VCA SouthPaws Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center

My dog was referred to Southpaws after a diagnosis of cancer. He has a very aggressive form of cancer. I was given a number of treatment options along with the expected outcomes from each treatment. The compassion and care they showed for both me and my dog was outstanding. Whenever I had a question, I got answers within a few hours. My dog is still doing well and although his prognosis is not good I am sure I got the best care for him that is available.
I brought my cat into the Southpaws emergency room. The vet there diagnosed the problem as an abscessed tooth and told me to bring her to an animal dentist. I did so. There was no abscessed tooth but while the dentist was examining her, the technician noticed that the cat had an abscessed gland on the other end of the cat. I stopped at Southpaws and asked for my $465 back. They refused. Apparently they feel that this kind of incompetence is acceptable.
