This place not only rips you off, but it also tortures your pet with unnecessary testing. My chihuahua had been having diarrhea and gas for the past 3 days and seemed uncomfortable. He was seen by Dr. Morfin, whom misdiagnosed him with pancreatitis and said that my dog needed to be hospitalized. He ordered an IV to give him fluids; eventhough, we told him that he wasn't dehydrated. He also ordered an assortment of tests -- a complete blood work, a pancreatitis test, x-rays, a physical. And, even before he had the test results, they injected him with an antibiotic, a pain killer, and an anti-acid -- all pretty strong medications from what I've read on the internet. When I called to find out the results of the tests, the doctor did not answer my call until the fifth time I called. He said that all my dog had was an irritated stomach and some gas. But, he still wanted to keep him overnight to have him re-evaluated the next day. We declined and went to go pick him up. I questioned the doctor on why they'd performed so many tests and given him so much medication. I was told that since I did not trust him, I should find another veterinarian. I was charged $886.00.\r
But, that's not the worst part. MY DOG HAS NOT BEEN THE SAME SINCE. The first 48 hours were the worst. He was constantly whimpering, he couldn't walk, he wouldn't eat, he wouldn't drink, he wouldn't go pee, he wouldn't go poo, he wouldn't move at all. He wouldn't even acknowledge me whenever I called him -- he seemed to be in a catatonic state. His eyes were extremely dilated and, at times, seemed to be having hallucinations. Alarmed at the state my dog was in, I called Ivie the very next day. I call the hospital and made an appointment with Dr. Salinger. I told them that I was not going to pay for the appointment because whatever they had done or given him the day before had made him extremely ill. However, thirty minutes before my appointment, I received a phone call from them cancelling my appointment. Their explanation for the cancellation was that ""I did not trust them"". \r
Today is the third day and he's still not well. He still has diarrhea, his pee is almost orange, he can barely move, he's hardly eating or drinking, and he stills cries out in pain whenever I try to pick him up. Because of the outrageous amount that I was charged at Ivie and; due to the fact, that I'm on disability, I can't afford to take my dog to another vet.
