Besides coffee, coffee grounds and coffee beans, other sources of caffeine in your house include:

  • Tea
  • Pop
  • Energy Drinks
  • Weightlifter Supplements
  • OTC Pills (example NoDoz)
  • Diet Pills

Signs/Symptoms to watch for include:
  • Hyperactivity
  • Restlessness
  • Vomiting
  • Elevated Heart Rate
  • Hypertension
  • Abnormal Heart Rhythms

  • Collapse
  • Possible Death 
The best thing you can do if you dog or cat consumes anything from the list above is to immediately induce vomiting and immediately call your veterinarian.

New Toys

Happy National Dog Day to all my K9 pals!
I’m pretty sure everyday is dog day, right?!?!?

I would like to share with you my two new toys I got this past weekend. 

The first is a 4TB, yes you heard me correct 4TB, External Hard Drive! Now I will have no problem running out of storage room on my computer. When my dad took a look at my computer he was speechless with the amount of photos I had saved on it. He thought I needed the 4TB.

My other new toy is a Nikon D5100 DSLR camera! With this baby I have a feeling the external hard drive was a good investment.

If you have any tips or tricks you would like to share, please feel free! I just found out how to turn the camera on! BOL!
