STAY AWAY FROM BREES ANIMAL HOSPITAL... PLEASE SHARE!!!! On June 17th, 2015 around 11am, I took Queen into Brees Animal Hospital because she was in labor and had only had 1 puppy since 6am that morning. BREES Animal Hospital is not my normal vet. My vet is about 1.5 hrs away. Dr Roblejo Sr came in and did a 2 sec so called assessment on Queen and started getting ready for the csection. Queen was panting but very responsive..I could feel the pups in her belly still moving. They took Queen back and began her csection. While in the middle of the csection, one of the vet techs came up to me and said "we are spaying her as well correct." I made it completely clear that I didn't want her Spayed! About 5 mins later, another vet tech rushes up and says, "she needs to be spayed because her uterus is torn, I'd not her and the puppies will die." So of course, I agreed. I love Queen and wouldn't want to lose her.. Fast forward 30 mins.. csection complete.. her pups survived... but Queen was not still out of it. Dr Roblejo Jr comes in and clarifies... Queens uterus had never torn.. but had twisted.. making the spay at that time unecessary.. I was very upset but it was to late so what could I do. The Dr suggested I get milk replacement due to the fact that Queens milk had not come down. I ran to the store got the milk.. came back and they explain.. that Queen is still out of it due to the anesthesia. I take the pups home, feed them and set them up in the incubator.. I return for Queen at 530pm. They tell me she still hasn't stood but maybe with my coaching she would. So they escort me back, I find her laying on a blanket on a floor. My dog who has a new incision just laying on the floor. I get down next to her, start calling her name
. Nothing no response.. I look her over.. rub her down... she moves slightly but would not get her. I stood her up physically... she hunches over and lays back down. The vet techs stood there watching claiming that it was a normal response.. the nurse in me starts to dig further.. I open her mouth.. bingo.. I find the whitest gums... I have never ever seen anything like it. All mucus membranes white.. inside of the ears white... I immediately draw it to the attention of the vet techs.. they again tell me this is normal.. I call for the vet.. she looks attention has them draw a blood count.. she says it's low but again keeps telling me that it's normal.. I had to carry Queen to my car and immediately rushed her to the emergency vet.. where of course they rushed her to the back.. her PCV was very low.. they thought she was bleeding out.. Her WBC (white blood cells... which indicated infection ) was extremely high... Queen spent the night at the emergency vet, where thank God they were able to stabilize her with fluids... . The vet was unsure if she would even make it through the night... When I left the emergency vet, I called and spoke to Dr Roblejo Sr.. he was very arrogant, blamed me stating I knew the risks .. Had I listened to his instructions, I would have taken Queen home and she would have died.. STAY AWAY FROM BREES ANIMAL HOSPITAL. .. THEY ARE HORRIBLE. I HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED SUCH IGNORANCE AND DISREGARD FOR ANIMAL LIFE...
To make matters worse.. the puppies did not make it.. :( This has truly been a horrible experience.. One that me and my family will never forget. Queen is doing much better at this point..
