Beth & Bob....understood, I just feel she should've been looked over WAY more thoroughly Mon already.
Callie.....I do have issues with this place since I began going there...nothing to severe but enough that it unnerved me.
-the vet tech came in the room, put her clipboard down, never acknowledged Madelynn, ( my Shepherd ) nothing, just PUSHED & I mean PUSHED on her hind end & said SITTT!! I jumped right up pushed her off my Moose & said DONT EVER push on her hind again...don'y you know what you could do to a shepherd by doing that????? She kept saying sorry & she didn't know, & I said how did you know???? you're a vet tech [8|] Needless to say, I was miffed.
- the SAME vet tech Mon with lil Gracie, after I already clipped them for her, decided to dremel my lil pups toenails. She took one of her nails down to the fur, I was like OMG!! @ that point I was scared what was wrong with Gracie & didn't say anything...I was thinking Parvo, & bad stuff. Chucky & I did discuss it though & he said, as did I, she will NEVER touch our kids again. The vet that day felt around her , listened to her heart, told me her poop was negative, said her eyes looked good, her ears looked great, & her lungs sounded fine. UMMMM ok, she came home yesterday, less than a week later with....
* Kennel Cough ( the vet yesterday said her lymphs were up & her throat was swollen & red )
* eye infection ( she said Basset eyes are droopy, but there was a low grade infection starting in it )
* the start of ear mites ( I cleaned her ears but was afraid to go in like I do the bigger girls....she said I'd rather be safe than sorry, took a swab, looked under the scope, they were starting she said &...they're not in the canal, let's take care of it now )
*Giardia ( this she told me takes 3 weeks to show up & you guys told me it's hard to dx )
I told the 1st vet EVERY symptom I told the last.....runny poop, sometimes bloody...bloated belly...she makes a hacking sound often, she grunts when you pick her up....she grunts when she poops.....she's gassy when she poops.
I told Chucky I'm soon going to make an appt with my former vet ( 2 hrs away, & just get a motel room so the drive isn't so hard on them ) I'm for sure calling them & seeing if they can recommend 1 here....VERY dissapointed . When you find a vet you'd trust with your most precious things, it sucks to move 2 hrs away [
