Bella has been panting heavily at strange times, such as middle of the night when it is not hot.
After turning to Dr Google, a vet appointment was made.
During the week, her respiration rate was recorded.
Friday was the day.
As it was the new vet, her latest vaccine certificate and
former test for Cushings were taken along.
The young vet was very nice and thorough: heartbeat normal, teeth good. It was decided that Bella should have blood tests
She stayed all day.
$500 later, it was inconclusive. She does have a slight respiratory infection and was given an antibiotic.
However, for a further $650 she can have further tests
that will probably be inconclusive.
Just once I'd like to visit a vet and have them say
Oh, she/he has such and such.
I'm a bit tired of tests to say what's not wrong.
Thus ends 'rant of the day'.
