Took my sick cat . I was told he needed test tests, bloodwork,even an ultrasound.
Did everything and they still couldn't tell what was excactly was wrong with my cat. 1st visit doc was very nice seemed very professional.2nd visit took my cat for additional bloodwork and another liver sample waited 1hour doctor didn't see my cat, but I saw doctor leave clinic. Nurse came took my cat, came back 15 mins later and said to go home. They only did bloodwork , when doc called with results I told him that I thought he was going to examine my cat that day, but instead I saw him leaving.
His response was oh I was going to lunch". I told my cat was still not better so I took him again. I waited 1hour again . The nurse that took my cat told me he had a will *** sticker so she wasn't going to examine him .
This women didn't want to handle my cat. I had to take him out of his carrier and put on the scale so he could be weighed.Doc finally showed up told me he would do xrays and remove liquid from abdomen. A few days later I got results said that it looked like it was liver infection . I got antibiotics and a prescription for liver medication, so that it would make him better.
I once again told doc that his belly was swollen with liquid and he couldn't breathe right. So I was told to take him in for more liquid removal and this time they would sedate him. Doc called off on the day I took my cat in for procedure. I told attending doc that my cats paws and body felt cold.
She gave me no response. When I got home from work my poor cat couldn't walk and he was very cold. I thought he couldn't walk because of sedative. I tried to keep him warm.
When I woke the next morning I found my cat dying . He was cold and stiff and barely breathing. Took him to er. Told er doc whole story and she told me that they maybe didn't send sample to lab,because my cat was very sick.
The only thing that could be done was to humanely euthanize him. I lost my sweet cat . Vca did not help my cat. They just put him thru painful and expensive tests for nothing.
Now I'm in debt and I have no pet. I had him for 17 years.
