:: Ventin' and Shufflin' ::

So I am very frustrated and am takin' to the blog to vent about it.

I took kitty Emma in last Thursday for testing. She does not like going to the vet. She cowered and shed like crazy the whole time we were there. The nurses weighed her and took her temp and said she looked like she was in good health. We waited over an HOUR to see the vet. I guess they are just like every other doctor's office requiring you to wait for-ever to be seen. Do you know how hard it is to keep a freaking out cat calm and immobile for that long? Not fun. The vet told me that they would take blood and do testing to make sure it wasn't an infection or liver problems causing the seizures. If the tests came back clean they would then discuss options of treatments for epilepsy. I had other issues with Emma that I had asked to address but the vet seemed very busy and only spent a couple minute actually speaking with me and interacting with Em's before she disappeared. I then waited for them to come back and speak with me but was left there. I finally had to go ask if there was anything else needed or if Emma was done. After paying $200 (of money I didn't have to spare) they informed me they would call with the results the next day. Friday 4:30 p.m. and I haven't heard from the vet's office. I call and am informed the vet has "stepped out" and will call me with the results when she gets back in. I never heard back from them. I called again Monday afternoon and got the run around from 2 different people before someone checked on the results. I was told that her kidney function was stressed but if she seemed to be recovering otherwise I had nothing to worry about. I asked if I was to come back in to discuss treatments and was told that to just keep an eye on her until she had ANOTHER seizure...then to bring her back in. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? I paid $200 to have them tell me to wait for another seizure?! I am not happy about this AT ALL! Part of this is my fault for not being more proactive but I am completely unsatisfied with the treatment and so-called service provided at Animal Medical Services. So to you AMS...I will be taking Emma elsewhere for treatment in the future.

On to some happier fun! I found this on Ashlee's blog and thought it sounded silly and entertaining.
