Ordeal at the Vet's

Sunday, July 08, 2012

Yesterday's vet visit was, well, let's say - a little less than a nightmare. But we'll start with the end results first.

Harry's medicated eyedrops have already begun working. Ulcerated infected eyes seem to be in his future as he doesn't have proper tearduct drainage and it all pools no matter how often I clean those beautiful eyes. So, that's the great news. That he's already begun to feel better.

I'll just leave it at that, rather than rehashing the difficulties. Suffice it to say that the two hours I spent there were mostly wait time due to medical emergencies of other pets that came in.

Wishing all a wonderful day.

(p.s. Everyone raved about how well-behaved Harry was. Which made me laugh because enroute was a nightmare with his loud crying. But it'll be easier next time since I now know this new vet, and like her a lot. Also, she is less expensive than my former vet, although a little farther to drive.)

    Wishing you luck with your pet's medical concerns! I have two dogs of my own and it always breaks my heart a little when a medical problem pops up.

    Hopefully there will now be less stress for both you and Harry.

    Glad the meds are helping - it's never 'fun' to take any of my cats to the vet. They all hate the car and I swear it's a miracle the police haven't pulled me over for excessive noise or suspicion of cat torture! Hope things go better in the future and best of health to Harry!

    Sorry to hear that trips to the Vet will be a regular thing, but glad the medication is working. Hopefully Harry will like this new Vet also and won't cry so much next time you take him.

    While it's never fun to wait, here's how I tend to look at it: if I had an emergency, I'd hope my vet would put me first in line, too.

    Sorry it was not a good experience.
