At this point I have spoken with our Dr Pam and gotten her advice and that of a vet friend up north as her other eye was effected. Switched meds and got her better.
MY VET upon coming back that 10 days later did flourese the eye and took a culture of each to send to Cornell. I tolld him what I was doing and he agreed ok.
Few more chats with Pam and my friend and we were whipping this. I get a call 2 wks later to tell me it is allergic conjuntivitis. Ok, I kinda figured that out for myself.
Next day get another call from vet and he said he told Cornell to go ahead and send the cultures to Texas U to continue the culture cuz he "thinks" there may be yeast. SIGH> I did not authorize that and told him so. Texas results came in 33 days after her culture was taken. Allergic conjunctivitis. AAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGG! Yesterday I got my final bill. Ready?
Rose has been sold to a good friend, our Ginny St Pierre. Her eye dilema was all disclosed, she was just about perfect when she left and is perfect now.
"I", ME, and Dr Pam cured this horse not that other jerk. $554
SO..how would you handle this one folks! I feel I owe him the first call, the work on the 2nd call minus the trip fee as it was his fault he had to come back, and the Cornell culture. NO MORE!
Man I hate confrontations! But I am NOT paying this much money for a filly that is gone and did not get any help from these folks. Can you hear me screaming!!!!!!
Also, I realize the additional amounts over and above the $161 I owe the vet is owed to Cornell & Texas U. That is $393 worth of cultures! How can that be? To whom would I speak do you think?
