CHERYL ANNA Posted October 19, 2007 Report Share Posted October 19, 2007 HELLO everyone, brand new to this board,just having a hard time with the loss of my 4 1/2 y/o shar pei.Started back on Aug 10th, my initial vet said she had Lymes disease, and gave her doxycycline to speed healing, but even after a week no changes, so thevet took her off doxycyline and put her on amoxycyline, for 5 more days,this still did not help, so vet took her off ALL meds for 5 more days, then put her back on doxycyline, i still see no improvements, vet saidshe is a "slow healer", etc.....then she was switched to Doxycyline again, once i reached the 30 day period with no improvement the vet finally takesan xray and finds anemia, which she didn't have Aug. 10th, and also resp. infection and bronchial infection and needs internal specialist.I feel that this vet mis diagnosed my Dakota (4 1/2 y/o name) and shouldhave done something sooner, after spending thousands of dollars andso many antibotics, Dakota never got better, only worse, on Sept 25ththe internal specialist couldn't even see her "heart" thru the Xrayscuz there was sooo much bacteria/infection covering, and she was justgetting worse, and had the hardest time breathing, and had to put my"baby" down.Its been well over 3 weeks, I feel the pain more with Dakota cuz she wasso young, and I wonder if the vet should haved done something moreafter a few days on doxycyline when i brought her in on Aug 10th....and if the vet did something maybe Dakota would be alive today.She was my lil' girl, Dakota, I still have my 2 other Pei's at home,who I adore, 5 & 1 y/o...but Dakota is gone, and she took alot ofmy heart with her.Just any help during this time would be great, I am so much needof support.thanks for listening!!((((Cheryl Anna))))) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
