Banfield Pet Hospital in Chandler, Arizona - BANFIELD KILLED MY ROCCO
Update by user Apr 04, 2012
AFTER ROCCO DIED I WENT TO BANFIELD HOSPITAL AND COMPLAINED ABOUT THE CARE THEY HAD GIVEN HIM AND ALSO INSISTED THAT THEY TELL ME THE RESULTS OF HIS SKIN GRAPH THAT THEY HAD TAKEN THE FIRST TIME ROCCO WAS SEEN,FEB. 18th BY THEM. MIND YOU IT TAKES USUALLY AT LEAST THREE TO FOUR WEEKS FOR A SKIN GRAPH RESULTS TO COME BACK I WAS TOLD WHEN THEY TOOK IT. THEY INFORMED ME THAT IN ONLY FIVE DAYS THE GRAPH HAD COME BACK POSITIVE TO RINGWORM AND THAT IS WHY THEY HAD PERSCRIBED THE RINGWORM TREATMENT.
MONDAY, APRIL 2nd I RECIEVED A CALL FROM THE EMERGENCY CLINIC WHO LAST TREATED ROCCO. (DERMITOLOGY SPECIALIST) THEY WANTED TO JUST LET ME KNOW THAT THE SKIN GRAPH THEY TOOK FROM ROCCO ON MARCH 1st HAD COME BACK NEGATIVE FOR RINGWORM. THIS TEST TOOK THE FOUR WEEKS TO PROCESS A RESULT, THE TIME ALLOTTED FOR AN ACCURATE READING.
NOW I KNOW THAT BANFIELD LIED TO COVER THEIR OWN MISTAKE AND I AM STILL LEFT FEELING LIKE I KILLED MY DOG BY DOING WHAT THE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED. I\'M HAVING A VERY HARD TIME EXCEPTING ALL OF THIS AND ROCCO\'S BROTHER IS FEELING LOST TOO.
Original review posted by user Mar 04, 2012On February 17th 2012 I was sitting in my chair petting Rocco my 6 year old chihuahua. I noticed a four little raised areas on the side of his neck and got concerned. On February 18th I took him to BANFIELD MEDICAL FACILITY to have him looked at. Banfield took a blood sample for testing, skin graph and told me Rocco had some kind of allergy to something he ate or something outside. They perscribed an atibiotic, a medicated shampoo and sent us home. February 19th I called BANFIELD back because now there was a rash area on Rocco's stomach. Rocco was itching at it. Banfield told me that was to be expected and to continue with the antibiotic and shampoo. February 22nd I took Rocco back to BANFIELD because he was a mess. Hair was falling out all over his body, he was itching all the time, shaking, and had open sores on his ears, mouth and parts of his body. BANFIELD now said Rocco had ring worm and perscribed pills, continue the antibiotic, shampoos, and perscribed a accidic spray to aplly daily to his skin. February 27th I took Rocco to Awautukee Hospital. He was bleeding for the ears, nose and eyes. Awautukee Animal Hospital kept him a day and then he went to Arizona Emergency Internal Medicine Facility where after much fight to save his life, he passed away on March 2nd. This was a healthy pet with a few little bumps that BANFIELD ANIMAL HOSPITAL SLOWLY KILLED, by perscrbing an antibiotic that Rocco was allergic to.
