That is awful. I would blame the vet too. I have a beagle myself - they are so sweet. Hope your little guy makes a speedy recovery.

This happened while your dog was AT THE VET OFFICE?!?! Ok I was a vet tech for over 10 years. This is in no way acceptable. I can't fathom how that could have happened without some serious negligence on the staffs part. I hope your furbaby makes a full recovery. The vet is covering the full cost of all ICU treatment correct? Also I would be having a sit down with the vet and the medical director or practice owner . They need to explain exactly how this happened and what changes they are going to make to guarantee that it NEVER happens again. I am just appalled by this. It's just to common sense to take precautions against this. Good luck and healing thoughts to Elvis!!!

Yes he fell Sunday because he has bad arthritis. They kept him to give him anti-inflammatories. I was getting ready to go pick him up when they called and told me what happened. Yes they are paying all his bills. From what I understand they were walking Elvis. They were grooming the St. Bernard and he attacked. I'm still in shock.

I am so sorry, shock it the only reasonable response!! Then anger! Give both you and he a few days to recover ( him physically and you emotionally!!) but I really think they need to sit down with you.

Sadly sometimes even with a serious mishap or mistake the response is only as involved as the owners reaction.
That is they may not make needed changes if they don't think your "too" upset. I'm not talking about you needing to yell or scream or cause a reckus but being firm and letting them know your concerns are not just going to go away without follow through from them is appropriate .
I truly hope this was just a freak accident but that doesn't make is any less difficult for you or Elvis!

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

What a horrible turn of events for Elvis.

Sending healing thoughts his way.

I just got back from seeing him and he looked a lot better than I thought he would. He tried to sit up when we came in and the vet said he is trying to beg "cookies" off of everyone. He still has a long way to go - 2 more days before the chest tube can be removed and another 3-4 days after that before he would be able to come home. Thanks for all the good thought and prayers - they are working.

Awe poor Elvis! I pray for a speedy recovery for him! How aweful! Vet better be giving you much better deals on your bills from now on, he's lucky you're not suing him! Hope your fur baby can come home soon, I'm sure he misses you! But begging for treats is a good sign and such a beagle thing

OMG what a sad & scary story

Sending thoughts & payers to Elvis. I hope he comes back better than ever. Poor little guy. I can't believe a dog isn't even safe at the vet...

Hopefully his chest tube can be removed today and if all goes well he can come home Monday. He is walking a little (because he has so many tubes in him he can't go far).
