It has been a really sad day for the family today. We had a beautiful German Shepard that was 7years old. I took him last Monday to the vet because he was acting like he had pain in the ear and neck. They said he had a ear infection, gave him his yearly shots because they were due in march, gave him antibiotics and pain meds. Well yesterday was the first day he didn't have antibiotics or pain meds because he was out. Well he couldn't hardly stand and was drooling all over the place. I rushed him back to the vet. They did blood work and sent us home and said they would call by 9:30 am with the results and have him a pain shot. Well this morning I tried to get him up to go to the bathroom and he wouldn't. I called the vet at 9:45, again at 10:15, both times they told me the results were in but the vet was busy and couldn't talk and the office staff couldn't read them (idk why). Well by 10:30 he passed away. I am so pissed the vet let him suffer. Apparently the blood work (which they called at noon) showed he was in kidney failure and needed to be hooked up to a IV. I am so upset and mad.
