Killed our cat 10/10/2007

I had been going to Blum for about 10 years and at first loved the place. They diagnosed my puppy who was very sick. But over time the more senior vets left and a new breed has come in and their goal is to soak as much money out of you on each visit as they can. We took our cat in because she had started peeing outside the cat box. We had been told by friends with cats this often happens when the cat has a urinary tract infection or some other kidney or bladder infection. When I got there I was told when by the lady behind the counter that the ct was behind on her shots but that they would probably recommend holding off until they knew what was wrong with the cat. Seemed to make sense as I know with kids they do not like to give them shots when they are sick. So the doctor recommends xrays and blood tests. Not sure why the xrays were needed but he assured me they were. I love my cat so I agreed. he also said that she was behind on her shots ans they should do those now. I asked about what the nurse had said about giving shots to the cat without knowing what was wrong with her. He told me the cat needed the shots as if she bit someone she would have to be impounded and if she got near another cat she could get sick. I told him this was the most mellow cat and NEVER went outside or near other cats. He assured me this was the time to get the shots. I agreed and left $400 lighter still not knowing what was wrong as the xrays showed nothing (shockinig huh). I came home from work the next day to a dead cat. Thanks Blum. more
