Complaint / review text:
I went to Banfield Pet Hospital with a new pet. I was immediately talked into signing up for their wellness pet plan. Right from the beginning I was Not happy with Banfield and the uncaring way that they treated you. I felt they cared more about profits and pushing unnecessary medications and procedures, than about the pet itself. My dog was given many shots that I felt were not necessary.
After she was given some of the shots (some where given three at a time) my dog developed allergies. It started having yeast infections over its entire body and suffer from ear infections. They put her on steroids and many other types of medications that would clear it up on a temporary basics, and charge me a lot of money for these medications.
I have since been to other vets. I was told by one, that some of the shots my dog had at Banfield they would Never give to dogs under 25 lbs. (My dog only weighs 10 lbs.) I recently went to a new vet clinic and got a vet who was a former employee of Banfield Hospital. She said that Banfield was over medicating and giving animals shots for diseases that do NOT exist in the state of Florida.
