Their haste caused the untimely death of my dog 11/19/2007

we brought our 7 year old dog in for her routine shots on a Friday afternoon. before the doctor did anything, we pointed out a few nodules on her front leg. the doctor said that it may be cancerous mast cell tumors but she will biopsy to be sure. she took a scrape of the nodules, and then continued with her exam where she vaccinated our dog and sent us home. the next day, our sweet girl was lethargic. by sunday - 48 hours later - she could hardly walk and wouldnt eat. i brought her back to EAAC first thing Monday morning where they kept her to give her fluids and x-ray her. at the end of the day, i returned to pick her up and the doctor gave me her x-rays and simply said that if she gets worse, take her to the emergency vet up on Ashford Dunwoody. No one helped me carry my 70 pound dog across the street to my car. By the time I made it home and my poor girl colapsed on the ground, I loaded her up and drove like a mad person to the emergency vet. they wheeled her in on a gurney and within 5 minutes she crashed and they tried to revive her to no avail. when we showed the vet the x-rays that EAAC took that afternoon, the doctor said that her whole body was filled with cancer and that she NEVER should have been vaccinated without running the tests first to determine what her nodules were. he said that introducing the vaccine made her immune system attack that foreign substance further weakening her ability to fight the cancer. granted, she would have passed away within the year but to the haste of EAAC forced us to lose her before she was really ready to stop fighting. the card that EAAC sent us with condolences was like a knife in the heart. we never went back with our other dog, and when we got him a new companion - she never set a paw in that place. Pros: convenience Cons: not thorough, not caring, not apologetic more
