A woman has been hospitalized after her daughter’s dog. She accidentally defecated on her face while she was asleep.

Amanda Gommo, 51, spent three days in hospital after Belle, a chihuahua, had a ‘little accident’ on her face, including in her mouth, causing her to become violently ill and requiring medical treatment.

Ms. Gommo, from Bristol, said she was cuddling the dog while taking an afternoon nap when it became ill and had ‘violent diarrhea,’ with some excrement falling into her mouth.

Belle has since been forgiven for her mishap. Ms. Gommo declared that she ‘will be more mindful of what position we sleep in in the future.

Mrs. Gommo was sent to the hospital.

Following the incident, Ms. Gommo ran to the bathroom to be sick. Still, she was taken to the hospital after falling ill with a gastrointestinal infection passed on from Belle.

She said of the ordeal: ‘I rushed to the bathroom, and my son was in the shower before I washed it. I had time to take a quick snap!

‘It was disgusting, and I was hurling violently for hours after – I just couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth.’

Belle was taken to the vet, where she was put on antibiotics due to a ‘nasty stomach bug.’

Later that day, Ms. Gommo started showing similar symptoms to that of Belle and rang 111, who dispatched an ambulance to her home.

Ms. Gommo said she still loves Belle with all her heart following the incident, which put her in hospital. 

Paramedics prescribed her painkillers for her stomach cramps and instructed her to drink lots of water to flush out any potential infection.

After their visit, her symptoms worsened, and 48 hours later, the cramps spread all over her body.

Ms. Gommo’s mother then rang 999, which sent another ambulance and admitted her to the Bristol Royal Infirmary. Where she was immediately put on a drip.

There, doctors diagnosed her with a gastrointestinal infection that passed through Belle’s feces into her mouth days earlier.

She was kept under observation for three days. While they rehydrated her with the electrolytes and glucose that she had lost.

What disease does Ms. Gommo have after Chi defecated on her face?

Ms. Gommo, who also suffers from Crohn’s disease, said: ‘From when I got ill to when I was put on the drip. I couldn’t eat a thing.

‘The cramps got worse and worse until I could feel them all over my body – even in my legs.

‘They sent an ambulance the second time, and I was so dehydrated from being sick. And having diarrhea that my kidneys had shriveled to half their size.

‘I was kept in hospital for three days until they’d flushed the infection out through a drip.

‘My discharge note said I’d suffered a gastrointestinal infection caused by a dog defecating in my mouth. Something doctors had never witnessed before.

‘I’ve been drinking two Lucozades a day, plenty of tea, and loads of water since it happened. And I’m happy to say both me and Belle are on the mend.

‘I’ve forgiven Belle for her little accident. And I still love her with all my heart, but I will be more mindful of what position we sleep in in the future!’
