Last fall, I scheduled a regular spay with Scatter Creek Animal Clinic in Rochester. It was all set up for me to go in, fill out some papers, drop off my dog, and pick her up the next day.
What I encountered was a salesman, not a veterinarian, and certainly not a man I would trust with my animals health.
He refused to do the surgery because he claimed my dog needed to be on a 'special' diet consisting of high priced raw meat, which of course, I could buy directly from him. (He made sure I had a whole list of available options without a guaranteed price). I guess meat changes prices like oil?
He said that my dog needed to lose 5 lbs on this special meat diet, that he insisted I needed to salt the meat with organic sea salt!
He then, charged me $35 for his sales pitch.
Obviously, I found another vet. If you are vet searching, Ford's Prairie on Old 99 closer to Centralia is ok. They aren't the best, but compared to Scatter Creek... I'll take Ford's any day.
For serious pet issues and trauma, I Highly Recommend the Tacoma Animal Hospital on 56th. Great Care! Great Surgeons!
Avoid Scatter Creek!
