UPDATE ON MAGGIE
We don't really know what happened...it could have been to many shots at one time, or since Mom calls them the stoopid vet they could have screwed up the dosage...all I know is one minute Dad and I are on our way home, after I got my nails cut like a good girl, my butt done like a good girl, and my shots like a good girl....well Gussie and Stellie were so happy to see me cos I was gone like 14 minutes and they missed me. I was telling them what all happened to me, and the next thing I knew I couldn't get my breath very good and my face was swelling up. See those wrinkles on my face, well by the time Mom got home which was only 10 min. after I started to react my face was huge, and she couldn't see my eyes, and all my skin was red. Even the skin inside my ears, and on my tummy! I had hives all over my legs and head and back. Well, Mom scooped me up and ran out to the stoopid vet. They gave me ANOTHER shot of predisone and some benadryl pills to take around supper time.
I wouldn't stop itching tho most of the day. Dad stayed home wif me and when Momma came home she gave me the rest of my med's. My face was still pretty swollen up at 4:30 and I was still hivey and itchy. Mom was afraid I would have to go back out to the Vet. I took my pills like a good girl tho, and tried to go to sleep but just couldn't get comfortable. PLUS Gussie wanted me to play wif him and he kept bugging me.
Finally Mom had Dad get the air mattress out and she made a comfy bed for hers and me to rest on while we all watched tv. I slept for awhile but was still itchy. BUT this morning when we all woke up magically I was healed, no hives, no lumps or bumps and no swelling of the face!! I ran out to my food bowl and ate my breakfast right up. I finks it was cos of all those prayers coming my way and snuggling up to momma all night long.
No more shots for me at the stoopid vet anymore. Mom says from now on we only get things like that at the good vet, and she is going to tell him what happened so they can work out a different plan for me.
