Banfield Pet Hospital in Orange Park, Florida - Banfield are worse than car and gym sales people combined!!
I took my dog into one of their locations because it was the weekend and my dog was vomitting and passing blood! Quite alarming! I asked the associate at the counter if there was anything over the counter I could give. She said no and offered me a free appointment with the vet. After the appointment the vet tried to get me to buy over $400 in diagnostics! I talked him down to $130. The script included some pills so I asked an associat where I could find the little pill sleeves to help him take the pills. She pointed them out to me and on the same shelf I Then as I found basically Doggie Pepto Bismal for less than $10. SCAMMMERS!!!!
Banfield Pet Hospital in Raleigh, North Carolina - I need a vet that knows what thay are doing
Payment was cancled once already with banfield. I thought I would give them another chance.My GS was constipated and dehydrated and had full anal glands.If a dog has never had anal gland problems and then surface out of the blue it means something else triggered it.I knew what was wrong before bringing her in to banfield.They failed me again.The "vet" talked me into a 53.00 bottle of antibiotics which made the problem worse.They never said she was dehydrated and impacted after everything I told them.I drove to wallgreens and purchased an enima kit and gave her an enima myself.There was a dramatic improvement after 2 hrs,,,I gave her a 2nd one 4 hrs later and she is back to herself again.(((no more anal gland problems!!!)))What am I paying these people for!!To all of you that say (stop complaining) I didnt write this because i enjoy complaining its true and I can prove it.I am 51 and have more knowledge about dogs than any of these greenhorns. ps....If you choose to run a company and dont know what you are doing choose another one or get out of it!
Save yourself money and aggravation by not being suckered into subscribing to this plan. Their "out of plan" prices are incredibly overpriced, which makes you think you are getting a bargain to join the plan. There are always extra charges when you bring your pet in....
Banfield Pet Hospital in Colorado Springs, Colorado - Banfield wellness plans are a scam, veterinary care is poor
I signed up for the Banfield wellness plans for my pets because I don't have a lot of money, and they told me that my pets needed extensive care. More than two years later, after telling me that they cancelled those plans, they're still withdrawing the money from my account AND sending me threatening letters saying I owe them hundreds of dollars. For what? I ended up paying more in fees for services not used than I would have for the services I did use. Furthermore, it's virtually impossible to contact Banfield to resolve any issues. I'm on hold with them right now and I have been for half an hour, and I've been trying to contact them for months. I haven't taken my pets there for over a year. I went to a different vet who told me that not only did Banfield give my dog shots he didn't need, they recommended a fairly expensive medicine that he didn't need and was hard on his system. Banfield vets aren't very experienced or very good. From my experience, I would say that the company exists to trick you into signing up for their plans and then make it impossible for you to quit.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Orlando, Florida - Fool me thrice.....
#1 I take my pup for a series of shots, I go to pick him up and they handed me my pet and failed to notice he was having an allergic reaction. I had to inform them to rush him for an injection of antihistimine. #2 Next series of shots they cut him when shaving him & he he favored the cut for a month. It was in the leg joint area so it would not heal well since he moves the joint to walk. #3 they charged me for wellness plan for a year. I try to cancel early but the guy on phone tells me to pay for the last few months cause I am due a well check right before my plan expires so I pay for the 2 additional months. I schedule the well visit as instructed but then at well visit then tell me I missed deadline for well check by ONE day and need to renew and pay for another whole year to get the visit covered. I call the Wellness Plan Co. and they now say I already had my 2 well checks that year and the first guy was wrong. so why did I pay for the last few months? No offer of refund or anything!
Banfield Pet Hospital in Kansas City, Kansas - First shield bad reaction
Hi i am just writing this because my baby girl had a terrible reaction to this nasty product. I got some because i saw one flea and its been down hill since... 24 hours after applying it my dog got mean itching like crazy peeing on herself and throwing up i didn't know what to do so i washed her asap in dish soap. She is a 10lb 1yr old cockapoo in great health we feed her good food and then this so i freaked made my husband take her to ban-field who told him he would have to pay for the visit, after my pup had a reaction to the meds the suggested!!! i was furious so i called the drug company and some one called some one and my Marie got in for a visit. They gave us antihistamines and said only the 1 skin crawling itching and 2 red skin were from the flea treatment. They then tried to talk my husband into getting a urine sample for 70 bucks when two days ago my pup was A-OK. i told him to come home we would take her for a second opinion. So we did and the vet said it was all a bad reaction to the meds including the vomiting and lose of bladder control. I then called drug company and they stuck to what they said first time is topical there is no way it could effect anything but her skin. MY *** now i have to give her this med for a whole month and hope the damage isn't gonna stay with her. PLEASE DONT USE THIS FLEA TREATMENT AND IF YOU HAVE AND YOU SEE ANY OF THESE SIGNS CALL YOUR VET ASAP

Banfield Pet Hospital in Clayton, North Carolina - Banfield is a Rip off
I recently got a puppy for my birthday. As a responsible dog owner the 1st thing I did was enroll her in Banfields puppy wellness plan. Everytime I take her she throws up after her shots. I talked to the vet about this and she said I should try a bendryal shot which they could give her for $19 of course I jumped on this. I didnt want my puppy throwing up...... we get in the car to go home and what happens??? She throws up the whole way home, when I called and complained about this they said it was stress and nothing they could do. I took her back to get her spayed and of course the stress of going there raised her blood sugar. The pre-op blood work then cost me $87.03 because now they had to send her blood to out to check for diabetes. Then they want me to come back and have the EXACT SAME BLOOD TESTb done again for aa additional $60+. This company is the biggest mistake I EVER made. BEWARE and take your animal some where else!!!!!!!!
Banfield Pet Hospital in Chicago, Illinois - Beware of Banfield Animal Clinics
The vets and techs at Banfield were great, but the corporation is a mess. Once a dog is signed into a Banfield annual membership program, the corporation make it impossible to cancel. First you have to try and get a living person. Then he/she will agree to cancel as your year is almost over, but don't do so. Membership renews automatically, then Banfield wont cancel it because its an annual memebership - even though the dog died ! They send creditors after you demanding payment for each year even though its been 3 years since our dog died. AVOID BANFIELD AT ALL COSTS,THIS PLACE IS A BOOK KEEPING NIGHTMARE.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio - I felt like I was getting my car's oil changed...
when I took my 12 year old Jack Russell to Banfield today for a routine check up, they brouht me a bill for almost $650. I felt like I was getting my oil changed. Pick and choose what services you want to a valued member of your family. My little guy was upset enough to be there and shaking on the table, and I was faced with the decision of them making me feel guilty because I didn't take all of their "recommended" items in treating him. When I have taken him to a real vet in the past, all I had to do was tell them that I brought him in for a check up and they took it from there...here they expected me to pick and choose the treatments he received...I will never take him back there or recommend them to anyone else. A consumer shouldn't have to choose services...they let him sit there upset while they kept bringing me "updated" bills, always lower...I don't feel they care about animals, they are more interested in "selling different, individualized items" than they are in caring for your pet...
