I had been a loyal client for 11 years. This past weekend, one of my cats became ill overnight. When I called VCA Animal Hosp. the very next morning to get in to see my regular vet, I was told I couldn't get in until January (a month from now). Really? A sick pet? So on Monday I got an appt. with another vet, different location, and by that time my cats health had declined drastically. They have other associate vets, but it's my experience that they stink. I had a new adopted pet and took her in because she had diarrhea. The assoc. vet couldn't diagnose the problem. Turned out all she had was worms! And to boot, I was charged twice for the exam, which they would not recend. Ever since VCA took over this place, all they seem to care about is your money, not your pet.
This clinic saved my newfoundland from AIHA, caused by the rattlesnake vaccine given by my vet. I was urged by my vet to take her there even though I lived in another state. They saved her and the fatality rate from AIHA is over 70%. Yes their expensive but 24 hr vet supervision and well worth the money.
Though the ad material says VCA Highland's main priority is our pets' health, it's very clear that VCA's main priority is making money. Though it has had some good veterinarians through the years, I see no reason to go there now that Dr. Mask has retired.
I took a Great Pyrenees, a working dog, in for a neuter and got talked into a more expensive version that, it turns out, is primarily for show dogs. It was not presented to me as an "appearance" thing but rather a health enhancer. Guess what? Only dog I've ever had, and I've had dogs for 55 years, who has had repeated problems with a neuter!
And then there was my ailing, elderly cat. I got talked into a senior wellness check to the tune of hundreds of dollars. This wellness check apparently showed nothing, or at least that was what the veterinarian, Dawn somebody, said. And as soon as I had spent the money, she was no longer interested in my cat's health problems at all. Wellness check said he was fine, so that was that. My cat died of hyperthyroidism within the year.
I have no desire to further enrich a vet practice that does substandard work and cares only about money.
This place is very expensive. I received a quote to get my dog's teeth clean for $1300 which included two teeth extraction. I went to Banfield Hospital instead and got her teeth done for $500 which included two teeth extraction.
Be careful and do your research, you don't have to spend that kind of money to get you dogs teeth clean.
My Weimeramer had Thyroid cancer, we were referred to VCA’s cancer doc Susan Ettinger.
We asked that he be treated with Prednison, not Chemo. Dr. Ettinger didnt seem to hear our wishes. We were patients less than 1 month, 3 visits.
By chemo 2 an ultra sound also revealed liver & spleen cancer, Prostrate infection (meds weren't working), Kidney infection, High white blood count
I asked if he could endure chemo & she said he was getting a weaker drug
I return & he has diarrhea "you should give him the meds at home" they say. “Did you give him a pill?” I ask since his meds are home 45 min away.
“No, we would have had to charge you $20” they say. "He can barely walk" I note “well he got up in the back & made it to the waiting room, see”
Our dog was very sick & barely slept. At 7:40 the next morning I took an extremely wobbly & unbalanced dog out to relieve himself. He laid down in our back yard & died.
We think he had a heart attack, & he suffered, we think he was too weak for Chemo.
My dog was lethargic and not eating or drinking for 2 days.She took X-rays and blood work that came out fine. While I waited in the room for 5 hrs my dog became sicker throwing up 3 times which I told them about. She said my dog
was dehydrated so they gave her fluids and some nausea medication and sent her home advising if she got sicker to bring her back for an ultrasound.I brought her to another vet and she was diagnosed with Pravo disease ! A common highly contagious disease a dog can get if they are not vaccinated as puppies! My dog had all the symptoms of this disease but they did not test her for them! WHY NOT! Totally negligent ! $773 dollars they charged and my dog could have died. I also told the doctor I didn't care about the cost do whatever it takes! They were totally aware that it was a stray dog I found and she may not had gotten any shots as a puppy! Please do not bring your dog to the VCA of Cheshire
Have had no problems previously with Dr. Chinn till today. Very condescending and judgmental to a situation we were put into. Offered no solutions or help whatsoever. Inexcusable attitude and unless I receive an apology immediately I will be going elsewhere and making sure everyone knows it.
I have never had a vet clinic so welcoming. My dog, a huge GSD is out of control with anxiety and lack of socialization but VCA understands and makes no judgement. I LOVE THESE PEOPLE. Great doctors, techs and office staff and my big brute of a dog gets excellent care while I don't get judged.
