Poor little Kompis spent
3 days & 2 nights in a
hospital on a feeding tube
and IV last week.
As many of you who are friends or follow our Facebook page know, my dog Kompis was very sick these last few weeks. That’s why this newsletter is late. She ended up being hospitalized for a few days. I was her 24 X 7 nurse for several days before and now almost a week since she got out, weaker than before she went in.
As usual, I’ve learned much from her, her struggle and her strength. I’ve also learned more about vets, and not much of it good. 🙁 After thousands of dollars, we still have no diagnosis. When I get through this, I plan to write a blog about our emergency vet services in the Bay Area. But, for now, all my energy must be on her healing, and she seems to be slowly & steadily on the mend.
So, in an effort to find some silver lining, I’ll pass on some things I’ve learned to you… As my tips this month are about taking care of a sick dog.
Here’s a brief blog & video that helps people understand the patience required to help a hurting pet. Even professionals like myself struggle, so don’t feel bad if it seems overwhelming to you!
