I know most of you are well aware of the dangers of foxtails. Last night my son was training in the yard and threw a bumper a bit too far. I landed in the neighbors "foxtail field" and instead of calling the dog off he let the dog go in and get the bumper.
I got a call asking what to do as the dog kept working his tongue and acting like something was caught. I told him to start with bread and lots of peanut butter to see if that helped. Later I think he went to the hydrogen peroxide and poured it down the throat to cause vomiting.
By the time I got home late it appeared the old dog was no longer distressed, and this morning no indication of a problem.
I absolutely hate foxtails and try like the devil to keep the dogs out of them. Good luck to all of you during this hunting season.
