[Felvtalk] Update on Charlotte

2009-04-19 Thread Laura Mostello
I brought Charlotte back to the vet yesterday. She still wasn't doing well, just nibbling at her food and appearing very lethargic. Since I wasn't especially happy with my vet's response to her, I tried another clinic that I'd heard good things about, just to get a second opinion. Dr. Ray took

Hi Laura, Thanks for the update on Charlotte. I'm so glad she is doing better now after her tranfusion, but egads what a vet bill!!! Your mom sounds like mine (God rest her soul). She was always upset about the money I spent on my cats, and she always suggested I put them to sleep. Lorrie

The pay-off time you have for Care Credit depends on the deal the vet's office has with the company. My dog swallowed a golf-ball sized tennis ball in the park last Fall. I took him to the vet right away, and the surgery the vet insisted had to be done asap would cost *about* $4000 (not

I've thought about checking it out, but I've met a few people who have been turned down by Care Credit lately for no obvious reason. I suppose the rotting posts on the front porch won't be fixed this year, and forget about painting the dining room. That's the most I've ever spent in one day on

Ask your mother if she would like to be put down under the circumstances. Don't let her get you down. You did wonderfully. No matter how it turns out, Charlotte is a very lucky cat and she knows it. On Apr 19, 2009, at 9:02 AM, Laura Mostello wrote: I brought Charlotte back to the vet
