MY DOG HAS DIED AFTER ACACIA VISIT.
My family had an 80 pound beautiful, healthy, young Bluetick Coonhound that was still with us only 48 hours ago. She passed at 5.5 years of age. Her name was Paisley.
On May 15th, I had taken Paisley into Acacia pet clinic because she had stopped eating, barely would drink water, would lay flat on the ground still or not move a muscle for extended periods of time, and had visual swelling on her left side lower abdomen (approximately the stomach region). Our initial guess was bloat or some other stomach problem. We immediately brought her in for a full physical evaluation and expected the doctor (Shazia) to know what to do. The clinic performed a blood panel as well as an X-ray to determine if there was noticeable bloat. Neither test showed definite signs of problems, yet there was obviously something seriously wrong with Paisley. I was reassured by the doctor that a bacterial infection could have taken place, and that antibiotics would be a good solution for Paisley.
We were given up to two weeks of antibiotics, and for the next weeks, we kept her on this regimen and monitored her as full recovery was explained to take possibly 3 weeks or more. Within the first week, Paisley became more active than before (considering she was almost bed-ridden prior), so we believed that things were getting better. Paisley never fully recovered, and just before we were to take her back in, she suddenly passed away the morning of June 18, 2017.
Necropsy found an approximately 8-9" long barbeque skewer in her stomach that had punctured her organs, causing internal hemorrhaging, which she finally succumbed to. The second vet I took Paisley to for necropsy asked if the skewer showed up on the ultrasound. But an ultrasound was never offered.
If your pet has a serious problem, DO NOT TAKE HIM/HER TO ACACIA PET CLINIC.
My poor baby's photo is attached. Paisley you will be missed.

The staff is always so sweet, and the doctors really take the time to explain everything and take care of my dog. I was so surprised when Dr. Curley took the time to clip my dog's nails and administer her shots! Usually the techs do that stuff! I highly recommend this clinic.

I have had a few dogs in my life time but I can honestly say I have never felt so pleased with a veterinarian as I have with Acacia! Their staff has always friendly and thorough about everything they do. They are helpful and just all around caring people. Ive dealt with clinics that made me feel they were going to offer me every service under the sun to get me to pay for additional services not needed. Acacia is not like that! They are real and that is not easy to find. I would recommend them to anyone that wants complete satisfaction from their animal.
