Banfield Pet Hospital in Seattle, Washington - CHARGE FOR UNNECESSARY TREATMENTS AND/OR TEST
I have the Banfield Wellness Pet Insurance that I bought when I got my dog as a puppy. I have 3 dogs all of them at the same clinic with the "insurance". I either have the most unhealthy pets ever or they like to make up ailments that my pets do not have. At every exam I never leave without a bill, finally I got smart and refuse treatment from them. I take them to a second vet for a second oppion and usually the second vet doesn't see anything wrong with my pets. Today I was in the lobby for an extended amount of time and notice the every "Pet Insurance Holder walks out with an average bill of $80 nearly of the pets had eyes and/ear problems. And I felt sorry for these young adults that brought their recue Pit in for shots and walked out with a $478 vet bill and nothing was diagnosed or treated at that time (this was only for test).
Banfield Pet Hospital in Elmhurst, Illinois - Banfield is the worst animal hospital ever created
I took my cat to Kildeer's Banfield Hospital for a simple shot on Saturday, and it turned into a nightmare. After the vet tech harassed me, telling me I was going to be arrested if I didn't get a rabies shot for my cat right away, the "doctor" came in, half choked my cat to make him cough, then insulted me. After telling me how I was a terrible owner and how *** I was, he said he'd give him a shot "this once," and that he was doing me a favor. I told him I refused to give him any of my money after the way he treated my pet and me. He told me then to go to another hospital because he doesn't treat "people like me" at his clinic. Not only did he try to prescribe about five medications my cat didn't need, he told me to bring my cat in for two weeks straight for extremely strong steroid injections. I know from having worked at an animal hospital previously and from being a GOOD pet owner for six years that this sort of treatment would more than likely kill my cat. Not only that, but he told me that I'm a liar, that I never worked at an animal hospital, and that I am *** and don't know anything. Then he yelled at me for not getting my cat a dental and because I forgot to cut his nails before I took him there. He acted as if I neglect my cat, which isn't the case at all. This was a terrible experience, and I wanted to make you guys aware of this so the problem can be remedied. He should not be treating customers this way when all the customers are trying to do is take care of their pets to the best of their ability.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Deltona, Florida - Attitude,long wait,nonpersonal and nonprofessional
4/7/2010 Banfield Pet Hospital in South Orlando: The lady at the desk (Jenny) was not very personable, felt like she had a defensive attitude and didn't know much. Waited 45mins to see the vet who didn't even introduce himself or acknowledge my dog. Vet and vet assistants did not seem very knowledgable. Vet was not professional, telling me not to listen to his assistant because she "doesn't know anything". Overall, I was in the hospital for about an hour and a half. This was my first time at the hospital. Wasn't very impressed. Don't recommend this hospital!
Banfield Pet Hospital misdiagnosed problem and ripped me off
I took my new puppy to Banfield Pet Hospital in Columbia, Maryland for diahrrea. The vet told me he had Giardia, and put him and my other puppy on Panacur for 5 days. He told me to bring the puppy back in 3 days for a recheck. The girl in the front office told me it would cost $32.95, and it would be covered under todays visit. When I came back 3 days later, the same vet kept trying to get me to sign up for the wellness plan, before he even checked the puppy. I asked him why he didn't tell me about the plan before I spent $410.69 on the first visit. He said it was because the puppy was sick. He then told me the puppy was fine, and charged me another $67.11. (Evidently, the girl behind the desk was wrong when she told me that the visit was covered.) The puppy continued to have diahrrea, so I took him to another local vet. This vet diagnosed the problem correctly, and told me that a Giardia test is totally useless. The puppy had Coccidia, and was well within 5 days after being on Albon and Metronidazole tablets. They only charged me $131.42, and fixed the problem the first time. I am still receiving calls from Banfield at home, trying to get me to sign up for the wellness plan. NEVER in a million years!!!
Banfield Pet Hospital in Detroit, Michigan - The Product is at fault not Banfield
I used First Shield today on my 29lb puggle. She within 10 minutes starting acting funny. She became very anxious and winning within 30 minutes. At 45 minutes I bathed her and washed it off! To my shock it burnt her hair the tub was filled to the point the drain clogged. I reported the problem to the vet and to First Shield as well. Banfield was concerned and helped appropriately. First Shield seemed more concerned with telling me over and over that the EPA passed their product. When I told them there were a lot of complaints about it on the banfield site alone they did not care. Called the EPA too. To protect our pets report the problem don't just post it here! As far as Banfield I love them! Freya had no ear drums due to improper treatment at our old vet. She now after months of loving care has both back intact! Thanks!

Banfield Pet Hospital in Dallas, Texas - Banfield medication is way overpriced
I brought my kitten to Banfield for treatment of an eye infection in March 2010. I was given a 3.5 oz tube of Eythromycin Opthalmic Ointment and charged $40 for it. I thought this to be rather high, so I called a local pharmacy and the same medication was $9. I'm okay with paying more to buy my prescription at the vet, I realize they need to make money, but come on, $30 more for a $9 medication is downright unethical. I learned a good lesson, I will always call a local pharmacy to price check any prescription I get for my pets from now on. The fact that Banfield did this to me shows that they are all about the money. Unfortunately for them I will not be renewing my three wellness plans that I have for my pets, so they are now out at least $1,000 a year from me. I'm going to take my animals to a locally owned vet.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona - Banfield runs a racket type of Vet clinic.........
I went to the Tatum and Shea clinic on 03/15/10 in Phoenix AZ . My dog contracted kennel cough from a low cost clinic the week before when he had teeth removed. The Vet. Dr. Harris wanted to rule out heart worms and valley fever. She said he could be treated with a strong antibiotic for kennel cough if he did not have either of the 2, mind you this is a virus and they can not test for kennel cough. I agreed to rule out heart worms and valley fever, so $236.00 later they call me after 7 days to let me know that my dog does not have either. In the mean time he is still coughing . They said in order for me to get a persciption for him I would have to bring him back? For what, I ask he is still coughing and nothing has changed. They said is was their policy to re- check him..... I am pissed, then she says she can give me 50% off of the office visit. What is the point I ask, she says they need to see him before they can prescribe anything......I will never support Pet smart again, and definitely not take any of my animals to their clinic........
Banfield Pet Hospital in Washington, District Of Columbia - Banfield extreme overcharge for broken toe
My daughter's dog was limping on a Saturday, so we took him to Banfield to assess the problem. After 5 x-rays, they determined he had a broken toe and splinted and wrapped it. The bill?: $696.00!!!! What for? Office charge, medication, hopsital fee, wrapping materials, everyone who breezed by the room while it was happening ($43 each, about 10 of those, not kidding). It would have been more had the vet foregone charging for two of the x-rays and my daughter opted not to have blood work done to make sure the medications wouldn't cause liver damage!! After three days, the splint was out of position and we took him to our regular vet who stated that the splint was the wrong size, wrapping was done wrong, and the charge?: $50.00 Banfield is not only incompetent, but unethical, and frankly on the edge of immoral in how they treat customers. From what I can tell, the ONLY thing they are truly interested in is $$$$
