STAY AWAY from VRCC emergency department!! 11/10/2017

Julie Aiello in the emergency department at the VRCC should not be "practicing" veterinary medicine!!! She wanted to kill my dog, said that the dog would be dead within 4 days. I refused, my dog has been happy, enjoying life for almost a year, and still going strong. I’m so glad that I did not allow her to kill my precious, loving, and gentle dog. At the advice of my normal vet to get an urgent ultrasound, we sat in the car, in the VRCC parking lot for 5 hours waiting to be seen. Diagnosis was a huge, inoperable, mass on the dog’s liver. She immediately recommended a biopsy. I asked her why we would want a biopsy if it was so bad that it was inoperable? She just glared at me, so I asked if chemotherapy would be the only option if the biopsy came back as malignant? She responded “yes”. Since the dog was old, I said we won’t make the poor thing suffer through chemo. Julie’s immediate reply, in a cold manner, was “do you want to euthanize the dog now?”. I told her “no, I don’t want to euthanize yet”. Julie, again without compassion, and very coldly, simply said “why not?”. It seems like Julie has some sort of burnout like PTSD, either that or she has never had any compassion, and is just built that way. She has no business being in the pet care industry. I have a hunch that my dog would not have lasted more than a few days if I had allowed her to perform a “biopsy” (more likely an internal butchering session). She told me that the dog would not last more than 4 days, so if that were true, why would we need a biopsy? It feels like Julie was trying to get approval for any procedure that she could, just for the money. One thing is certain; she does not have my dog’s best interest in mind. I honestly believe that she would have caused such damage that the dog would surely have suffered horribly and died. 2 days later, whatever was wrong with the dog just disappeared, the dog was back to normal, eating, playing, begging for treats, wanting to go for walks and rides, and has continued to be happy for going on a year! more
