I got the disappointing news that Suzie needs to stay at the vet through Monday. Now this is getting really scary for me. The vet said she's not out of the woods yet and that she would do better in a quiet environment. She's eating well but her breathing is still somewhat labored.
Usually if I have a foster in the hospital I go visit them every day, but this vet's office isn't set up like that. We haven't seen Suzie since Thursday and I asked the vet if she seemed sad and he told me that's not what I needed to worry about. Sorry, but I think that should be included in my concerns about her! I get annoyed at vets very easily ... vet techs ... receptionists ... anyone who treats me or the dog like this is just a run of the mill ordinary situation for a run of the mill ordinary animal. I think vets who are the most appealing are the ones who don't lose their compassion and realize how huge this event might be to the person who is caring for this pet even though they may have seen it dozens of times.
