I brought Diesel to the vet because he had eaten the legs (2) off of a stuffed toy and they got obstructed in his bowel. His usual doctor was full and was unable to perform the surgery to remove the obstruction. They called and asked their senior veterinarian to come in and perform the surgery. I was so appreciative because otherwise I would have had to go to the animal hospital for the surgery ($$$). I now wish I would have chosen the latter. The doctor informed us that he removed one foreign body from Diesel and that he was doing well. When we showed up to pick him up however he was in bad shape. He was not willing to walk, he was very lethargic, and was nothing like the dog I dropped off. The doctor inform us that he would usually keep him because he’s not bouncy back as he would expect but they closed in 30 minutes and he was sure that he would be fine. He sent him home with the following; his temperature is lower than it should be (an initial sign of a perforated bowel), he had no desire to eat or drink (also a sign of a perforated bowel), if he was forced to stand up he would walk very slow(this is called guarding probably from the perforated bowel) , and he wasn’t “bouncy back” as expected. Diesel was actually walking so slow to the car that the doctor picked him up and put him in the car. Within 4 hours I had him at the animal hospital in hypovolemic shock(96.5, normal 101). He was lifeless. Within 24 hours from that time he was put down. It appeared that only one of the two legs had been removed which broke the incision to his bowel and from that he was diagnosed with a septic abdomen. The doctor called me Monday to apologize stating verbatim “I know now I made the wrong choice. I thought it would be ok.” I called the owner to request my money be returned to me because it was the doctors negligence that resulted in the death of Diesel. She didn’t return my calls for 4 days. I then placed a review on their Facebook page and heard back from her within hours. She was made aware of my availability and only called me when I was not available. After two weeks I finally got a hold of her. She informed me that she was not responsible for the doctor’s mistakes and that I would need to take that up with him. She also told me that I pulled a “stint” with my post on Facebook and lastly told me that I misperceived the doctor telling me this occurred at his misjudgment.
Not only should this woman never receive another dollar of business in her life but I would hate for anyone to lose a loved one at the hands of the doctors that they trust. This has been a traumatic experience and I couldn’t bear to have anyone else go through it.
Best Ever! – Best place for your dog in the state!
You have to see this place to believe it. They have everything! I love taking my dog here to play in their huge play yard.
My Vet retired so when I tried their's i was overly impressed. Both Dr's were professional and very attentive. The whole clinic had a very welcoming and old school approach. I felt like they weren't selling me stuff, just informing me so I could make a decision.
There is too much to write about so just check them out for yourself!
