Complaint / review text:
On the 29/10 I took my Yorkie to Rynfield Veterinary Hospital to attend to a cough & ear infection. Dr Engelbrecht advised that he might have "Mites" in his ear and possible kennel cough or Tonsillitis.
I returned on the 6/11, more meds were given with no result
I returned on the 11/11 the diagnosis given as kennel cough, more meds no result
I returned on the 24/11 now with 2 dogs as the highly contagious kennel cough infected my female yorkie of 8years
Both animals were given heavy doses of anti-biotics with no result
Now very irritable as both my dogs cough continuously I again returned on the 28/11 for MORE meds and again with no result
On the 18/12 I returned again with both animals who were now hospitalized for 6 nights AGAIN WITH NO RESULT
Now at my wits end Dr Coleman advised me that's its now not kennel cough but Tonsillitis and that both animals tonsils should be removed and my troubles will be over.??
I agreed and guess what? NO RESULT
Both animals spent 11 further days in hospital with no result.
Dr Coleman now shrugs his shoulders and advised me to go see a specialist..
This after nearly 10 weeks of being shoved around and billed to the tune of R8,311.27
