Unhappy Get another vet fast, HOLISTIC PREFERRED

Too many operations, too many meds, And sounds like a very ignorant or uncaring greedy vet!! How much can that poor pup take---I feel so bad for it! And how dare they operate (on the other eye) without your permission!:sad:
I hope you are trying to boost her immune system through very good nutrition and needs probiotics because of all the d--n meds--prob. needs Vitamin b, c, etc.

I agree it is time to get your pup away from that vet and to a new one. Something sure isn't right. Doing the spay and the cherry eye at the same time is fine but he should have called you about the second eye. How old was the pup when she was spayed? Infections can occur from a spay but to the point where she had to be opened right up again and that there was dead tissue makes me quite concerned. I know things can happen but something just doesn't feel right about this vet.

Like Jim said if you can let us know the city your in someone may be able to recomend a good vet to go to.

Hugs and kisses to your little one.

Just so we're clear...

Your dog had an eye infection in one eye, was surgically treated for Cherry Eye in both eye and was spayed. Correct?

Your Vet may or may not have done a good job but that's not the most important issue. Your dog isn't well. Given that it's a puppy there may be a few things going on. Vaccinations? Exposure to other any other puppies?

Most importantly, has she been tested for MRSA?

Please do so before you go to another Vet.
