I've waited almost a year to post a review on Aardmore to be sure my opinion had not changed. I had been a client there for 15 years and four dogs. However, after my last experience with Aardmore and Dr. Bradley in particular the day before my dog passed away we have gone elsewhere for the care and treatment of our pets. Aardmore used to be a great place to go and Dr. Pineau was wonderful. They always had time for questions, explained everything and never hesitated to squeeze your pet in if need be. I had recommended them numerous times to friends and neighbors, most of which went and fell in love with them. However, they got to the point where they were reluctant to squeeze you in and made me personally feel like a nuisance when I insisted on bringing my dog in twice after having a penrose drain installed and I felt there was too much fluid and clotted blood coming from it. The last visit on 10/24/14 I saw Dr. Bradley because the site had too much clotted blood coming from it. I was told by Dr. Bradley that she wasn't familiar with my dog's case and had also had Dr. Tucker look at her since she assisted in her care when was inpatient for four days there the previous week, that the drain was not in anymore (I never did find that drain anywhere in my house) to clean the area with Peroxide and given another script for antibiotics. We then had to leave through the back door because my dog had a lot of clots coming out of the site. After no improvement that evening and the next morning, we were at PetER, where the hemangiosarcoma was confirmed and by that point there was no way to stop the bleeding. When I received a copy of my pets records I found it interesting that on that last date I saw Dr. Bradley there was absolutely no description whatsoever of why we were there to see them, what our complaints were, like the numerous other notes of prior visits had, just "drain now out, clean area with peroxide, swelling now localized to area slightly to middle of upper thigh, 20 Baytril, 136 1/2, recheck on Weds." and the charge of $25. I was most disappointed that I received no phone call from anyone at Aardmore after they received the records from PetER which were faxed the next day and only a sterile condolence card two weeks later from a 15 year client.
They have lost my business as I would never trust any of my pets to be cared for by them again and the business of at least two people I had recommended to them.
Brought in our dog to deal with spot bleeding from her lower area.They spayed her,said it would handle it.She still bled darker&less watery,more meds.Back again.Now said she had a tumor on her mammary gland.Said her blood count too low,kept her there.Fourth day,said her blood was hard to clot,said possible rat poisoning.We demanded to take her.Said they wouldn't recommend it.They had to hose her down from the blood(& possibly her feces)&wrapped her so tightly with bandages.Never told us what they were for.Set us home with Vitamin K pills.She gradually got worse.Took her to another animal hospital,she had a seizure in our car right after we arrived.Woman took her in right away.She said she died. I blame our dogs death on the incompetence of this animal hospital.Barely informed us of her condition.Care more about money than pets.Informed them of her passing,recept asked if we wanted to cancel tumor removal surgery!Doc said he told us it was cancerous.NEVER told us before they killed her!
Boarded my animal for 30 days. When I picked her up she was skin and bones, had feces on her tail and lower body like she slept in her own waste. I will never leave an animal, even one I hated, at that place. I then learned that the first time I left her they discovered she had been shoot by a bb gun. This was six months earlier but no one told me. I found the staff irresponsible and uncaring. The vets were no better.
We have been taking our pets here for over 30 years. The customer service is excellent and the Vets are caring and thorough. They treat our pets just as though they were theirs. The care they provide is among the best and very kind to your wallet. I highly recommend this facility for your animal care needs.
