could have cost my dog her ability to walk 9/19/2014

Went there because they are considered an URGENT CARE vet. My 3 year old dog couldn't move her hind. The Vet did a neuro exam and body exam and took bloodwork and x-rays. After the neuro exam and x-rays she was diagnosed as having probably fallen on her good hip. His instructions were to take her home and let her be a couch potato for a week on pain meds. Also When we looked at the x-rays he told us it wasnt a disc issue because he could not see any issues on the x-ray, (apparently all the other vets know that is no the case and you need to do a mri or ct scan to make sure there are no issues). So at that point my dog couldnt move her hind at ALL and wasnt peeing. (Sign of nuero issue to MOSt vets. They wouldnt express her bladder they said she would pee on her own even though they told me her bladder looked uncomfortably full. They gave us pain meds and her a shot for pain. We went home, my dog was expelling feces involuntarily (another sign neuro issue to MOST vets). When I called them they told me to GIVE HER MORE PAIN MEDS,she was probably expelling feces because she was relaxed from the shot. they told me to watch her if she wasnt better to bring her back that night. Went to regular vet within hours, it was clear as soon as the dog walked in her body was postured and she NEEDED A SCAN ASAP AND SHE NEEDED SURGERY THAT NIGHT!!! We spent a wasted 695.00 at Greenfield center that should have gone towards our dog's 6,500 ct scan and emergency surgery. DO not take a seriously ill dog here , I love my animals and rarely review but I am so so upset at an obvious mis-diagnosis at so many steps along the visit there. more
