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! Attachment 105595

Love this pic! He looks so happy, he looks like he's smiling, even though his poor little puppy tongue is hurt.

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!

THIS!! Your poor baby! Glad he's feeling good enough to eat a little bit now. It breaks my heart as well, who knows how long he was in pain before you came to take him home. It could have been a few hours or a few days. Too bad our pets can't talk.

Tiffany - I'm so sorry that poor Indie is suffering like this. I think there are a lot of nerve receptors on the tongue so it must have been so hard on him. I classically like really hot pizza that burns my mouth (idiot that I am but to me it's not pizza unless it's burning hot) and darn if it doesn't hurt like crazy. I'm glad he got to the vet and I know the pred will help with the inflammation and the antibiotics will help if there's infection so he should do well. Getting fluids under the skin is not big deal so if that's needed don't worry. So happy that he ate...apparently with gusto.
Sending lots of hugs and kisses to you both.

Oh, gosh ... look at those precious eyes!! He is so darn adorable! I am really surprised he can eat with the burns on his tongue ... the meds must be very powerful.

Oh dear so glad he is doing better. I would never have thought to look in the mouth. See we always learn something new here.

Thank y'all so much for all the responses and tips. I feel a lot less crazy reading y'all's comments!! It's been a bit of ****, and I can't even imagine how long my poor baby suffered before I picked him up. He is doing better tonight and even barked! (Wonderful sound after no barking or sounds in the last 24 hours) I still haven't spoken with the owner of the boarding place, but will let you know. I'm just so happy he's "eating" the wet/liquid diet from the vet!! Do y'all recommend any particular wet food for the days to come? He's apparently not going to be able to eat his normal hard food (we use solid gold) for the next few weeks.

If it were me, I would be careful about adding new foods right now. I think too many changes could cause loose BM's, etc.

It's wonderful to know he is feeling better today! And, happy to hear he is barking again .. LOL

I agree- but he can't eat his hard food, so I don't know what else to do. I'll definitely see if solid gold has a wet option though, very true.
