Mom doesn't like to do a mad, crabby post but she just needed to get this off her chest and she knows you guys will understand...so I let her do this post today. We are sorry right off the bat because it is a downer post, and we like to do funny posts.
My daughter Kylei has a dog that she got from the shelter back in November. His name is Bear. He is such a wonderful, happy, loveable dog. You can tell tho that he has been through trials and hurts in his life, but he has found his forever home now.
Well last Friday Kylei made another appt. to get him groomed so that wouldn't happen again, and she told the new vet what happened the last time and how she was worried about any type of drug they might give him. So they went ahead and gave him a 1/2 dose of Ketamine, it didn't help so the Vet gave him another 1/2 dose of Ketamine and he started having seizures. It took awhile to get the oxygen going, and then they had to give him some other type of anesthesia before the whole process was over. Kylei picked him up at 400 and took him home. Now poor Bear is once again, doing things like shaking, sleeping all day, not understanding about going outside to potty and not eating or drinking much. Kylei and I are both worried he may have had a stroke or something as serious from the Ketamine, WHICH was the SAME drug the other vet gave him.
When Kylei called the Vet yesterday to talk to her, she wouldn' t talk to Kylei but the office girl did, and told Kylei they did not give him Ketamine. Well, Kylei had the bill in front of her and it had charges for Ketamine on it. Even when the girl figured out Kylei was correct, she never asked about Bear or was concerned with his behavior NOR did the vet call kylei back.
We are very worried about Bear and if he will be able to come out of the effects of it. We just want him to be happy and healthy. As far as the pugs I am not taking them back there anymore. I told Kylei the hard lesson is we ALWAYS have to be our furkids voice because they don't have one of their own. Also, there are times we are smarter than the Vet and they need to listen to us!!!
Please keep Bear in your prayers today and his family.
