Please, Keep Ekko In Your Prayers


Recommended Posts

 

Thanks! But Ekko will not be put under with this vet again, nor will the boys.

She was under for 2 hours and that's a bit ridiculous.

 

And again, just in case anyone missed it, this is not the vet that was refered to us.

 

Wow, I would be furious with the staff on the scheduling snafu. The staff at my vet's office knows that I will only agree to have our regular vet see Mandy. I hope Ekko is feeling better.

Bless you Ekko, you are one tough cookie to pull through this ordeal. At least you are home and being spoilt and have love by the bucketful coming from everyone, so many positive thoughts, it has to help. Here's to a speedy recoverybighug.gif

When I started this thread, I thought it was a little foolish to ask for support over a dental. I knew it would be a little scary for Ekko but never imagined this. She was a very sick girl yesterday

 

The vet asked me yesterday if I had studied to be a vet and I told her no, and I told her that she will learn if she ever deals with GH people, she will realize that we all will educate ourselves either through research, or experience so we insure proper care for our Greys. We're involved with their care. We're a different breed smile.gif

 

Ekko had a restful night and was eager to eat this morning. I was able to give her the Metacam because she had a full stomach, however I am not giving her the antibiotic. I don't like Amoxicillin and now that I'm thinking more clearly, I will call and get Clavamox.

 

Ekko is on her way to being Ekko smile.gif

 

And just a note on sick stomachs, there are a lot of good drugs out there, like Carafate and such, but Cerenia is the best for a very sick stomach. The shot does sting, but relief is felt right away

 

Thanks again everyone

GREAT news!

 

The Metacam is a wonderful medication, and it should really help her pain and discomfort. Also good that she is eating!

 

Thank God everything turned out OK! Send her a huge hug from us!

It's never foolish to ask for support.

 

I'm glad Ekko is getting back to normal!

Good to hear that Ekko is feeling better today but what a disaster with the whole thing :angry:

 

I wonder, if the tooth was in that tight that Ekko felt it being pulled, did it really even have to come out?? And to tell you about it :blink: Things that really make you go Hmmmm????

Then we'll really know she's feeling better :lol

 

Dentals are very scary. We all need support through them.

NEVER feel silly about that! We are all in the same frame of mind as you so we fully understand your original post. I am so happy to hear that our Ekko is better.

Such good news, you'll be resting better now, too. Well, on second thought, maybe not...if Ekko is feeling really better...watch out world!

 

Claudia would you elaborate on your reservations about amoxicillin? I've never had a vet use Clavamox before, but have had amoxicillin and ceflexin prescribed a bunch of times (for all breeds, not just greys). It will be good info for future use.
