Banfield Pet Hospital - 1 year old dog died during neutering
Freddy was exactly one year old when i took him into Banfield in Midtown, Miami to get neutered.I picked him up after his surgery, and the doctor told me that during surgery, his heart rate went a little low but she brought it back up and finished surgery.
One week later, he had a pretty bad infection around his ball skin. It looked like his skin was falling off and things just did NOT look good. I took him back in right away and they told me surgery to remove the skin is the best option. I told them about his heart rate issue and they said they were aware.
I trusted them to go ahead and do the surgery. I get a phone call during surgery to get over to the hospital immediately. i did. They then came in the room after trying to revive him and told me he didn't make it.
They had no idea why. There was no explanation. They said they did all the steps for resuscitation but nothing worked. It sounded like they were looking at a book to read step-by-step instructions.
I am going to sue. I had the best, healthiest and happiest dog and they took him away from me. For no reason at all.
A simple procedure killed my dog.They DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
