MEET Miggles – a mischievous mutt who gave his worried owners a real migraine.
The curious puppy swallowed a whole box of painkillers – amounting to 80 times the toxic dose.
It would have been enough to kill most dogs, never mind one as small as Miggles.
The Jack Russell-chihuahua cross weighs just 1.2 kilos – little more than a bag of sugar.
Owner Emma Robinson of High Green, Sheffield, noticed there was something wrong when she saw Miggles staggering about in the kitchen, with the remnants of a 16-tablet box of Neurofen on the floor.
He slipped into a coma but Emma rushed him to Abbey Vets in Barnsley.
Vet Lisa Flood said: “For a dog so small and an overdose so large his chances of survival were slim. This dog was a real fighter and has made a remarkable recovery.”
A relieved Emma said: “It was touch and go but he’s as mischievous as ever. We are making sure we are keeping tablets well away from him.”
