It's saturday and my cavy vet wasn't in. I called around and found a "Cavy Vet"
What a load of BULL!
First off he ripped a strip off me saying Elvis has massive mange! I tried to calmly tell him he was a Skinny pig and they are born that way. He grabs him by the scruff of the neck and sees his man parts. Says they are swollen??? No they aren't. He was mad cause he wasn't neutured?
He didn't notice the snotty nose he had or the fact he is sneezing.
So he tells me he has to trim teeth???? I'm like NNOOO his teeth are fine.
He listened to his chest and says he has a heart mur mur????? (Sp?)
So he says he wants to do injections???? I'm like at this point wanting to RUN!!!!!!
So he wanted to give Revolution 15 mg
Which i declined all! I read the Convenia is very bad!
Which i declined but quickly accepted the baytril 1.2 once a day. Does that sound right?
I been hand feeding and forcing feeding fluids although he is sort of eating. Not great.
I have a beanie I warmed up and put in cage with him. I also covered the cage so no one bugs him (Cats)
Any other ideas till I can get to my vet next week?
I am so furious they lied! And they treated him so poorly!
Gees what do you do when you need an emergency vet?????
I am still upset about this. I just give my head a shake and thank God that I read your web site. I would never have known anything without it.
Elvis seems to be more alert this morning. I see some little poops in the cage this morning :)
I can hardly wait to see my Vet!!!!!
I'm not sure i understand about the Baytril. The Concentration? All it says is 1.2 He weighs 700 grams right now but never is up to 800 grams. He's the slim Elvis :)
