When I went to pick him up Saturday, he was loose in the ICU area, after getting out of the metal crate and taking off his muzzle. They would not touch him, and yet when it was time to take him to me for the release, the vet tech walked him on a leash with the muzzle hanging on his neck. Tux did not bother her at all, just wanted out of there.
This morning I called after he vomited twice, wanting to bring him in. I think I actually sort of beg the Dr. who saw Tux yesterday to try to work something out so that he can get care, even if I have to stay there the whole time and "pop in" to handle him when needed. He still has a guarded prognosis and they don't know why he is not eating, and it is made obvious that they don't want him there. At the same time I am told is that he is a severe case, so you can imagine how hard this is.
I had to leave him because I don't want him to die without a fight. That is pretty much it. Dogs like Tux always get the short end of the stick, for one reasons or the other.
Tomorrow, the same Dr. who tried to help Tigger will take care of Tux, very nice woman and knowledgeable doctor, so I am hoping for a straight talk about my scared boy. He is not going to spend his last days, if it comes down to it, alone in a vet clinic where he is not wanted.
