we are hoping she is right.
    Just be warned people, there are some utter b*****ds out there who don't care which animal gets harmed. I'd love to find out who did it, and get them to explain to my 6 year old why her best friend is in at the vets, and may not come home ever again!

    Such terrible news, and I know that personally I would be completely gutted if that happened to our dog. Got everything crossed for her to make a full recovery. :cry::cry:

    That's so sad, hopefully she recovers.
    Landowners/Farmers often lay poison and its indiscrimate what it controls. Very common practice here. I have never laid it but have been approached by local farmers asking if they can lay it on my land.... I refuse point blank. This time of year is peak time for its use as its lambing season.
    Keep us updated with her progress and thoughts with you.

    Im so sorry to hear about Bonnie.
    I was shocked to see a sign, sellotaped to the entrance to a local beach, claiming a dog had been poisoned on the beach here recently.
    This went on all the time in Cyprus and was the reason I left.

    I hope Bonnie recovers.

    Terrible news. What I would do to someone who did this to my dog can't be put into words! I really hope Bonnie pulls through, she is in the best place and fingers, and everything else, are crossed for you all.

    Sorry to hear about your dog , I had a labrador that would eat anything that remotely resembles food , I had a small farm at the time and in the feed barn a rodent problem , all of the baited traps were covered and dog proof to lay down poison without precautions is a totally irresponsible act . My wife and I are ardent watchers of super vet , the guy is amaizing

    I am so sorry to hear about your dog, Bonnie.....it sounds as though she is in the best place and getting the best possible care.

    Are they sure that the poisoning is deliberate? Just with you mentioning she had been in woodland - there have been problems in certain areas of the country, ours included, where dogs have become very, very ill.......
