Robin Quitman, Mississippi 1/10/2015 11:59:34 AM I have a 4 year old female Chi-Weenie. Just recently she has started drinking a LOT of water. Early last year I had problems with our local vet CONSTANTLY telling me she had kidney/bladder infections like every other month and would just give me bactrim and pain med and send me home and that went on for a while and I took her in one morning and asked the attendant to have the vet ex-ray her when she got there because we thought she had back problems (I had discussed this before and NO attention given to the matter). 4 hours later I get a call and they said Lucy was ready and it was a KIDNEY infection! I asked if they had ex-rayed her, NO! I asked why,"Ashely (the vet) said she didn't need to,she had a kidney infection,come get her she's ready"! I told them that I would be there in 3 minutes and she had better had her ex-ray or being ex-rayed when I get there! I get there and the vet is standing in one of the rooms behind the desk and she sees me and slams the door! The attendant tells me to "SIT down and I'll get Lucy". She brings me Lucy and I ask to speak to Ashley, "SHE IS VERY BUSY, and said to tell you Lucy has a KIDNEY infection and to keep her away from scraps"!!!! I had a problem with my sister giving her daughter's dogs scraps and Lucy would sneak down and eat some and get sick but NOT that often only once or twice and my sister took control of the situation for me. That was the last time I took Lucy there and started taking her to another vet 25 miles away and she did NOT have a kidney infection she has back problems!!!! In her neck area and her lower back and possible pancertitis! I will NEVER take her back to my local vet again. When I pick her up she just kinda moans like a wheezing moan. She's done that for at least a year or so. and she moans when she moves lying on her pillow or in bed at night.
