Imagine spending three days in the hospital after your dog poops in your mouth while sleeping.
51-year-old Amanda Gommo woke up from her afternoon nap with sh*t in her mouth after her daughter’s chihuahua Belle became ill and suffered from diarrhea.
“I was having my afternoon nap with Belle like I always do when I suddenly felt something squirt in my mouth,” said Gommo. “It was disgusting, and I was hurling violently for hours after. I just couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth.”
After being taken to the vet, Belle was diagnosed with a stomach bug.
Shortly after, Gommo sought medical attention after exhibiting some of the same symptoms as the dog.
“The cramps got worse and worse until I could feel them all over my body — even in my legs,” Gommo declared. “I was so dehydrated from being sick and having diarrhea that my kidneys had shriveled to half their size.”
Gommo was quickly taken to the hospital once more, where doctors diagnosed her with a gastrointestinal infection passed through her body through her dog’s feces.
