My poor Amberleah lou lou had blood work drawn yesterday in the neck area. They could not huge blood it would not clot. They said her vain was so thick they could not get needle in. Same thing happened at University hospital. My heart cry's for her she so traumatize. I am sure she hurts today. She went through so much yesterday coming out of sedation and they server reaction to Vit K shot.
I have talking to Christie ( Huly) and this is what she said and I agree. We want to know what you think?
You can post this on the main forum to get other opinions but I wanted to give it to you first.
I might sound crazy here but I honestly believe it is the right thing to do. I think the Vets are hurting Amberleah more than helping her. Can you stop all testing and keep her away from a Vet for 6 months to a year. (unless an ABSOLUTE emergency) I had the same situation with my old Vet and my cat Huly. They destroyed almost all of his immune system with antibiotics, stress, and other drugs and I was on the verge of losing him when I thought I was helping him.
Here is an example, my old vet was prescribing antibiotics for Huly monthly to the point his immune system was nothing but the antibiotics. The antibiotics killed all his natural immune fighting properties. It took us 6 months to undo what they did to him. A few years after of being healthy and holistic I was painting my basement a yellow stripe. Well Huly vomited yellow. Because it was Huly I went into panic mode and thought he got into paint as he also started having trouble with his back leg. I rushed him to the emergency vet clinic. I am not going to lie I had a chip on my shoulder walking in to that place from prior experiences but they were all I had. They took him in the back, well they pulled me in a room and brought him to me and told me my cat had a tumor (that was most likely cancer and would need his bottom jaw removed) (which he does have a small one on his gums that we are treating with Mitake mushrooms and it has not grown in over a year), a severe heart murmur, possibly a brain tumor, and most likely had a stroke. They gave me a list of things they wanted to do to him. I asked if his vitals were stable and they told me yes and they did not believe it was paint poison. I took my cat home without doing anything they wanted to do, stay up with him all night watching him, and had him to my holistic vet as soon as they opened. Huly does not have a heart murmur but possibly showed signs of a small one from the way they stressed him out, does not have any of the other things they said but had an upset tummy, vomited stomach acid and sprained his leg running down my stairs.
I say this for a few good reasons. Her little immune system is way too weak to handle a lot of the stress they are putting her through and is just going to cause more issues. Sedating a sick pup is to do something as simple as blood work has added more chemicals to a low immune system which will weaken it farther and added stress to her little body that she does not need. Then she had a major reaction to something they did which added stress. Also why did they go to her jugular? That might be why it did not clot proper as I have seen a lot of jugulars do this. Jugular is always last resort and mostly used in anemic animals where they have no other veins. Her body now has to put the extra energy to heal.
I honestly believe they are complicating everything and hurting Amberleah even more. Right now she needs to build her immune system and detox all of those chemicals from her body. Letís see if Kim can heal her through nutrition and supplements first as adding all the other drugs, test etc is not going to work with any holistic treatments. They just counteract each other. You are setting yourself up and Amberleah up to a lot of complications, and honestly wasting money on it. I learned my lesson the hard way as I almost lost my Huly and I do not want you to have to go through what I did. The heartache and guilt I still feel from knowing I said give him the vaccine and now he is FIV positive for life, and that I almost killed my own cat by going to the a Vet and giving him all the antibiotics I did. I made the decisions I bear the guilt but now I know Huly is on the right path and I have a clearer conscience knowing I am not hurting him.
