Please do not take your fur babies here! They don't care about the pain and suffering of your pet! Dr Rob is so rude and treats you like you like your a pos because you don't want to put your 8 year old pet through stomach surgery when he wont even know the outcome, I wanted her out of her misery and pain and he refused to do it! But because of that my friend took me to pick her up (as I was to upset to drive) and take her to Lee Summit animal Hospital, where I was able to love her, kiss her and say my good byes to her, she is now in no more pain and resting peacefully! I how ever am a mess����
So please look into another vet, I will Not be bringing my Chewy back there!
ALL ABOUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY CAN SQUEEZE OUT OF YOU AT YOUR DARKEST HOUR. I DIDNT WANT TO EVEN WRITE THIS REVIEW BECAUSE I COULD NOT GIVE ZERO STARS. Made my wife feel terrible because she wanted to take our dog somewhere else. It was so very obvious that there was no hope in saving her. They charged us $900 and wanted to do a very expensive procedure and could not even give a diagnosis first. Then the Dr. refused to help us put our poor pet to sleep. Paid our bill in full and took her to a REAL LOVING CARING VET and right away they told us that we were right and the most humane thing would be to let her go. SHAME ON THESE PEOPLE FOR THEIR DECEITFUL PRACTICES TO MAKE MONEY!
BEWARE! If you truly love your pets do not take them here!!!
Took our cat ro get neutered and declawed. A week later and over 600$ spent our cat is dead. They tryed to say he must have ate a plant or something or his kidneys must have been bad his whole life and they just happened to shut down a week after his surgery. When the only thing different was that he had surgery. I told the vet that he is the one who said he would be good for the surgery but clearly he was not because it ended up killing him. He said that would have nothing to so with him dying. I dont believe anything he said. I just think he was after more money.
The team at the facility has been there for my family pets at the worst of times and at the beginning of a new member to our family. Numerous cats and several dogs. Always so helpful in explaining any procedure required. Willing to work with you coming to visit when your pet is required to stay overnight.
This place is only about the money. They tried to get my elderly blind mom to get her dogs teeth cleaned twice in one year. Then she needed meds and wanted to order from 100petmeds and they refused to call in saying she could get it directly from them so they wouldn't let her full it elsewhere.
First of all; be cautious-- As far as my family's experience with Crain, we took our mixed-breed in for the basic maintenance; an ear cleaning, nail clip, shots, and teeth cleaning. Much to our surprise our energetic, healthy, busy, social, very much loved family pet was returned to us with news of heart problems, an odd infection of his urinary tract that set in within a week of taking the heart med, and TOTALLY DEAF. Totally, irreparably DEAF. No apology from the staff, no explanation other than, "Well, sometimes that happens". We are just sick. He was hearing fine when he went in, but now responds to no noise at all since the day he came home. Heart breaking, to see him become more dejected by the day... We took him to another vet, by the way, who told us there was nothing to be done about the hearing loss now, and that the dog didn't at all need the heart medication. Sick.
My dog had an eye ulcer and Crain told me that surgery was necessary. They told me that the surgery would probably make my dog close to blind in that eye which it did indeed. They had to sew the inner eye shut and I had to put suave in his eye for 6 weeks not to mention the cone that he had to wear for 6 weeks. About a year later my dog got another ulcer in his other eye and I took him to different Vet. Much too my surprise, they told me that it could be taken care of by adding a suave to his eye for two weeks. I told them about the prior surgery that Crain insisted was needed and they told me that surgery was only needed in extreme situations as a last resort. I was furious!!! I used the suave for two weeks and the ulcer was completely gone. Crain put my dog through a lot of pain and suffering and caused him to be all but blind in one eye for absolutely nothing!!! I cant even put into words how furious I was!!! All they care about at Crain is the almighty dollar. I cant even believe they're still in business. This place is horrible!!!
Crain vets are not trustworthy at all. They put the dollar signs first and not the health or wellbeing of your pet. We took our 3 year old cat in because she was acting lethargic. The vet gave her her vaccinations, THEN starting telling us she needed her teeth cleaned, an x ray, blood work, etc. He was rapid firing all sorts of numbers at us. We paid for the xray and he tells us she has fluid around her heart. He offered to give her antibiotics by IV for $500 dollars, but said we could give them to her at home for $54. What a bozo. We took her to another vet recommended to us a couple days later when her health became worse. This vet showed us (on the xray we brought to him from Crain) the very large cancerous tumor she had in her stomach. We could even feel it. Why the Crain vet chose to not point out that our cat was terminal to us is very clear. He just wanted to milk us for as much money as he could. Do not take your animals to Crain Veterinary Center!
Let me start by saying we have been using Crane for almost 20 years and been very happy with our pets care up until a couple of years ago. I took my Aussie in today for a follow up on a severe Arthritis diagnosis. To receive this diagnosis Daisy was sedated , X-ray , and had blood work done . $372 I which did include some medication. When the doctor took us back today, reading the chart, asked us how Daisy was recovering from surgery ...,,,no surgery was done. He left the office twice with no explanation and then returned to start the exam all over again. Very strange visit in which I was charged another $20 for the follow up. We are finding a new clinic.
I have been taking my animals here for years, the staff is extremely friendly and has saved my animals lives at times. Dr Espy has given me his personal phone number if things went south at home with one of my cats health. The staff there has been nothing but amazing, I have strayed away once and will never again, because no one else compares.
This veterinary clinic broke veterinary protocol by vaccinating a sick puppy ignoring all the label warnings on the vaccines. Then held the puppy hostage by keeping it overnight for two nights against the owners wishes. Btw. No one checks on these animals left overnight. Or on Sundays.
