    I would be all over that vet. But for now it's having Abe getting healthy. Must be a way for him to see a vet. Craddle him in your arms and have someone drive to the vet. Sending Abe positive vibes......

    Please get him to another vet, an ER vet anyone.... just scoop him up and take him. This doesn't seem like something that should take his life, please! If he hasn't eaten or drank they need to put him IV fluids. I can't believe the vet you took him too just let you go home. He probably needs to be admitted for a few days in urgent care.

    so fearing the worst we had that "what if talk" with our sons this morning ages 8 and 10...after talking to the one other Vet in our area and showing pictures (Abe is to sick to travel) she agreed Abe probably had a severe reaction to the rabies vaccine..she gave us a full head muzzle and sent us home with more medicine.

    we muzzled him and was able to cut out most of the skin and fur that had turned into a nasty lesion and looked like an abcess...it was horrible to say the least. I have never seen so much puss and dead skin coming off with the fur attached...I have to admit I had to stop once and go throw up...the smell was to much....we poured almost 2 quart sized bottles of peroxide on the wound and got it cleaned up pretty good.

    His favorite things in the world is peanut butter and bacon...we tried putting his pills first in peanut butter and then rolled them in bacon but he wouldn't even eat that...I got bit trying to force them down his mouth.

    my little boys are heart broke, my dog is almost dead and I'm mad as hell at the Vet that did this....if any of you pray please pray for Abe tonight...it will be touch and go for a few days I'm afraid if we got the infection cleaned out in time.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Get him to an emergency Vet Now! He's not too weak to travel anywhere! If he's just going to die then what difference could too weak to travel make? He needs IV fluids and IV antibiotics. He needs a competent Vet. Please take him NOW!

    That vet needs reporting. Sent you home with a muzzle? You had to take care of his wounds? Unbelievable. They could have given him a local and cleaned everything so no muzzle would have been needed. I am totally shocked at the treatment you received from this quack. I do hope your boy is getting the help he needs. Please take him to another vet ASAP. Praying for you and him.

    The second Vet never saw the patient. OP said he was too sick to travel so they took pics to show Vet #2...which makes no sense to me. For a dog that is near death, there's no such thing as too sick to travel.

    I can not believe that owner gave up so easily. Hopefully you have seen another vet, and the first vet should lose his license(if he has one!) I am really upset by this. I am hoping and praying that you have taken Abe to somewhere for help. How could you give up so easily?! @HoldenIron It is making me sick.

    This is one of the saddest posts I've ever read. If ever there was a time to be proactive and assertive this is it. I'd be banging down doors.

    Abe made it through the night and actually he appeared to have slept better than he did the last few days. I'm trying to get in to see another vet. His wound looks better but still pretty bad. Going to clean and disenfect again in a little while and give him his medicine. I really think the good disenfecting and cleaning we gave him yesterday really helped.

    I talked again yesterday with the vet that did the procedure and gave him the vaccine and she was quick to tell me although she was sorry for Abe's condition we where notified that any and all procedures and vaccines for an English Bulldog was dangerous and that's why they had us sign waivers for liability prior to leaving him with them because he is consider very high risk. She said we could bring him back in but she could not guarantee anything and that we would still would be bound by the waivers for liability if anything happens to him. At this point I don't want him going anywhere near that clinic.

    i wish now I would not have gone down this road to start with.

    Thank God he is still okay. PLEASE FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, get him to another vet, maybe an emergency one... they are equipped to handle situations like this. Don't dare take him that that piece of crap vet that should have their license pulled. How dare they. It makes my blood boil. He could probably use some good IV fluids that will help his body fight harder to get rid of that infection. What meds did they give you? Are you going to be able to get him to a vet today??? Please please! Keep us posted. We are all very concerned for sweet Abe. I'm sure that hurts, some pain meds will help ease him as well. Don't just give up on him, or let him keep suffering.
