Banfield Pet Hospital in Columbia, South Carolina - Banfield Pet
We carried a very sick puppy into Banfield this morning at 9am. We were afraid that she had gotten dehydrated the evening before in the hot afternoon. We checked back in at 12:30 pm and were told that it would be another 4 hours before we could pick up our puppy. I asked if anything had been done yet and the lady at the desk said no. Sophie sat in a cage for 3 and a half hours while no one bothered to even start her treatment. We took her out of there that moment. I do not think that I have ever been into that Banfield without coming out PISSED.
I took my pom to Banfield in Largo, Maryland for her vaccines only to come home months later to find pups in her crate. Unfortunately, she was not neutered because she was NEVER around any other dogs. When I called Banfield afterwards, they thought it was funny. ...
Banfield Pet Hospital in Athens, Georgia - Neither waste your money nor your time!
So my problem was actually a few years back when I was about 17. My mother was super busy with work and all and so she left it up to me to take my then 2-year old cat, Momo, to the vet. So I chose Banfield, because they had the wellness program, which was if you brought your animal in a certain date, between certain time the office visit itself would free. I took my cat the vet because we'd suspected that she'd been bitten by a spider or something while in the garage and there was something wrong with her eye. So we took her in, told them what happened. The staff were unprofessional, and the vet DID NOT know what she was doing. She said some antibiotics should help so we paid nearly $100 for some medicine that did absolutely nothing. And when I went back in to tell them the medicine had not worked, they suggested they scrape her eye, but that was nearly $200. So we didn't go through with it. They gave us racked up charges for medical waste, or whatever. This was all in 2009 - 2010, fast-forward to 2012, and if we hadn't taken other precautions my cat's eye would still be as bad as it was then. Bottom line, don't waste your time, or your money.

Banfield Pet Hospital in Danbury, Connecticut - BANFIELD HAS AN APPOLLOGY FOR ALL
I'VE BEEN READING ALL THESE COMPLAINTS ABOUT BANFIELD ANIMAL HOSPITAL. HOW CAN THESE PEOPLE LIVE WITH THEMSELVES AFTER WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO ALL THESE ANIMALS. PEOPLE COULD NOT MAKE UP ALL THESE STORIES ABOUT ONE PLACE. ALL BANFIELD CAN EXPRESS IN ALL THEIR COMMENTS IS HOW SORRY THEY ARE FOR YOUR LOSE. THE PEOPLE HAVE TO DEAL WITH THE MISS DIAGNOSIS AND THE DEATH OF THEIR PET LIKE THEY KILLED THEM BY LISTENING TO THE DOCTORS AT BANFIELD, DOING EXACTLY WHAT BANFIELD TOLD THEM TO DO AND THEN THEIR BELOVED PET DIES AND THEY FEEL LIKE THEY KILLED THEM. I HOPE BANFIELD LOSES THEIR LICENSE TO PRACTISE BECAUSE THEY ARE THE REASON ALL THESE BELOVED PETS DIE. DON'T THINK THAT BANFIELD HAS THE ONLY MEDICAL COVERAGE FOR YOUR PET BECAUSE I LEARNED THERE IS OTHER OPTIONS AT REAL VETS THAT CAN HELP IN THE PAYMENT FOR MEDICAL CARE.
Banfield Pet Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland - Unprofessional and sneaky
I took my yorkie poo to banfield because I suspected he had an ear infection. I spoke to a girl over the phone and knowing it was my first time going she told me I had to pay $45 bucks for the office visit knowing that they have a promotion to waive that fee for a new customer. I shouldnt have to correct her to get what I should have gotten in the first place so that already annoyed me. Then they tried to force me to get *** done that I didn't even come in for and charge almost 400 in vaccinations. They made me feel unfit for being 3 mths late on shots. Then the doc kept being shrude and very impersonal with me. How did I end up being. Charged 110 for gettin drops for my dogs ears?? Heck if I know. They are worse than a repair shop raping u with ridiculous fees. 50 bucks to put a qtip in my dogs ear, and 50 for some *** ear drops? How ludicrous and a rip off. I didn't buy their meds and got it cheaper elsewhere. Try 12 bucks for the same stuff they tried to charge 50 for.. Crooks!
Banfield could improve their services. More knowledgeable vets / staff with compassion & maturity. Believe in their customers & animals, do what they say & put up signs that tell people they R being video taped. They need 2 let people B with their pets in appointments...
I took my 14 year old cat to see the vets at Banfield in July of 2010 because he had been losing weight. As a lay person, I expect a veterinarian to be transparent and forthcoming about all of my options; not with negativity either but what should be done. I expressed...
Banfield Pet Hospital in Pittsburg, California - BANFIELD. PLEASE HAVE SOME COMPASSION. THATS ALL IM BEGGING FOR. My Baby died after teeth cleaning!!
My cat Passed away under the care of Banfield. I called today to cancel my wellness plan...The representative said regardless if he died or not I still have to pay the balance of the "preventative care" Of 300.00. What's thw point of Wellness care when he's not longer with us!? Paying hundreds Out of pocket wasn't enough. And the 135. To put him to sleep! How fair is it to pay for this when he has passed away!? In Feb he was seen for a sprained paw. He recieved clavamox and torodol. He was defecating as normal. He finished his meds and we made an appt for a teeth cleaning. (He seemed so much better after the meds) and all his blood work was normal.. On March 5 he had a teeth cleaning. 5 days later we went in for a recheck and the fact he wasn't defecating since his cleaning. The dr. Said nothing. I told her what should we do about him not going. She basically shrugged her shoulders and said nothing. So 2 days later I go to concord Banfield to get a 2nd opinion about him not going BM.. The dr was so rude! I heard her tell a staff in the back "I gave her my advice, he needs xrays and she doesn't want to do anything for him!" So she prescribed Laxatone. I gave him that as prescribed everyday. Still no BM. (10th day or so now) So, I go to a whole new vet. I tell her everything. She xrays his tummy and finds a Major blockage in his small intestine. She said in order for him to live he needs surgery Asap. (It was horrible! His entire tummy was a Mess!) On Sunday(yesterday)I went to banfield to put him to rest. (He was in so much pain, I couldn't let him suffer anymore) The vet xrayed his tummy and said it was in fact very severe, She agreed it was the best choice. I just spoke to banfield and made a formal complaint. Our new vet said it was Highly likely the anestesia and cleaning Or meds played a Big part in his blockage....which in turn he had to rest. I should be able to rest my heart and not be forced to pay for my babys bill when its so possible what killed him. THAT'S ALL I'M ASKING FOR. I WANT TO JUST DROP IT AND MOVE ON.
Do Not Visit Banfield Pet Hospital
Do not go to Banfield Pet Hospital. They refuse to medically treat your pet in a timely manner. They gave my pet medication that was toxic to him and almost killed him. Find a veterinarian that is AAHA accredited. You will spend the same amount of money and your pet will live a longer, happier life. This is an unacceptable veterinarian clinic. It is a shame that they are a nationwide chain, many people go to them on a daily or weekly basis with no idea that they are simply a money factory. The animal rights attorney I spoke with told me that the majority of the cases she deals with are due to Banfields constant mistakes.
