I won't write too many details about what happened to me because I'm very sad. My little princess started vomiting and not eating well so I took her to this "hospital".
They examined her and asked us if she had any pain or if she was depressed and we said no. She was just not eating and vomiting. They brought us a big list of things to do but since we were on a budget we could do everything. They suggested us to do the pancreatitis, a vaccine and some pills to take home.
We didn't do the pancreatitis test but we did the other things. First of all, they shouldn't have prescribe her the pills because if she is vomiting she will vomit the pill. Before this visit to the doctor she was active and happy but after this she got worse. She didn't want to eat anything still so we called the doctor and she said it was okay.
After a few days, she still wasn't eating so we took her there again. They did the pancreatitis test because they really though it was that and it was negative. This was totally not necessary because if she had this problem she would had pain and diarrhea and she had none of those symptoms. They also gave her the same pill for vomiting but in an injection form.
We asked them why they give her the same medication but in an injection and they told us that it was better. So, why didn't they give my dog that at the beginning!!! They also gave her a subcutaneous fluid because she was dehydrated. They didn't want to do this because they knew this would make my dog feel better and we wouldn't go there anymore.
After two days, my dog kept vomiting and fell to the floor every time she vomited because she couldn't hold herself. I decided to take her to VALUEVET and their treatment was so different! They actually cared about the dog and not the money! They did the blood work and her problem was that her kidney wasn't working and she died the other day.
The vet told us that if we had taken her there and treated her she would be alive now. Banfield is a money hungry hospital if you actually care about your dog go to VALUEVET it's cheaper and has a better quality!
