Belly Ache and Goats: Q&A

     Hi, all! Dachshund Mommy here. Nola got into and ate our outside cats' wet and dry food (a whole can of wet, plus 1-2 cups dry), and now has a horrid belly ache. (I'm writing on Monday night, so hopefully she's better today/tomorrow!) It's a double edged sword; it's commercial food, which Nola has not been on in over a year. She's used to real meat, fruit and veggies with no preservatives or crappy ingredients. And second, the food has corn and soy, which Nola is allergic to.

     My poor Bean is gassy, has loose poop, a gurgly stomach, and a bad belly ache. She can't get comfy and groans. She wants her belly rubbed and is extra clingy. It's so sad! Fingers crossed and POTP she perks up!

"I don't feel good, Momma!"
She's pretty bloated from the crap, too. :( My poor Bug!

     A couple of you asked on yesterday's post what we do/are planning to do with the goats, so I'm here to enlighten you. ;) All three of "the girls" are dairy goats. We have them so we can get milk and make cheese, soap, yogurt, ice cream, lotion, shampoo and just to have milk. We'll be selling some and keeping some for ourselves. All of these adventures will be documented on the blog, of course!

  2. Oh Nola! We hope you feel better soon!


  3. Hey Girlfurend,
    Just what in the heck were you thinking Nola? Getting into that nasty kitty food is not good for you sweetie. We're all so very sorry to hear that you are not feeling too good because of it. Your Mommy's food is MUCH better, so we just don't get it. It's almost like you "became a dog" instead of the princess that you are. We hope that your belly ache goes away quickly and that you're back into princess mode once again.

    Thanks for letting us know about your goat's! Now we know why you have them. We can't wait to read all about them in the near future and also to see your Mommy making cheese and lotion and such. That is going to be a lot of fun. They sure are cute and we enjoy seeing them.

    MY sweet Newby finally asked me to be his Valentine! I'm so relieved. Of course I just had to say YES!!

    Feel better our little furend. We're keeping our paws crossed for you.

    Love ya,
    Lily Belle & Muffin

  4. Poor Nola! I hope she's feeling better soon.

    I love goat milk soap. I buy from a company in Indiana called Goat Milk Stuff. They have a lot of information about goats on their website (goatmilkstuff.com). They have Alpine Goats. I hope to one day visit their farm. I look forward to buying some of your soap!

  5. I hope you are feeling better Nola....sometimes it tastes SO good but later on....well, you know now.... Love the goats!

  6. We hope you feel better soon, Nola. Cute goats.

  7. On no Nola, you are sicker than me. I hope you feel better soon!

    Our Lady's cousin use to keep goats for milk and cheese. Have fun with that!

  8. Poor Nola! We'll be keeping our paws crossed for you to feel better very soon. Tummy aches are awful.

  9. Nola,

    I hope you are feeling much better today.

    Have a fun day
    Benny & Lily

  11. It's so awful when the dogs are not well isn't it. I hope she is feeling much better soon.
    I love goat's cheese and soap made with goat milk. Can't wait to see how you make them all!

  12. Nola! Fast-food isn't good for our figures!!

    Feel better,

    -Ruby (who will eat ANYTHING!)

  13. Uh oh, been there and done that Nola! Kitty food calls sometimes, huh? Well, since it's the next day, I really hope that you are feeling much more like your Happy self! I'll be thinking about you, just in case though! Oooooo, we love love love goat's cheese! Nummy!!

  14. Aww, Nola, you poor thing. :( Feel better soon! Lassie and Petal both know how you feel.
    Feel better, but remember to milk it for all it's worth. ;)

    Your plans for the goats are awesome! I'm excited to see that all unfold. :)

    Marquie, Lassie & Petal

  15. Poor Nola...I sure hope she feels better today. We have a store that sells organic goat milk, soap, candy etc...it is all great!

  16. Poor Nola...I sure hope your belly starts feeling better really soon!

    My mom is so excited about your dairy goats!! We use to have some and my mom misses fresh milk so much! Just the other day her and dad were talking about getting some more just for the milk. I miss the goat poop, it is a delight to roll in it...just in case you wanted to know! ;)


  17. Poor Nola. To find such a treasure and then to have to suffer...just not fair.

    SHE only uses Goat's Milk Soap...

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  18. OH Nola... So sorry that you are feeling sicky. We hope you are totally well by now.

    Goat's milk makes the Bestest Home Made Ice Scream in the world.

  19. Howdy Nola, sorry you got the tummy ache but that cat food is pretty hard to resist isn't it. Hope you are feeling better real soon. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory. P.S. We love your goats, totally cool!

  20. So sorry to hear you have a tummy ache Nola. I sure hope you are doing better now. I can't wait to learn how to make stuff from goats milk. That will be fun.


  21. ok, Nola, I know how you feel...kinda like I do after Thanksgiving when I've eaten way too much of the chocolate cake on top of the big turkey meal! Take it easy for a few days! (Why is it that the dogs want to eat the cat food and the cats want to eat the dog kibble?)

  22. Hope your tummy feels better soon

  23. Oh so sorry to hear Nola's not feeling well. :( We will hold her close in our thoughts and hope the icky stuff passes out of her soon.

    LOVE the goats! I love to make goat cheese but it's awful hard to come by goat's milk around here. Hope you get lots to make all the cool stuff you're talking about. And you get to enjoy the cuteness of goats, too!

  24. Oh Nola....This is bad--really bad. I hope your tummy feels better by now.

  25. Poor Pup! Maybe she will learn a lesson? Nah.... Hope you get better!

  26. Oh Nola, why gurl?! Well, I would say you probally won't do that again, butts that never works for me! BOL
    I know all abouts the gassy, gurgly tummy, it's no fun. Sorry you have to go through this. I'll keep my paws crossed that the worse of it is over, and you'll be right as rain tonight!

  27. Based on your title, I thought that Nola had a belly ache from eating goat poop! It sounds like cat food is almost as bad. I hope that she feels better very soon! Sending potp.

  28. We sure hope NOLA is feeling much better today. Sending White Dog sympathy and positive thoughts.

    Goat cheese and lotions, how fantastic! We admire your ambition and love the entire concept.

  29. Poor Nola, I hope you feel better by now. I am crossing paws until I know you are all better and resting.

    Loveys Sasha

  30. Poor Nola. Hope you feel better. I know cat food might smell yummy, but it just isn't good for you!

  31. Oh poor Nola! It happens to all of us from time to time, I hope that she recovers quickly!

  32. Oh Nola, wes is sure it seemed like a good idea at the time. And wes hopes yous is feeling better.

  33. Oh Nola, I am hoping you are back to your Diva self really soon!! Just say No to the kitty food!!
