My poor Larry hAs had a runny nose for weeks, now it is bleeding . He's under geneal anaesthetic on Tuesday for a nose flush thing. 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
Blimey no stone unturned then eh? Hope they do get to the cause though and it isn't serious. Keep us updated.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
That's a bit of a palaver, poor pooch. It's unreal how much is the vets are charging.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
