They Made me Pay a New Patient Fee for my Dying Dog 4/22/2010

We had used this animal hospital in the past for our first dog when it was under the ownership of Dr. Bricker, a friend of the family, years ago.\r \r When I was home from law school, I brought the family dog in to get a second opinion about a blood test, which indicated he had kidney failure. They told me he was very sick and would probably die (less than 50% chance of living), which was already hard to cope with, but then they charged me a new patient vet fee (when it was obvious I would not be coming back) and a doctor visit fee to tell me this. (15 min. visit). Mind you, they just read the blood test from the other office and did absolutely nothing new.\r \r I realize this is a business, but I also overheard the vet behind closed doors telling his assistant that I was stupid for bringing my dog in. (At least close the door all the way).\r \r My dog was my best friend and like a child to me. I do not think that I should have been criticized for seeking a second opinion. Take your dog to more
