The Vet’s bill thus far is $481. (In addition to the $189 we spent two weeks ago).
They have no clue what is wrong with her. They have checked out her heart, her liver, her kidneys… checked for anemia, diabetes, infections… Nothing. She is healthy as hell. Except for the severe panting/gasping that keeps recurring. Also, the medicine that they gave her before would have helped any arthritis, allergies and/or asthma.
He was kind enough to say “I don’t want to scare you,” before he said, “it’s the surgeon’s thought that there may be a tumor in her nose or throat that is above the edge of the X-ray so we can’t see it and it is blocking her breathing.”
Don’t want to scare me? I nearly threw up when he said she may have a TUMOR in her HEAD.
They kept her another night and are planning to scope out her throat tomorrow.
We didn’t want her to see us and get all agitated again, so we just peeked through the door at her kennel and saw her fur fluffing out of the sides. Just about broke my heart.
When I got home, I saw one of her bones on the floor and burst into tears.
