Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
From the sound of it, your vet performed blood work on the initial visit which is precisely what should have been done. He also treated her symptomatically until the results were available. If anything, I would recommend finding a vet that can run blood work at the time of the exam. Had your vet had the results the same hour the blood work was run, she would have received treatment faster. I think that's the biggest slow-down involved in her care. Dogs with spinal injuries are, in general, more sensitive overall. What she eats will certainly be more reflective on a pancreatitis diagnosis than would be a spinal injury. I would not necessarily leave this vet's practice, but I would look for somewhere that offers blood work results same-day for when a pet is very ill.
