I have a question for everyone
Posted 22 May 2012 - 09:17 PM
My question....Can anyone find a time I gave medical information without saying "contact your vet" in some manner? Any time I have given advice as a Vet tech instead of a "friend with experience"?
I really try to not give actual medical advice. That is improper and against my professional standards. I have been wracking my brain trying to find an instance where I gave advice that has hurt a pet alone killed a pet...Especially when I thought that pet needed medical treatment. I will say "I think X may be the problem" but, I think I always say "talk to your vet"....am I wrong? Have I hurt a pet here?
I know I have contradicted advice given by others when I felt that advice was improper. I have given examples of what I have done with my own pets and what I seen sometimes at work. I don't think I have given misleading information or said "do this".
Sorry......this is REALLY bothering me. It is one of the reasons I can no longer offer my opinions. I wish I didn't have to stop but, I do. I still don't believe it is anyone on m2m. M2M is one of the very few places I offer advice though. It is because I trust people on here and want to help.
A good friend of mine is trying to get her hands on the email that was sent. I have also messaged a few of my acquaintances in some of the local rescue groups and my friends involved in pure-bred dog show and obedience. I have 2 people involved with rescue organizations helping me track down who is doing this. Tomorrow I will be pursuing more avenues.

Thanks all...Vals. I am, at this point planning on legal action. I also don't think the person quite understands who they are dealing with. I may not be "involved" with rescues but, I know a lot of people who are. I also am active in the dog training and showing community around here. I don't think this person knows how intertwined these 2 groups of people are and that if you mess with one of us you may be messing with the rest. I know a lot more people than most realize. This is the type of thing that even some of my more distant acquaintances will step up and help me with!
This area has a huge rescue ring and we are ALL intertwined, not just rescue groups, but veterinarians, pet educators, trainers, clinic employees, pet supply retailers and registered breeders. Its definitely not a group you want to start a battle with or make false allegations about.
