In my decades working with many veterinarians in Oregon, California, Michigan, New York, and Ohio, and based on my discussions with several veterinarians about how Dr. Earp handled my dog's case, and based on his personally abusive treatment of me via several voice-mails, I'd conclude that Dr. Ron Earp is not trustworthy, not competent to handle complicated conditions that require proficiency with diagnosis and with which diagnostic tests to order, and that Dr. Earp uses a business strategy regarding profiting to dictate how he medically treats many of his animals. A very unusual strategy, done to attract a greater volume of clients. What he does is actually minimize exams, tests, lab work, x-rays, to save clients money, and in this way, he generates a larger clientele. Unethical. Please search drronearp blogspot for a revealing the extent of Dr. Earp's poor medical skill. Please be aware. Please. I've also spoken with two other dog owners whose dogs were miscared for my Dr. Earp. The owners were intelligent to right away seek another veterinarian and immediately received diagnoses of such things as skin sores and infections that Dr. Earp did not find, and abdominal problems that were left undetected by Dr. Earp because he ignored doing simple rectal exams and abdominal xrays.
