If a tech made such a stupid mistake they'd get fired.
Shit!!! Now I'm crying over Rowan all over again... poor Rowan, he tried to save the other pigs by giving them a diagnosis.
What about Phyllis's lumps? Did those at least get a culture done? Please say yes! Please say they were that incredibly stupid that they didn't send off those either!
Hang in there, Charybdis! It's not your fault that the vet made this major and stupid error!
<still shaking my head in disbelief over the stupidity of the vet>
I know this is none of my business, but maybe it is time to find another vet. There must be some generous vets out there who would be willing to donate some of their time to help the rescue and who would also be willing to sell meds at cost, perform medical procedures at a very reduced rate, etc. ! (I understand that they have expenses, too, but money isn't everything!)
