I took my dog in Sat., 5/28/11 because my vet was closed for the holiday. I wouldn't have been able to get her in until Tues.
I didn't think her problem could wait until then. She was rubbing and scratching her right ear. The vet at Banfield said she had a yeast infection so she gave me an ear wash and an ointment to put in both ears. I spent $118.
I was to follow up w/ them or my vet 6/11. I could not wait until then. On 6/6/11 I called my vet because BOTH ears got very red and hot to the touch. My dog was miserable!
My vet saw her 6/7 and found that the medication that she was put on was an old remedy and could have caused the ears to get worse. Her ears were full of bacteria. He administered a one time very thick ointment and sent me home w/ antibiotics. I spent $138.
I called the vet at Banfield, she was unwilling to do anything but recheck my dog. Why in would I want my dog rechecked by her when I had just come from my own vet?
