Re: My dog nearly died last night!!!

I'm glad to hear that the pup survived.

However, and for the benefit of the other readers, could you please elaborate on what the cause was? (if known).

The speculation of poisoning seems remote to me, as a constriction of the pupils is associated with anti-choline esterase poisoning (depending on the chemical of course), not 'dilation'.

(chemical poisoning is horrific, and extremely painful for the animal).

I have had my dogs stung by wasps before and they do swell up in big red blotches.... but not the symptoms you described.

Fingers crossed the little fella pulls through.
