Memory of Sydney, for anyone who's dogs are part of the family



Syd, bled to death at a Vets, because I could not come up with the cash in time to save her, she cut herself only on her leg, but it was bad,

That's all I can say right now,

Im so sorry to hear that


I am a dog lover myself and would do absolutely anything to save my girl, Chloe. They are such wonderful creatures and they have always been part of my family.

She could have been saved, she didn't have to die.

It's driving me crazy.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I find it offensive that a veternarian would allow this animal to die because you did not have the money for the medical care. I thought people became vets because they loved animals not because they loved money.

That's horrible! So the vet just let your dog bleed to death because you didn't have the money?
They should have at least fixed your dog then allowed you to pay in installments or something.

That person should not be a vet.

My family loves our pets like members of the family too, I'm truly sorry for your loss.

take care.

That is what my son said as he was begging them to do something.

Yes, the owner of the clinic was called and he told them not without the cash, by the time family got to the clinic with money it was to late, and he wont return my phone calls, so I guess I will be walking into his other clinic soon.

I don't want this to happen to another animal.

What state are you in and was this Vet really licensed and certified?

AVMA policy: Principles of Veterinary Medical Ethics of the AVMA




In emergencies, veterinarians have an ethical responsibility to provide essential services for animals when necessary to save life or relieve suffering, subsequent to client agreement. Such emergency care may be limited to euthanasia to relieve suffering, or to stabilization of the patient for transport to another source of animal care.



See also this, for example:




"By Florida state statute, as a vet you must render care to an animal that is in critical condition or in a life or death situation," Roca said. She said the dogs were left untreated for hours.

Link.



And another example:


Judge rules against veterinarian over dog's death


I know it wont bring her back, but maybe you should keep this vet from doing this to someone else.

Just a thought.

Dogs, Cats and any other loved pets ARE part of the family.
I feel you may have legal recourse here. Although that wouldn't help with the loss.

I'd also consider the media and government complaint agencies.

At a minimum, this vet should get some bad PR.


I'd also really consider whether this guy is really properly licensed...

Unlicensed veterinarians are VERY commonplace. If he's one of them, you got him.

I'll be darn Loam, thanks, I look for some info on the subject but didn't find anything like you posted,

Slayer, I agree, and my goal is to assure this doesn't happen again, I don't want Sydney to have died in vain,

Yes he is a big shot clinic owner in this town, if only I could have made it to the county doctor who is her vet

Now I wish I would have tried, I know he would have saved her, if she made it there.

Big shot or not, you'd be surprised how many of them color out of the lines.


If you need help with specific research, just let me know.
