Kaydee’s Story: Need to know – NOW!
EDITOR’S NOTE: This post is a continuation of our guest author series. Kaydee’s story follows Kaydee and her health as she switches to a raw food diet.
Well I couldn’t wait any longer I called Purdue Small Animal Clinic today especially after Brent this morning bombarded me with ALL his questions ((LOL)). He also called up our holistic vet asked her if there was a closer place to have the MRI done, he wanted to know why a hospital would not perform the MRI (after all this is his daughter — not a dog). He was at the point of cancelling the MRI if we could not keep her with us overnight. Which as you all know was really BIG on my list too.
After the 4th time of calling the clinic – each time for a question Brent had, I fortunately got to speak with someone that had more knowledge. The initial visit (on Jan. 12th) the student technicians will gather pertinent information about Kaydee, draw blood AND then we can take her with us back to a hotel and keep her overnight then return her at 7:30 a.m. for the MRI. (mommy doing happy dance here).
The receptionist was very kind and directed me to their website which gave information regarding local hotels that accepted dogs or might accept dogs. I called the first two the receptionist stated were the closest to the clinic – NO DOGS allowed! Then I called my favorite hotel chain and voila! Comfort Inn & Suites not only do they accept dogs but gave us a big discount for going to the clinic!!!
What a relief! I thank you God. Now I just need to wait for the right moment to inform Brent that Kaydee has to be sedated for the 90 minute long MRI and that it will take approximately a total of 4-5 hours from admission to discharge.
My next concern will they give her something to alleviate nausea, hunger and the LONG car ride home (2 ½ hrs)! AND please pray for NO SNOW and clear roads. Thanks!
