Title: I SWEAR I'm cursed...
Post by: Ks_Sniper on September 07, 2010, 03:47:18 PM
So my 9mo old pit, Dizzie got sick after we went to the lake on Saturday. It was pretty hot so I figured it was just that and after hydrating and resting, she'd be fine. Well, this morning I had a feelin in my gut & started researching her symptoms... It's Parvo... Can't afford the vet & I put off getting the pet health insurance too long.

Not lookin too good for her. She sleeps all the time and stands over her water bowl for a half hour at a time before taking a little drink. I've ordered some stuff that I've heard may very well help, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I swear to God... if she dies, I'm gonna go on a stray killin spree. There's loose running pets all over this place. I'll trap the little buggers, take em out to the dessert, and put a bullet in 'em.

Hate to hear that man.  :'(  Bite the bullet and take her to the vet.  She's no less important than a member of the family is she?  Most vets will work with you on payments on something big like that.  O0

I wish that were the case, BC. I called several vets in the area & they all said the same thing. Payment due immediately. They have a special credit card for that stuff, but I'm in no shape to get it.

After my other dog, Jasper was hit by that car, I found out later that the vet COULD have saved him, but wouldn't because I didn't have the $4K for the operation. I'm keepin her hydrated for now & will be getting some homeopathic stuff that should help, but regardless of what happens, I'm thinkin about staging a mass abduction of the strays anyways. If my dog got it from one of them, somebody else's will too. :knuppel2

I'm really sorry I hope everything works out ok. Maybe someone will take partial payment up front. I know all too well about the credit crunch, with the economy like it is I would think they could find some way to work with you.

yhay just plain sucks there ks, our vets tried that around here, and thier business dropped off real bad now they treat and dont worry we will bill you is all is heard, and depending on the treatments you may not even see a bill from them. i got a letter in the mail about 3-4 months ago from a vet i took the dawg to like 3 yrs ago, it was a check from the visit i had over paid them, ready the check was for 0.03 and yep there was a 42 cent stamp on the front too!!!

That's a real bummer, Ks!  :'( Maybe you can find one of those small time country vets that will take payments.
Yeah on shooting those strays! I have had to shoot numerous ones and they still keep showing up.  :tickedoff There are so many still being dumped.  :tickedoff Many turn wild with no chance of catching and usually are chasing game. That leaves only one solution.

I shot one that snarled at me when I tried to run him out of my garbage can.  The local dog catcher wasn't helpful and ignored my complaints about the stray. The .44 Mag slug in his head cured the problem.

Bud, I have lost several dogs to that and it costs to try to save em. And if you do they may not be the same. I had one that was saved and wound up having to put it down anyway! damn cats, I say kill em all!!! Thats what starts the decease and you cant do much to stop it. I have to spray my yard with bleach and kill every cat I can! I know there are some breeds suseptable to getting that parvo easy, one is syberian huskey's thats what I had for a few years til I got sick of them dieing from that! Vaccene or not it happens. KILL THE CATS!!!!!! :knuppel2 :knuppel2

Dang I feel bad for you!! Parvo is dang hard to overcome. When is the last time she had shots? There is nothing like losing a dog. I have lost a few and not a one of them is easy to take to this day

Hate to hear that Ks.  :'(  Get a .22 revolver (or a single shot rifle) and some CB ammo.  :wink:  That'll thin down the strays.  And just remember the "3S's" -- Shoot, Shovel, Shut up.  O0
