My cat should have been recognized as terminal Mar 12 ,2015 , instead it went undiagnosed and I had to put it down myself because it started suffering Mar. 16, 2015 , 5:30 am., What a horrific experience I'll never get out of my mind.. As soon as this VCA found out my cat was dead I received an electronic invoice. I'm thinking play with peoples emotions and drain their wallets is what all these VCA'S are all about . I'm never brining my cats here again , I only have two left. . I lost two cats in two years at this VCA. The first one I think was inadvertently injured at this VCA , to the point that it lost the use of its rear legs and I had to have it put down ,they also lied about it eating while there. , total cost $1100.00 , the second one should have been put down when I suggested it , total cost $267.00 . When a cat quits eating they are dying , period. I don't trust them anymore. You can't really read people's motives but I've got a sneaking suspicion that I'm correct. The love and affection a person has for their pet has no legal standing and some vet's take advantage of this so they string you along drain your wallet and your pet dies anyway. There is a word for that ,it's called immoral. Do your self a favor and bring your pet to a small animal clinic that's not a company . They will tell you the truth and won't take you for a bunch of money. God will make right the wrongs of time. I was told my cat was sick on sun 15th but that was it , no recommendation. when I told VCA that I had to put down my own cat I asked if the recommendation would have been to euthanize her. the answer was yes but this was after the fact. How much do you want to bet if I had not told them my cat was dead I would have been encouraged to bring my cat in for more treatment which means more money. The cat had terminal mouth and throat cancer and it does not seem credible that a vet with expertise in dentistry for small animals didn't recognize that ,but then again there is no money in a dead cat. This particular vet establishment has been a charnel house for my cats. Like I said god keeps a record of everything.
