*Author of original report: UPDATE
Twice daily treatments with corn cream, hyaluronic acid, customized boots, pain medication and nine months later, my dogs foot became swollen & seriously infected. It quickly became obviously that this wasnt, after all, a corn. I had his foot re-examined & x-rayed again only to find out the poor guy had FOUR stones lodged in his paw. These rocks were clearly visible on the x-ray from Metzgers after comparing the two. [continued below]....
I contacted Fred Metzger to let him know about this serious oversight. He replied, providing some experts feedback, who also immediately identified the stones as stones not a corn.
In the end, Metzger wanted to simply refund my office visit. No apology for the months of stress & pain. Moreover, he flatly refused to consider reimbursing me for the tons of money spent on lotions, potions, boots & treatment for my dogs corn. I wasnt asking for the thousands I laid out for surgery to correct this rather just the out of pocket expenses incurred
in treating this as a corn.
Stay away! If these guys cant tell the difference between a superficial corn on a dogs pad and numerous rocks embedded deep in a paw, why would you trust them? Its one thing to make a mistake its another to own up to it & make it right. Ridiculous & a total rip-off!
