thank heaven s for some cut and paste

I'm overdue for an update regarding awesome Wicked! We survived our first two semesters of graduate school, with top-notch grades, thanks to Wicked supervision and support through classes and papers. unfortunately, Wicked didn't decide she could go potty on campus until the end of the semester, and the poor girl ended up with a UTI. First vet trip! She was great of course, and we figured out some favorite treats to get the medicine into her. Wrapping the pills in sliced ham did the trick. Of course, we were going full speed for awhile, and the second I was out of school I got sick. Wicked stayed close through all my coughs and sneezes (who says you can't get a cold in August??). Feeling better, and decided to take a trip to the local ice cream place, located on a dairy farm. Wicked thought the chickens were pretty entertaining, but was very confused about spotted animals bigger than her! 
We have another week and a half off, and then we start our internship. More excitement ahead for this team! 
Thinking of SDP often, your very happy team,
Bethany and Wicked.

  1. Please don't feed dogs ham!! Most vets will tell you that around ham popular holidays they see a dramatic increase in emergency visits.

    Ham and other fatty meats are high in fat, which can lead to a life-threatening pancreatitis - quickly! In addition to being high in fat, these foods are very salty and can cause serious stomach upset if eaten by your cats or dogs. Furthermore, large breeds of dogs that eat salty food may drink too much water and develop a potentially fatal condition called bloat. The stomach fills up with gas and within several hours may twist on itself which can be fatal.
