Shadow is home yippee! And much more lively!
They weren't sure what she had... they said the blood tests showed that she was slightly anemic, but that could be the result of her not feeling good. And they figure that the fever was an allergic response to... something, they do not know what....
sigh, $271.00 for them to tell me they don't know what was wrong, but here are a few maybes. But at least they gave her antibiotics and she's getting better.
Hey, how much does pet insurance cost? And how much of those fees would it have covered? We're debating whether we should get pet insurance.
We just do not have that $271.00.
We had to put it on the credit card, sigh. Sorry, that was just more than I expected it to cost. I don't understand all their fees... they told us it would cost $5.00 to board her overnight if she didn't need the vet's attention, but $18.00 a night if the vet had to look at her. They decided the vet had to look at her, so they charged the $18.00 a night. But on top of that, they also charged $15.00 cuz the vet looked at her each of those nights... why charge extra???
Do not be mistaken, I am super happy Shadow is back and healing. That has me ecstatic. But that $271 has me depressed cuz we just cannot afford it (we just updated all our pets shots and bought a new puppy). Maybe my hubby can talk to them about the double charges (those are the ones that annoy me, the others are fine... ouchie, but fine).
Again, yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee my baby is back!! And she's walking around, checking things out. Full of life! I will try feeding her in a bit. They said she ate a lot earlier.
My mom said she noticed her still walking a little stiffly, so I will keep an eye on that. She has to see the vet again in one week.
