Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi Doc, I want to be realistic about her prognosis based on facts from a real vet. I don't exactly have much confidence in the shelter. 1) they told me she was a collie- she is a Pointer, 2) they sent her home with me 6 mos old- and said that she was a little lethargic because of Kennel Cough- misdiagnosed - got worse- turned out it was pneumonia- lead to partially collapsed lung after 1 month of her hospitalization and final appropriate diagnosis, 3) they told me that her partially collapsed lung (x-rays showing no change) that she should be euthansized without even running tests or treating her when I brought her in, 4) they explained that that they are just a Non-Profit Shelter and that is the extent of their medical care (giving her antibiotics). If based on the information stated, I would just need to hear it from anyone but them. They told me that she probably wouldn't even make it through the anesthesia to put the oxygen tube in her nose, but she did! I just need to hear it from a more credible source other than this shelter.
