Okay, a couple of hours ago, this would have been titled "FURIOUS", but I've prayed, and let go of most of my anger. My dog developed a hematoma on his ear. I took him into the vet Friday afternoon. They said leave him overnight, and they would do the surgery. Then he could be picked up Saturday at 1pm. That would interfere with working at the zoo, but I told them okay, that was fine. So I get there Saturday around 12:30pm, and they have a full waiting room. Sigh. They ask if I'm there to check on Reno, or pick him up. I said pick him up, as I was told he would be ready. Then they make me wait until all the dogs have been seen to tell me that Reno had not had surgery yet. I told them I was late already for the zoo, and had to go. I could be back around 6pm to pick him up. They said that was fine, they needed 3 or 4 hours to take care of him. By now it was 1pm. The receptionist said repeatedly the vet would call me, and took down my cell phone number. Off to the zoo I go, and I made a 90 minute drive in exactly an hour. How, I don't know, it must have been Divine Intervention. I get my owl and head into the zoo. The vet NEVER calls me. By the time I get off work, the office is closed, and the phones are off. It was 4:30pm. So now Reno has to stay until Monday. Wanna bet they are going to charge me an extra two night's boarding for it too? I was FUMING all day today. When I pick Reno up Monday, it will be the last time I use that vet. There is another I can use from now on. Anyway, I'm not so happy, and lesson learned. I should have waited until Monday to take him in, used a different vet, and should have taken him home today when they said they hadn't done the surgery. Wonder if they even did it today?
