Boy, have I sure got somefin to let all my kitties furiends and everybody else out there know...and this is all the complete truth.
Meowmy noticed I was using the box quite a few times in the morning last Wednesday, August 3. So she made me a doctors appt. for the afternoon. Now I was being my self, nothing out of the ordinary. Meowmy drove twenty miles to the doctors to get me an Acevet...to drug me up, as I hate the vets place with orange passion.
So we get there for 3 p.m., and then this vet says she can't feel my bladder and needs to do an ultra sound to find it. Meowmy goes and waites outside, and a couple of minutes later the vet comes back out with a syringe half full of blood. She says this is not a good sign and goes to test for cyctology.
She comes back and says I need more tests, but they need money for all this as Meowmy told them that she only has $110.00 on her for the day. The vet says that Meowmy has to come up with more or they were going to give me a needle. Now Meowmy was crying and telling me they wanted to kill me and she wasn't going to let them to it...Oh Boy!!! you should have seen Meowmy go nuts on them, lots of shouting and crying. Hey, I was feeling no pain, so I couldn't just take off from the table and boot my rear end out of that joint.
To make a long story short, Meowmy had to make a phone call and sell her car on the spot back to her old boss. He ripped Meowmy off royally, lost over $2100.00 on that deal. but what else could she do on the spot...her back was up against the wall and she wasn't gooing to let them kill me for no good reason.
So I had to spend the night. The bad vet ran a cathator into me to flush me out, pumped me up with lots of luquid and more drugs. Then left me all alone for the night. She phone my Meowm and Meowmy told them to keep me free from pain, I had none by the way, and she also wanted me to be kept sedated. None of this happend.
The next morning the bad vet phoned Meowmy to let her know I was being my fractious self, hee hee!! That I had destroyed my kennel, moving everything around and then that I had pulled my cathator out!! My Meowmy had a flip out, wanting to know if I was injured or hurt. The vet didn't know. Meowm wanted to know how this could have happend, as I was wearing a collar and also had a intervenious iv in my right front leg. Anyway, they told Meowmy to come pick me up, as I was being myself (fractious) and they could'nt handle me. And also Meowmy reached her $500.00 limit.
Meowmy came and got me in the early afternoon, but when she got there they told her she would have to waite as she didn't phone ahead to let them know she was on her way to get me...Meowmy said that was fine, as she wasn't in a hurry and just wanted to see me, which she did. I was hooked up to the iv still, had the collar around me head and my rear end dumped into the litter box. I would'nt eat or drink anything until I got home.
They wanted me to have surgery This past Tuesday, August 9, but we have no money for that and it was also the anniversary of her dog, Bobbie's death..so no way was I having surgery then. Meowmy has been trying to get financing thru IFiance pet service of some kind. On Thursday Meowmy met with another vet In Neepawa, a half hour away from us who reviewed my file and spent about 45 minutes going over everything with my Meowm...The bad vet appears to have given me way too much meds, lots of things to boost the price which was unnessary. He has agreed to become my new doctor. He asked what kind of surgery this stupid vet wanted me to have and when he heard about them wanting to cut open my bladder and scrapping it, he was outraged and said absolutely not!! I can have a surgery that will fix me once and for all...make my uretha like a girls, nice and widel...no more problems..so now Meowmy feels better and is still watching me and if I really need surgery this is the way to go and he will work with us, financially too.
Now my symtoms of crystalls were only needing to pee alot and I was doing small amounts. Meowmy watches me like a hawk and caught on to a potentially big problem right away.
This is Mary, Friday's Mommy...I just about lost Friday to a vet who is looking at dollar signs and not the care of a patient or the owners feelings..Friday was not ready to go to Rainbow Bridge and i fought to keep him alive. I am so thankful I went to another vet for more options. The first vets name is Cam Nichole from the Gladstone Vet Clinic. I worked there once and can say for sure that things have changed at the clinic and not for the good. The new vet is Doctor Taylor from Neepawa Manitoba. I felt at ease with him. And when I left the office it felt like a huge rock was lifted off from my chest and shoulders.
One more thing, since Friday came home, he developed an upper respitory tract infection which is going away. It was explained to me he more than likelly had one as a kitten, before I rescued him and it comes out during stress times such as these.
Thank you for reading Friday's diary...go hug your babies and take good care of them...don't let a stupid vet try to take control of you or your pets lives..
I told Meowmy this morning that we should sue them...what do you all think about that???
Purrs to YOU
I's would sue the blank out of them for malpractice, AND report them to the state veterinary board, and try to get bad vets license pulled. I would also talk to the police, as what he did, demanding money right now, not tomorrow, or he would kill you, could be concidered extortion! Please let anyone you know in your area not to use that so called vet!! ( more like a butcher, if yous asks me!!!) GRRRRRR. HISSSSSSS!!
You should report that bad vet to the state veterinary board and in as many other places as you can. It'd be nice if he had his license pulled! Imagine extorting money and threatening the needle! That's horrifying! Are you able to get Care Credit? and does your new vet accept it? It's usually easy to get approved. Anyway, I'm glad Friday survived the ordeal at the bad vet place and glad you found a new vet who wants to help him. Purring for Friday and hope the upcoming surgery is successful.
OMC! :( What is wrong with that vet?! None of that should have happened to your mommy and you. I am so glad your mommy found another vet!
I don't think they should get away with that. Threatening the needle if you didn't come up with the money is like blackmail. That's disgusting I thought the vets policy was to care for animals. The vets I know, if you took in a injured wild animal they would care for it and then release it. I've seen lots of hedgehogs in the clinics. Yes I would look at mentioning this mean person to the vet board too.
I'm glad Fridays ok and we are purring he gets better soon.
Oh that is just not right! You should definitely report that vet! That is just horrifying that they would treat you that way! So glad you have a new vet. Congratulations on being a DDP today!
i was furry sick with crystals too and couldn't use the 'box'. after our vet visit (they gave me some meds and iv) mom found out i should never eat dry food again and make sure i get lots of fresh water and vitamin e. my visit was 2 years ago and i haven't had that problem since. dry food is a no no for me forever more now. i am so glad to hear you are doing ok now. healthy headbonks to you, Sammy
