make it stop!

Postby lenawest » Mon Aug 19, 2013 3:38 pm

Scooby the dog is finally better after $600.00.....

Bruiser is still pooping outside every box because his tail hurts. He keeps having what looks like muscle spasms and howling.

Perry is still licking rust and losing weight and whiskers. (and snotting on every surface)

Squirrel just never recovered from whatever happened to him. Can't jump worth shit anymore

Gimp's belly has exploded with cysts again. Nasty, weeping cysts. And, of course, his favorite place is on my desk.

I'm trying a new vet now who doesn't push Depomedrol and Convenia for everything. But, of course, that means a whole new run of vet bills and maxed out Care Credit!

I am going to ask the new vet practice if they ever work trade. Levon can clean their carpets every month and my plumbing company can do what ever they need if they pay for the materials.

I'm just dying trying to keep up with all this shit!

I'm tired

It doesn't hurt to ask if you can barter. Surely they would need those services now and then, and if you don't ask, the answer's always no.

Is that all there is?

Especially now. I've got 19 more cats to get tested and vaccinated for leukemia

You've got some good services to barter with, it makes a lot of sense to ask.

I hope they will work with you and perhaps jump the other vets shit for blatant misdiagnosis plus not double checking when it didn't work out the first time.

Wish I had a magic wand to make it go away.

You've got your hands full there. Good idea re trying bartering. With you good luck, Lena.

if this vet wont work with me on the tests and vaccinations, our local SNAP clinic does each test for 30.00. Its just not as easy and calm going there two at a time.

The second blood test to confirm if Perry has this haemobartonella is 95 freaking bucks! Plus the drugs, if it is! I always find a way, but why can't this shit happen when I'm making money! It always happens during slow periods

Perry, even though eating better, is getting skinnier and skinnier.
bruiser is cramping up so bad on his hind end, he just stops walking and cries.
I've got to find a way to do something for them.

that dickhead plumber got another check from a customer. I can't get an auto title loan because my van is in my company name, not mine. my sis wants me to get another loan on our property to save my animals and sanity and business. I just can't let her get deeper in the hole for this. :grump:

sigh......

Ok, just because I've seen the look in a cats eyes, and watched an ill cat move: I spent a few fucking hours today remodeling some areas of my backyard. To prep for the fucking graves I know I'm going to have to dig soon. Perry isn't getting better. Bruiser is miserable. Its not fair to make them hold on for me. Bruiser isn't terminal, just miserable. Pooping everywhere because his tail and back cramps up and he can't move fast enough. Just hunches over and howls. Perry seems worse off with the meds, really. He's eating better, but still losing weight and just laying there with his eyes open. When I saw him eating more, I got hopeful. Now, not so much. I don't want to lose my kids. I just want them comfortable.

I'm sorry. We have been sending good thoughts for Perry and really cheering for him. They are lucky to have you.
