    My heart goes out to you. I hope your dog pulls through and that the vet you're using starts communicating better with you. Are you able to go and spend time with your dog while he's at the vet? Every vet I've gone to allows visits while your pet is hospitalized. It might also encourage your vet to communicate better, since they see you there. That, or find another vet who will communicate with you.
    My regular vet is situated within the notting hill carnival boundaries so had it's windows boarded up and was completely closed. There is an emergency service but would have taken a hellishly long time to reach because of having to go right around the carnival boundaries. Not to mention the difficulties of finding a vet on a bank holiday monday.

    So i phoned around and took him to the rspca. It operates slightly differently from my vet (which is private), because it's a charity. The service is poor in comparisson and i still have to pay (and i do not begrudge it at all) but it's a brilliant service if you have no alternative in an emergency. Much like the NHS.

    I have to wait until after lunch tomorrow to phone back and find out the latest news and to see if we can visit. They said he was in isolation and we would have to go in suited and booted if allowed.

    Honestly though i will be phoning my vet tomorrow, if i don't get some communication flow, to ask their opinion and if necessary will see if i can get him transferred.

    I can understand this if it's Parvo and they're afraid of it spreading to the general dog population. It's a nasty virus. But, also, seeing you might help keep your dog's spirits up. I know my cats did better when I visited them. I hope you're able to spend some time with him. If it's going to be a long hospitalization, I would ask if it's possible to bring something expendable from home to put in your dog's kennel/cage, like a blanket or a toy. I say expendable because it might have to be thrown out if he has something that's very contagious. But something familiar from home also helps to lift their spirits. Just a thought.

    Yessss

    Pamper him up good, girl, with lots of cuddles, food and peace and quiet in between!

    If need be, they can probably forcefeed him, but its better for both his physical and mental wellbeing that he feels comfortable enough to eat on his own

    He is still pretty floored but a tad brighter today, by that i mean he managed to walk around a couple of times befor slumping out again. Still has sore tum but did eat a few morsels and managed to keep meds down.

    So thats his chart done, i prescribe more snuggles. Gosh all the main males in my life right now are just crazy for the snuggles.

    That must be my superhero power!!

    oohhh yeah
