Avery is sick.
On Wednesday, I was petting her and all of a sudden she jumped up yelped and snapped at me. I didn’t see anything, but asked on Facebook who liked their vet in this part of town.
I have a vet who I LOVE, but last I saw her? She was splitting her time between 3 offices, none of which are close, one is very expensive and the other is a 6 hour ordeal and you don’t get to pick which doctor you see.
I had neither that kind of time or money on Wednesday. One of my friends works at a NFP vet near my new place, and said we could be seen. By the time we got there my dog had a massive welt on her leg.
They aspirated, sent it out, and gave her a steroid and and antibiotic shot.
Thursday, she screamed and the whole thing burst open. So we went back to the same vet. And they have us tramadol.
Friday, Avery screamed for 20 minutes so I took her back a 3rd time. They doubled the tramadol, added a second pain med and said to get back to normal because she seemed depressed.
Saturday we took a short trip to Starbucks.
She got tired really fast and we left.
In the middle of the night Avery screamed like I was beating her and I messaged the my contact at the vet we’d been seeing. She said they had the pathology reports and would email it.
This is what they sent an hour later.
Like I’m supposed to know what all that crap means.
My dog is in extreme pain, and the vet’s office is just saying “don’t come back.” I’m mad. I also think that saying “the pet” in the email is pretty shitty. I was there for several hours three days in a row, they could use “your dog” “she” or “Avery” but “the pet” what the heck. This is my family!
