Hoping to get their records tomorrow
August 13, 2012 2:14pm CST
I called the vets last week to get a copy of Stripes and Patches records. I want to go to another vet for a second opinion. He drilled me on the phone, I guess most people will get a second opinion, I just said how I want to see if its from changing their food,a nd past visits. I just want a second opinion, I will still go to him for shots, and basic needs. Hopefully run in tomorrow after work and get a copy of it. Its under my Moms file, or our household so she has to sign saying she gives me permission to get them (even though they are my cats).

Well hopefully your mom will be able to go up there with you and sign for them, though honestly you would think that since you pay the bill for YOUR cats the vet would allow you.. Either way I hope you find out what's wrong or can get some better medicine. If you find out that it was rather simple to treat and your cats are feeling better, will you go to the vet you have been going to or the vet whom gave you the second opinion?

Hopefully that you do get the records with no issues, will your mom get upset that you want to get a second opinion? I missed a previous post, so what was it that he said? He must have felt bad about you not trusting him to give the right results/diagnosis. But they should understand that sometimes current docs can miss things. When its a new doctor they have a new perspective and are notso comforable with the patient so over looking things isnt so easy. Its really not a bad thing for your current vet, he should not be so bothered by it.
