I am in 100% in agreement with you on this. Too many people are hesitant in talking about their supposed "failures" in fear that they may not come off as knowing what they are doing. But, it takes someone with a good level of knowledge, confidence, maturity and professionalism to be willing to share these types of situations (I know I have on MANY occasions both on these forums and with other colleagues)....it is through the sharing of information, in our trials, tribulations and triumphs, that true knowledge is attained. I printed out your other post as I think it contained a TON of excellent information and detailed observations that will help many other people, like myself, down the road. I am personally appreciative for the level of detail you provided....not an easy thing to do after you just lost one of your prized animals (and I am really sorry to hear that...we just lost our 25 year old V. albigularis who was like family to me).
:I will get my dates straight..Best times, size&weight data, temps etc for ya'll..As well as the rest of the info my vet gathers from his colleagues and the autopsy...I think this type of experience is probably more important for us to discuss/dissect than are our triumphs...
:So if any one else has a bad experience, swallow your pride and give up the info...It doesn't mean we're "bad" keepers of our entrusted Dry's(NO ONE HAS SUGGESTED THIS)...I will admit, it takes a bit to want to put the failure out to the whole world of Dry enthusiasts, that "I" let a gravid girl die, either thru action or inaction, but if we don't then someone else may make a mistake that could have been avoided by sharing our +/- experience....Carl (feeling a little better) "Dryguy"
