Sorry so long to get back to you . I've got tons of mails in my box that have to be addressed as I use this for work too !
I'm so sorry about your kitty , WHAT A NIGHTMARE !
Some so called "Vets" are just Medical school flunkies that opted out , ya know ? Not to say that being a GOOD Vet doesn't take a hell of a long time to accomplish . But , I've serious doubts about some . That's why I use several , if I don't get immediate attention or any kind of compassion at least , I drop that Vet , STAT !
The one I used was NOt my usual VET , he was one that would take Bentley straight away.....NEVER AGAIN ! I went back to my old Vet. even though he's a drive away.........and it was worth it !
You did all the right things , so don't feel as if you didn't . Some Vets are just "JERKS" for lack of a better term. They are in it for the $ and are not genuine , ya know ?
I had a lil kittie years back that I had checked by a Vet . ( The one I used to work for) because he was not relieving himself properly . This Vet said that he had an infection and took his temp. rectally . Next thing I know , about 2 days later , this kittie developed a HOLE on his left side . With a stentch you cannot imagine , so I took him back and HE ACCUSED ME of taking the cats temp and that I'd punctured his colon ! Needless to say , I was LIVID and told him that I had not done that and wouldn't b/c I was not trained for that at that particular time......He insisited that I did !
Well , the kittie died a horrible death and I know that that vet killed him !!!!!
So , I can totally relate to your feelings . There is really nothing you can do as far as proving that this Vet. killed you're kittie . Unless you can get another Vet. to back you , and that's not to likely as Dr.s DO NOT like to go against one another and that's in ALL fields !
Know that your kittie knew that you did all you could , loved you and it was left in Gods hands . That's ALL we can do really . I know it's easier said than done , but essentially , that's all their really is . I wish I could say more to comfort you , Hell , I still feel guilty for not being there when Maryann got hit by a car . It was her time and we cannot judge that . We just have to grieve and get on with it , as hard as it is.......I'm living proof.....I still cry for my Maryann , but she's in Gods hands and is well .
Crap , I'm crying now , I gotta get off this subject........
