|One of my best friend's dog has to be rushed in to the emergency vet. Her dog had diarrhea all day, and thinking it was just a stomach upset, she didn't really think anything of it.. Until she noticed blood starting to show up, and her dog beginning to get lethargic and refusing to eat or drink. She has gotten to the point where she is shivering, laying in her dog bed, refusing to get up and basically just leaking diarrhea onto her dog bed..
Her dog is a female Shepherd/Collie cross, three years old, and they live on a farm with the dogs having free roam outside with the other dogs.
There's so many things it could be.
Her fiance is refusing to pay for surgery saying "if it requires surgery, we're putting her down - vets just try to get money out of you and half the time the dog dies a month later." UH, NO JERKFACE. She's incredibly upset, obviously, has the opposite mindset of this and would do anything to save her dog.
Unfortunately, their two little boys have disabilities and if this goes $1000 , unless there are payment plans, they can't afford surgery to help the dog..
My friend is devastated.
When she tried to call ahead and take her dog into the only emergency Vet in town, she was told that the Vet was gone until morning! and that nothing could be done for her dog until morning and there are no others nearby. Her fiance is out of town for work, so she's relying on family for a ride in the morning.
Let's pray that Sierra lasts long enough, that it's not incredibly serious, that it's not surgical, and that she doesn't suffer in that time..
