I recently went shopping at for pet supplies. I had a promotional coupon for a free vet exam from Banfield hospital located inside the pet store. Since I was already there shopping and it was free I decided to get a second opinon on a hot spot that was affecting my lab's face. I already took him to his vet, but since it was free, and I was already there, I figured why not. When the exam was over all of the tests they wanted to run + the meds came to an estimated cost of $380.00. Needless to say I declined all of the tests accept for one, and stuck to my dogs #1 vet's original advice & my dog is doing great. The staff were very nice though.
