    Default Being a Bully in North Carolina

    My name is Mike. I am the proud new owner of a sweet fawn baby girl named "Rousey". Rousey came to us by way of Miami, FL. Unfortunately, Rousey has been sick since the first day she arrived. She is 13 weeks old and we are on our 4th week of ownership. Due to a case of pneumonia she had to be admitted to the hospital yesterday. They have drawn fluid from her lung as well as her nasal area to test. She is currently receiving fluids and antibiotics through IV. She has been isolated in an oxygen cubby. I went to see her on my lunch break today. Poor baby, all I could do was look at her and talk to her through the glass. I pray she gets better. She is so precious and has stolen mine and my wife's hearts.

    Not exactly what I was expecting when she arrived but we are trying to get her the best care possible.

    wow, sorry to hear this. If it help's, we have schnauzer that we almost lost as well as a baby due to Pneumonia as well. He pulled through and a stronger (I believe) bond/love was created.
    Good luck, think positive.

    Hi Mike, so sorry to hear about your baby. I am sending lots of prayers & hugs. My Tyson was also in an oxygen chamber for over a week - its so heartbreaking to see. Keep us posted on her progress, we all want that sweet girl to pull through this! Thank you for giving her the best care!

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Welcome to EBN @Bowden and Rousie! I know how you feel, Murray was from a breeder in Dallas Texas and had kennel cough that developed into pneumonia only a few days after he came to live with us in NY. It was a rough couple of weeks and heartbreaking to see him sick but he did pull through and 6 months later you'd never know it would happen. I'm sure Rousie is a fighter and hope wil be home with you soon! Keep us posted

    She is so cute! Our Buster caught pneumonia about a week after he came home and went though months of months of treatments and medications and was completely cured. He hasn't shown any real long term effects which is really great being the condition he was in. I hope and pray that everything works out for her and she is totally cured. Welcome to EBN, happy you found us.

    Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. We were able to pick Rousey up from the hospital yesterday. It is going to take some time for her to get completely better but we seem to be on the right track.

    I have to say regarding the vet hospital: We were given a low and high estimate of costs associated with the different possibilities of her treatment. I paid 75% of the high estimate the day we dropped her off which was like $2,200 some odd. The high end total was just over $2,900. When we arrived to pick her up they said the balance was $900 some odd. I was like WHAT? That would be like us paying over $3,000 and she didn't stay anywhere near the amount of time that was included in the high estimate. They said that there were items left off of the estimate to which I replied that the doctor stated all of the items you are referring to saying they would be done with the estimates we received. The estimate stated low end 3 days of hospitalization and high end 9 days hospitalization. When I called them today to have someone explain the charges they stated a day is actually considered 8 hours. To which I said and how am I supposed to assume that if it a day in my world is 24 hours a day in your is 8? They said well she did not explain that very well. HELLO!!! something is wrong with this picture.
