    Does not make sense to me, but if thats his/your reasoning and you have accepted it then its all good I guess.

    Nup, I really don't understand any of this...

    You work for one vet, yet take your animals to another? I'm baffled Myf, I truly am!
    Lady has been losing weight for a couple of months, but your boss won't look at the dog or give you time off to take her to a vet to be diagnosed? I'm still baffled. More than usual, I mean.

    Hey Myf I have only just seen this thread. I hope everything will be ok for her. Have you tried an oatmeal bath? It might sooth the skin and give her a bit of relief.
    Good luck with her

    I just saw this thread as well and I'm sorry I didn't see it sooner . I hope Lady is going to be ok and I agree with the others - why couldn't he take 15 minutes to check out a dog who's obviously ill?

    Oh Myf,so sorry to hear she's not well!! huge get well vibes coming your way

    But kiddo....Lades needs a vet now.
    Not tomorrow , not next week.
    Your Boss sounds like a right **** to be honest and no animal lover ( let alone a vet) can just hang up their love when its knock off time ,you know this as well as we do Myf
    She's obviously not well and her skin alone would be driving her crazy. Have you tried a little phenergan as well as I second the oatmeal bath .

    Hi Aussiemyf

    beware of the nice guys is all I can say.

    I do agree that it is perfectly reasonable to take your dog to a different vet. I often worked with medicos when I was at uni, got some in the family, and there's no way I'd see any of those that we saw regularily or on a social basis, for a check up. They know too much about you and can fall in the trap of assuming things about your health that might not be true.

    Everyone, I appreciate your care and concern, I really do, it means so much to me to know I have other people who are so worried about a little dog, they have never even met before, but Lady is not dying. She is not going to die before next week. Yes, I am worried, but thats a typical owner response. I trust the man who has done 6 years of university, the man I have watched for the last year and a half perform life saving surgery.
    A dog thats losing weight, believe it or not, is not in need of an emergency vet visit. A check up yes, and you should be concerned, but no need to rush her around, making people go out of their way to help you.
    Although I am worried about Lady, and annoyed that yes, my boss couldn't give you a 10minute look over, I can understand how he feels, and I think its unfair to say these things about him, considering you've only heard these few 'bad' things about him. Have you considered maybe he's having difficulties at home with his sick son? Do you know any of the good he does? Unless you work with him, then you don't. I know you are trying to make me feel better, but slagging off the person that has taught me so much is not the way to do it.
    Lady will get a check up ASAP, when it sees fit to everyone. Whether its this week or the next, she will get to a vet.
    This isn't meant to be an argument

    I wasn't asking for you to call him names and accuse him of not loving animals. I wasn't asking for any feedback on him at all, so why would I tell you he has a sick son at home

    I see these people as my friends, and I don't want that when im asking for medical help with my animals. I want a perspective from people that don't know what I did on the weekend. And thats my choice, and what does it matter?
    I am asking him to check her over as a friend, not as a patient, therefore, I wont pay, therefore, if after 9 hours of work, if he wants to get home to his wife and 3 children, im not gonna spin him around and say 'check my dog now!'
    He would be doing it as a favour to a friend.

    myf, how is Lady feeling today? Please let us know what her diagnosis is after she is checked.
    Hopeing that it is something simple that can be fixed quickly and she can be back to normal in no time at all!
