My pet Pig Rachel was having problems with her bottom lip as she was pushing it forward constantly causing her pain. It was determined by her vet John Case on September 29th that lower incisors #2 at the bottom jaw were curving and coming in front of incisor #1 causing pain and forwaard extension of her teeth. Dr. Case recommended Dr Bellows, being tht he has done work on Dr Case's own dog. I received an appointment for the following morning and took my dear Rachel to the board certified veterinary dentist Dr. Bellows.

On the morning of the 30th I arrived at the Hometown Animal Hospital & Dental Clinic where Dr Bellows has his practiced. After checking Rachel out and taking tests and xrays, he called me that afternoon to tell me that she needed for 3 front insicors to be removed and I agreed to the procedure and costs. Thinking that he knows what he was doing in relation to the pig medical needs and requirements, I went to pick up Rachel at the end of the day. She was larthargic and just on her 4 paws but awake. I took her home with some pain in her throat due to the noise she was making. I was told that the noise comes from the soreness of the incubation process and the tube that was stuck down her throat and that it would go away. When I took her home that evening, she did not want to eat and her eyes were closed and she was not breathing properly but she was awake.

The following day October 1st I was told again that her breathing that way was due to the incubation and that it would pass. She spent the day and night not eating anything and with her eyes closed. I called my vet and Dr bellows that night in regard to her condition. My vet called back to let me know to give her some honey to see if it will wake her up even more. She did not want to take it that night. She did take it in the morning and her eyes opened for about 3 minutes. Dr bellows never called back that night, but he did called the mornig of the 2nd and he told me to take her to my vet Dr Case. I called Dr Case office and let them know I was on my way because I felt there was something wrong. I put her in my truck and went over and Dr. case immediate noticed she was having trouble breathing and took steps to get her breathing properly. She died 15 minutes later. I trust Dr. Case because he did her hystorectomy and she had gone under anesthesia twice with him with no problem.

I believe that something Dr. bellows did during the removal of those 3 teeth caused the death of my sweet Rachel. An animal autopsy is being performed for which I am sure the cause will lead back to Dr. Bellows. Dr. bellows used Morphine which he heard from the internet as being used on large pigs and used it in what he thought was the appropriate dosages and he used other products. He either overdosed her or gave her improper products. This will all come out with the autopsy.

She went in to remove 3 teeth and ended up dead. If I kwen , I would have left her with the tooth pain.

My 6 lb toy poodle had a dental infection and periodontal problem. To be especially careful I  brought her to a dental specialist for cats and dogs  (http://www.dentalvet.com/) owned and run by Dr Jan Bellows.

After he gave my dog many extensive tests: blood, x-rays, etc.he assured me that she was perfectly healthy  and would be an excellent candidate for dental surgery. He was going to extract the infected tooth and any other teeth suspected of problems. The same day, during the surgical procedure he phoned me to say he found another problem tooth and he asked for permission to extract it; I agreed to this.

 As he requested, four hours later I came to get her.  The dog was finally brought to me but she gave no indication of recognizing me, and she was panting vigorously and unable to stand steadily, But, Dr. Bellows said take her home.

He said she will fully recover very shortly.  I took her home and she became more stressed and lethargic. I called Dr. Bellows and he said "give her some maple syrup".  Within two hours of coming home, she stopped breathing and died. my neighbor and I tried CPR, heart massage, everything the vet (who was on the speaker phone with us) said to do.  Unfortunately, I did not read the reports written about Dr. Bellows before the fatal outcome. The stories I read are too eerily similar to mine.  I want to know how other animal lovers can be warned before it happens to their pet..
