Hail Call to LABS4ME

11 posts in this topic

Labs,

I think I am going to need a suggestion on where to bring my dog for possible surgery.

We took our Dog to an Emergency Vet in Coon Rapids and my wife is terribly upset at their attitude. She says it seemed they were only interested in the money. Anyway, I know you know alot of good people/places out there.... any suggestions???

NorthEast Metro if possible.

Thx,

Mike

Best of luck. Just some words of encouragement. Went through a similar event with our first dog. Lump in throat, trouble breathing/swallowing. Biopsy inconclusive but leaning towards cancer. Opened her up for surgery and was obviously a bad infection. Hope you encounter similar results. Extremely humorous ending to my story that I will add when I have more time and you hopefully also report a happy ending.

Pretty sure I know where Labs is going to send you. Don't let the longer drive alter your decision to get the best care.

Sorry Ken,

I was going to call you last night but my brother needed to talk.

The vet gave us some Pain killers, Tranquilizers and Steriods.

They told the wife to give her pain killers for the biopsy pain and Tranquilizers to keep her calm. We only gave her 1 pain killer. She is extremely calm for a springer, she's my second one.

We have been giving her the Steriods and she is doing much better. Makes me wonder if it just isn't an infection.

Anyway I told the wife to call and bug them about the results of the biopsy. I haven't heard yet.

Ken, Is their a time frame in which you prefer to take calls?

Thx,

Mike

Labs,

Thanks for the recommendations. I will be calling one of them shortly.

Update:

The Vet called and they said that the biopsy test didn't show signs of cancer, but I got the feeling that they may not have biopsied the correct area, per the Vets comments. They want me to bring her back in the another visit.

I will be taking her somewhere else to get a second opinion.

Thanks for the support, Maxx is doing fine. Breathing normal and back to her spunky self, chasing the watering hose.

Mike

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
