We're gonna call this facility a "CheapoVet" to protect the innocent. Just to be clear, there are only a few "discount" providers in this city so you're gonna need to do a search and figure it our for yourself. This provider could be a Hacks for Less, Value Tards, Afford-O-Fake, Discount Doofus, Jiffy Vet, Joke in the Box, you get the idea............
....A CheapoVet Clinic in a city that sounds like Melevue WA....
Mentioned in your page somewhere is how pets are held down and gassed until they gag on the gas, hyperventilate, and pass out. That's how things were done there. I worked for them for 5 months and I can confidently say that it was the worst decision of my life, and I feel like a terrible person for ever accepting a job there, even if I did need the money!
The doctor, one of many anyway, Dr. Crack Head, would have us (2 or more staff) lay on a big dog 40#+ while another held the mask on their face! Bunnies and cats were wrapped in a towel and gassed the same way! They were also nearly ALWAYS mistreated and mishandled.
Sedation was a JOKE! It was called H.A.G for Ace, Glycol and Hydromorphone? Anyway, the densities of the drugs were not equal, and pets would get more of one medication than safe for them than if it had been done with proper, safe sedation. They never even shook the bottle to TRY to make it safer... not like it would do much anyway, but still! Most pets did NOT receive blood panels before the drugs were given either. The most the vet did was to make sure they didn't have a heart murmur that she caught within .25 seconds of "listening". NOT! Needless to say, the pets were NEVER safe!
On more than one occasion while I was working there, pets were sent out the door after surgery that could not even walk. Talk about sickening! None received IV's and if they did the drip rate was not checked by the veterinarian.
Pain management was another thing that was mid-evil. Orthopedic procedures did not receive proper pain management. They were sent home with Tramadol & Rimadyl, no pain patches, no Morphine, nothing! Only basic medications that did not cover the full extent of their pain. Injections for pain were also routinely not given at that clinic, all CheapoVet Clinics in this particular group, really.
And the equipment!! Might as well been using rocks. The "dental machine" was years old and missing multiple screws and parts. It was help together with DUCT TAPE. LITERALLY. Procedures were never canceled even though the machine was broken, the water for the scaler did not work, and the drill was unsafe for the staff to use, not to mention for pets. We were told to continue using that death trap, and the broken hand tools that no one was trained on as well.
As for lying to clients about how their pets were treated, that happened daily! My coworkers (when I worked there) were actually compassionate to the pets and treated them as they would their own, however there were a few people who we made sure didn't last long due to how they treated the animals. We couldn't control the care the animal received, but we could keep them safe from physical abuse from employee's and make sure they were treated with love, care and compassion.
The doctors routinely sedated pets that were too noisy or rambunctious, scared, or nervous WITHOUT the owners consent! They never gave them a chance. The pets were often manhandled by the vets AND were totally unsupervised while under sedation, which is required by LAW! Staff would have to lie to owners saying their pet did great and everything went without incident, etc. It was AWFUL!
