hello, i have a question that is really bugging me, and i really hope someone can help me. My kitty had kittens, she escaped before i could get her fixed, and surprise. well, the kittens were doing great before one started to get really skinny, it seemed to happen within two days. i did take the kitten to the vet, and i swear you could feel every bone, and the kitten had a hard time suckling. it was barely over two weeks. she just told me, oh, its just the runt, and she gave me some clavamox...the kitties temp was also around 95. i told her the other kittens are fat and this one was also, and it appeared to have some labored breathing. well, the kitten got worse and i was able to get it to another vet (just a few days later, by then it was refusing to eat and i had to slowly put drops in his mouth..) they put him in an incubator when he appeared to get better, but died. it turns out a tapeworm came out of his anus which turned out had been starving him to death. i am so mad, and i keep thinking if the other vet had given me something to kill the tapeworm, this life could have been saved. i do work at a big petstore, and plan to tell ppl about this place. they never even took a stool sample or nothing, and she seemed so unconcerned. before i get really mad i need to know how to handle this situation. i became really attatched to this kitten, i named braveheart, and to make matters worse, he died on my birthday. thanks...
