Banfield / suffering allowed

Speaking with employees I have found that pets brought in suffering that were to be euthanized were allowed to sit all day for many hours in cages suffering until the "doctor" could be pushed to finally end the suffering. Same "doctor" (a female) strutted around girating an adult dogs amputated tail in her crotch as if it were a penis.This coming from who is supposedly a mature professional.Another of many examples of what goes on behind the doors are a hamster fallen from a high location in the petsmart store contorted and obviously in pain was brought in to be attended to or euthanized was put aside while she the "doctor" continued to eat her lunch saying "it's just a hamster". The employees stated that they are trained to sell at all costs the wellness plans because once the clients are hooked, the money keeps rolling in to banfield, and the other beneficiaries Petsmart who they have an alliance with as well as Mars company who has controlling interests in petsmart and produces many foods and other items under several lables sold in the stores. They should all be ashamed and embarrassed for these and all the many other atrocities occurring there. I will never bring my pet there again ...stay away and be very afraid of Big Brother Vet Box Store

    Ok, that is a mark of a horrible person and doctor, but you can't judge all locations by one crappy doctor. I have worked for private vets who are at least as bad. I have worked for vets who have overbooked holiday boarding and then left your beloved pet in it's cramped carrier for a week at a time. I have also worked for tremendous private vets, as well as 4 different vets at Banfield who were wonderful. And the wellness plan does save many pet owners money. For many people, making monthly payments is the only option for dental care or even a spay or neuter. Bad vets are everywhere, not just in corporate clinics.
