Moral of the story is:
Never trust the Veterinarians, as they are simply interested in sucking out your money and not your pet's health.
This especially applies to the Staff at Sun Valley Regional Animal Hospital who were willing to endanger my dog's life by subjecting him to a very dangerous and complicated operation after grossly misdiagnosing him, just so that they could get paid. These people should lose their license.
Take your pets to Diablo Pet Hospital.
