we took our cat in as she was very sick. we were subjected to expensive, uneccissary, and inconclusive tests. she was dishonest about the life span of a cat, making it seem like our elderly cat would live many years. tried to convince us to take her all the way to portland oregon to admit her to a $1000 a day hospital to do still more tests. treated us poorly when we couldnt afford it. made comments like 'its what i would do for MY cat, but its like FAMILY. ' as though we werent torn up enough about not being able to afford thousands of dollars to 'maybe' find out whats wrong with the cat we have had for 13 years.\r
when she got worse we took her to a pet emergency room, and were told the REAL life span of a cat, which makes our cat pretty old. i checked around and found this to be true. we spoke with the vet after the emergency room event and she acted like it was our fault our cat got worse. said: you didnt do what i TOLD you to do. (we had been dosing her with meds for 10 days) refused to answer questions, lectured us, gave conflicting information, and didnt tell us what we could expect from the e.r. treatment cause she refused to look at the report and said: they probably used a fast medicine that wont last. however if she had LOOKED at the paper she was being offered she would have known, and told us exactly how long it should last.\r
she performed tests and sent them out to specialists at great cost, and told us afterword that those tests didnt neccesarily tell her anything anyhow. we wound up treating her for 3 different things she 'might' have which we could have done with just one test.\r
we now must go to another vet to see what to do from here. what a rip off. luckily the animal emergency was honest with us. we should have gone there instead of critter calls, also known as farm house veterinary.\r
this lady likes to guilt and pressure you into spending big bucks. if she can't fix your animal, and you can't spend a ton, expect to be treated shabbily.
Pros: very good at soaking you for everything you're worth.
Cons: dishonest, unproffessional (sticky dirty clippers, red waste on table), will chew you out.
