Columbia Vets 08-09

posted 5 years ago

Wonderful care for adoptees. When I lost my Murphy last May the vet was amazing, helping me with necropsy and cremation, as well as with my grief. I don't understand the review I saw for 1 of 5. And I know several others who also use Columbia Vets.

Pros: wonderful vets, with good knowledge

Cons: I travel 12 miles to see these vets!!!

Never Again!

posted 7 years ago

My neighbor recommended this Vet. I was new in town. We took our cats for yearly checkups and shots. Mine had her shots, but dental cleanup was recommended.

My friend's cat had his shots, and went into shock on the way home. We immediately took him back to the doctor where they proclaimed him diabetic and epileptic. They wanted us to take him to the ER for another outrageous bill. We had already paid almost $200 each for shots.

It turned out that he was indeed not diabetic at all, but the 3 year vaccination brought that reaction about. It also brought about a seizure, and this vet sent this kitty home. He was not eating, and his kidneys were failing.

Five days later we took him to Parkland where they confirmed that he was in kidney failure and should be euthanized, if not a long battle with kidney disease would ensue.

Columbia was talked out of charging my friend for the extra office visit, and the medication that they had to give him. However, when they billed me for my cat's teeth cleaning, they hit me with a bill for over $600.

They got their money back, even though their actions led to the kitty's death. They never should have given a sick cat a 3 year rabies vaccine. And, it was in his records that he had seizure disorder.

We'll never go back to Columbia again. Animals are expendable. And, their staff are the rudes, most uncaring people that I've ever encountered.

Pros: Convenient location...maybe

Cons: Money is the bottem line here, staff is rude, pets are just animals.
