Ellicott City Emergency Animal Hospital Complaint - Drs. putting their gouling fees before the care or concern of animal
ELLICOTT CITY (BALTIMORE), MARYLAND -- I had to go to the emergency animal clinic on a Sunday because no vets were open, and she seemed like she was having problems having her pups. Well I was told that they were going to give her a shot to help induce labor and fluids. If that didn't work she would need a c-section. Well he came back about 20 minutes later and said she would need surgery and the cost he worked up was $2200.00. I stated I didn't have that much now and don't know if or where I could borrow it. Well he told me it would have to be paid before taking the dog home and it would be more fees, so I said I guess I would have to take her if nothing could be worked out. Well he gave me the dog and charge me $290.00 on top of that they had the gull to ask me to sign a paper stating I refused care, well after writing a nice note about what happen on the paper I signed my name under the notation not on the line refusing care. I think it is getting pretty BAD when Drs. put their fees before the care of a helpless animal. I like to know what professionals are coming to that they don't care unless you have insurance or MONEY!!!! and some don't care about insurance. Well the dog died, she could not pass her pup and I could not fine anyone open to help.
