I am still working on my project, I actually ran into a few snags that I wasn't really expecting, but don't worry, I am taking lots of "during" pictures for you.
Since that isn't quite ready, I thought I would tell you about a conversation I over heard at an appointment for my mom. It went like this.
Lady 1: Did "Lacy" stay in the hospital last night? (Guessing on the name)
Lady 2: I think they kept her because she didn't have to have an IV.
Lady 1: If you have to have an IV, they don't keep you overnight?
Lady 2: Well, if they need an IV, they go to the emergency room, and they do it there, but they can't stay there overnight.
Lady 1: So they don't put an IV in at the Hospital?
Lady 2: No, they aren't able to do it there, you have to go to the emergency room for that.
Lady 1: What are you suppose to do when they are sick? Can they stay overnight in the ER?
Lady 2: No, because there is no one there at night to take care of them.
Lady 1: I can't believe that if you take your pet to the ER, they can't keep them overnight!
It was then I thought to myself, first of all, Ladies, you must really be in tune to your pets. Mine stay outside, and unless, they aren't getting up and moving around, or bleeding, I can't tell if they are sick.
Second, where is the animal hospital you keep talking about. I have lived here my whole life and I don't know where the hospital is, Vet's offices I know, hospital, not sure.
Also, get a new vet, my vet will keep my animal overnight if it needs it.
*Disclosure: I too love my animals, I am not a hater. I just don't have the money to throw around if they aren't feeling well.
