    Default Good Vet in Santo Domingo or San Cristobal????

    We have a bit of an emergency, and need a GOOD vet in either Santo Domingo or San Cristobal.

    Our male rottie was neutered today, and it went badly, we need to get him some help first thing in the morning.

    Names and addresses please, of places that you have personal experience with.

    Thanks in advance

    The "vet" who did the castration was a butcher, what a disaster, the poor dog was damned near hemorrhaged to death. Our regular vet does not do them [he doesn't even have an office, he's the vet for UMFU out here, takes care of the large animals/cows mostly], so he brought another guy with him. I won't go into details, but it was brutal surgery. We called our vet last night and he came back [alone, thank God, or I think Mr. AE would have killed the other guy] and gave him something to slow the bleeding and clot the blood. I've been cooking liver for him to build his blood back up, he had a quiet night and no huge puddle of blood this morning, just a trail, seeping, not pouring out.

    I think emergency has passed, for the moment anyway, but we have the cellphone #'s of the vet Annie recommended, and will have him in the car in a flash if the bleeding starts again. I'm a little nervous with everything closing down Wednesday for the long weekend, so watching very closely.

    As dv8 said, we've had a rough month with the dogs. The mother of the pups had retained placentas and went septic, bleeding from nose & mouth and in urine. We had to remove pups from her, as infection would be in milk too, we lost the 3 males. So we have been hand feeding the females for about 10 days. We dewormed them on Saturday, and they didn't react well, diarrhea/vomiting, not eating, so we were worried we'd lose them.

    As far as the mom, we're taking her to SD today to be seen, to see if she can be saved.

    We need our own private clinic here - unfortunately we're in the middle of nowhere in the campo, so it's been a challenge.

    I'm not a vet but an easy injection of vitamine K before starting the process would have probably avoided or reduced the problem. Sounds like he didn't tie off one of the main veins either. What a genius. Do you have him on antibiotics just to be sure? And watch out for flies so they don't infect the cut. Poor pup

    and people ask me why we do not want anymore pups. this is why.sometimes things go wrong. poor fiji had a hell of a pregnancy, her hair was falling off, she got infected with ticks and she was not herself. luckily for us all 8 puppies lived but we went out of the way to care for them, including helping to deliver them and then checking them few times at night. i love animals and i get very depressed when something bad happens to them...

    a while ago this homeless pregnant cat we were feeding run inside the house and under the sofa after i opened the door. she gave birth under that sofa too. we did not know she had two dead kittens inside. took her to one vet,she said it was all good. the next day we took her to another vet who operated on her immediately, she was put to sleep and cut within minutes from our arrival. he said that she was hours away from death. we thought she will die anyway but she pulled through and she is a happy, fat and healthy cat now.

    so yes, a good vet is the key. it is very difficult to find one here.

    i hope the mother makes it and the remaining pups survive. for being such big and strong dogs rottweilers are pretty fragile, especially when they are young.
