Beware of the wild turkey that roam the yards this time of year. We've had about 10-15 of them grazing (and pooping) in our yard every morning these past two weeks. Meanwhile, my two pups came down with wicked bad dysentery that lasted a whole week! At first I thought it was just a virus. I tried some home remedies that helped a bit and then one morning while looking at the turkeys it came to me, "those turkeys!" I limited the time my dogs spent hanging outside and didn't let them eat any grass or sniff around and they got better. Now, easy child's puppy is here and we haven't seen the turkeys too much, but they are still around. easy child's pup doesn't hang outside without me, but one day while talking with H, she was licking at something in the lawn....well, she got the dysentery! I was up all night last night with her running outside. Turns out the turkey poop makes my dogs poop - too much! Beware!
