Hi. My name is Bailey. I was a healthy, 12 pound pure bred Maltese living in a wonderful home for 8 years with plenty of love and everything I ever needed. My parents took me to the doctor at Banfield in Pet Smart, Saratoga Springs, NY, to get some flea medicine for...
Banfield Pet Hospital in Washington, District Of Columbia - Stay away from Banfield if you care about your pet
I brought my healthy, happy Boston Terrier into Banfield on Saturday for a routine teeth cleaning and what I picked up was a verrrrry sick dog. Brought him back on Tuesday since he was still so sick and all they wanted to do was to pad the bill. Finally went to see a "real" vet yesterday and after a complete exam, Xrays and injections, he is on the road to recovery. So much for the savings on the Wellness Plan--like I said, if you care about your furry companion--Stay away!!!!!!Please pass this along so that other pets don't suffer like mine did.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Tampa, Florida - It was all about the money.
I took my cat to Banfield because he stopped eating and was very lethargic. The vet checked his temp and did a visual exam. She could not tell me what was wrong with him but went on to discuss all the horrid, terminal things it could be. This was in front of my eleven year old daughter. After the vet had us both in tears, she said blood work needed to be done at the additonal cost of $250 (the fee was already up to $185). While I love my cat, I just did not have that kind of money. After questioning the vet further, I found out that the immediate treatment would be the same whether or not the cat had an incurable disease or a simple stomach-ache. I tearfully made the decision to pass on the blood work and hope for the best. My cat was fine after three days of forced feedings and antibiotics. I look back and realize the vet was just trying to get the extra fees from me - with no regard for my or my daughter's feelings. Simply a horrible experience! I'll never go back.

I put First Shield Trio on my 13-year-old Standard Poodle for the first time last night, and this morning (about 12 hours later) she started acting EXTREMELY distraught. I did not know what was wrong with her, other than the fact that I thought she was afraid because...
My dog was having a severe skin problem. I wouldn't refill her prescription without an appointment. I took her in and they wouldn't help her without charging me a HUGE amount of money. They wanted to charge me for things she didn't even need. I had to agree to buy...

I took my dogs in for a worm check and to get their nails trimmed. They wouldn't even tough my male, as he has issues with getting his nails trimmed, but they obviously don't work on dogs, or any other animals, that have any issues. They were the ones that gave him...
Took our 10 year old cat for Banfield's "routine" exam on April 18, 2011. Stupidly, we had bought into their "health plan" ten years ago. We brought our cat home Monday night. That night he staggered, fell down, howled, seemed disoriented and was unable to eat. ...
