After a very late night and long day daisy is healthy and doing well. All 5 magnets were removed from her stomach. I am so thrilled we decided to go to academy animal hospital this morning. They did an amazing job. After going to indyvet emergency last night we were not happy with their service. When we called for a quote on xrays I was told $90-150. We get there and she said xrays was $250. Never offered to show us the xray results, i had to ask. The vet was not very knowledgeable. They tried to do a scope. They were unsuccessful, which does happen i do get that. Vet said she was sure that the magnets were pinching her stomach lining. I asked if she could see if there is any fluid in the stomach, vet said oh ya an ultrasound. Thankfully there was no fluid. Total cost at this point $2000 for a exam, xray, scope(not surgical). Really not thrilled at this point. The next move was to have surgery but said we had to pay $6000 at the time of surgery. No banks are open at 3 am. They did not care. There was no help or budging the price. Indyvet emergency stated we could do a credit card but all the money was do before they did surgery, which does not make sense. They must have money then or no surgery another option was euthanize her. She is 6 months old! The vet did offer some sound advice to wait till morning, give her fluids. The doctor said once I come up with the money they can start surgery. The vet did say we could take her to our vet.Then after calling multiple family members we came to the decision to take her to academy animal hospital this morning and to give her fluids till 7am. As soon as I called the academy animal hospital they had the vet speak to me on the phone. Dr. Morgan was so kind. When we brought her in I felt that he knew what he was doing. He offer to show us the xray, never had to ask. Dr. Morgan stated that it looked like there was no pinching. I knew she was in good hands. I felt at ease with my decision to change vets.The charge for academy animal hospital for surgery cost $1000.50, indyvet emergency wanted $6000!!!!! They are crooks, not offer payments and expect you to pay an ungodly amount. Good news now Daisy is magnet free and has an intact stomach. I am so thankful for this amazing vet.
We were advised to go to airport hospital next time!
Appearance is very nice, but this place is very unprofessional. The staff seemed like they didnt know what they were doing including the vet. They do not keep a trained surgeon there so hope no one has a real emergency! Wait time was awful even though there were only 2 cars in the parking lot when we arrived! And worst of all my pet received a very wrong diagnosis.
