I felt betrayed. After initially feeling confident, subsequent vet responses and treatment experiences left me bewildered and gravely disappointed. There was no correspondence between my explanations of why I had chosen to come there, the nature of my cat's disease, and the treatments consequences of the trust I had been encouraged to give.
1. I did not leave the experience with this vet believing she understood the gravity of my pet's situation: feline, kidney disease. She stated after a 3-day boarding/hospitalization that he "would now go on to a long, healthy life". This countered everything I had read or been told re: his disease
2. I came to her saying I was interested in alternative (homeopathic) approaches to treatment and she told me only after 3 days of treatment and hospitalization using standard approaches there was a vet on staff with homeopathic credentials -- and HE had not been consulted.
