NEWSFLASH! Nectarines Work Too!

Well we knew the acidic ingredients in lemons were good for clearing out Stella's phlegm that is produced thanks to her very small trachea. However, who knew bullies loved nectarines too? Well - they work just as well, if not better since it is probably much more enjoyable from her point of view. Warning - a very large poop also happened after she was chomping on the nectarine - I think all that fruit juice got her going! However, it seems to have really helped our clear out a ton of phlegm! If anyone knows of ill effects of dogs having nectarine juice let me know, otherwise - highly recommended!

  1. I think she was just really excited, its a ball that she can bite and get juice from!!!!

  2. Oh my gosh! I just found your blog. we are the proud owners of Rose - a 5 month bully who has had some phlegm lately. she was on two courses of antibiotics - amoxicillin but i think it made her not feel well. i laughed so hard when i saw the post of Stella's mucus puke!! Rose did that just last week and it was the grossest thing we've ever seen! thanks for your tips. i will definitely be a reader from now on.

  3. Judith,

    Yes - the explosion of phlegm can be quite alarming for first timers! We now look forward to seeing it come out, as it means Stella will be less likely to develop pneumonia. Give the lemons or nectarines a try with Rose and make sure to come back and let us know how it works!
