I had my pup vaccinated for parvo but for some reason it didnt get documented. I went in to get x rays for cruz's hips and they sort of rushed me out of there without really getting any decent information on what the surgery is about. I suppose it is the same for doctors and humans though. I am in agreement though, from my personal research about humans and thyroid problems, what one doctor says is normal may still benefit from treatment, when symptoms are present.
This whole thing has just been a nightmare! I feel bad for my mom because she really is trying, but I feel like she is getting dragged along. She's been going to this vet for years with every dog we've had and I think she really trusts their opinions. I, on the other hand, do not trust anyone, which becomes a problem haha.
I talked to my vet who found it strange that the original vet gave us the results so quick; he said that thyroid panels have to be shipped off to be tested and the results returned within two days. I'm really not even going to pursue what was going on at that other vet. Finn is going to my vet today (he was booked yesterday) and we should know the results by Friday, possibly Monday with it being New Years and what not.
