When my little buddy, Crystal,...
When my little buddy, Crystal, a miniature australian shepherd, that I was honored to call my friend got sick one evening, my vet referred me to Blue Pearl. I was treated professionally and politely during my initial visit. When my vet wanted a second opinion and to see both an internist and a cardiologist, back to Blue Pearl I went. Unlike an emergency room in the area, the charges were very reasonable and the work was first rate.
They keep in good communication with your regular vet. One way that you can help them help you is to keep a copy of all blood tests and other diagnostic work done by your regular vet and bring that with you when you need to visit BluePearl.
One night, when she had a reaction to some medicine she was on, I immediately took her to Blue Pearl without a second thought. Unlike some places, where you have to fill out a stack of forms even if you have been there recently, they noticed I had been in recently, acknowledge that and told me a vet tech would be with me shortly and the vet would be see right after I got to the exam room. All I needed was a small bit of medication. The bill for that visit was less than $100. Far less than I was expecting.
In the last few weeks, I had to take her in a few times, trying to help her stay as comfortable as possible until nothing else could be done. When the end came for my little Crystal, they made it as painless as you could hope for. They gave us as much time as we needed to say our goodbyes. What really shocked me was that when the end came, no less than 3 different people from Blue Pearl called my vet's office in addition to the fax that is usually sent after a visit to make sure my Vet knew all the details and to be prepared for my visit with them.
I can't say enough good things about the folks at either the Overland Park or Lees Summit locations. When the time comes to have another pup come into my life, Blue Pearl will play an important role in that new relationship. They dont suggest a test or procedure to run up your bill and their profit margin - they only suggest it if they think it will help or give them additional information to help your little buddy get better.
