    Default Do we have any animal doctors in the house? pro help needed.

    So my doggy is super unwell

    He has been admitted to the animal hospital. They have said that they are hopeful he will pull through but i'm wanting to get some real info as i always feel palmed off with the regular nonsense drivel.

    Have googled symptoms, visited pet health sites etc but without much sucess as he has several symptoms that are coming up singularly but not together.

    I can give symptoms but would prefer to do that via pm rather that publicly.

    Anyone here up on animal illnesses & prognosis? ...or a vetenary surgeon/nurse?

    Thanks you's.

    He made it through the night which is a big sigh of relief.

    Waiting on vets to do their rounds for more specific diagnosis.

    Been trying to get through to these people for hours, it's getting ridiculous. Hum ho will carry on trying.

    I suppose no news is good news.

    After two and a half hours of calling every few minutes i finally got through, apparently they had no calls for nearly three hours...

    They are not sure if it's Hemorrhagic GastroEnteritis or Parvovirus.

    So i got through at 4.30 after calling since 2pm and they want me to call back after 5pm.

    I honestly think the guy i spoke to didn't have a fucking clue... Jesus, i really need to understand what is going on.

    I just had a real life friend nurse her 9 month old puppy through Parvo. She works as a nurse and has done 4H work with her daughter, so she felt comfortable treating her dog at home. She had to give lots of subcutaneous fluids and antibiotic injections. Parvo is a tough one to get through, though. It tends to be harder on the young pups.

    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.
