I have a Pug named Rocky Balboa. Keep in mind each surgery carries a risk of complications and death with it. He was neutered in May 2006, so he has no testicles. One day I noticed his bag was full of something that felt like one, so I took him to the vet.Damn. In September 2006 he was diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. He needed surgery to fix it so his intestines would not go into his scrotum and get knotted causing death. No problem, I swallowed the $1400 vet bill and got it fixed because I love my dog like a child. They told me it was an emergency and needed to be done right away, so it was. It was very painful for him and took about a good 2 weeks to fully recover. Fast forward to December 2007. I feel the same thing in his bag again. So take him back and sure enough, he has the same thing again . So once again I swallow the $1400 vet bill to get it fixed, hopefully for the last time. Two days after the surgery, I still feel the mass. So I go back and say WTF? They tell me it is swelling. A week after that I call the surgeon and explain what I am feeling in his bag. She tells me it is A) Fluid accumulation or B) Fatty tissue left over from the surgery floating in his bag. I think bullshit, but give them the benefit of the doubt. Two weeks later I am convinced there is something wrong. I take him in and get a different vet to look at it (7 different ones work there). He goes with the fat in the bag story, but I know it is more. About 3 weeks after that I take him back again to a different vet, she tells me she has no idea and tells me to go to another clinic for a sceond opinion. I go to the Hernia specialist at the other clinic yesterday, and guess what he tells me, he needs the surgery again (another $1400), and not only that, he tells me that the whole time it may have been a scrotal hernia. So now I am pissed. The first place has totally ripped me off and kept sending me away when I insisted something was wrong. I feel I should get my money back for the second hernia. What do I do?
