VCA10234 Pacific Ave Tacoma, Washington United States of America
VCA Not concerned about the Reason for visit, only want to upsell expensive services Tacoma, Washington
Fast forward to this week: We took our dog to an old fashioned vet recommended by a friend. He gave our Rocky and extended exam, couldn't feel any problems with his legs, but acknowledged they were indeed causing him alot of pain. After completing an Xray he came in with the news that Rocky was suffering from extensive bone cancer in his hip and spine. We had no choice but to put him out of his misery.
This cancer was fast moving and quite debilitating. Had the VCA doctor listened to us, and tried a bit harder to determine the cause of our dog's pain and sudden appearance of multiple lumps, we maybe could have headed off the loss of over 30 pounds, and the almost 3 months of extreme pain he suffered because we thought he could get better.
Veterinary medicine should be about more than just convincing people to spend money on needless procedures before even trying to find out what the problem is.
