My family have been clients of doctor Thomas' for YEARS! We even took animals to his father (who is a great doctor) before he had his own practice. A couple years ago, my mother and I had a cat and kitten that had skin issues. The mother was very tiny, and instead of using his judgment by giving her a smaller dose of medicine, he gave her a full amount. Two days later, she died of kidney failure. Since then, my mother and I have not taken our pets to him, but my grandmother and aunt remained loyal customers- even close ""friends"".
This year, my grandmothers dog has been sick. He wrote it off as pancreatic issues without doing X-rays or anything. This morning, the dog went lifeless. We tried getting hold of dr Thomas, but the office Is closed every wed. We called his house phone because they have been considered family friends for quite some time, he answered the phone and said ""I am not in the office, stop calling"". So, we took the dog to another vet. the doctor found a grapefruit size tumor attached to the dogs spleen. He said if it was caught in time, we could have done surgery. But at this stage, there was no hope, so we had to put her down. On two separate occasions, he has shown his carelessness. I don't believe his heart is in his practice. I would not recommend his as your vet.
