Scratch That…Chloe’s Surgery is Not Scheduled

We got a call from the vet last night and she said that she had discussed Chloe’s surgery with all the other doctors at the practice and they decided that they probably weren’t the best people to do the surgery.  They said they could do the spleen surgery, no problem, but if the polyp in her bladder ended up being anything other than that, they would have to send her to the surgeon.  So…they said that we should go to the surgeon’s office to have it done so that Chloe wouldn’t have to have two surgeries.

The surgeon is actually Riley’s surgeon (for her hips…I guess these people do it all!) and we have to take Chloe to (another) consultation next Thursday at 3:00.  Luckily, the surgeon is located the next city over from us and it is a 10 or 15 minute drive, so not bad.

My dad called to see if the specialist in Chesapeake that we saw last week could send the ultrasound and X-rays over to this new surgeon’s office.  The lady on the phone said that they could burn the ultrasound to a disc but that they couldn’t mail it…we would have to go pick it up.  What the crap??  Seriously, lady?  We had to drive like 45 minutes to get there.  And we paid them almost $450…so you honestly can’t throw it in an envelope and slap a stamp on it and send it!?  Outrageous.  Needless to say, we’re not happy and my dad is calling them back today to try to talk them into mailing it…so we’ll see.

Chloe on her usual perch…sleeping the day away.

  3. Man, that's just not cool. As if you don't already have plenty on your plate. Try and talk to the manager of the veterinary hospital, rather than whomever answers the phone and see if that helps.Paws crossed for you.
