The perils of grass seeds!

Post by jackieholmes19 » 02 Jul 2014, 19:23

Not a doodle story - but this grass seed was found up one of my cats noses today! He had been sneezing for a while and then started to have blood from his nose yesterday. So put under this morning, and this humongous grass seed was found! :shock: evil seeds! :twisted: :twisted:

Poor puss - I bet he feels beter without that! I loathe those particular seeds - they lurk in doodle hair and are really hard to get out!

Poor cat, such a little thing that causes so much discomfort.
A couple of years ago my friends lab kept sneezing, a grass seed was found and the dog needed to be sedated before it was removed.
Sticky buds are around at the moment which are a nightmare on Dixie's coat.
Glad cat ok

I recently removed a similar seed from the ear hole of my local farmer. Thank goodness for the practice I have had removing them from various doggy ears, paws, noses and other holes over the years :lol: Have to say my friend the farmer was in a lot of pain and made almost as much fuss as Scrumpy does - at one point I was seriously considering a muzzle :wink: :lol:

Something like this seed once embedded in my collie's skin - and started to grow!! Always a good idea to check out your dood or cat regularly... Thank goodness your cat is feeling better now, poor little guy.
