Same Post as on Beaus Blog, takeing a couple days off.

Mama Here with an update. I spent the whole morning, on phone and in car trying to find a vet to see Beau. His vet is booked to Thursday. We have been considering finding a new one. We decide to try today 

Out of 13 vet offices within 6 minutes of our house, no one could see him today. 2 of the six are walkin clinics, having appointments every day but 3 weeks out for that and walkin means sitting in car and waiting until they can fit you in. One said maybe 3 hours to come back in the afternoon and see if it was better and the other said come down, call us, we will come fill out paperwork at yur car and call you when we can fit you in.

We drove in and there were 6 cars waiting we made 7, 4 cars had dogs waiting before us. I called and she said we will come out soon to fill out forms and I will put you on the walk in list. I said i filled the forms on line and brought them with me. She said Great I will be right there to get them. ONE hour later, no sign of her and only 2 dogs had come out in one hour. 

I called her and said we were leaving and she said I am sorry, you ARE on the waiting list, We left. went to another walk in, there was no room in the parking lot, and I went in and there were 17 people smashed together i chairs like sardine in a can. 17 dogs waiting.. We left.

SO we will wait and see... Beau is in no pain unless he bends down to the right towards the floor. He is suffering because he can't pick up his beloved ball, but is in no pain. eats and does all things from walk to poop and pee and sleeps most of the time. It breaks my heart over that silly ball. we will figure he is healed when he doesn't yelp. even though he knows it will hurt he has twice tried to pick it up.

I will not be posting or emailing or doing much tomorrow unless their is an update. My brain doesn't function when my baby is  not well.

He may have just pulled a muscle, I'm in the habit of doing that, lol
I dread having to take our cats to the vets at the moment as they will not let you go in with them and I know how frightened our cats are at the vets. Fingers crossed that Beau will be okay in a couple of days. I know what a worry it is for you.

I responded on Beau's blog. Don't even think about regular blogging or visits but please give us a quick update when you can. Big hugs to all of you!

I'm just hoping you can still get a vet appointment. Maybe the Thursday one, better than nothing.

We were just thinking, maybe try an ice compress on the area for five minutes on and off, or even some warm heat. One or the other might help.

Oh dear! I hope it's nothing serious. Thoughts of all kinds of healing vibes for sweet Beau. Give him a gentle pat from me.

Forgot to say on mommie's blog (that) I LOVE her cartoons. Move over Marmaduke, you could have a future in the comic books!

PS...I read on Beau's blog that he dropped food? Maybe an abcessed tooth?

While I, The Tigger, don't relish vet visits I have come to realize they generally coincide with me feeling at my lowest and most vulnerable. Humans don't seem to be able to make appointments for those times days or weeks in advance; I just get packaged and delivered to said vet when they notice I'm 'off-colour'. They are fortunate that everywhere we have lived that has meant walkin service and being seen far too quickly for my preferences. F says your experience should be telling new vets there is more demand than supply, and places to set up new business.

I'm so sorry! Take care.

I am sorry, sending prayers for you all. I know how upsetting it is when our furbabies are not feeling well. I hope Beau recovers and is back to his normal ball playing self.
HUGS, take care!!

Sending prayers here too. Poor baby! Trying to get an appointment sounded a bit of a nightmare, I hope you get him seen soon.

OMG! Sandra, I am so sorry to hear that he is not well let alone you couldn't get in to a Vet!! I guess with millions of seniors, there are lots of people who have dogs. Take care of yourself, Bob and your handsome boy!!..jp
