Princess is Gone

Friday, September 19, 2008

My daughters dog, got sick a few weeks ago and we took her to the vet (it was Sunday so not the regular vet). The Dr. seemed very nice and concerned. They did a tough of test, xrays, etc and decided she had a viral infection she thought. So they gave her several shots, antibiotics, stuff to stop the vomiting, a saline pack in the upper back that would slowly leak into her system they said. Princess was very tired when I took her, but could still walk. She could not walk when we left the hospital, but they said it was the meds. We get her home and about 3 hrs later she starts having trouble breathing, starts shaking, seizure like. Unable to reach the vet b/c they close at 5pm, The only 24 hr vet is about 30 mins away. Within in about 10 minutes she passes away. Vet next day has no idea.

Don't take your pet to BanField Animal Hospital at least not the one in Florence KY.

She was in good health, just had been vomiting and drinking a lot of water. She was not old, only 7.
Now I only have the one left Peanut, her brother.
The pain of losing a family pet is so hard, I am not sure I can handle any more. This was number 3 in about 4 years for us. The other two were the parents of the Princess and Peanut. Grizz went from old age and Snoopy got very sick and was paralyzed in the back and legs.

    I am SO sorry for your loss! My heart goes out to you and your family!

    I used to live in Phoenix, Az and the Banfield there is bad too. It is attached to a PetSmart (They have a boarding facility there, which is where I worked.) I could tell stories about how many times I had to go over there and give dogs water, take muzzles off of dogs that had been there for hours and hadn't been seen. I was awful. I do not recommend Banfield there either. They had a very nonchalant attitude about everything.
