Awful Place! 1/20/2012

I found a stray kitten outside and I have small children who wanted to keep her. I was looking for a vet to bring the kitten to so that I could have her checked out and it would be safe for my kids. I found Dr. V. I brought my kitten there and it was the worst mistake ever! The place was old and dirty, it was over crowded and the people are rude. While in the exam room the tech was holding and playing with the kitten. she was putting her hand in the kittens mouth and petting her. The kitten was playing back and nipped her playfully. It was very hard to understand the Dr. After the office visit we went home. 3 days later I get a phone call saying they need to quarantine my kitten because she has rabies. They told me my kitten viciously bit the tech who was 9 mo. pregnant. I find out that the tech herself had never gotten any vaccinations!! My kitten did not viciously bite the tech she was playing like kittens do, the office got very nasty and told me they would take legal actions if I did not bring the cat to be quarantined for 15 days. I was so upset, my kitten had not shown any signs of having rabies or any other sicknesses and I told them that she was already separated in my house being watched because I had another cat and was waiting for her bloodwork to come back to see if I could allow my two cats to interact. They refused to give me my blood work results for my kitten. They told me if I brought the cat back in they would "TEST HER FOR RABIES", and they would observe her for a few days, they would give me the bloodwork results, and then let me take her home. I refused. Thank god I did because the only way you can test for rabies is to Kill the animal! You CANNOT test for rabies without killing the animal! To this day my kitten is very healthy and happy. Shame on them for having a technician/assistant work in their office without vaccinations. They are not a respectable vets office and I would not recommend them to anyone. It is not safe there or clean. You don't know what they will do! more
