I can't believe they said that. OMG. Hope your conversation goes well. Most of all I hope little Indy isn't in a lot of pain.

try using a syringe with water if he won't drink. Hold his head gently and hold the syringe at the side of his mouth.

OMG I can't believe that... Poor Indy!!!! I am so grateful I have family/friends in the area, because this is exactly what I would be afraid of Don't shelters/boarding places use pet safe cleaners....?? That just seems like a given... Anyways, I hope Indy has a speedy recovery and that his poor little tongue isn't in pain

OMG, just reading this now. It's bad enough that his tongue was burned and just lucky he wasn't poisoned too. How could they be so careless knowing it has happened before. Poor little guy.

Oh I am just horrified by this! DO NOT let them tell you it didn't happen there, that it must have happened after you picked him up. You must be so sad for your little baby!

Oh gosh I am just stunned by this! What a horrible experience for you and Indy! I cannot believe someone was so careless as to have something caustic anywhere near where animals would be in contact with it.

I too agree that your poor pup needs something for pain-- I've burnt my tongue before and it is PAINFUL. There are medication options available that should work, so ask your vet to give you something. You don't want him to suffer anymore than necessary.

The vet believes it was likely the disinfectant the boarder used to clean the kennel. I have not been able to reach the boarder yet, but am about to call again and discuss this with them...just thankful right now that he's alive and organs are functioning fine...
Poor Indy.... I'm sad thinking about how long he may have been in pain with a burnt tongue at the boarders

Here you are trusting them with your love and they are careless. Especially since it happened before!

I'd be calling a news station and telling them about it.... This is a big time of year when people board their pets. This place should be stopped.

And write a review on Yelp.

I'd tell the boarding place they need to pay for his vet bills!

It is heartbreaking! And yes, I'm going to tell them to pay his bills. It's ridiculous. I just ran home to check on him and the prednisone shot and pain meds (when I called vet to check about pain meds they told me he was already given some) apparently set in because he was a little more lively. Still refusing to drink water and not happy, but when I opened the wet dog food from the vet he perked up. He loved the first bowl so much I had to give him a little more- with a good bit of added water mixed in! - and he ate it all! I had to attach the below picture of his food face because it just killed me to turn around and see his face, especially after the last 24 hours!
