Last night Luna decided to pull up some grass in the front yard and accidentally bit on one of those sticker plants with the spiky seeds. Unfortunately, one of them got stuck to the roof of her mouth just behind her top front teeth. She was scratching at her mouth and threw up a bit when she came inside and I thought she got a Bufo toad but when I looked in her mouth and in her eyes i didn’t notice any sign of the poison. After a few minutes of inspecting, I noticed it and began trying to pull it out but she got a little aggressive and didn’t want us touching it at all. The adrenaline rush sucked because it made me all shaky since I hate seeing any of my pets in pain even if it’s something this small. I guess what I want to know is when something like this happens, what’s your advice on keeping them calm and trying to remove something foreign from their body since they do not know you’re just trying to help. After a few minutes, it ended up coming out on it’s own luckily, but it wouldn’t have been easy to fight her to keep her mouth open to pull something like that out. Especially when she gets older…
