We took our German Shepherd Murphy to Tri state Animal Hospital, the staff was terrific and Dr Hennessy saved our dog !! His stomach had contorted and had to have Life saving surgery immediately!! Murphy is doing great !! I cant Thank the Doctor and his team enough!!! Thank you!!! This all took place Labor Day of 2016
Very upset with this er. It was the weekend and I called ahead to let them know I had a emergency and they told me they could see her right away. I drove there and it took them almost 4 hours to see my puppy. Very uncaring people that work there. Btw, my puppy had parvo and I could have been pushing fluids as I had been doing before I got there. Finally, 4 hours later they seen my puppy and done a $80 fecal to verify she had parvo. They proceeded to tell me it would cost at least $700-$800 to keep her there on an Iv. I paid $350 for the office visit, parvo fecal test, and 3 (pill form) meds. Btw, the pill form meds are pointless with a parvo puppy because the virus makes them vomit and have diarrhea which causes them to dehydrate. They refused to send me home with sub-q fluids knowing the main reason puppies die of parvo is dehydration. It's very easy to administer sub-q fluids under there skin and they have a 99% better chance of surviving. Most vets will sale you sub-q fluids for home use. They took $350 of my money and DID NOT give my puppy any care. They sent me home with no special instructions on how to care for my puppy. They sent my puppy home with a death sentence. Sad to say my 6 month old baby girl put up a good fight for 3 days as I pushed pedialyte orally, many enemas, and even one office visit back to this ER for sub-q fluids. She passed away in my arms, as I did not leave her side for 3 days. All this vet offers is Animal Cruelty! It wasn't like I hadn't already given them $350+50. When I asked if they would sale me sub-q fluids to take home there reply was "we don't do that here". This vet is unprofessional and money grubbin.
