Banfield Pet Hospital Vet was a nightmare, the Vet and staff were totally inconsiderate to my pet and myself! Would never go back there.
They did nothing to help my cat and interrogated me and took my words and turned them into negative and derrogatory comments about my pet care routines. I had the free pet exam coupon that had no exceptions on your visit. However, the cat has developed a flea allergies and they were trying to sell $250. in blood test even though I just came in to get his skin checked and get a rabies shot.
Vet did check his skin and then more interrogation about my flea control habits (advantage). No rabies shot! The most horrible thing was that the assistant grabbed the cat away from me and tossed him into a cupboard under the sink and said he would like it in there. This is when I saw him sitting on the sink pipes and saw him putting his head towards the wall.
I opened up the cubby and found *** about 3"x4" that went straight into the wall. He already had his head and front paws into the hole. I grabbed him and struggled for several seconds asking for the Asst's help who did nothing but stand there. I finally got the cat out and held and petted him.
When the Vet came in she said oh your cat is really stressed out, when I told her to look at the hole in the cupboard she looked towards it and snickered and tried to blame the cats stress on me. Basically she was pisssed at me for not wanting to buy their pet plan, etc. Refused to have an Asst.
help me out to the car with cat n carrier because I cannot lift and recently had abdominal surgery and major medical treatment ongoing. If you want help for your pet stay away from Banfield; their Vets are sales people and care nothing for your pet.
