Some of you may remember me talking about my sick dog Sammy. I won't rehash the whole thing but the short story is that he's been sick since September. Still have no idea what his diagnosis is. Over 5k in medical bills. Over $300 in carpet cleaning. Where does it stop? I honestly don't know what to do??
Started with throw up. Now it's diarrhea. He hasn't had a solid stool since coming home from the ER hospital. (on Halloween). My nursery is ruined. My living room is ruined. My basement carpet is ruined. We had to rip up the carpet in the basement because he was sneaking down there and we didn't realize it. (that room is torn up because it's being renovated so we don't really go in there right now).
Full house steam cleaned on 10/06. Two rooms steam cleaned on 12/10. Two rooms steam cleaned on 12/21.
Earlier, I'm on the couch with DD. DS is playing at the table with playdough. I smell something. I investigate and he's pooped all over DS's bedroom floor! I am beyond ticked at this point. We have a carpet cleaner but it doesn't do the job like a professional and they just cleaned YESTERDAY!!!!
I cannot afford to rip up all our flooring and replace it. I'm already replacing carpet in the basement that we did not plan to replace! The worst part .. he's doing it when we are all up sitting around.. he never even begs to go out and we already let him out like a million times a day trying to avoid this!
I have no idea what to do. The vet said try immodium. He's been on 2 pills 2x daily for 3 days.. no change.
1. thought about kenneling.. but Sammy will honestly poop on himself in a kennel. He used to do that when he was kenneled.
2. Thought about those bed mats you can buy.. like the goodnites for kids.. but I would seriously have to cover my entire house!
3. thought about paint tarps but same thing.. I would literally have to cover my entire house.
