I hate banfield to make a long story short. My dog was having puppies, she had 3 at home and the 4th was just not coming out.
I took her to Banfield and they told me that she needed a c-section and the cost was 1600.00 I told them I didn't have the money. The doctor there try to help but another doctor was going to do the surgery. Dr. Daniel was going o conduc it and he wants 1600.00 up front.
Well after rubbing her stomach by my friend the baby came out. GREAT!!! I went home after 4 days my dog was very weak and falling she didn't want the puppies. I took her again to Banfield guest which doctor was there Dr.
Daniels. He told me after 4 hours waiting for the blood results that she need a blood trifusion and surgery and the cost was 1300.00. Well before he even looked at her he told me I know who you are and you didn't let me do the c-section. He stated" I had my staff there and waited for you 2 hoours, I had to pay my staff over time".
Not how is sweetie doing what is the problem nothing. I gave it to him, I told him you of all people should be happy and it is not my fault she gave birth to the pup. He was mad. I told him I didn't have the money (1300.00) he then told me that she was going to died.
I told him I was taking her somewhere else. Which I did, they gave her a IV within minutes and started examing her. She may need a transfusion but we are trying to let the meds work first. No surgery at all.
She just lost a lo of blood while giving birth. The blood transfusion will cost maybe 200.00 verses 1300.00. They even offer to assist me with a payment paln. The dog came first.
At Banfield money comes first. I was told even by the workers that they steal people's money and do not care about your pet.
I called the corp office and made a report. I hope and pray that the meds work out.
Monetary Loss: $550.
