when we went to the vet on friday, they sent us home with a couple of antibiotics (to be given over the weekend) and a bag of fluids (to be given till the bag is empty). we gave the antibiotics with no problem, and by "we" i mean hubby, but we had major problems with the fluids. i don't think we are equipped to do that one. saturday half way through the administration, bailey moved and the needle came out of her scruff so "we" had to reinsert it. ugh. sunday was worse. i got jabbed with the needle and the bag started leaking. it was one mishap after another. nope, we can't do this. we're going back today for another treatment, so i'll tell them this is way out of our ability and comfort level.
also during our visit to the vet, i told doc what a terror she is on the drive home. (he said it's a reaction to the treatments.) she's out of control and it's dangerous to drive home with her in that state. i've tried her car seat and i've tried putting her in her little carrier. neither worked. he said he would give her an additional tranquilizer to keep her calm until we got home. the next picture is of her with the sedative. i hate doping her up but i can't drive with her like that.
other than our fluid problems, we had a great weekend. bailey ate well and her energy level was back to normal. woohoo :)
until we meet again my friends, stay safe-
