I am watching my 8yr old dog Oliver wither away. Very healthy dog for the 7.5 yrs. in our family. Took to vet for yearly check up Oct. 23 2019. Needed Vacc. shots. Got 4, including the rabies. 11/7/2019 took Oliver to the ER hospital because he could not move. Diagnosis ; immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. Four rx pills for four days were given. Since 11/9/2019 I have been cooking chicken strips, scrambled eggs, honey, a bit of water mixed with a cup of the Taste of the Wild food. (the only dog food brand Oliver has had) I do this 3x's a day. Oliver continues to be alert, excited when he hears the pop of the tupperware. He walks, drinks 4x's as much since the ER visit. We do not believe this will heal Oliver, but in my mind, food for my wife's Knight that he is during his last days.
I called a lawyer, first time in my life, I was told the courts treat pets as property. So the only chance we have is proving negligence. My "Vet" (same one for Olivers life) told us of no possibilities of a reaction of any kind. I am furious! I want to stand outside the "Vets" office holding a sign, This "Vet" killed Oliver. If money was no problem I would take that small chance in court. If nothing else, to tell the neighborhood all about the carelessness of "Vets" these days.
We will not pursue the only treatment for Oliver because of what it will not do. Heal !
When will the wealthy Americans take issues like this thru the courts and get new legislation passed for our pets?
Its only been one day with out meds. We have had time to say good bye. A 47yr. old man can cry after all.
When Ollie no longer has the desire to eat, it will be time for the "shot" of freeing his spirit. His coffin is ready. May it stay empty for another 7 years. Oliver's only chance is in Gods hands.
