And what you need to take into consideration that the advice that has been given, ie CALL THE VET, is the only safe advice that we can give.
The frustrations that people are expressing are heartfelt and genuine, there aren't many of us that have perfect facilities, endless pots of money, or vast knowledge about all sorts of veterinary matters, BUT when it is an emergency we all want to help, and we all know that in this case two lioes are very much at risk, and it is the responsibility of the owner to do their best for these animals, and I'm sorry but asking an online forum about doage for a drug that isn't even best indicated in this situation well ...
*SIGH* head desk,
Yeah lets just blow pretty smoke and paint butterflies and pat the child on the head and say there there, because that will make it all better...
What happened to anyone taking responsibility for their choices?
What happened to telling the truth even if it is harsh?
When did we become entitled to put animals at risk because we don't plan ahead?
I've said before, it doesn't take pots of money, hell I was broker than broke when Ace colicked, I've never seen a colic before, but I know her well enough that I knew she was sick, I'd read enough that I was pretty sure it was colic, I know my vet well enough to phone him describe the symptoms, and he knew he needed to attend.
The cost, well we dealt with that afterwards, and since then I have sold a lot of stuff, including horses, because that was a huge wake up call for me, you never know what is going to happen.
