I'm still in emotional hell. A few hours he looks great, the next he looks like shit just laying on his dog bed and not really wanting to move. Back and forth, oi. He doesn't try to get up and follow me but if he is up he wanders around the house or follows me. He also gets damn near normal perky and other times looks depressed. Oi, Oi, Oi. The only reason I haven't taken to put him down is because he is better than yesterday and showing signs of wanting to do things. If it gets to the point where he doesn't... you know what I've decided to do.
I woke up to find him stuck in a laundry basket. Seriously. He was unable to get out of it, as it was right side up, and stressing out. I got him out and he appeared fine. A few hours later he started to have trouble walking and then began to behave abnormally. I rushed him to the Emergency Pet Clinic and lets just say I had an emotional hell. The pet clinic is much more expensive than Becker's, but Becker's been getting some heat and I don't want to go near there until they've long established themselves in more reputable terms. I had them do a blood work, even though I feel he aggravated his spine (he had an injury in March), because he's on medication that can over per-long use can cause his liver to fail. It came back just within the normal limits, which was surprising with how much he gets but he does take milk thistle to help his liver. A few things may 'possibly' indicate other diseases or cancers but they were low enough not to really draw flags. His kidneys were also doing fine, just a bit high on levels. He was dehydrated so they put him on fluids for 4 hours and gave him a steroid shot. If he does not do better I am frightened of what I might have to decide.
Seriously. It took them almost 2 weeks and me calling three times to get them to fax refills on lucky's meds. I was like finally!!!! Then I looked at the approved amount and I wonder... wtf.... He needs 60 pain pills, NOT 30!!!! He takes them twice a freaking day!! ARGH!!!!

I didn't discover this until after work and the vet closed by then.
On the cool news, I was able to attend the annual anime convention San-Japan (if for Sat only), and it was GREAT!!!
In other news, Lucky's claim was finally processed and I am being a sent a check next week for his vet costs from his spinal injury. What I am PISSED about it they knocked off about $20-40 because they found the charge 'essessive'. Like the freaking x-rays, $20 were knocked off. Argh!!! I was expecting a $400 and some check. I'm getting a $380 amount from nearly $700 worth of care. ARGH. I'm not happy.
I have a feeling I'll be sleeping in tomorrow, I've been up till 11pm this whole week waiting for stinker butt to eat so I could give him meds. oi.
On the good news Lucky's appetite appears to be back. And I never thought I'd be glad for this but I caught him trying to hump Yoko. LOL. Seems he's feeling better... >.> Silly old dog.

Am I going to have to switch vets that I use to order meds now?
I go there as is for single does of their heartworm and flea protects every month, I can't afford to get a six month pack for them right now. That's like... almost $60. Isn't my $60 to them that way enough? jeez. thanks dude.
Its just... so freaking annoying. If the meds weren't cheaper where I order them now I wouldn't be going it.
