Banfield Pet Hospital in Mission Viejo, California - Lets Do a Class Action People !! My Pet was Mistreated also
In short I took my cat to a Petsmart Bandfield In Foothill Ranch Ca. He had a blood running out his mouth. The Dr. who saw him informed me she was schooled at a Animal Cancer Collage And just by "Looking" at my cat in one second of her walking threw the door told me he was dieing of cancer. No test where run, she didnt even look at him closely,only from the door way !! she made this up by just walking threw the door that he had cancer and he was not going to make it.I demanded med's , which she gave me after a 30 min ordeal.I wiped my cats mouth off in the room and took him home.His bleeding stopped and he was fine by morning and still is ! It was his tooth had broke off. I went back to talk to the Dr.. but she wouldnt see me. I asked for her report which took me 3 times of going back to get it. On the report it says nothing about cancer, It states he was in "Perfect Health" Humm where's the cancer report ? This was 6 months ago and my cat is still fine. NO cancer ! Never had it in the first place ! I asked her how this so called tumor could come up on his face with in a hour and also vanish just as fast ? She informed me cancer just works that way. When I asked to speak to her in person she was always busy yet I would see her threw the glass sitting there . She called me once to see if she could make my visit better some how .. I said NO. The reason i want to close this place down is because as i was there this little old lady came out with her dog in her arms and oaid a huge bill !! I am 10000% sure it was all un-needed..I felt so bad for her . I want this place shut down for that reason. This little old lady is who I am fighting for along with ALL the animals who also need our help. How can we ALL get together to make our stories heard ? Any idea's people ? We together can make a differance.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Deland, Florida - More info about Daytona Beach Banfield :(
On Saturday, I brought my cat in for his annual vaccinations according to his wellness plan. During the visit, my cat was diagnosed with an ear infection. He had not demonstrated any signs of this at home, no scratching his ears, redness, inflammation, or shaking his head, but I took their word for it. They poked around his ears with a q-tip then proceeded to take him to a treatment area in the back where they said they would clean his ears and give him antibiotics. Once home, he seemed ok, but as the night wore on he began to hold his head tilted to one side and started stumbling when he walked. He got so bad, he could barely walk and would not eat. I returned to Banfield the next morning and asked how my healthy cat became so sick, when the only change had been their "caring" for him....they could not explain. They said he must have an inner ear infection and they would need to run tests, etc. which are not covered by my wellness plan. They also wanted to shoot him up with more meds. Needless to say, I would not let them do anything else to him. Later that evening, I noticed my cat had gotten worse. He could not get up from the floor without falling and his eyes were jumping back and forth rapidly. I brought him to the emergency vet who told me his eardrum had been torn and there was "cleaning" fluid in his inner ear. She gave me some antibiotics and told me it may be 2-6 weeks before he gets better. Bottom line...the eardrum may never heal itself and my cat may have permanent balancing and gait problems thanks to Dr. Dutcher and the pet nurse at Daytona Beach Banfield. I have filed a former complaint and hope Banfield will have the decency to admit they screwed up..... Signed, Sad about my best friend :(
Banfield Pet Hospital in Deland, Florida - Healthy cat goes in, sick cat comes home

Needless to say, I would not let them do anything else to him and now have to find a reputable vet to fix my kitty. I cannot tell you how sad I am to watch my cat suffer, especially since I feel it is my fault for taking him to that *** vet. I must say the Banfield doctor I previously went to in Orlando was the best doctor, but I am not happy with this new one (I moved and had to switch locations). I see so many people who have sad stories about Banfield and now I am one of them. Signed, Sad about my best friend :(
We had an extremely bad experience with Banfield The Pet Hospital in Manahawkin NJ. We were initially very satisfied with Banfield, they conned me into the plan, what a waste of money that was. The 3 cats contracted a skin disorder, and after hundreds of dollars to...
Banfield Pet Hospital in Houston, Texas - My daughter's puppy died from negligence at banfield
my daughter's 7 week puppy died due to negligence at the NW Freeway Houston,Tx Banfield location. The vet gave our puppy a prescription that was too strong for him. same day came home followed orders given,then our puppy started to cry,layed there on the floor didn't want to get up or eat. we called the location scared,and the vet wouldn't even come to the phone,got transfered around were told to rinse again,and wait for three days to see if ok. I even went to the location to find out what was to happen,just sent me away,and our puppy didn't even make it for the 3rd day. i called to let them know,they wanted me to take the puppy in to get a optopsy at our expense,and to top it off they told me i was 1 day late to cancel my wellness plan. now i'm stuck paying for a whole year and without my puppy. no customer service,no manager, no wellness line,and no corporate supervisor is gonna give us our dog back and neither our money! So watch out this is not a good pet hospital and they don't care.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Houston, Texas - Banfield overpriced. Shop around first.
We are victims of the wellness program. The primary thing that this is good for is getting you the doctor so that they can do procedures that are not on the plan. While many procedures may be needed, it seems others are just extra revenue for Banfield. Be careful about the 10% discount... Banfield has proven to be 40-70% higher than independent vets in our area. We had a procedure quoted at Banfield for $845.00 which a good independent vet did for $211.00. We are cancelling our wellness program as it is just a tool of profit for Banfield. Please do your homework on Banfield before handing over your cash.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Long Valley, New Jersey - Banfield could've save my lab if they would have done x-ray
Last December I took my 9 mo lab in because he could not keep food down. I repeatedly told them he would eat clothing and needed to be checked for that. Instead of x-rays, we need to draw blood, fecal test, etc. I told them I didn't have the money to be doing all those test. I was told he had pancreatitis after the blood work. Next day brought back. Now they had a test to see if it was pancreatitis, another charge. a couple of days later he gets diagnosed with intestinal gastritist. After 10 days and my puppy is loosing so much weight and can't keep food down, they finally do xrays. this was after telling them repeatedly he eats things. He chewed through Iv in the kennel. on New's Eve I was refered to another hospital cause they were closing. They did x-rays and the vet told me he had swallowed clothing. if it's panty hose it would not be good. They started surgery and his intestine had ruptured. Panty hose were found. It was not good and he had to be put down. If they would have x-rayed him that first day, my puppy would still be alive. Now they don't want to compensate for all the cost, plus they are still billing me monthly for him after I asked them to cancel...... i don't recommend Banfield nor will I ever go there. Looking for a lawyer that will take the case against Banfield. It won't return my baby but it would help with the unnessary cost and heart ache I went through spending New Years Eve in the waiting room of a hospital and to have to put my baby down was so hard.
After buying a full blooded Persian Cat we decided to take her to Banfield to complete the required shots. Of course we were pressured every time to buy their wellness plan. We knew that we would eventually get her declawed, so we went with plan. We dropped her off...
I have spent roughly 870.00 to have my healthy puppy get his shots, worming meds and neutering from Banfield. On each routine visit I was given the hard sell by the Nurse after the vet left the room where they would go on to tell me the additional charges associated...
Banfield Pet Hospital in Manteca, California - Banfield Doesn't honor the Vet's Oath
Banfield hospital has proved time and time again that they do not believe or follow the Vet's Oath. We have set up a site that you can join to fight Banfields poor practices. Feel free to make suggestions as to what should be included in this future Class Action Suit naming Banfield as a defendant. Help be a part of the change and make Banfield take their well deserved blame for letting many pets suffer and even die, over charge for medical plans, etc etc. Banfield Pet Hospital is completely corporate and does not believe in serving animals health as a first priority.
