Nici went downhill last night. Ashley called Dani while she (Dani) was in bed sleeping...so she did not get the call. Ashley was upset when Dani had called her back, but did not say much...she said she would tell her more tomorrow when things were finalized. Dani called me...told me this. She then called Ashley back to try to get soem more info. All we really know is that Nicias is not doing well. They took him into the vet today becuase he was going downhill (not sure on any specifics of this-not sure what vet or if he is still at the vet). Nici is supposed to be watched over to see how he does through the night and if prognosis is not good, Nici may have to be put down. I do not know anything more than this really.

The E vet said they were going to give him meds...which they sent him mone with nothing for the infection after they said they were going to. Ashley had to go to her regular vet the next day for antibiotics. The E vet said also that he could not be given any antibiotic becuase it would OD him, although there were no meds on his invoice...no charges...no explanation as to what was given...they better hope Nici is ok...otherwise I am urging Ashley and Dani to look into the legal aspects. Not giving antibiotic to someone that sick is hazardous to their health and if Nici is not ok...I feel it ultimitely is neglect on thier part...they said they were giving antibiotic to take home...they did not...and told her she could not give ammoxicillin as it would OD him but gave no explanation and no notations/charges on the bill.

There are several things wriiten in the statement overview that went home with Nici that are contradictory such as they said he was ready to go home the night they picked him up...but on the paper it says that it was reccomended that he stay overnight but owners insited to pick him up anyways which WAS NOT the case. We are not very happy with this vet right now. I know they have helped Lan, Brenda's boy...but they definitely did not help in this case...only buy time and make Nici miserable.

Pray for him that he will be ok and make it through this!

Well.. I guess Ashley is going to have him put to sleep tonight.

Every time she tries to tell me what happened, someone interrupts her so I'm supposed to get a call back.

Dani is at work...I do not have Ashley's # and she does not have internet...so an update will be posted either if Dani or Ashley happen to call me...or when Dani is done with work. It generally only takes her a few hours at work...

Brenda...not your fault...we know DR Bush helped Lan greatly...twice. Not sure what the deal is this time...but despite the fact they said in the paperwork that was sent homethey have had no previouls experience like this they SHOULD HAVE sent antibiotics home with him...no iffs ands or butts!!!

I am hoping it does not come down to putting him down...I do not know a lot about it...but she loves him so dearly and has invested so much into him to just become gliderless due to the vets negligence. I feel they should be responsible for his vet bills (all of them!) and what she paid for him plus pain and suffereing. This outrages me and makes me sick that she barely got to know him and this is what it comes down to...juts sick. She rescued him to give him a better life. She paid good money to rescue him at that...and barely got to know her little man that she is comepletly devoted to and loves.

Nicias is no longer with us. He swelled up again and there was nothing that could be done. He tried so hard to go potty after he swelled up...and with pushing so hard he turned his entire cloacal area inside out...the pressue of it all caused bleeding. He was rushed to the vet (NOT THE E vet!), but they said there was nothing that could be done to help him or save him. They could not get his insides right again and they would not go back. She was left with no choice but to take him home and let him suffer or to put him down. She chose the more humane route and put her little boy to bed for his final nap so he has to feel no more pain.

She just got this little guy at the beginning of the month. She neutered him so he could get a friend. He was a very lonely little guy...purchased from a CraigsList ad. The guy who had him did not take good care of him. Nicias was three years old and had three very sad and lonely years with his previouls owner. He loved his new mommmy so dearly! Every time she would pass by the cage...he would be right there to greet her and say hello to his new mommy that he loved so much. He did not crab or bite...was very frisky and playful...liked to cause mischief and nibble on people.

Nicias will be missed and heavilly grieved.

Now it will be up to us to fight for what is right and get his expenses covered. The vet was negligent and this should not have turned into this horror story it became. Anyone with input or experience...please PM Squeaky or me.
