We spent a large portion of the day experiencing the drama of an Emergency Veterinary Clinic on a busy Sunday. Rocky, our beagle, has been sick for a couple of days with lack of energy and appetite. Then overnight he developed reddish diarrhea and fever so we brought him in. It was 4 hours total and he had lab work done, was diagnosed with colitis and given subcutaneous fluid. Now he is back home on two antibiotics and a special dog food.
But while we were there we witnessed all kinds of pet maladies. The worst of which was a small dog that was attacked by a deer in its fenced backyard. We are assuming the dog died given the reaction of the family. We are thankful Rocky should be OK but upset for this poor family on a Sunday morning.
