This is our story......
We have only had baby boris for a few weeks now and he has been the bubbliest, funniest and cuddliest puppy ever. From running up the to the door when his daddy comes home, snuggling with his mummy on the sofa or playing with his brothers.
Until Tuesday where we noticed his eye became inflamed and we took him to the vets, got told it was conjunctivitis and was given drops and told we would see improvement in a coupleof days. 2 days passed and Boris’s eye had got worse, so I rung back on Friday and was fobbed off to be told he needs treatment longer and was told he didn’t need a cone. Saturday came and Boris’s nose started to stream and he was extremely uncomfortable with his nose aswell as his eye, so I rushed him back to the vets. To be told yes, his eye does look worse, try these steroid drops and his runny nose was his tears coming from his eye. I trusted the ‘professional’. Sunday came along and my baby boris started to severely struggle with his breathing and became very drowsy, yet again rushed him to the vets where they snatched him off me to rush and put him on oxygen. They checked him overand told me he has suspected phenomena:(
Why wasn’t this check done yesterday? Why only now, when my can barely breathe? He was rush to an over night intensive care unit, where he still is now.
They have confirmed my baby has pneumonia, along with a nasal infection and conjunctivitis. It was never tear drops coming out of his eyes, it was mucas from his infection. This could of all been prevented, and our baby treated earlier if the duty of care was provided professionally. Be all and end all our vets have given our baby no care at alland have misdiagnosed him. Boris has deteriorated over the last 6 day’s and they have cared at all :(
Boris is insured, but they will not cover him due to the cooling off period and the KC will not cover him also. I am currently furloughed fromwork and not been working since March. My partner is a fire fighter and applying for over time as we write this us.
Boris is still currently in intensive care, on oxygen and antibiotic drip. He will be having nebuliation treatment today to try and unblock the nasal passages. Also under go treatment for the conjunctivitis aswell as fighting the pneumonia. With him being so small and young he is fighting his way through this to be back at home with his family.
We will pay what ever we can to get our baby better, but in this current time we are struggling so any donation to help get my baby home and better will be hugely appreciated.
Sadly our baby could not fight anymore and we had to let him go Monday evening, we are left with excessive vet bills whilst going down the legal route to get justice for our baby boris, this could of been prevented and could still be with his family today!
LETS GET BABY BORIS BACK WHERE HE BELONGS!
