Banfield Pet Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin - BANFIELD SUCKS!

dont bring your pets to the banfield in Winder, Ga. They have horrible service and poor plans for your pet. they cant treat a dog, and left my dog to die. they put the IV through the neck instead of her arms."stated by the veterinary doctor my dog's veins were too small. "? this place is not a good choice for your pets. even if you dont have money, dont fall for their poor plans and services. Banfield's employee's are internships only and they are not experience. Plans are a rip ofF!! *** this clinic!! read all the reviews for your banfield locations first before you go there.

Banfield is a rip ! We enrolled both of our dogs in the well-ness plans expecting quality care at a decent price.

Wow were we surprised! Every time we brought the dogs in for scheduled care we hod out of pocket expenses. We were already paying nearly $80.00 per month and about every other month we were being called in for more "continuing care". It was always the same story " We had to do some additonal tests just to make sure all was OK" of course everything was ok but 6 trips in 12 months X an av.

of $160.00 for each visit ?? that's just way too much! Out dogs have had private Vet care all their lives and were in exceptional condition.

Even by Banfields own words "Exceptional". We cancelling our membership and telling eveyone we can about this oor excuse for a money generator for these people !

Putting an IV into the neck is one of THE best ways to get fluids into an animal; its called a central venous line. Get your facts straight *** before you talk about something that you know absolutely nothing about.

I'm sorry that you do not like your Banfield, but you are incorrect in your statements about their employees. I worked for Banfield for a time, and I am a licenses registered veterinary technician who graduated at the top of my class in a school that maintains the highest scores in the country.

The doctors I worked with were also licensed veterinarians. I have my own issues with my former employer, but this is not one of them.

Terrible Vet = Dr. Rotmistrovsky and this is why..... I took our 4yr old female dog to get a yearly chek-up and rabies vaccination. She is VERY shy and timid (adopted pound puppy). She has had the vaccination before, no problem. She has NO health issues & is in great...

I took my toy poodle to Banfield Sunday with an upset tummy. They did some initial tests found no parasites but wanted to do further tests. The initial "estimate" was $94.00 which seemed reasonable. The doctor came in and check my puppy and said they needed to do an...

Well Rocky, I guess you got one of the only useful vets that work at Banfield. They are truley horrible and do pressure their clients into un-needed test and care, knowing the clients are venerable and concerened for their animal.

I also believe they came up with the scheme of selling the harmful FIRST SHIELD flea medication, knowing it causes horrible reactions, in hopes of getting a kick back from the money owners are having to pay for their pets recovery.

I Have Banned Pet Smart, because of Banfield and so have many of my friends and family. There horrible reputation is circling and karma's a *** for those who choose to use and abuse others.

Banfield Pet Hospital in New York, New York - Banfield-First Sheild

I purchased first shield from Banfield Pet Hospital on Saturday (8/7/10) and was ready to apply the application on my 2 dogs Sunday (8/8/10) but was unsure how to administer it. I decided to go on the inter-net and get some direction but stumbled across this web page. I am going to return first shield and buy another product. I am going to return and purchase another product. I have spent a ton of money I dont have on my dogs and I can't afford an infestation of fleas. I am becoming dissatisfied with Banfield. This has been the second disappointment I have had with Banfield. Thank you for your comments.

Banfield Pet Hospital in Bellevue, Washington - Treated Unfairly and Misused Vaccination

My complaint consist of two problems. Banfield was provided a copy of my pet's shot records including up to date rabies shot yet, the veterinarian injected my pet again for rabies. My animal became very ill and I didn't realize it until I re-evaluated his shot and medical records. When I requested an explanation the vet wasn't available and did not contact me until three days later. I was treated very poorly by the staff which were sarcastic and borderline discriminating. I am very displease with Banfield and how my pet and I were treated and I am obtaining legal advise on the issues.

Took my my two bassets to Banfield in Winchester Va. They were given vaccines they didnt need even as I protested, and then I was told since I didnt appreciate the professional opinion of the vet, he was cancelling my enrollment in the wellness program and my bill was $926.38!

Had to pay or they would have me locked up and keep my dogs!

BEWARE!!! The whole corporation is a scam!!

@Tasha... what kind of response is that?!

She stated that she called after her dog was ill, and requested WHY it was given ANOTHER rabies vaccine. The dog can not speak for itself, so I think I would be a little pissy after being treated very poorly by the staff which were sarcastic and borderline discriminating. And some staff can be...

i think its part of training to put the clients off. I have had issues with new employees.

Sounds like you are more concerned about how you were treated than how ill your pet was.

took one of my shepherds to banfield 6 mths ago was told she had elbow displaysia, surgery would be 1200 or she wouldn't walk. one bottle of glucosamnie and a couple of weeks later, not even a limp to this day.

second shepherd was told he had a broken leg and if he didn't have a $1300 surgery he would never walk again. took him to another vet was told he only had a fracture and it would heal.

one week later he's walking. seems to be alot of "miracles" at my house.

If you had a heart attack, would you go to your GPs office? Or an emergency room? I don't know why it's so hard for people to relate this to animals.

I had my 3 dogs on banfield but when Coco got ill vomiting blood and mucus and I inquired about a possible gastric ulcer they repeatedly told me dogs aren't like humans and wouldn't explore that option. Instead they put her on trial after trial of different antibiotics.

End of story:Bleeding gastric ulcer and IBS and 2k plus in med bills. Banfield lost big customer and hopefully many more in hopes to save more lives!
