**Warning: We Had A Horrible Experience at Arnold Pet Station**
On Saturday morning we took our foxhound to Arnold Pet Station for a 2 night stay. I arrived to pick him up this morning. He appeared to be in a state of shock and did not seem to recognize us. He was covered head to toe in some sort of wet stench (maybe a combo of spilled water in the kennel, food, feces, vomit...idk). He has several sores and had hives all over his belly. His gums appeared pale and his feet were not steady. After looking at the bottom of his feet, we saw irritation between his pads. His eyes were gazed to the point that I wondered if he was sedated. I was trying so hard not to cry. The tech who walked him out seemed clueless. Maybe new(?) I can not believe she even brought him to me in the condition he was in. I think the manager and receptionist were also stumped that she brought him to me drenched and smelling so awful.
The veterinarian was called out and she did a full blood panel and checked him over for internal bleeding because his extremities seemed to look bruised to me (maybe lack of circulation?). I insisted on seeing where he was kept. The kennel had not been cleaned yet. There was food on the floor and some of his hair caught on the door bars. The water had spilled everywhere making a mess with the food. There was no blanket of any kind. Just the cement floor. Two techs were not offering any information on what happened. They just seemed confused. The tech who initially walked him out suggested (when asked about him being wet ALL OVER) that “maybe he drooled a lot”.
I tear up just thinking about that first sight I had of him being walked out, listless and not greeting us.
The choice of no stars is not an option, so consider the one star for the veterinarian that examined our boy and seemed sorrowful.
Best Vet EVER!! Dr. Carr has cared for our cats for almost 20 years. As our cats aged, they were very compassionate when we had to put them to sleep. As we brought new cats to them, she stayed on top of their health, identifying dental problems, a heart murmur, as well as all the routine shots and blood work needed to maintain their health. We recommend this animal care to everyone who loves their animals!
My cat, Cassandra, has had recurring problem with constipation leading to dehydration. So I switched from our old vet. and took her to Arnold Pet Station. They took time to discuss her eating habits and recommended a different diet than the previous vet. swore by. Cassandra is now healthier looking and more active than she has been in years. This visit was over a year ago now and she has not had a recurrence of her problem since.
