The vet took zero responsibility and claimed that her soars were normal complications.
Take your pets to Guardian or Hermitage. Don't want to see another animal go though this.
Thank you for the heads up.
Hopefully the mods don't merge this into OT because it's important information for pet owners in this city IMO.
I use Dr. Stretch out in Spruce Grove but had to put down my male on the 31st of July after an emergency situation at 2am and Guardian was incredible considering the circumstances.
I hope your girl is alright, all things being considered. It's inexcusable that a DVM can be so grossly negligent. Was the entire leg amputated?
