Desert Pup's Mom here. Just wanted to let all of the Pup's good friends out there know that Toby is very sick. It seemed to happen suddenly. His right eye is swollen and he has swelling on the right side of his face and down his jaw and he is unable to open his mouth without extreme pain. I spoke with the Doggie Doctor tonight and she had me give him a Benadryl for the swelling and a Rimadyl for the pain. Tomorrow I am going to take him to the Doggie Hospital. I don't know what is wrong with him and if any of you pups out there have heard of a similar ailment please let me know. Please cross your paws and say your puppy prayers for him. Thank you very much.

pee-ess: hopefully the Doggie Doctor will fix him up in time for Gucci's party. It just wouldn't be the same without Toby. And the Pup's are still gonna try to pick all of the pups up in the jet that needed a ride to the party.

Hi everypup,

Sorry to hear Toby is not well, I am sending healing rottie vibes and slobbers and crossing all paws that he makes a speedy recovery.

Mum says my bridge brother had simialr symptoms twice (both for different reasons) First time he had an abcess under his back tooth and the second time he had tried eating a Bee and it had stung him on his gum.

We are keeping you very much in our thoughts and prayers Toby, Get Well Soon!!

love, licks and tailwags.. and rotti smooochies for your worried Momma,

Oh no! Maybe it could be a tooth infection? Hopefully that's all it is. Maybe he'll just have to have a tooth pulled. We'll say prayers for Toby.

Infected/Impacted tooth? Bug bite of some sort? Allergic reaction to a substance? Sending out Pei Kisses to make you feel better!

OH NOES!!!!!!! We have our paws folded in prayer. Besides the things already mentioned, foreign object in jaw/gumline. Bite or tooth/jaw related have been mentioned. My only other thought is not a good one and I will not speak it til you have been to Doc and he says NO to it.
Feel Better!!!! Do not worry about flight. That can wait til Toby is A-ok.
Healing Vibes and pawsitive thoughts!!

wblmom said...

That's awful, I hope Toby is doing better today and the doctor is able to give him some good doggie pills!!

Fred said...

Get well soon, Toby!

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Poor Toby. Know that he is in our thoughts and that we are sending healing energy his way. We hope he gets well sooner that soon.

My dog friend, Zoe, here in Albuquerque has a similar eye/muzzle swelling incident a year ago and it turned out to be a reaction to a spider bite. Maybe? The tooth infection thought is a good possibility too. Don't worry...everything will be fine.

Rambo said...

Oh no Toby my bud!!! I am so upset about this news. What did you do dog?? Did something attack you in your sleep? Me and the little Midget are keeping our chihuahua paws crossed for you and yes, we will say some doggy prayers. Get better soon, we have a party to go to.

Deefor said...

Paws crossed over here. And we'll say a prayer to the doggie star on our late walkie. I hope Toby is better really soon.


Agatha and Archie said...

The Devil Dog said...

Toby, did you get bit by something? You are making me very worried. Please get better soon. I do not like it when my friends are sick.


chasingsquirrelswithrusty said...

I am keeping my paws crossed for you and we are praying. We hope the hospital can tell right away what is wrong.

Mom wants to know if he could have been bitten by a snake. She had a cat that was bitten by a snake once and the whole side of its face was puffed up. It was fine but it took awhile.


Raising Addie said...

I hope you are feeling better this evening Toby!

I know they are taking super good care of you and will do everything they can to help you.

Take care Toby!

Moco said...

We will be doing a special edition of the circle of healing vibes for Toby. He must get well.
I would love to get on that airplane and fly to the party.
