    dog abused by vet

    simimarie posted:
    have used the same vet for 4 years and he has done
    ok; i took my old tibetan spaniel in for grooming.
    when i picked her up her right leg was up to her
    stomach. i have spinal stenois and on that particular
    day i was in great pain and said nothing.

    for three weeks i spent time finding a combination of
    foods she would eat and helped her walk. at first
    she was very weak, but little by little she walked around
    on her three legs by the 6th week she was using all
    legs.

    i called the vet to find out what they had done and he
    played dumb. he never called me back to explain.
    so i got my records sent to another vet; when i went
    to pick up meds for the dogs; they refused service
    because they were friends with the other vet.

    i got the paperwork and called several vets and finally
    settled on one i had used many years prior. i told that
    vet what happened; in case he didnt want to provide
    me with a script for my dogs meds. but he didnt mind
    and was concerned that the original vet had refused
    to deal with the matter.

    what can i do to see that this doesnt happen anymore
    with this vet and their calling to prevent vets from
    helping me out.
