I took Owain (pdsa spelt his name wrong!!) to the emergency Saturday evening. myself and my Daughter was told by a young blonde haired vet that Owain was HEALTHY, he had FLU. was given penicillin tablets and eye cream. told not let him have anything eat for 24 hours. start tablets sunday evening. sadly Owain deteriated, Monday evening I phoned emergency , was told a vet would phone me? no one phoned. so phoned again. one hour later the Normacot vet phoned. I took Owain to the Normacot vet, who said Owain had been POISENED. bit of difference from FLU! kidneys failing.he was put on a drip, had blood tests. I left him over night. had to fetch him early next morning, take him to pdsa. which I find distressing. moving a poorly sick pet from a to b. that vet told me it did not look good. more blood tests. he was jaundice, one hour I was at the pdsa. signed the , put a pet down form. when I got home I got phone call to ask for permission to put Owain down. I did not want him to suffer. I phoned pdsa today to complain about the young vet who told me he had the flu. I was told a senior vet will phone me back? I had NO return phone call. the local paper phoned me last night.
