Maggie Update 1

So I took her to Michigan State Vet Hospital last night and I am happy to say Maggie is being treated like a Princess by them.

Spoke with the ER Vet after she examined Maggie and she said Maggie is a good candidate for Internal Medicine to do a case study on. Which means starting this morning she will be having a whole slew of students, techs and Vets study her case and will be getting immediate, constant care. Yea for Maggie.

They will be doing a whole bunch of stuff. A very indepth blood panel, a GI panel and a cLIp (pancrease blood panel) which both will be sent to Texas A&M because they are experts in doing and studing those. Urine analysis and some other urine test. Ultrasound, which should happen by early afternoon at the latest. And if need be a scope down the throat and up the rear end. A couple others that I am forgetting.

They were very detailed, but explained it so one could understand what was going on. Took a lot of time to make sure I understood everything and were very nice and helpful and respectful.

And I have to say it isn't going to cost as much as I thought it would, maybe because it's a teaching hospital.

But I have to say at this poiny if the puppers ever have anything remotely serious with them I will just take them to MSU, it's only 1 hour 20 minutes from us and they are not for pussyfooting around.

They are suppose to call this morning with an update on what has happened and what will be happening

Sounds like she is getting the works. I hope they can help her... she is in my prayers (and ya'll too).
