Our dog ate some bird seed and was panting all night. Next morning I took her to Banfield - my vet wasn't there and the temp vet put her in a cage with an IV.
A hit by car dog came in and was yelping while my dog lay in agony - the bill for the fluids was $400. I picked her up at 5:00 and brought her home - she drank some water and began screaming. Her intestines ruptured and we tried to find an emergency vet in the dark. We got lost while our dog screamed all the way.
We finally found the emergency vet and she had to be put down. I do believe she could have been helped if taken to a proper veterinarian.
The emergency vet hinted at that. The experience was horrendously heart breaking - in fact I will NEVER forget as long as I live the agony and suffering she endured because of the stupidity at Banfield.
