I just found a good vet who unfortunately charges for an exam too but his hospital is the one we liked most; and they will even ship her blood correctly to the HEMOPET lab and pay them too; it all cost about 180 bucks but we decided to go with it as I can't stand the suspense any longer. April, do you know what kind of donation the lab folks expect? I can probably put a couple of bucks up extra for it if it's OK for them. We barely have money to move :-( ourselves and Yume.
Thank you for advice, same goes to other ladies and gentlemen on this great forum. Yume has been OK this last two weeks. I watch her like a hawk though. I play a lot with her, use a lot of motivational exercises, no off-leash romping for awhile, my hubby bought some lavender oil and I wear it -it calms her down. I also bought some of that Bach's calming solution stuff for dogs-it actually helps her but I only use that for most stressful situations. I don;t want to fully rely on supplements. I really want to know the results of that test.
We are moving at the very end of this month, and I really hope she can go with us.I know it has been neverending stress for her with all our moves, and I think it also contributed to her setbacks regardless of her temperament issues. ironically, when we booked the tickets she was supposed to travel in the cabin with me as a service dog and I already taught her to curl up under seats (she likes it) and some other useful things, and now it's too late for us to ship her so we would have to proceed with a previous plan I guess. As I probably mentioned, she does know a lot of things like picking up objects, bracing me, etc., we even have strings on door handles and she loves to open the doors (purely positive training for this and for retrieves and she never fails at it), but it's all just a bunch of wonderful tricks in the face of her sudden mood swings. it pains me to think how smart and awesome she is and how her past life constantly bites us in the *ss. I mean, she barely knew her backside from her head when we got her and behaved like a feral animal and it was like wresting Incredible Hulk every day with her, I do think we've gone a long way with her but never far enough to get rid off all the demons in her mind.
