Pregnant Woman Spends Thousands of Dollars to Treat Dog's Excessive Farting While the Real Culprit's Been Lying to Her Face

It got so bad at one point that the woman thought she is going to lose her dog to health problems that couldn't be diagmosed.

A dog owner was concerned when her dog wouldn't stop releasing stink bombs that made it impossible to be around. The situation got so bad that she had to spend thousands of dollars on vet bills only to find out later... that her poor dog was innocent.

Taking to Reddit, the pregnant woman shared her hilarious experience and wrote that it started around a month ago when she, her doggo, and her husband were having dinner. "I smelled something really disgusting," she wrote and then continued, "My husband instantly made a face so I knew it wasn't just me."

She then revealed that the smell was so nauseating that she had to leave the room. "Tbh I am pregnant and my sense of smell has been a little sensitive at this time. I couldn't stand the smell and left the room. It honestly smelled a little like rotten eggs. I thought it was a one-off because the dog does fart (as do we) but a fart this stinky isn't normal." Her husband later told her that it was probably the dog, reported The Mirror.

Initially, she said the "unbelievable" smell did make her doubt her pooch Jerry because she knew that even though dogs do fart, it is never this bad. But over the following weeks, it only got worse and she had to find all kinds of hacks to find a solution to the smelly affair.

She penned, "Over the next week, the smell would come again and again at random times. I lit candles, incense - NOTHING WORKED." Sickened and tired of everything, the soon-to-be mom took Jerry to the vet because she realized that "a fart this stinky isn't normal." However, even after the tests and diet change, nothing changed in the house.

"I was losing my goddamn mind," she wrote and continued, "my husband still kept his mouth shut. The vet was EXTREMELY confused and ordered a bunch of tests that cost a LOT. All the tests showed that the dog was fine." With the unsure diagnosis of her pet and the uncertainty surrounding his health, the woman's "anxiety started kicking in."

Elaborating her concern she wrote, "What if there's something wrong with him? what if we lose him? I'm so stressed out. It all came to a breaking point and I burst into tears. Had a full-on meltdown." She said that the whole ordeal had been going on for 5 weeks and till now she had not understood why it was happening. It's only after her breakdown that the real culprit came forward. Well, no points for guessing here. It was her sly husband that blamed the poor pooch for his stinky releases.

"Y'all, I lost it," she said and continued, "I kicked him out of the house. He went to stay with his friends. All of our friends are on my side. To be clear, I didn't mind he lied at the moment. But he KNEW we were going to the vet, the vet was confused. He EVEN WENT TO THE VET APPOINTMENTS WITH ME."

The woman was mad that it took her husband "a full-on panic attack and mental breakdown to say the truth." She revealed that even her husband's mother was on her side writing, "His mother, who normally thinks the sun shines out his a** is on my side as well. She called him, in no uncertain terms, an idiot."

The livid woman's husband did come back to their house, but she asked him to cover half of the vet charges. And now, he has been advised to change his diet!

The Redditors who went through the story realized that even though the incident sounded funny at first, it was actually very serious. One of them wrote, "At first I was smiling but when you think about how tortured the dog would have been going to the vet like that."

"How could he not have copped to it before she even took the dog the very first time??!! He obviously doesn’t care much about the dog. I hope he’s a much better human daddy than he was a doggy dad because she said she’s preggo," the commenter continued.
