What if you soak his dry food in warm water - lots of warm water - like equal parts food and water? If you let it soak for 10 minutes or do it will soften up the food.

Yes.... you could use chicken broth or something to soften it if he doesn't like warm water.... Let it get all mushy

Oh my! I'm just getting to check in and see what all has gone on today since seeing this this morning. I can't believe this has happened and glad he's doing better. That poor baby! I definitely agree with what everyone has said. Could you dab Benadryl or Mylanta or something on his tongue to help? I don't know for sure and ask your vet first...just trying to think of something to help ease his pain.

Holy Mackeral!! Poor Indy!!!! I am so sorry this has happened to him - I can only imagine how painful and uncomfortable he must be feeling.


.....and that this isn't the first time this has happned is unforgivable!


If the kennel doesn't pay all your bills and change their cleaning products, I'd report them to the media....that ought to get their attention...

You know, if they are not returning your calls or are not helping with this, Pat's suggestion is a good one. One of our major newspapers even has a column called The Problem Solver where you can have them make contacts on your behalf and the problem with resolution is reported in the paper/online. This usually gets people's attention!

Hope your baby is improving today. Sending hugs!

I'm just seeing this and am totally appalled that this place would have allowed this to happen to your baby!!!! I'd be livid as I'm sure you are!!! !
Glad to see he had eaten and seems a bit more comfortable...
As to food.... could you 'pulverize' his kibble via a food processor or even put into a baggie and 'smash up with a mallot/hammer?... Then add water or broth ( low fat/low sodium) I had to do that for my Missy .
Praying his tongue heals quickly!!!

My guess is that the little guy sustained the injury from innocently licking something off the floor that had previously been cleaned with bleach or other potentially caustic chemical. (As opposed to say, chewing on a rubber toy since the injury was only to the tongue & not the entire mouth.)

I'm always aware of what's on my floors because, just like human infants & toddlers, my boys will sniff & taste anything. With that in mind, I am curious as to what the rest of you use to clean your floors at home? If you must use a disinfectant, do you rinse well a time or two after cleaning?
