my beagle star has a bad tummy and is shaking
i feel like im being ignored about my worry
we have taken her to the vets 2 nights before and there has been nothing wrong ,its cost a fortune at night

don't know if should leave it until day time to take her to the vets ,or go now

it costs like 200 pounds to be seen at night ,30 ponds during the day

twice before at night nothing has been wrong

im tired of not being taken seriously ,i have had loads of doga and know when they are unwel and not just tired

You know your dog, if you are very worried about her, take her. Is there another vet you could see for a different opinion?

When my beautiful cat baby Dweezil was unwell and not himself (complications from Diabetes), we were at the vet regularly (who thankfully was / is excellent and always took us seriously and was impressed that we knew our baby so well and had very good instincts, and he'd also been our vet since both our cats were kittens), and also the 24 hour animal emergency hospital...which was not always so good. At all. It depends who we saw. Some people were condescending. Some were arrogant.

Being at a vet hospital at 3am surrounded by emergencies like dogs being brought in on stretchers after being hit by cars, or cats being carried in distraught owners' arms after suffering kidney failure or being poisoned, and we're trying to keep our own baby as calm as possible while he's terrified, is extremely traumatic.

One time while we were overseas, our regular cattery / cat boarding carer knew Dweezy was not ok. He was off his food, threw up and kept laying on the cold floor instead of his warm bed even though it was a cold night. She took him to the 24 hour hospital, one of the vet nurses tested his blood sugar, said it was high but ok and told her to go home. She refused. She said she would wait to see a vet. And she waited for 3 hours. She knew our baby was not ok and needed help. He was normally feisty and very affectionate, but he was quiet and not very responsive. She said his eyes looked sad.

Finally a vet saw him and yep, he had Ketoacidosis, which is often fatal in cats. He'd had it before too. He almost died. They managed to save him, but if she hadn't insisted on being seen, he would have died that night. We are forever thankful to her.

It was the same thing that ended up taking him away from us forever, just under a year later. Now I'm crying.
