  • life flippen sucks

    Can life get any worse. My 6 month new puppy that replaced the very old 14 year old one gets parvo. I have never dealt with this disease before and it just plain sucks. The worst is the Vet charged me $969.15 to make him better with no guarentee he will not die anyway. I just used my police academy money to bury my mom and and managed to save enough to replace what i spent on funaeral costs. Finally of today which was payday had enough to pay for academy costs and the vet took it all. Whatever happened to doctors that helped out of a love for animals and humans? I know they are out there somewhere. I wasn't asking for free vet help just to pay in 3 payments and she straight up told me thats not the way its done. You pay in advance and up front the whole amount or we can't help. I had to decide if i wanted him put to sleep or did i want to try and save him. Of course as i am crying my eyes out i agree to give up the last little bit of money i managed to scrape together. Plus i have to bedside vigil the puupy for the next three days to a week. Hoping and praying he doesn't die. And work 50-60 hours a week. How does a person survive such crap??? I feel like i will never get ahead.

    I really feel for you. My wife's dog had parvo when it was a puppy, and it was really sick too Fortunately, it survived with no ill effects, in fact, it's a wonderful dog. So I hope your puppy can come through with no problems like my wife's dog. I am a HUGE animal person, and I hate it when they are sick. I will be thinking about your puppy (and about your tough times, too! ).

      2 of my current dogs survived parvo(6 years old, now). They'd already begun the series of 3 shots when they contracted it.

      As for 'life's unexpected expenses', I don't think those of us that WORK for a living EVER 'get used to them'.

      This summer alone, I've had to shell out well over $1000 for 'unexpected' auto expenses on NEW cars. (3) flats(catostrophic sidewall failures in 2 cases.) GoodYear WON'T be getting any more of MY $$$...(1) aluminum wheel on a 2001 Mustang...and a new windshield on my 2001 truck.

      Hang in there.....

        I really don't know what to say here. I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time of it.

        And yes, sometimes life DOES suck. But then it gets better again.

          ftrphxcop, you are learning what life is about. I used to think life was so unfair. My son got sick, I got a slut for a daughter-in-law, my H lost his job of 25 years, it took me 2 years to get enough money to pay our part of our sons brain surgery because my H's brother took all of an $800,000 estate, we were told our son could have his miracle surgery, then told he couldn't, my H has to travel 3 to 4 days a week, I'm having health problems because of all the stress.
          But, I try to look at it this way....There is ALWAYS someone who has it worse, always.
          As God said, "Some things in life will be good, not all things will, but some things will".
          You have your family,ftrphxcop. Your kids are healthy. I know your wanting to be a cop is affecting your mariage but only you can decide what happens there.
          There isn't a day I don't look at my son and THANK GOD he is still with me.
          So, try to find the positives.....and get a different vet. I would have called around and asked one that would accept payments. I know my vet would have let me pay what I could when I could.
          Money is usually the bottomline but the REAL thing in life is family, ftrphxcop. Think of the positives, honey. It may not seem like there are many but there are.

            Sorry to hear about you troubles FT. But look at it from this aspect. Everything happens for a reason and you will never get more than you can handle. I think you puppy will be fine and something good will come out of all of this. Once you get through the academy you will look back on all of this and realize that because of this you are a much stronger person and you have more experiances to help you through other stages in your life.

              You can never enjoy the truly great things about life if you never experiance the negative aspects of it too.

              Just remember nothing is permanent, and things'll change for the better.

              As for the doctors... It's not easy being a doctor these days, I know where I live, they can barely afford to live because insurance is soooooo astronomical, even though California does place a limit on it.

                Yeah, it must be damn rough to have to go from driving a Rolls, all the way down to a Mercedes or a Jag. My heart bleeds for them.

                  Do you have enough for the academy now? I hope so. I want to see you in the academy and bitching about your instructors like all the rest of us.

                    Thanks guys, I tried for the financial aid thing since its set up at the college. And upon filing the paperwork she about laughed herself to death.( ok, i am exaggerating) but it sure sounded like laughing to my broke butt. Anyways i make to much to get anything. So i refinanced a signature loan i had and got the money i needed. At least once i get thru i get reimbursed. It must be meant to be. Countin the days till i get screamed at, ran to death and get that badge.

                    BTW, First puppy made it thru and the second one is sick now, but i can handle it. Next the world.

                      I worked for a vet in high school, and I saw first hand how hard it was to collect money for services rendered when an animal dies.

                      $900+ seems WAY out of line for parvo treatment though!!!! Basically all the vet is going to do is give it lots of IV treatment to fight dehydration and some shots for the diareah. There is no way it should cost $900 for that.
