I brought my dog into the Vet friday because she was not acting her normal self, i have had for 12 years and i love her to death she is a big part of the family, the vet took tests and notice lot of fluid in her abdominal area, and now she is in the hospital and her body keeps swelling, i dont know what is going on, iam freaking out i havent eaten since friday, i cant function without her, she is like a child to me, she means the world to me, i have two days to pay them and iam going to but they wont tell me any up dates or whats gonna happen, she hasnt moved around since friday and she has never ever bitten or tried to bite anyone at all she is only a chiuaua and the best dog i have ever had, i dont know what to do, no one will tell me what it could be, im afraid to prepare for the worst.. I have no one i can turn to to talk to, my boyfriend doesnt want to hear it. so im bottling it up and im really loosing it..
I am sorry to hear about your family. some people don't realize how much a pet can mean to a person. I understand what you are going through. I would demand answers. they have to give you something since this is your baby. Good luck and I hope your baby will be ok. Eat something because it's going to do you no good if your not healthy too.
Chiauauas! we have one! you know when there gums go grey that giving them a tiny bit of HONEY till there guns go back pink can save them from death.
you should be able to pick up when your dog isnt ok
and check their gums
the breeder gave us this tip
and it helped once
also you shouldnt feed chiauauas food that isnt suited to there diet even tho they give you the cutest look!
If no one will give you information, then you need to use a different vet. That's just terrible.
There are also plenty of veterinary offices that take payment plans. Granted, most of them don't, but quite a few do. I drive a half-hour to my vet just because she takes payments for up to 6 months.
Also, 12 is fairly old for a dog. That would be about the equivalent to a human in their 70s. Yes, plenty of dogs live longer than that, but your expectations should be significantly lower for a dog that's severely ill than a dog only a few years old.
