Banfield Pet Hospital - Banfield gives unneccessary vaccinations which are at odds with the feline vaccine protocols
Banfield gives unneccessary vaccinations which are at odds with the feline vaccine protocols.
I had an indoor cat that they every year gave the FeLV vaccine to. Per established protocol only kittens or high risk (outdoor) cats should receive this annual vaccine as it is known to cause Sarcomas at the injection site (VAS). Needless to say at the age of 8 (we adopted her from shelter when she was 3), our cat got a sarcoma at the injection site, and even with surgery/biopsy was dead 6 months later (cancer metastified to lungs).
Another vet I took her to for examination right off the bat asked if cat was getting FeLV when he saw/felt the lump...I showed him the long list of Vaccines the cat received every year from Banefield, he said she should only should been getting an annual Distemper, and 3-yr rabies.
Its all about the money with Banfied. Steer clear of Banfield if you truly care about your pets, and want them to love long quality lives.
