DON'T ALLOW DR JOHN FULLER AT ADVANCED VETERINARY CARE OF PLANO TO TOUCH YOUR PETS!!!I only used him because the rescue group that I adopted my puppies from used him. The adoption fees covered shots and spaying for the puppies.The few appointments that they went there for I was not impressed with the empty waiting room and lack of ringing phones. Nor, did I care for the poor interaction he had with the puppies. He SUPPOSEDLY spayed my pit mix! Due to his lack of professionalism and lack of caring, he never made an effort to explain the surgery or recovery process. The only thing I know is there was an incision and she had been sedated. At her first appointment with my personal vet there was a bulge in her incision site that corrected itself. Recently, her teats and vulva became enlarged, which shouldn't happen on a spayed dog. My vet examined her and he feels that her ovaries were not removed and that is why she is showing signs of going in to heat. Since I took her in to be spayed and there was an incision we are hoping that the uterus was removed. I am on a wait and see if there is bleeding to determine if there is a uterus. If there is bleeding then I will have to have her spayed again and possibly exploratory surgery. Due to the concerns of her treatment I have now had both puppies vaccinated by my vet to insure they are protected. For all I know he injected them with saline instead of the vaccines. I do at least know they received the heart worm prevention each month since I was getting that from my vet. He might as well be an animal abuser!
I've been coming here for several years, but I'll never come here again. My last visit was because my dog was irritated by her ears - kept shaking her head and rubbing her ears on the floor. The doctor said she had ear infections in both ears and prescribed Otomax. Next thing I know, my dog is deaf! I looked up Otomax side effects online, and deafness in geriatric dogs is a known side effect. This vet knows my dog is old! He never told me about this side effect nor warned me to look out for signs of hearing loss. I am so furious! Either he is incompetent and doesn't know about the side effects of the drugs he is prescribing, or he just doesn't feel like notifying the customers. I had to take my dog to a different vet, who used a machine to rinse my dog's ears. Now I am just crossing my fingers her hearing comes back.When I called to cancel my follow up appointment and tried to explain to the receptionist why I was cancelling, she acted like she couldn't care less. She didn't apologize, didn't ask for the doctor to call back. Just said, trying to get me off the phone, "Well, your appointment is cancelled." And that was that. For your pets' sake, don't bring them here.
As a former employee this place is horrible The DON came to do admission she left it half way and another nurse didn't show up so they put me with 2 orientees and 7 admissions Lord Jesus saved me from this place.
Gearing Up has become a production line for therapy and I would strongly advise looking elsewhere to find a much more caring and personal approach to counseling/therapy. Actually, I had been a patient years ago -- and my wife also was a patient a while back -- and we both liked the Gearings. However, in my recent experience I could clearly see that this practice has grown so large that it's become extremely disorganized, incompetent and impersonal. It's clear to me that they are more interested in one's pocketbook than anything else. Again, if you're looking for a compassionate and caring environment, avoid Gearing Up.
Recently a pup was brought into your office. He was turned away because of your fees to treat him & no options to try. At the least you could have recommended another ER. He had 15 seizures that night. His family brought him in & you wanted money; treated him but it was too late because of your incompetence & he had to be put down. When she paid $800 of the bill with care credit, & most likely not the right treatment, you then told her she could not take his body home until she paid more money ($97) & you told her that she had to have that within 72 hrs or you would dump his body. What kind of vet is that cold and callous to a grieving family? No one should go to this ER to have their pet treated! Drive the extra miles & find a more compassionate & professional vet who may be able to save your pup's life. Avoid Dr. Christian Hoyt who sentenced this pup to death by his incompetence. Run free at the bridge little Christopher. You were loved so much by your family and will be so missed.
Pg 2 It breaks my heart for her and her daughter. And when someone called and spoke to you ... Dr. Christian Hoyt, one of the most inhumane Vets She has ever spoken to. He was very matter of fact and did not care. Asked me to call back tomorrow and speak to Nathan their Business Office Manager. I hope no one in your family ever need help with one of there pets and they get treated like you treated my friend !! This world is full of hate and what ever happen to compassion for one another. This makes me sick and so do YOU !!!! RIP Christopher ����������������
Brought My Dog .. Pay 115$ i was there for more than 1 hour to let me know that the seizure was due his age and for them to monitor him for one night I was to pay an amount that I was like "What".... The dr not even suggested what to do in case of a seizure... I will not recommend this place to anyone !!!
This place is awful. They are solely a cattle herding money hungry establishment. They don't allow the parents to talk directly with the therapists and don't allow other psychiatrists to talk directly with the therapists which is terrible. The admin staff is rude and unprofessional. They do a great injustice to their patients by running a counseling establishment this way.
We took our pregnant Chihuahua here 1 hour after she started into labor.That was at 9:00 PM. We had called ahead to make sure they knew we were coming. When we arrived, Dr Ramirez examined her and we told her our Veterinarian had said that the puppy was large and she would not be able to deliver it herself. This is why we were at an emergency facility. They allowed her to labor until 3:00 AM. At this time they finally got to her. By this time the sac was protruding from her vulva. She was exhausted. When the Caesarian Section was finished , they informed us that Sara was fine. The baby had died. This puppy was kicking around all day prior to surgery. When asked why they didn't do the surgery earlier, Dr Bridges said it was because they had other surgeries to do that obviously took precedence over hers. They should have told us this and we would have taken her to another facility. This beautiful, sweet puppy did not have to die.
