We brought our dog in for euthanasia and had a horrible experience. The vet could not find our dog's vein and jabbed around inside of him with the needle. causing him to cry out in pain. He tried with the other leg and still could not find it. At the point, Buddy was anxious and scared. We asked if they could give him something to calm him and they said they could only put him under and that giving him valium would not help. When we mentioned that other vet we ha gone to gave a calming injection before euthanasia, the vet tech got defensive and snippy. They finally took him in the back to insert a catheter after failing to find his vein, and the vet tech had to insert it because the vet could not do it. After Buddy was finally euthanized, we called other vets to ask if they gave calming injections before euthanasia, and got a yes from several different vets. Overall it was a horrible experience. Buddy died scared and was hurt by the vet, and the staff was very unsympathetic and rude. I will never go back there, and I never want any other animal or owner to have to go through what we did. Euthanasia is supposed to be a relief for the animal, helping them to avoid unnecessary discomfort in their final days. This was exactly the opposite.
Cons: incompetence, unprofessional/unsympathetic service
