Thank goodness you've found a decent vet. I never fail to be amazed at some of the things vets say to clients - even the comment about a vet refusing to vaccinate at one day under 9 weeks. Manufacturers recommendations usually say from 8 weeks and some even earlier.

it took my awhile toadvs but got there in the end. this vet has 2 vets for emergencies and house calls and another 4 at the surgery. he has said they are slightly more expensive than my other vet but is happy to start an account which i pay at the end of each month so this works better for me as my other vet if i dont have the money they wont see the cat.
vet came out 9am said there was slight improvement but he wanted to take the kitten in to go on a drip and he will return her this evening so she is now being cared for by the best vet. he has phoned already to say my kitten has already made a great improvement and she can stand up for a few seconds which is more than yesterday, he has given her 80% of returning to normal.

Great news about your kitten sounds like she is in the right place. What a week you have had fingers crossed for her xx

Oh that is SUCH good news!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Three cheers for your new vet, he's a gem!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
Your old vet was SO spouting 'bullshit'!!! :evil: :evil: Being 51 & menopausal I can 'smell' 'bullshit' even via a computer screen!!LOL!!
It is SO the vaccine & his inability to cope with a wriggly kitten, that has caused the kittens to be poorly!!
A breeder friend once lost 3 out of 6 kittens, when they were given a bad batch of the 5 in 1 vaccine!! :evil: But her vet was able to get her compensation from the manufactuers!!!
I once had a litter of kittens that got a slight cold after their 1st jabs, so they had to have some ABs & wait an extra week before they could have their 2nd jabs!!
Sounds like your gem of a new vet may be able to get you some compensation too!! :mrgreen:
My vet also lets me put things on an account if I need to!! Because she knows that I struggle with money sometimes & that I will pay her as soon as I am able. She has been a 'gem' to me over the years! :mrgreen:

My vet does not do accounts .. it is pay or no treatment. which doesn't help with vaccinations. I'm pleased that the kittens are all on the mend especially the kitten with the leg problem. Penny :D

I am sooo pleased for you angelgirl, :D some vets do not know what they are doing or even as much as we do, :?
Ths vet sounds brilliant, and worth paying a bit more for a good caring vet, and good that he will let you have an account, brilliant news :D

thankyou everybody for your support, it really helps when you are going through a rough time.
just to show how great this new vet is, he phoned to tell me my kitten is coming home at 6pm and the best thing of all is he has spend hours with just her and she can walk. shes still alittle wobbly on the back legs but considering she couldnt walk yesterday great improvement and im so happy. she wont be going to her new home for a good month or so if at all but at least she can walk a little bit. :D he has also spoken to my old vet who has agreed to waive the vaccination bill and for this new vet i only need to pay for synlox £17 for the 3 kittens. i was expecting at least £100 being in the vet hospital but the vet says no its the least he can do.

Fantastic result angelgirl, I couldn't be more pleased to hear your news :D
It's amazing what a few hours on fluids can do for a sick cat, and some one on one time with the vet - he sounds brilliant, considering a day on a drip is expensive :roll:
I hope the dodgy vaccine is reported though - there might be a large batch of the same kind out there :(

They will need to report it and probably a flyer will be sent to other vets. Penny :D

Yup ......................................and it will take forever. Meanwhile other vets with the self same batch will be swearing blind to clients that they are the only one with a problem, it is just their cat and vaccines can't cause these problems :evil:
