It's 5 weeks in tonight since you left my world and I'm still crying everyday. It wasn't fair the doctors didn't treat you the way you should have been treated and you lost your life because of it. I feel like it's my fault I should have been more tuned into your condition but I trusted them and that was a mistake. You paid with your life and now I'm paying with the sadness and suffering of losing you. I'll never forgive myself for letting you die at your young age of 7 it wasn't fair to you. You're the best cat I ever had and I still love you and miss you so much everyday. I miss--you moochie I still love you.💔💔💔💔💔💔💔

Marge, I’m struggling with guilt over my decision to put my sweet Skipper to sleep also. You’ll find some wonderful supportive people here. You trusted your vet to make the right call. You weren’t wrong to do that. They are human and can make human mistakes too. I’m sorry to hear about your Moochie. I know it hurts.

I also trusted the vets. They couldn't differentiate my girl's symptoms of anxiety and pneumonia. I should've never left her, vet said she'd have a better chance to treat her more aggressively for two days, I asked her if it would help, she said, I wouldn't be telling you if I didn't think so. Afterwards I looked at her records and leaving her Shouldn't have been an option. She was semiferal, a scared little dog. She died scared and alone in an oxygen tank. My rushed decision cost her her life. She was 12. I hope we find some relief to our pain and guilt. Tomorrow it's four weeks since my Sayuri's untimely death. So sorry

Please accept my apologies, I stand right there beside you in this painful hour. My vet, a new one, treated him for an ear infection instead of investigation of a seizure illness. She was guessing, and didn't want to lose $ by sending us to a specialist. That prolonged period progressed him to the point of no return. Thusly he died horrifically due to her greediness and laissez-faire attitude and disregard for a beautiful life. I told them what I thought and reminded them I never even got a sympathy card. Two days later they sent one!! With apologies inside. Sorry, I don't buy your excuses you horrible vet! You should be sued by the next victim you destroy 🤮

Sorry Skippy's dad,
Vets are doctors with lives in their hands, they shouldn't make mistakes! Send the pt to a Dr who is capable of saving a life, not one who is ok with experimenting on a sick creature and the end result is a fatality. No, I don't forgive that or forget it either. They were incompetent in my and others opinion and will never fly as being professional in their capacity as VETS! Really disgusting.

After what I've been through with a few vets, I totally agree with you. One I thought was compassionate sent me a letter saying they would not provide services for me any more and were cancelling my appt for Mary, 15 year old dog w liver cancer, and liver disease and 15 yr old cat.

On the visit a week earlier my other dog tried to nip the vet tech. They've seen this dog for years. I told them he was showing signs of dementia and they knew he was a little skittish. The vet was petting him for awhile, and then tried to take blood and Kabuki reacted. We even laughed about it a few minutes later. The tech didn't scream, didn't cry, didn't say I need to go to ER. There was no bite. They should know about dementia, they didn't take precautions. Vet was being vindictive bc I started seeing the other vet there. That's another story. In Sayuri's case, she should've said pneumonia is mild. Said Sayuri had a fever. Normal is to 102.5, it was 102.9 bc she had been in a kennel for three hours to get to hospital. She's semiferal, never allowed a leash on herself, so we always put her in kennel, so 102.9 would've still been normal range. Clinically, a fever on dogs is 103.2 and over.

Memories_of_Marmalade


I will NEVER, not EVER trust a Vet or an Animal Hospital again. I took my cat Marmalade to 5 different Vets (2 of them being supposed Animal Hospitals) over 12 months and all of them were either incompetent, unprofessional, rude, non-compassionate, arrogant, ignorant, greedy and either did not diagnosis correctly, or misdiagnosed my boy. 4 of them should have their licenses to practice Veterinary Medicine revoked. Money was not an issue. I spent thousands of dollars over 1 year and it mattered not.

The sad truth is each years thousands of pets die due to Vets. Most are nothing but all about the money. They feed off of pet parents fear of loss and grief. It is a racket.

If anyone finds a Vet or Animal Hospital that you can trust? Who treats your pet and you well, and does a good job treating your pet? Hold onto them as they are rare.

I completely concur with your opinion on these unscrupulous money worshiping vets! My cat Moochie was the sad victim of one of these low life people and he died from the incompetent woman I trusted. He suffered immensely in the end and I'm still suffering from losing my best friend 💔 He had small seizures and she said it was an ear infection instead of looking for the real problem. I even had blood work done for 225$ and it was ok. Should have referred to a specialist maybe he'd be alive tonight, beside me now..NO I don't trust most of these people.!!!
