    Yes take temp or have someone else take her temp if you can't be there. She sounds like she has a fever. Any swelling anywhere? Where are you located?

    A T4 and a free T4 are two different tests/levels. If the vet only ran a T4 I would want a free T4 done. I'd also recheck the glucose levels.

    That totally sucks. So sorry for your friend.

    If she finds a cheaper place for herself might she be able to afford board for the horses? Sometimes places will do reduced board for wee minis. ...

    It's tempting to say, "A day in life of a 4 year old" but I don't think a couple hard bucks when getting on is a typical greenbean 4 year old problem. I'm sure it happens SOMETIMES but not a typical...

    She had zero experience with litter boxes and did not know what they were for. She would go in my potted plants instead....

    Oh dear.

    10 years ago, last time I worked at a vet's, there was no way to tell if the cat tests FIV positive because of vaccine or because of infection. The FIV vaccine is RARE. Most vets do...

    I knew a horse that would stand in the middle of a small pond in the pasture up to his belly while his owner stood at the edge mumbling four letter words.
