My 18 month old shih tzu, and my 5 month old yorkie suffered smoke inhalation due to a fire. Ems rescusitated both and provided oxygen.
They told me to rush to my vet. They were o.k. They need more oxygen and IV fluids. Bandfied ignored me.I yelled for help.
when thr vet came out he sent me to another vet. when he could have at least given oxygen and IV fluids to minimize damage.That small action would have flushed some carbon monoxide out of their system, rehydrating them.In a panic, I couldn't think, my apt has been burned, so I felt that I could trust the professional, I had to scream to get their attention, then he sent me to an emergency room several miles away. Meanwhile their respirations are compromised, he could've at least administered oxygen to comfort them. I'm a medical professional, but that day I was a parent of 2 who meant the world to me, so I figured, who'd be better than their vet to give them what they needed.
This complaining won't stop the aching that I feel at their lost. I'd rathered that they'd be stolen by someone else who'd adore them rather than yielding them to the very same folks who often raped my checking account promising heartfelt care.
