Hiya,

Hope Bailey is doing well. I haven't read all the replies but just wanted to let you know I went through a similar thing with Toby when he was younger. At about midnight I was getting ready to go to bed and went to put Toby in his crate but beforehand I let him out for a wee, and in the living room I spotted the handle of a disposable razor. Of course I panicked and searched the rest of the house for the head with the blades in but found it nowhere.
I immediately rang the emergency vet and said I think my dog has swallowed razor blades and took him in straight away for x rays etc. He was operated on at 2am to remove all four blades and had a massive scar along his belly. He healed really well and was bouncing again in no time! You can still feel the scar now but it's covered in fuzz.

I'm sure Bailey will be up to his old tricks in no time. I'm completely disgusted at the first vet you took him to, if you told them you think he'd swallowed something they at least should have checked. I'd report them!

What a nightmare! I hope our boy is back home with you asap. As already mentioned, it is a good idea to write down everthing - dates & times as far as you can remember. Is he insured? If so get in touch with the insurance company, because they should have advisors to work on the complaint for you. The main thin though as you say, is getting Bail back home and recovering.

Hiya,
Hows Bailey doing? Is he home yet?

I make Florrie's Kongs up by cooking some chicken, rice, veg and then Puree it all together with some veg water from the pan and then stuff and freeze the kongs. She also likes cooked fish which I then flake and mix with some boiled potatoes which I then cut really small or mash and add veg and veg water and then mush all together and stuff and freeze. The vet said she's only allowed bland stuff so recommended these fillings, which were great at getting her eating her own food again.

Florrie had her stitches out today and the vet said there should be no lasting damage. It's taken her 12 days to get to where she is now, she's pretty much her normal self again. She can't have long walks for a few weeks yet but she's happy at the moment.

Hope Bailey makes a speedy recovery.

Bailey is home and bouncing! The vets said the problem is going to be keeping him still and calm as he's been trying to empty the clinical waste bins etc in the vets! I think being home has meant he can finally relax as he's fast asleep next to me as I type! However I have stopped him licking ...

Sooo glad to have him home!

Just catching up with this thread and so pleased -
his protective gear brought a smile to my face - very fetching!!!
What a relief his on the mend now you can concentrate on
reporting the bad practice of the 1st vet.
Let us know what you decide and how to go about it.

Hey those pants are primarks best! lol Actually im changing them today thinking black ones for the dignified look lol Bailey's done really well I got up and let him out about 3am this morning, he went out to have a wee and then went back to bed. The only jumping he's doing is onto the couch thankfully he knows hes not up to counter surfing etc. He's flitting between chewing toys (which all seem new to him as he hasn't seen them for 4 days) and sleeping! Saving the frozen chilcken and rice filled kongs for when I really need them! Our other dog is desperate for Bailey to play with him so Baileys going into the crate to get away from him! Thankfully he's going away for the night tomorrow so will make things a bit easier.

Spoke to vet yesterday and she said you should complain as its the only way people know theres a problem. Makes me think they've had other complaints. She said we've also been really unlucky as the vet hospital only provide 1 night and 1 weekend in 5! So were gonna start with a letter of complaint and see what response we get and take it from there!

Hi, Very pleased to hear Bailey is home and doing well...thats the most important thing and really bad luck on your part to have the need of the vets on that 1 in 5 weekend would have saved so much stress if it hadn't been....good advice from your vet if we don't complain how would anyone know they are giving a less than their best service...Good Luck to you and bigs hugs to Bailey :) Rae and Vince x

Who was it you used hun? as were local and the other year my mums cat came home around midnight breathing shallow and coughing blood! It was a horrific sight and I grabbed yellow pages and rang an emergency vet! and 3 times somebody picked up the phone onlt to put it straight down again, I finally got through to a sleepy gentleman who after I explained the situation he remarked "you woke me up over this? its obvious the cats been hit, probably by a car" and then he just bloody hung up!! :twisted: :evil:
I`ve always wanted to put in a complaint but afraid to as after I rang right back and was greeted by his answer maching I left one of the most X rated, angry threats I have EVER made! :(
