I called this morning and was able to get an appointment for 11:20.
Grabbed the bottle of Rutin I got at Sprout's last Friday to show the vet. We got in, Captain got weighed, he's lost two pounds since last Monday. The vet explained that his body burns a lot of calories when it tries to breathe (cardio exercise of the worst kind). She took him in the back and took an x-ray and drained fluid off of his lungs. There wasn't even half as much as she drew last week and the consistency was way better, this stuff was thin, more fluidy. She said that's a good sign.
We did have a nice discussion about the pharmacy and wondered why they seem to be having problems. I told her that their website said they serviced over 15,000 clinics last year and maybe that's the problem. They don't have enough employees to keep up with their clients and their customer service is poorly affected. All I know is I do NOT wantt to send them any more of my money.
Oh, and the prescription was there. The phone call yesterday that said it would be there tomorrow, was wrong.
But that's good news about Captain. Good news is always welcomed. And I'm really glad that I was proactive and checked around on the Rutin, I think it's really going to help him.
Like the doc said "one week at a time".
