I want to know if any of you have had the same problem with a specialist or even your vet never calling back!!!. Squeeker has been having seizures for almost a year now. We tried some medicines and when that did not work, we went and saw 1 of the 3 neurologists in town. It was working well for a while untill he started prescribing medicine that is way too expensive-we tried it for a while but it did not seem to help any. We went back to this neurologist and it became a "let's wait an see" game, but "please keep me updated." Yeah right-the jerk never calls you back when you need it. So we then tried another neurologist up at the veterinary teaching school-she even made fun of the 1st neurologist and understood our frustration with never callling back! Now we are going on week 4 of waiting for a reply from her-in the meantime Squeeker is continuing to have seizures and they are getting worse. It seems the only way to get an answer from them is to go, sit for hours on end waiting for an appointment and then forking over hundreds of dollars-which I would do if I weren't due to deliver my first baby any day now. Both had said that they would be happy to work with us over the phone-especially since I am a vet tech. I am frustrated at the lack of concern for the situation-seizures are not something to "wait and see" on and in the meantime poor Squeeker is the one who suffers. I have had him hospitalized in the last week for the seizures and am at a loss for what to do next-I would just like some answers, I hate to see him like this! I am trying the last neurologist on Monday, but she is not the best in town and she is also extremely expensive and somewhat rude to her clients, that is why she is my last resort, but if she has the same problem as the others she will probably not call back either-or want me to drive the 2 hours it takes to see her to the tune of $500 for and exam!!! I am willing to pay it if she has answers but once again I hate to travel too far away from home or our hopital!
