Adobe Veterinary Clinic rip-off! Incompetant services! Mesa Arizona
*Consumer Comment: This vet killed my dog
*Consumer Comment: Adobe Animal Clinic is my first choice
*Consumer Comment: Did you act rudely that day?
We declined most of the redundant testing that the vet recommended and opted for the blood work. When the blood work came back the vet reported not seeing anything conclusive and insisted that she still had something lodged in her belly. So we proceeded to the X-rays which showed nothing abnormal except an enlarged spleen.
During this time the vet had prescribed and dispensed serveral antibiotics, over $60 worth. I reported to him that she was no longer eating or drinking on her own, she was developing respiritory distress and declining rapidly. He still insisted that she had a blockage in her intestines, even though there was no evidence of it.
Finally, we took her to another vet. I brought with me the blood work, X-rays and medications. The new vet told us that the blood work alone indicated that she had tick fever. He also said that even without the bloodwork, based on her symptoms he would have immediately assumed tick fever, especially since it is so prevalent in this area. The medications that the Adobe clinic had dispensed to her were the wrong meds and were not helping her.
When I returned to the Adobe clinic with the meds that had been dispensed, two of which only had one pill missing, I was given $9 in return. When I questioned the difference from the $60 that we paid to $9, I was told that "They don't refund the DISPENSING fee". One of the meds dispensed to her was pepcid, 3 pills for $5, at the drugstore they cost about .20 per pill.
