Banfield killed my 8 YO Chihuahua by overdosing her and stopping her heart. She didn't need to be sedated, they did this to hold her hind legs vertically to remove fluid from her lungs, she had a Lasix IV which is designed to removed fluid.
She was obviously in a fragile condition weight loss, irregular heartbeat. She was on oxygen, but they took that off too soon. Her heart stopped and they came out to the waiting room and asked if I wanted to revive her. I am not sure if they said that to get another $500, so I went in and they were massaging her heart and the EKG was good but it looked like it was too fast of a beat, which could have been the Lidocaine, maybe too much of that too.
I went in a 3rd time and they had her head propped facing me her eyes were solid black and non responsive, I think she may have been dead or had a stroke. They encouraged me sign a consent for euthanasia stating she wouldn't make the trip to another hospital since they closed at 6 PM She was overdosed and another vet would have seen this. If enough pet survivors sign up I will get my friend to represent us in a class action lawsuit. I am so sick of the way they treated my dog and me.
The vet in charge said you have been here awhile, also said when I asked a question, I already told you that.
Mars of Franklin, TN, makes Lil Caesar food and treats owns Banfield. I am a senior and my health has been affected by this to the point that I will need to be treated for severe depression.
