Our little chihuahua had a seizure and since it was 6:30pm, our regular vet was closed. The only facility I could think of was ER4PETS on World Trade Drive, so that's where we took her. When she was weighed, we learned that her weight had dropped from just under 5 pounds to 2.9 pounds! What a shock! The doctor examined her and found she had low blood sugar. She kept her overnight with an IV while feeding her hourly. She also performed tests to try to determine the cause. They were available 24/7 for phone calls to check her progress and the next afternoon, she was stable enough to be released but with no definitive diagnosis. We were given antibiotics and special food and strict orders to make sure she took food every couple of hours and they said we could call with any questions or bring her back anytime she exhibited the same symptoms. We did call several times with questions and were always given helpful information. The doctor sent all the information directly to our regular vet, where we took her for an exam the following day. Since she was doing so much better, they sent her home with us and told us to bring her back immediately if she had the same symptoms. The doctor and staff at ER4PETS definitely saved our dog's life and we are very grateful to them for their care and concern.
PS ultimately, after more symptoms and tests by our regular vet, we learned that she had Addison's Disease and we are controlling that with medication. THANK YOU TO THE DOCTOR AND STAFF AT ER4PETS FOR KEEPING HER ALIVE.
