The good news is she's on the mend. The educational part is spending the better part of a night at the 24h vet is really an eye opener. It's a hard profession, as they can't explain how they feel, and aren't smart enough to really be accepting of help. It has to be an emotionally taxing job. Pets generally aren't big noisemakers, but it's even more so when they're injured or under the weather. People don't say much when they accompany them in, the pets are silent, the staff speaks in low tones. It has an air of heavyness and drama to it all.
I got to bring my pet home with a positive prognosis. Many didn't as situations are just to progressed or extreme to start with. Further, many are faced with very very tough decisions on cost vs. treatment as they don't have the means or insurance to ring up a big bill on a pet. Those are tough decisions to watch happen to families at 2am. Animals are valuable parts of families as any pet owners know.
