I had a rare healthy parrot that I left in the hands of GoldenView Veterinarian hospital run by a Kris Alhgrem. We boarded my Bronze-winged Pionus, named Bronco, because we had to visit a sick relative in Florida on Friday March 6th. While in the care of GoldenView Veterinarians in Golden, they conducted a wellness exam which results showed that Bronco, our parrot, was healthy. 2 days later, we get a call that the parrot fell off his perch and Dr. Kris Alhgrem sent us a picture of our bird, who had just past his wellness exam, dead. They sent a picture of our dead parrot to our cellphones. Autopsy was performed in house (to clear the vet of any wrongdoing, cremation followed). Needless to say, my wife and I were devastated. I need to now move because every thing about my present home reminds me of my poor 3 yr old bird that passed away due to something that happened in the vets office that the vet is not coming clean about. Today, the doctor just called me to tell me that they were charging me $409.00 for the wellness exam, which showed he was healthy. I am at my wits end, because I loved that bird with all my heart and these heartless vets are trying to take advantage of my sorrow. Additionally, the bird was proven 100% healthy by the very same veterinarian in the wellness exam conducted when he first arrived at the clinic. They cremated the bird to remove any trace of wrong doing and are now trying to charge me an excessive amount of money due to their incompetence.
