Hi Dr Salkin,
I have noticed my replies are on public page. I rather not disclosure further details unless confidentiality is attained. Main due to the data I wish to share only with a professional, is there anyway of authenticating my contact source as it has been on my mind that I am unsure if the recipient is the identified person and is genuinely that person.
Thank you XXXX.
I have been trying to ensure that my questions are kept in undisclosed to ensure confidentiality for Louis and I.
I just need to consult his notes to get you to view them. My questions once you view them now are regarding the thoroughness of his course of treatment.The vet performed an abdomincentesis, and did note abdo tense? In notes. I assume the ? was as he asked me if his stomach was more rounded and tense. I was aware was, but said did not want to mislead him at the time so said neither yes or no. Does this mean I faulted my dog, unintentionally, in getting the correct path of diagnostic treatment? Or does it mean he still investigated the question he posed to me, which I failed to give an answer yes or no. He did also perform xrays conscious ones, but no ultrasound which I feel was wrong as he states Louis was walking around after thirty mins of the drip. He discharged him afterwardsafter four and a half hours with caution and advice to send him to night vetif Louis worsened or he became of any concern.
Was this test, abdomincentesis test due to the "abdo tense?" remark? Would this conclude the question, hence the test performed to satisfy the suspicion? The yes came back negative, Louis, did not get an ultrasound but the mentioned xrays. Why not? As emergency vets were later sought and they performed an abdominocentesis test which was positive. I feel earlier vet did not scientifically probe enough to conclude, he asked if was firmer, tense but I said not wanting to say as wanted him to decide and invesigate as he would know best. However, emergency vet hours later asked no questions and diagnosed Louis and positively concluded from abdominocentesis test. Earlier vet did not, Louis was carried into the earlier vet close to death, but walked into night vet not carried in and looked better but not recovered. Louis was collapsed at home and I believe first vet should have gained positive abdominocentesis test, is it possible he was incompetent on his attempt? As lab results for his blood tests stated sample was poorly collection and needed another attempt, again is this normal for vets to do this. Is he unable? I need to send the notes, to you by post I need help on this, you probably have an idea on what I am saying. I want to keep this by post now if possible, please I can pay for all your expert time and advice, let me know for costs on answers. I cannot inform anymore online I can post 10 pages of findings. If you can answer the questions I send on the notes that would be excellent. I can send payments to PayPal accounts or post cheques. If you feel you can answer fully and help me gain my answers s Tha would be great the vet is not cooperating, he only cooperates now and then and does not answer the questions most of the time. Only answering the questions he wants and not them all.
Hope you can see I am only trying to establish he got the best course of the treatment and want to piece all bit by bit. You will see everything you need on the posted notes and this kept between us.
