I for one just hate the holidays this time of year. I don't know why society dictates that we have to buy everyone we k now a present whether they deserve it or not?? Well anyways - almost done with the shopping.
You know I have talked about Mandy a few times lately.
She is only about 9, don't know exactly cause I adopted her 8 years ago. She seems to be in pain and can't enjoy our walks any more. She lags behind and limps with her head down. She has a little cry-puss coming out of her eyes all the time that I have to wipe.
But the real reason why I thought that is because she has lost a lot of weight and won't eat hardly anything.
I am so sick of these stupid vets who don't really care about our furry girls, all they care about is how much money they charge you for stupid SHIT you can't afford and the dog never needed anyway.
I made an appointment for yesterday - Friday to get a blood test and exam done. You know I am working now so Hubby took her, which was a mistake cause they talked him into a bunch of crap. $300 later he comes home with some food that made her throw up last night in 2 big puddles that I had to get up and clean.
I was PISSED at Hubby and the vet. Hubby for being so gullible and the vet for not caring.
This morning the vet called and I chewed him out about the excess fees and said I wanted a refund on some (which he agreed to).
Anyway - I was right. Mandy has Kidney failure and I'm pretty sure NEVER arthritis. Remember all the money he made me pay for anesthesia and x-rays a little bit ago??
Then he said Mandy should come in and stay for 2 days with a IV (which he refused to tell me on the phone how much that would be), then another blood test for another $150. I said HELL NO, she will die before I pick her up being in a cage for 2 days alone and feeling so bad.
I should have known that it was kidney failure... Before I adopted Mandy I had the best dog in the whole word that died from kidney failure. I saw the same signs in Mandy but thought - SHE is just too young.
I feel that no matter what I do - I already knew she is dying and when they throw up like that, its too late already.
I am completely heartbroken, depressed, sad and just bad. Now that I am working, I am afraid that I will come home and Mandy will be dead and Peaches will be howling with grief.
I just got back from Sams club and brought a big pack of sliced turkey meat to give her. she ate a couple slices. I am just gonna try to make her comfy the best I can until she gets too weak.
For those of you that love your furry children the way I do - you know how my heart is breaking right now.
I am happy that I did rescue both my girls from being thrown out like a piece of trash. I know they have been happy for these 8 years and even though they can't talk people talk - they know how much I LOVE them.
Take care - have a Good Christmas and don't over eat.
