good luck! do you have a back up for the $ if you can't get the CC?

i would also be sending that other Vet a letter or a visit and see what they say about the new review on Trillion, i would also be asking for some kind of refund or something since it does not seem like they treated him at all.
hope your getting him fixed up now the right way!

I agree with Jenn on this one. That other vet sounds like he blew you guys off when Trillion was in obvious agony. Make sure you document EVERYTHING and then go have a chat with this other vet.

Best of luck for you guys, and I hope now that you have some competent care Trillion heals quickly!

We asked family my parents are the ones who paid the 190. They gave us a 100 to start her emergency fund when we got her, so they did their share and currently don't have any money to spare, my boyfriends mom said we should not have gotten her in the first place....(she's not an animal person) so.. that's a no.


Sad we exsplained what happend they said they have one vet on staff and they're all over booked today but we got the first apointment for when they open up tomarrow.

No offense but your vet sucks! They should make time for such a serious painful injury. I guess you have to play nice to work out the payment plan but I would be in full on bitch mode if my vet brushed me off and Raven was in that much pain.

Keep her as immobile as possible and don't let her try to walk or get up at all. I hope everything works out for you and Trillion.

There is a local rescue here that has a vet on staff, and they take emergency cases immediately. They also work with the owners and set up payment plans for treatment. Do you know of any in your area that might do that?

+ 1. I know my vet would take my babies in a heart beat and treat them if it was this serious. I'd seriously give that vet a piece of my mind then start calling family and friends for another vet recommendation.

There isn't many vets around we went to the first one where we got crappy care. That was an hr and a half away the second one we went two was two hours.
Both highly recomended the second vet was nice they really did throughly check her out and were nice but unfortuneately working out a payment wasn't an option to us, they took us in right away even in front of their other cliets that were clearly waiting before us.

Her vets office is generaly nice and they work with us and give us free heartworm proventivite and stuff for fleas and are great, but they also are the only vet on the whole mountain area. So it gets packed.
However I agree they should have seen her right away because of the amount of pain she's in, but I am going to play nice that way we can proceed with a payment option.

We havnt let her do anything we bring her food and water to her level to where she's laying, we lift her out to go potty and we try to hold her up when she trys to go, we carry her to and from the car and all that she hasn't had to make any steps on her own really.
She's been laying in pain wimpering a lot today.

I feel like a bad mom cause I can't do anything but I'm doing the best I can she's still getting her tramadol but the vet we saw today said she should be on antiflamitorys as well. Bi hope tomarrow morning come fast and trillion sleeps most of the day/night .

On top of that she hasn't really botherd with food today.

Also small note she clocked in at 38.7 pounds today.
(Also the first doctor never weighed her for her meds he also never gave her a blood test to put her under which they're apairnetly supposed to do to check for complications)


Edit:
I put a little warm water and low sodium chicken broth in her food, she's now licking it hopefully she will have some soon

Don't beat yourself up. You are stuck in bad situation. Just keep her as comfortable as you can until you can get her to the vets. I was frustrated that your vet wasn't doing more to help, not at you. I am sorry if I made you upset.

If they are doing surgery it might be better if she doesn't eat.

Just hang in there we are all here for you.

We are all pulling for you and Trillon. In case you didn't get all the dosage info on Tramadol:

Tramadol (Ultram Rx) is a a pain relief medication that has similar effects to narcotics but is not actually a narcotic compound. It is useful in both dogs and cats for long term pain relief. This is a medication that can be used by veterinarians who are adverse to using controlled substances but who wish to provide some benefits associated with narcotics. The recommended dosage in dogs is 1 to 2mg/kg every 12 hours but doses up to 5mg/kg and dosing intervals as short as every 6 hours have been used when necessary in dogs without major reported adverse effects. In cats the recommended dosage is usually 1/4th of a 50mg tablet per cat every 12 hours.

Also failed to mention one of the side effects of Tramadol in dogs is whining. I think it can make them feel strange and anxious.

Just a suggestion, but I would invest in some puppy pads while she is immobile. I know that you don't want her to regress,but it would be much easier on her and you if she could use a puppy pad instead of going out.

That is simply my suggestion.

I'm hoping everything will be okay. You will be in my thoughts!

I'm sorry you're going through this Sad Is there any way you or your bf can apply for a credit card through your bank, or even walmart? they're usually pretty good about giving credit cards to younger people.

I'm keeping you and Trillion in my prayers.

I'm so sorry that this had to happen. No one ever plan's on or think's this sort of thing could happen to their dog. I've been in you're shoes and I truly feel for you. You're doing all you can do, which is wonderful. Keep up the good work and stay strong for Trillion, because she need's you now more than ever. Dog's can pick up when you're stressed/upset, so I'm sure that is bothering her as well, so stay strong.

I know times can be hard, so if money is an issue, I would be more than happy to donate to Trillion's vet cost. Let me know, PM me you're paypal if you have one and I'll try to help you out as much as I can. Just try not to stress too much and take care of that pretty girl.

Wow you guys are great, We're going to see if we can cover this ourselves first, we don't have much but we are going to try but thank you so much if it turns out to be something we can't afford or the down payment (since we are trying a payment plan) is too big ill let you guys know, but we have another 300 dollars now from my boyfriends mom who decided to help out hopefully the 400 is enough for a down payment and it's nothing too bad.
we are hoping just for them to pop her joint again and cast it,
but we are being realisitic about this.

Thank you all so much.


Also; Jennet&Embry i wasnt aware you can use a walmart credit card and use it at the vets.
ill deffeneantly look into that,
thanks again everyone
Trillion my boyfriend (duffy) and I can't thank you enough for being here for us.

Well just know that help is here if you need it. When I was 19 our Yorkie needed an emergency GI surgery and my fund's were low and if hadn't been for my mom I don't know what would have happened to him, so I know exactly what it feels like to be in a tight position. So, please don't hesitate to ask. On the other hand, I commend you for wanting to do this yourself. Smile
