Lou (tk Lumiere) Back From Vet

Recommended Posts

Lou had been having several episodes of pain in the cervical area lately, so I arranged to have xrays done today.

I dropped him and his bed off at 8:00. Vet office laughed as I lugged the bed in. Why they asked? I told them no need to cage him, just put his bed in a room and he will remain there. So they did and when I picked him up they said he didn't move after the procedures!!

Lou had spine and cervical xrays which revealed compressed vertebraes, believe R4-5. While he was sedated, vet recommended to do a dental, so his teeth are squeaky clean now.


Lou will continue to go to chiro, no barrelling down the stairs and easy walks. Drugs of dexamethasone and muscle relaxer when needed.

We can handle this.


So the breakdown of todays visit is as follows:

Cervical and Spine xrays 292.00


Dental 390.00

Antibiotics 133.00

Heartguard for Lou and Plummer 76.00


I have pet insurance, I have no clue what they will cover.

All and all my Lou will be ok.
