    DON\'T FEED YOUR PETS ROTISSERI CHICKEN!!

    IT COULD KILL THEM!!

    On Father's Day, we lost our champion terrier. He was a kick @ss little guy, smarter 'n hell. He was my wife's baby. We found him laying on the floor barely alive and rushed him to the emergency animal hospital. I know some people think that's nuts, but the dog was worth right around $3K and he was a huge part of our family. He was only 3 1/2 years old and he had no defects or health problems. We couldn't figure out what happened. The Emer. Vet kept saying it looked like he got ahold of "recreational drugs". I finally had to tell the guy "look f*cker! We don't take drugs! That's not it!" Look for something else!!/forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    The vet couldn't figure it out and our dog died about 10:00 a.m. on Father's Day. We got the results from the necropsy (animal autopsy) back last night. There was a bacteria on the rotisseri chicken that killed him. It caused him to go into acute cardiac arrest (heart attack) and they couldn't save him because his body was too full of toxins. We had only given him a piece of the chicken small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. He was dead less than 2 days later. He was acting normal and didn't show us any signs of problems.

    We lost a member of our family and my wife is a wreck. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif All becuase we "rewarded" him with a piece of rotisseri chicken /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Apparently those things harbor mega amounts of bad bacteria and germs that will kill animals in a heartbeat....literally /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif Take it from someone who had to learn the VERY hard way...DON'T FEED ROTISSERI CHICKEN TO YOUR PETS!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Re: DON\'T FEED YOUR PETS ROTISSERI CHICKEN!!

    that just plain sucks...ever wonder why grocery stores sell roasted chicken? It gives them a way to "liquidate" aged raw chicken just before expiration or at expiration. Cooking it allows them to sell it fast.

    Where did you buy this at? Did you cook it yourself or at the local market?

    I feel for your family, i have lost a dog before unexpectedly and its a gut wrenching feeling.

    Yeah, the huge "WELL DUH /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif" moment came too late on this one though.

    We got it at the local Winco. We had it in the refrigerator for a day before Rocky got any.

    Gut wrenching is an understatement for my wife. She took such an interest in our dogs that she went into the veterinary field. In less than 2 years she went from being a receptionist to running a vet practice. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif She is taking this one REALLY hard. She feels like she lost a child. The positive is that right before he passed, he had a breeding, so....if God smiles upon us, we'll have a Rocky Jr. in the litter. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    We usually never do either. This was a very rare deal. We never will again though.

    Re: DON\'T FEED YOUR PETS ROTISSERI CHICKEN!!

    Thanks for the sympathies guys. I really appreciate it. I just wanted to help another family avoid making the same mistake we did. To say it sux is putting it very mildly for us. I would have emptied my bank account and maxed my credit cards to save the little guy. Anyway, I just wanted to get the warning out to people.

    I'm considering having a "chat" with the store manager of the Winco when I get back in town. Prolly won't do any good, but you never know.

    I have a friend that is very good at this kind of thing.
    "talking" with managers that is. His firm usually does personal injury but he might be interested in this case.......

    I know. I can count the times we gave him people food on 2 fingers. I have no idea why we did it. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif It's now a zero tolerance rule in our house. No people food for the dogs...PERIOD!

    We had him since he was 12 weeks old. He went everywhere with us. Now that we have the burb, all the dogs usually go with us. They are like our kids, and better behaved than many children. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif So, it's like we lost a child. f'n sux. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
