Ok 2012 is def not our year.
My girl seemed to look like she stood up funny this morning.
I came home this Argo bout1pm with some chicken for her
And she can't get up.
So we rushed her right down to our vet 2 hours there $250
Later he says get her down to the ER
We have been there all nightlong .
Yes we have insurance to start off with
Both my vet and this new vet at the ER thought she was lacking calcium
As large breeds can when they have had puppies and they can get weak on
Their legs and collapse .
Anyway I gets my dog diary out and tells them she can't lack calcium cause
I give her calcium liquid every second night.
New vet says could be one of 3 things.
Calcium. . Snake bite .. Tick
Anyway the worst case she said the bill will be $6000
We have just recently paid 3 car regos $800 electricity bill
And water and rates notice.
The vet said what we can do is get pet finance then make the claim through
Our insurance and pay out the pe loan..
Both me & the husband were furious.
After calming down we decided its our only option.
Then vet vet comes in and says we have to have $2500 deposit right now .
Anyway in the end we didn't have this so w put our girl in the car as they said
Unless we wanted to put her down our only option was to take her home..
The husband went back into the stand said if we give u $600 now can we deal with the rest
Later.. Anyway they said yes all good.
She does the calcium test and it was negative she does the venom test $450 came back negative
And the vet says the snake bite has to of been done within 24hours to get a positive..
Our cattle dog had a tick one time and this was exact same symptoms but anyway she says
Sea pretty sure it's not a tick..
So so far my dog is at the vet over night and still paralyzed ...I haven't stopped crying with all this
Bad luck it has to end soon.
I can't help thinking that if my girl dies how cut I would be..
The vet will call me if anything changes. On the form the husband signed
It says once over night stay n obs $2000 most likely .
So yeah this is my life right now guys.
All I can say is thank goodness the puppies have started to eat on their own.
How much shit would I be in.?
If anyone knows or thinks what it could be please let me know...
Basically she's had no water all day as she's been paralyzed and lucky
She was under the tree in the shade.
Vet said maybe a snake went for the pups n she attacked it to protect her
Bubs.. Makes sense.
Maybe but we totally doubt it was a snake and the vet can't find a bite or a tick
Oh goodness me what am I going to
Do with myself.
