TheFullHouse Posted March 9, 2012 Share Posted March 9, 2012 I have heard so many people complain about the trouble they have with their vet's and I thought I'd just put out there that there are a lot of really good vet's and I have two of them. Yesterday was not a good day in the full house. Arrow had a vet appointment because he has been taking some antibiotic's for an infection in his leg and it needed to be rechecked. During this time Valentino started having issues with getting up and down and since we just lost two of his littermates to back problems I was very concerned. We called our vet's office and asked if it would be a problem to bring Valentino in when we brought in Arrow. They told us no problem and thanks for calling and asking! Mike took both boys, Arrow has another week of antibiotics because the leg isn't totally clear and Valentino now has arthritis in his back. While Mike is checking out Dr. B comes out and Mike is trying to reschedule Arrow's dental and yearly check up and they didn't have any openings for next week but Dr. B told them to fit us in. While Mike is on his way home, Jilly Bean who has been sleeping peacefully on our bed wakes up to Joey taking a flying leap on to the bed. She reacts like she's being attacked, goes for Joey and of course he nails her. Mike calls and I tell him what has just happened so he immediately calls the vet to see if we can get her in first thing in the morning. Dr. B says from the sounds of it she should be seen right away and to call him when Mike gets home and if he's still in the office we can bring her back. Mike gets home, he calls, Dr. B is still there and tells us to bring her in right away. By the time we get there it is almost 7:00! He looks at Jilly Bean and finds another gash I missed and said, yep, she needed to be sewn up right away so as we're talking he gives Jilly a sedative and we chat until she's a limp noodle in his arms. He tells us to go home and Jilly Bean will be staying the night. We thank him profusely for waiting for us. I did tell him in the beginning that we would just take her to the e-vet but he said no, if he could prevent us from having to go to the e-vet he would. I'll be baking up some cookies and getting a thank you note for Mike to take with him next Wednesday when Arrow goes in for his dental and physical! From the girls behind the front desk, to the vet techs in the back and Dr. B and Dr. Hezel, we couldn't ask for better care for our dogs. Mike just picked up Jilly Bean. She has to wear a shirt for 10 days and is now on antibiotics too, so now I have 3 on medication. Enjoy those years when they are young and you spend very little at the vet's office because when they get old, it catches up with you. Oh and I need to buy stock in Pill Pockets!
