i too had a similar insident that actually happened yesterday. my dog was pregnant and she wasn\'t giving birth, she was pushing but nothing was coming out.
i was scared for her live so i had taken her to banfield hospital. at the time the only place that was open was banfield. we went there and they said she had a puppy the size of a lab and my dog is a chihuahua. they told us we had to do a c-section or the dog and puppy would die.
they said it would cost 1,500. i didn\'t have that kind of money. i tried to see if we could do payments, but they said since we wern\'t one of their regular customers we couldn\'t. and i tried to raise my pet care card but they wouldn\'t raise it either.
i had no choice. they said the only choice i had was to sign her over to them and they would do the operation but find her a new home if she lived. at the time i was so sad, why can\'t i keep my dog, why? because i didn\'t have that kind of money, i had to sign her over to the hospital.
it was like signing over your kid to an adoption place.me and my husband cried so long. we asked if they knew what adoption place they send the dogs to, but they would not tell us. why? i mean if they are going to send the dog to a adoption place and people are going to buy the dog, why can\'t we?
why because we didn\'t pay the 1,500, but when they sell our dog to someone else for $500, we can\'t buy her back? funny isn\'t it. anyways we had to sign her over to the hospital because they gave her a shot that helped her with her contractions and they said if the baby didn\'t come out within 30 to 45 minutes after they gave her the shot that she needs a c-section or she will die. me and my husband cried so long but we said we had no choice.
we either let her die or sign her over so they could operate and she could live. we didn\'t want our baby to die so we signed her over. we asked if we could wait and see if the operation went well, but they would not let us stay. they said once we signed her over we had to leave and we could not know anything about her or where she went or if she made it.
i thought to myself what the ****. how could these people be so cruel. do these people even have a heart. do they even have animals.makes me think that maybe these people working here like you vicky, only want your pay check.
i mean if i was working there i would secretly tell the customer because i care, even if i was breaking the rules. i had like 4 different people that was helping me with my dog and not even one would tell me. all i wanted was to stay and see how the operation went and if it was bad if i could buy my dogs ashes back and keep them. they said we have to leave.
so many things were going through my head. are these people really going to do the operation or are they gonna just leave my dog in one of there cages and leave her there until she gives birth or die. one nurse did tell me she\'ll let me know if my dog lived or died. i left at 11:00pm and she said call her an hour in a half later.
is the operation only an hour and a half? anyways, i called her and she said my dog lived and the puppy died. i don\'t know if i trust her or not though. i\'m searching for the adoption place that banfield sends the dogs that are signed over to them, if anyone knows please help.
even if i can\'t have my dog back i just want to know if she\'s alive or dead. i wan\'t to see her body to see if they did try to help her or if they did the operation or not, then my heart will be at ease. why couldn\'t they let me stay and see how she was before i went home. why wouldn\'t they tell me if she made it or not?
i had a nurse secretly tell me. if she told me the truth or not i don\'t know for certain.
she said she did make it so i am in search for the adoption place they send the dogs now. if anyone knows please help, thanks.
