On May 26 I took my cat of 12 yrs old for a routine exam that included a dental prophylaxis (cleaning), which was done. The cat received 2.6 ml of propofol for anhestesia. Then after the cat came from the anesthesia the Vet. gave her NSAID and Opioid. When she came out of surgery she was paddling, and she gave her Midazolam IV, 5 mlg. Since the paddling did not stop the Vet gave the cat the same medication 4 more times because she wanted the cat to stop paddling, which is a sign of life. The cat was induced into comma and after many hours without recovery I had to transport her to the Emergency Clinic because Banfield do not care for animals after 7:00 PM. The cat was admited into EC and stayed there for two days, and she died on Memorial Day.
I have nothing but regret of having taken my companion of 12 years to this place to find death.
I will do wherever it takes to tell everyone not to take their animals to this place, and take the vet license away for good.
