Just sick

I think we have to put Mr. Pibb down. I took him to our regular vet because we didn't trust the opinion we were given on what's wrong with him from the SPCA vet. Turns out he has a very low white blood cell count (around 1000), is septasemic, has bilateral pneumonia, and suspected parvo. The heartworm count in his blood is extremely high. We can hospitalize him there for an unknown length of time, with treatment around $100 a day, and if he responds to treatment, he would have a 50/50 shot of living.


The poor baby is so sweet, and it just sucks that this has to happen to him. I've got to go cry now as I pick him up from the vet and go to bitch out the SPCA. They have a $500 cap for treatment during the 14 day period after adoption. They need to treat this baby, give me my money back, do SOMETHING!!!!

I don't want him to suffer through all of this.

We had to have run across each other. I feel like I spent half of my day over there with Mr. Pibb from lunchtime until almost 3. I was in the back to hand him over, the middle to have the vet look over the records, and then in the available dogs section.

When I go in on Wednesday, I'll ask if you are around. I plan on looking on Wednesday and Friday in McKinney and maybe take a Wednesday or Thursday trip to the Dallas office. If not, I'll try to go to the offsite this Saturday at Collin Creek.
