Banfield Pet Hospital - Wrong operation, small tag, wrong place on dog, HUGE wound
I was beside myself with grief for what they did to my dog.I wrote a note with directions of what was supposed to be done.
I showed the receptionist exactly where the small tag was and what needed to be done. I went to pick her up and noticed the huge wound in her side. I was livid. Sure, I received an apology.
But this is not the first time an error was made. I have a Border Collie and, apparently they easily develop fatty tumors. I noticed that my current dog was gaining weight but there was no reason for it. It reminded me of the misdiagnosis of my former Border Collie in Baltimore.
I voiced my concerns. My thought is/was that the weight gain, w/out more food, in addition to no extra exercise, paired with her age and demeanor: the dogs gained weight by way of all of the fatty tumors they had; the ones inside that you cant feel. I am talking of a lot of weight. I asked, specifically, for an xray, gave my explicit consent in writing, and the xrays were not done, as they werent done in Baltimore.
When I went in for the information session after my dog had been seen, the vet was clueless about her condition, what I had asked for, what i had given in writing and the directions I had given, in writing for the other two pets I had dropped off at the same time. I think I am done.
It is such a shame, they could be great but this has been going on for over 10 years, and one of my dogs is dead.You know, just about the hardest thing to go through...
