I would get a new vet asp that is just rediculous, and considering that there are risks with that as well..good grief your poooor pup. When they stitched up Bronki's face after being bit by his uncle they gave him a drug that paralyzed him..i held him the whole time and i am not sure he didn't feel every bit of it. The vet told me i better get away from him when it wore off because they bite..and i told him Bronki would not ever bite me..he said once again THEY ALL BITE..and it really makes me wonder why..I cradled his big head in my lap and of course he did not. I'd bite too if i felt every one of those stitches being put in. We didn't go to that vet again. Sorry for you pup that is just rotten.
Mr.Shaffer looked at my mom with love eyes when she went down the hall yesterday..i saw it and felt warm all over...he looks for Hyia when she gets off the bus now and if she leaves the room..mom says he is sneaking in there at night..but at least he is clean (horrrraaayyyyy) i will continue on with our Sat night baths..Go SHaffer!
He is being a bit cross with old Trudy dog and he must not do that at all. Trudy is almost archival and she does get special food and a bit of special treatment. He and i will have to "talk" about that.

I didn't know your mom already had a dog. Yeah you better have a talk with him about being a sweet boy to poor old Trudy, she doesn't need that to deal with, (Trudy or your mom) I bet Hyia just adores him, so he sleeps in her room now? Carey was very drunk and sick after coming home from the vet that day, it was just very unneccesary (sp) They back my mom's dog into a corner to give her a shot, It's just silly, he doesn't even try to make up to them.They told me they would try not to sedate her to do rabies shot, but I know they didn't . He also told me I couldn't be in the room when we put Smokey down, so I took him to another vet. They were very compassionate there, so thinking that may be new vet. Will have to decide soon Carey is out of heartworm meds.

Having Bronki put down was more painful than all the injury and surgery i have been thru in my life..i still cannot think of that day without hot tears stinging my eyes..Like now..dang it..being there and holding him meant everything to me.I was there when he was born..helped open his little sac and saw him take his first breath..no way would i not be there for his last...tears tears..i am glad you went to another vet. The first one probably just didn't want to deal with the emotions of the people during the "procedure" and that is just wrong in every direction. The vet that put bronki down had to do the exact same thing to his own labrador the month before, and she was only five. He let me hold him and talk to him.gave me as long as i needed and did not insert the needle until i said so.. i felt as if my heart was ripped right out of me. They put all 80 lbs of his body in a box with a very nice blanket and took him out a side entrance so i didn't have to face the people in the waiting room. I didn't know we were going to do this when i went in..part of me was terribly afraid it might be cancer..when he coughed blood up on the carpet i think i knew at that time..but they had treated it as a respitory infection so i kept telling myself when we went it that we would just get more antibiotics. I could have taken him home for awhile, but he was already in pain from the tumor in his throat..and he was so very tired..while we waited for our appointment i took him to McDonalds and bought him an icecream..if i had known i would have bought him all the hamburgers in the world. Driving home alone..without his chin resting on my shoulder had me howling in grief..it was a very long drive too. That vet was a very good man..and i trusted him wholey with the only man in my life that treated me right. He deserved to die with dignity..in the arms of the woman that loved him most.
There is a vet i know that is a neighbor to my mom..i would not go to him if he offered his services free..he let his own dog grow without ever checking the collar.it was embedded and had to be cut out. Just because they passed the test doesn't mean they shoud be in practice.

Know exactly how you feel, there was no way I wasn't gonna be with him. I had a nice long talk with him beforehand to tell him what was gonna happen and why I was doing it. I swang him in the swing (something we always used to do). I held him, then they took him while they put the needle in b/c he struggled and the lady held him very gently as I talked to him and petted him. They left me and James (he drove me b/c was afraid I couldn't) in the room for as long as we needed and let us out a side door too. I held him wrapped in a blanket on the ride home and we buried him in my mama's back yard, his first home. I was everything to him, and he was my baby for so long. I grew up with him. I know he still comes around to check on me (he used to tell me when it was time for bed jumping up on the couch, putting his paws on the edge b/c he wasn't allowed on furniture and running to my room and back, until I would go to bed) I know Bronki looks out for you too.
