Warning- This is not a hospital it is a general practice for basic medical needs. Do not waste you pet's precious time here.
My beloved dog died today... I am not placing the blame here I just wish I got better direction...
I went in with my dog because she was limping, panting hard, and had a nipple that was bleeding. Upon arrival I told the vet the reasons and she doesn't even bother touching her, checking her eyes, heart rate, temperature, teeth/gums. Didn't seem like an animal lover. She tells me to hold her head and I tell her- she won't bite. I get told that the nipple could be cancer (just from sheer visual inspection) and that we should do an x-ray and blood test. We agree and she doesn't see much in the x-ray but a torn ligament, gives us anti-inflammatory pills and tells us to come back for the blood result.
Next day, my dog is panting like crazy, can barely walk, stops eating and has blood splotches all over her eye balls. I call immediately and come in to be told that her blood test came up partial (she read it to me like i should know how to read a blood test report). She has an infection possibly. Then she tells me to take my dog to a bigger hospital. At this point she could barely walk. I get charged for a painkiller shot.
-So my question here is she can do surgical procedures but cannot cure an infection?
2 hours later my dog passed away. Bless her kind soul...I'm sorry I brought you here.
I just wish that instead of making me waste money (hundreds of dollars) and my dogs precious time that she could have just pointed me in the right direction initially instead of running unnecessary tests and telling me everything seems ok and having my pet die from a possible infection that should be easily treatable. 2 hours out of their office, I lost my dog of 10 years...I blame no one but my judgement for having come here...Do not take your loved ones here...
I felt very comfortable leaving my cat with them for the several hours that it took to do the spaying procedure/surgery ( this was a big deal because I don't trust anyone with my cat :)) They
were friendly and seemed to be animal lovers as well, and for that I am grateful!!
I Went here to Get faster result for my Dog. Spent close to 600 dollars for a lab test that Got me to nothing. First Dr. Kim claimed he might have cancer. Basically This Place tries to Get as much money As possible from People, and gives you no Result. They said that my Dog had a Severe Inflammation on the Nose. Doesn't Take a Dr. To figure that out. I knew that since I took him in. They sent test to Lab. said We will get Results in 3 days. I call on Monday they have no results. Tuesday, No Results. So I ask them to Let me know as soon as they get the result. They call Friday and Say the result needs studying for another 7 Days. While I am Sick worrying for my Dog. This Place is Horrible. Another Lady Brings her dog in I guess her Dog got hit by a Car. She goes in and They take about 5 minutes to help and and just to tell her her Dog has Passed Away. No Urgency or Seem to Know what they are doing. Specially the Asian Secretary which Was super rude. Even Snapped the Paper out of my hand.
