Thanks @TonyM , he's never been so healthy and happy. They think he's got something stuck in his nose but when you mention you've got pet insurance to a vet they come on their pants. Hugging him now

In 1983 when I did my leaving cert in Ireland (A levels) in England my top CAO course of choice in Ireland was the 7 year veterinary medicine degree. To do a degree in medicine was 5 yrs, I didn't want to do that. Now I'm plasterer. Gutted

I've been lying under the dining room table with Herbie for the last 20 minutes, trying to get a sock out of his mouth

My cousin spent 7 yrs training to be a vet. Did it for about 10 yrs then gave it up to train agility dogs and compete

I was lying on the sofa beside Larry, he thinks there's a fox the shed. Any noise in the garden and he's gone #love my dog ( that's not twitters hit)

He's had his visit to the vet, flushed his nose, x Rays, blood tests, when they hear you've got insurance they milk it. Nose flush thing didn't work, now they want him in again for a specialist vet to put a camera up his nose while under anaesthetic. Up until now it's about £900, probably gonna be the same again next time. Get your pets insured guys, help your local vet live in style.
Thanks for the concern though @aspotofbother
:hola:

Blimey no stone unturned then eh? Hope they do get to the cause though and it isn't serious. Keep us updated.

Update. The blood tests and nose swabs revealed that he has E. coli in his nose and a fungus in his sinuses. More antibiotics and today they drilled a hole in his head to flush out his sinuses with anti fungal stuff. He's home now with one of them lampshade things on his head plus more antibiotics. Back to the vet on Saturday for post op check (cheque maybe) and another vet visit a week after. They say it should work

Word of wisdom to prospective dog owners. GET PET INSURANCE.
Mine cost about £150 for the year (£6k cover) but I'd imagine the bill must be over £4k now

That's a bit of a palaver, poor pooch. It's unreal how much is the vets are charging.
Me dog ate an Easter egg, took him to the vet to get jabbed so he can barf up the stuff, cost 290 @10pm.
One of the Mrs horse had lymes disease cost like 4k to get it treated. My little boy would be devastated losing our dog.

Hope he's on the mend now mate. At least they got to the bottom of it. Bless him.
Drive you mad most of the time, but couldn't be without mine.

Sorry for your loss mate...my jack russel just had his eye out last week....he's 15 so anasthetic was a real concern....its so hard for the vets to get the dosage bang on.

Don't let it put you off another one, I know loads of people who dont have another one because the loss was so traumatic but for all the years of happiness it must be worth it.
