When our dog refused to get up and whimpered in pain, I was thrilled to learn Banfield was open on a holiday weekend. I was less thrilled when the exam, x-rays and glucosamine supplements I did agree to cost $600.
The vet tried numerous times to suggest services and point out so many bogus health issues on their report (infected gums and desperate need of cleaning, overweight, need for additional scans and ongoing care, etc.)that it seemed my happy little dog was on her last legs. Have been a groomer for 20 yrs. and know when I'm being scammed.
Follow-up with my vet found none of these issues, except for the presenting problem. Feel bad for people who don't know much about dogs or elderly folks who are easily persuaded to okay tons of unnecessary services.
