First the good...Dr Seymore replaced ligaments in both rear legs on my Beagle, and did a great job. However, DO NOT TRUST YOUR PET with DR BECKET! We took our (then) 12 year old Beagle, Mocha, in for removal of a tumor on his hind end. While he was under the anesthesia, Dr Becket removed a tooth. When we got Mocha home, he seemed OK, but I soon noticed that he was completely DEAF. When he went in to for his surgery, his hearing was perfect....PERFECT....not at all diminished. He came home completely DEAF. When confronted, Dr Becket claimed that older pets can lose their hearing, and blew us off. We researched and found evidence that if a dog is under anesthesia for a tooth extraction, care must be used in the placement of the head, or DEAFNESS MAY OCCUR. We provided Dr Becket the research data, and the e-mail address of the research facility. She has yet to even acknowledge her own potential fault in this. Next...our cat behaves miserably for anyone but us. So annually, for the past several years, we have had her shots, exams, and trimming done at Jackson Vet. Realizing the inability to handle her, they have always placed a containment ""bubble"" over her crate and introduced a gas to gentle anesthesize her. She always recovered quickly and without incident. This week, we left her for what we thought was the same treatment. However, when I picked her up, I was told that because of the expense of the gas used in the past, they, without discussion with me, decided to use injection. They joked about the ""brave technician"" who used kevlar gloves to hold her. She was laying in her crate when I brought her home, with the explanation that she could be groggy for up to 12 hours. For the next 24 hours, she was unable to do anything but pathetically pull herself a few inches with her front paws. She wet herself twice and was unable to get out of her own urine. We are in the 3rd day home and she is still unstable while walking, barely eating, and not drinking water....she has been physically and mentally traumatized. I have to lift her into her litter box. All I have gotten in my calls is, basically, ""you can bring her in and Dr Becket will look at her"".....she will only be further traumatized. These experiences have robbed both of our pets of their quality of life, and have impacted our enjoyment of them around the home.
