Went to VCA because they were the only ones open and they did horrible job on my show dog.  They were unable to do the work authorized properly, and did work on my dog that I did not authorize, charging me for the "extra" work and exorbitant fee at that.  Shaved the hair on my show afghan hound all over, just for a tooth removal.  Legs, feet, side... legs for anesthesia, feet because they found a foxtail on the coat around the foot and the side for a pain patch.  I've worked for veterinarians for years, you use alcohol to dampen the hair down on the leg for anesthesia, you comb the hair if you want to remove foxtails, don't shave 5" of hair, 7" up the leg; and you would apply a pain patch where hair is sparse anyway; not shaving 13" of hair off the side of a show dog. 

Then I was sold antibiotics for $80+ for a week and they didn't work anyway.  I ended up using a home remedy to fix the infection they caused by feeding the dog hard food after major dental surgery.  (Someone had broken into my home, fed the dog some meat and when the dog tried to bite them, he punched the dog in the face and broke his tooth.)  This whole thing cost me close to $300  for the removal of one tooth and some antibiotics because I paid them for things I did not authorize.