I have been going to Paws & Claws for 11 years now. I moved to Lewisville from Plano 6 years ago, and still drive to P&C because of the care I've gotten for my dogs and cats there. I totally believe in the holistic approach, and I believe my critters have lived longer, healthier lives. Yes, it can be expensive, but I feel I have spent less in the long run because my pets are healthier. My experiences in the last 11 years start with Dr. Shawn properly diagnosing my dog Cody after my previous vet got it wrong, to giving me his personal cell phone number when I needed to reach him concerning my cat Bailey.
Choosing the right vet for your pet can be tough. After all, your furry friend can't tell you how he or she feels about the doctor. Even though you're not the one treated by the vet, whoever your animal sees is obviously your decision. Since many veterinary diseases and injuries can turn into emergencies very quickly, it's important to have a go-to vet. This way, you can ensure you'll know whom to see when your animal needs care.
Speak to your friends and family about vets who've treated their pets. You can even talk to your groomer or an animal shelter worker for referrals. When you visit the clinics you've been referred to, check that the facility is clean, animals are separated and the staff is calm and courteous. Not all clinics are American Animal Hospital Association accredited. This accreditation isn't a legal necessity, though a clinic that's AAHA-accredited is guaranteed to offer high-quality medical care. To receive accreditation, the clinic has to meet the AAHA's standards in the areas of facility, equipment and quality care.
If you're looking for a specialist, you want to make sure he or she is board-certified to practice in that specific area of animal medicine. You'll want to make sure your vet is also convenient to visit, so there are factors to take into account.
The type of animal you own should play a part in which vet you choose as well. While your options are vast if you have a dog or cat, you may have to visit an avian clinic for your bird or an exotics clinic for your snake.
Just as there are many types of doctors, there are many types of vets. Some focus on livestock or house pets, while others may specialize in dentistry or surgery. They may work in a veterinary clinic or zoo, working specifically with the animals housed there, or travel to farms to work with livestock. Since horse racing and other equestrian activities are so popular, some vets are trained to work just with horses.
Diseases, like malaria and yellow fever are also transmitted through animals. Some vets have insight to diseases that affect both humans and animals. Vets have contributed to the treatment and cure of many diseases that plagued both humans and their furry friends.
Government agencies employ veterinarians as well. When an animal comes from a foreign land, these vets quarantine them and check for any diseases that may be present in an effort to control new diseases that can be brought into the country. Other Specific types of vets include:
A vet assistant works alongside the veterinarian and helps out around the clinic. In some cases, they may assist vets in surgery or restrain struggling animals during tests or lab work. The everyday duties of a veterinary assistant include; monitoring and caring for animals after surgery, keeping medical records, cleaning animals' teeth, feeding and bathing them, cleaning cages, sterilizing surgical equipment, giving animals medication, collecting samples for testing and performing laboratory tests, and offering grief counseling to pet owners.
It's a good idea to bring your pet to the vet regularly. This way, he or she becomes familiar and comfortable with the care providers, and you can stay on top of your pet's preventative care. If the animal is small enough, bring it to the office in a carrier. Just as you visit the doctor for a yearly check up, you should bring in your pet for regular check ups as well. During a routine veterinary visit, the vet will probably begin by asking you if there have been any changes in your pet's behavior or habits.
The vet will then take your pet's vitals, like weight, temperature, pulse and respiration rate, and perform a physical examination of the pet. During a physical exam, the vet checks the abdomen for swollen organs, and the legs, feet and joints for any potential problems. Depending on the age, breed or condition of your pet, your veterinarian may also check the eyes, ears and mouth.
When your vet conducts a full body examination, he or she will check out your pet's coat and skin, noting any hair loss, itchy spots or lumps. Keep note of your animal's shedding habits so you can let the vet know if anything seems abnormal. The vet will check for parasites, fleas, ticks, mites and heartworms as well.
Vaccinations are also important to your pet, especially if you have a cat or a dog, and your vet will suggest that you make sure they're current. Keeping up to date with vaccinations can prevent your furry friend from getting distemper, rabies, hepatitis and lyme disease. Some vaccinations last longer than others, so speak to your doctor about staying caught up with your animal's shots.
Just like your own health insurance, you want to make sure your animal is covered before he or she needs veterinary services. Some common animal surgeries can cost thousands of dollars, and you don't want to end up having to foot a surprise bill that costs more than your paycheck.
There's no set price for pet health insurance. Costs can depend on factors such as where you live, the age and breed of your pet, and how much coverage you want. Before you take out a pet insurance policy, you'll want to meet with your vet to go over what he or she thinks your animal should be covered for. Many vets believe that you should make sure cancer, chronic disease, hereditary and congenital disease, and common breed-related medical conditions are all addressed in your policy.
Some pet owners can't afford insurance for their pet, so there are other options to make paying for surprise pet visits as easy as possible. Some pet stores have wellness plans - which tend to be much cheaper than an insurance policy - that offer shots, check ups, screenings and discounts on various procedures your pet may need. A lot of veterinary offices offer payment plans for pricey procedures as well, as long as you have decent credit history. For a last-ditch option, there are even privately funded organizations that offer pet owners financial aid for their pet's treatments.
