First of all I would like to warn everyone not to go to Banfield because they dont care about your pet only $$$$. I had a chihuahua who I cared for and loved so much.
Never got sick till one day he accidentally swallowed a string from a blanket. I took him in to banfield and had an X ray done which supposely revealed no intestinal obstruction and that evenually he would *** it out and be fine. Next day he was very lethargic and vomiting so I took him back because obviously there was something wrong with him. they ended up saying he needed surgery or he was going to die.
I couldnt afford 1500 and they wouldnt allow payments. Even with surgery there wasnt a guarantee he would survive afterwards. they told me that if I couldnt afford to pay he was just going to die and that the only way to save him was if I gave up my right away to them. I was so upset at them and looking at my dog so ill almost dying couldnt bare to have him suffer longer so being desperate i decided to give him up.
I kind of felt like I had no options and felt that would be the best thing to do at that time in order to give him a chance to live. The only thing I asked for before doing what I did was to know his condition afterwards. They told me yes that would be fine and that if he made it he would be put for adoption. When I called back for updates on him they didnt want to release any info.
I was very pissed because they told me it would be ok to call and ask how he did after wards. its been a couple of days and still no calls returned from the manager. I found out by someone that surgery went ok but throughout the night he got worse and didnt make it. The manager is just giving me the run arounds.
Would like to know the truth and probably will never know.
very unacceptable on their behalf to act the way they did when all I wanted was my dog to live. God will punish them.
