    A dog with a bite history, for any reason, is not welcome in my home. The legalities can get real ugly if a second bite occurs.
  2. I'm really sorry you are having to deal with...

    I'm really sorry you are having to deal with this. It is incredibly rare for a young cat/kitten to be experiencing such severe symptoms.
    No doubt your stress levels are high. This is a hard road. ...

    A veterinarian is obligated by law to have a current patient/client relationship before administering treatment, vaccinations, or medications.
  5. I would not be patient enough for a 10 day wait....

    I would not be patient enough for a 10 day wait. But I do understand that my vets are busy and barn calls are exhaustive on their schedule. I'm a good client, but I'm not the only one.
    So, there...

    It's actually commonplace, just not typical for it to be itemized out. Normally just rolled into the cost of said dispensed prescription.
    Your vet has chosen to itemize.
    Hope your horse feels...

    Tough call indeed. It seems like the op is trying. There are no absolutes in a situation like this. Some people have endless resources, some have the patience of saints (or insane nerves of steel)....

    Geez Betty, I'm sorry. Just all around.
    I'm fortunate (to some degree), that mine was not a purchased horse. Pitifully enough, one I raised actually.
    Never, in a million years did I think it would...

    I have been in this situation. Hindsight is 20/20. Most horse people will go the distance and that extra mile.

    Sometimes, our internal dialogue tells us what we need to know.
    A question I...

    Awww Bluey...you are being much too hard on yourself. This scenario is simply a straight forward example of one pet owner not being responsible and certainly not respectful of others. Made worse by...

    Google any medication and you will come up with horror stories.
    All meds have their use and restrictions.

    Not a dex side effect, and a true reaction (to this drug) is unlikely. What you are seeing is probably less than what it would have been had the dexamethasone not been administered.

    I'm not far from you. Here, it's coastal or alfalfa. We can both affirm that other reasonable options simply aren't present.
    Coastal, is the native grass. It's what the hay farmers grow. It's what...

    The life of outdoor cats is hazardous. For those living in rural settings, I give more liberty. However, feral or indoor/outdoor cats in residential areas are a nuisance, at best.

    I love cats....

    If she is not controlled out in pasture with dex and ventipulmin, I would be inclined to think she has "summer pasture rao".
    Very common down here in the south. Getting them off pasture is key,...

    That would be a complicating factor.
    When my mare had the procedure done, a 3 Meter scope was used..but it had the capability to thread a biopsy grabber through the scope.

    Op, if you have a university nearby consider asking your vet to discuss "the best bang for your buck".
    Having been down this road, I was told (by university specialists) that duodenal biopsies were...

    Get some Feliway plug ins. Put one in any room the cats occupy.
    I had the same scenario...Put those suckers in the wall and they got all Zen.

    Some cats seem to get a lot out of the feliway, when...

    I don't see any glaring discrepancies on the bill. It may be a generalization, with them saying you should expect to pay about $500 per day with hospitalization. A ballpark reference.
    As it seems,...

    Small intestine inflammation is hallmark for IBD. Was the inflammation focal or diffuse?
    Did anyone suggests taking duodenal biopsies via scoping? Very non-invasive and could lend good information....

    Interesting to hear others say their neck afflicted horses were itchy. Mine was too.

    Ok. So, anhydrosis is best managed by trying to prohibit the symptoms. Down here in the south, many are fairly versed in how to get one jump started but it can be challenging.
    First, it's not just...

    Neck.
    Get neck xrays. Wouldn't hurt to get back xrays too. If a bone scan is in the budget it could be a very helpful diagnostic tool.
    And, be careful.

    I took my horse to the university. Could...

    If it was important, a same day call would have been made to consult regarding the sedation/recovery, etc.
