I took an appointment for my dog.
She is an old pooch and recently she has been lethargic and had difficulty to stand up.
She also have a skin allergy.
I explain to the vet that she had a skin problem but also that lethargy problem.
The day of the appointment my dog was a bit more energetic but still not herself.
The vet barely touch my dog. She prescribe a very expansive antibiotic for her skin problem.
After that she told me that she couldn't see anything wrong other than the skin problem.
The vet never checked her teeth, her ears, her articularions even after I told the vet that I suspect my pooch of having a bit of arthritis.
I payed £100 for nothing because now my dog is really bad, her neck is really swollen and stiff and she can't walk at all. She is obviously suffering a lot!
At two or three days ago just after my appointment, my friend told me that I shouldn't be worried for my dog and insist on the fact that a vet would never miss something that big...
Well apparently it is possible.
It is a bank holiday weekend so an appointment with a vet now will be an emergency appointment.
I hope that it is not too late to cure my dog from whatever she is suffering from.
We are very sorry to hear that you feel this way and that your dog is still not well. We would generally recommend a follow up appointment to see the response to treatment anyway but would be more than happy to see you sooner if further symptoms develop and you feel things are not progressing as you would like. We can assure you we are open for routine appointments over the bank holiday. Please contact us at the surgery to discuss your concerns further and to arrange for us to see your dog again. Thank you.
