God bless each one of you sweet people who took the time to send a prayer Squeaky's way!
My regular vet, whom I had made the appointment with originally, was slammed this afternoon so they had called me to see if I could wait until tomorrow. I said no I couldn't, so they informed me I would have to pay double the usual fee as I would have to come in after 4pm. and that would classify as an "urgent" visit!
I won't go into any details other than to say I ended up going to another vet I had never seen before but they were kind enough to squeeze Squeaky in right away!
Dr. Karen was wonderful and gave Squeaky a good once over and told me that yes she had a temperature, but was not dehydrated (good news). So she classed it as an infection of unknown origin and Squeaky was given 2 injections (metacam and baytril) and I brought home liquid antibiotic for her to take this week.
To say I was relieved is an understatement! She is such an old girl and had such a hard life prior to arriving at my door and it would have broken my heart to lose her so soon.
She does need extensive dental work and that will have to be taken care of soon but for today, by the grace of God and thanks to your prayers, she is going to be fine!
Total cost $63!!! I was amazed it was so low! So I had another blessing in that my bank account wasn't depleted.
So thank you all once again for your kindness in taking the time to offer a prayer for Squeaky. Those prayers were appreciated more than you know!
Love to all....
Tina and Squeaky xo
