I am taking Mittens to a different vet today. I took her to her regular vet last Monday for tummy troubles, again. Sadly, the vet never got back to me, after giving me two different types of medicine. Tuesday, over a week later, and three tries to get her to call me, I
decided to have all her records sent to a different clinic, hoping I can find a compassionate person. She is on two different medication right now, lactulose and cisapride, to try and get things moving in her intestines. An x-ray was taken, also, and that was sent on a CD over to the new clinic. Update to follow later.
UPDATE.....We are home!
I just got back from the vet. I am so happy with them. Dr. Vogel, who has 5 cats of his own, pulled her to him on the examining table, sat down and she buried herself in his arms. He put his head into her fur, much like we would do. Her temp, which wasn't taken at the other clinic, was normal, her heart is fine. He said to keep on with the meds, but explained in full about how they work and also said I could use mineral oil and pumpkin. The lactulose, which I got another supply of, was 1/5 the price, the office visit was $8.00 less. He said he would call in a week, if I had ANY concerns, to call, he would get back to me the same day. He said she will probably have to be on meds all the time, to stimulate the colon. She is hiding behind the chair, glad to be back in familiar territory, and waves a paw to all her furriends.
