“For My Greyhound: Lachesis”


Description from Vampire Chickie Ravin: We have Chesis on a palette on our bedroom floor right now. She had a very bad start to life, we rescued her, she's been with us 9 years. She got into the trash, and we thought, ate something that made her sick, that was yesterday. Today, she's breathing in short gasping breaths, each with the undertone of a whimper, she's been throwing up everything we give her, even water. She's my girl, I cold cocked the dude that was gonna drown her as a puppy to get her. My Husband and roomate are trying to help, they say lets just watch her, care for her, try to get her to drink and eat. I'm all for that, as the alternative is just too devastating to me right now. We can't afford to take her to the vet right now, or even the humane society or ASPCA, to have her put to sleep if need be. We will have to do it ourselves, and I just CAN'T do that. All I can do is sit here and watch her pain, try to comfort her. My gut tells me I'm losing her, I pray to all of the Powers that be that I'm wrong, anyway, this pick is for my Chesis.

    I’m so sorry to hear that your dog is sick. If she needs to go to the vet, just take her and if they’re any decent kind of people, they’ll help her and then work out a way for you to pay them back in the future. I’m sure there are LB people who would help, too. I would.

    Ravin darling, I’am getting so sad to hear this, but as Karokat says take her and try the vet, if they are animal persons they will help, it’s their work to help animals and save life!
    Hugs n healing power to doggie

    Ah Ravin, so sorry – my friend here in town is a Greyhound rescue lady. At last count – she had 6 of her own and 13 fosters in her tiny house – Obviously, she is single. She is a dear person too and every time one is in bad shape – she is drained for weeks from the stress. I’ll send energy your way and do some praying too. Take care sweetie.

    I’m sorry to hear about your doggy! I am a dog lover too, and I know how awful it is to see our babies in pain.

    I am so sorry to hear that you and your dog is going through such a horrible time. I am a dog lover(I have 3) and I hate it when they don’t feel good. I am with the others and I would go to the vet with her even if the unthinkable has to happen you may be doing yourself and her a kindness. Most vets want to assist and help, surely they can come up with a plan to help out if they have any conscience at all. I will be thinking of you both today.

    Ravin, I am so sorry about your precious Chesis. At least call the vet, tell them your situation and see if they will work with you. My gut tells me DON’T WAIT!!!! My cousin is a Vet and knowing first hand some of her stories, poisin is nothing to mess around with. I know you are in a tough situation right now. There are those of us here that will help! Praying for you!

    Ravin, I am so sorry to hear about the situation with your beloved Chesis. Please do not wait to get care for her — if she can be saved, time is of the essence, especially if poisoning (even food poisoning) is involved! Frida may be right that Chesis has something stuck in her throat that is interfering with her breathing. All the vets I know of have payment plans, as emergencies with our beloved fur babies can not be planned ahead of time. Please, please, please, do not let her suffer like this……

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please keep us updated, dear friend.

    Thank you everyone, nothing in her throat or esophagus, I’m a vet tech, was the first thing I checked. I’m so scared right now, and none of the local vets will work with me, they all want “Cash on service” what has this world come to when it’s all about money, and not heart. To the person who sent me the email at PrimaByNature, pease, if you’re on let me know, I’ve sent a reply to you via email as well, but know of no other way to contact you, please, please get a hold of me asap. I’ll be keeping both LB and my AOL up and will be glued to this computer till I hear from you!

    Daisy Chick - Dawn says:

    I just thought of something some vets in this area will let you make payments by credit card. They will bill you once a month on your card until the balance is paid. Who knows nothing ventured nothing gained, but it may be a win win for everyone. I am still praying for you.

    Ravin, have you checked with the Humane Society or your local SPCA about vets that work on payment plans or paying what you can afford? They may be aware of ones that the others don’t know about.
