    Default Green snot....not again! Ughhh off to the vet we go!

    My boor baby woke up this morning with a snotty nose (the goopy green kind). Ugh. I knew something was coming last night when I got home from work and he didn't go wiggle butt wild like normal and then he didn't want to take a walk with his puppy friend Watson. He had a runny nose for a few days, but it was clear and I thought maybe he had just a little cold, ya know a few sneezes, but still the same energetic bully.

    I felt so bad this morning that he sounds so congested. He had pneumonia when he was a tiny puppy...it started as a bad reaction to his kennel cough vaccine. Not to get on a rant but I had specifically requested injectable vaccines only and before I saw what was happening the vet had given him the intranasal gel... He has been so healthy ever since we got that mess cleared up and it just hurts my heart to see him looking sad and feeling icky.

    I called the vet first thing this morning hoping they would work us in early, I called at 7am and live 2 blocks away, but they told me they are booked up and offered me a Monday appointment. Uh, Monday? Yeah, no, I have an English bulldog with a likely respiratory infection...Monday doesn't cut it. So off to the backup vet, which means driving to Virginia from DC in tons of traffic, but the backup vet might soon become the primary vet...they're nicer and always work us in!!!!!

    @g8erjackie I hope your baby will be okay. Glad he is seeing the Dr. today. Waiting 'til monday would not have been good. I know the traffic-but you have done the right thing.

    I had to switch vets for a similar issue. I chose one that has a 24 hr emergency care unit with an onsite lab, just in case. Well worth it.
    Everyday I see an improvement. Everyday she respects and trusts me even more. I'm honored that she chose me...

    Hope your baby gets well soon, and it does sound like a vet change is in order. Too bad the good one is so far away. Give your baby a hug from us.

    Hope Ruckus is doing better.... how did the vet visit go? And, agree, sounds like back-up vet needs to be the primary vet

    -image-jpgI'm just reading this now, I'm so sorry Ruckus isn't feeling well. I hope it isn't anything serious, and the vet is able to give him meds to clear it up. I hope he feels better soon. Please keep us posted on what the vet said, and how Ruckus is doing.

    Update: We saw the backup vet and I've decided to drop our DC vet who just can't seem to be bothered. The backup vet who is now the primary vet has a 24 hour emergency center on site and they're just so much more accommodating.

    So the verdict is Ruckus has a mild respiratory infection. The vet said she didn't hear anything that would point to pneumonia or bronchitis. He has an antibiotic now and if he isn't better in a few days we'll go back for possible X-rays and a stronger antibiotic. I caught it early, so fingers crossed.

    Thanks for all the kind words for Ruckus! We appreciate it!
