I took my cat Celina to Alta Vista Animal Hospital because she wasn't feeling well, had lost some weight and needed some mats shaved under her. That is what a pet parent would do if they had a sick animal they would take it to the vet. Once there we we're taken to the exam room. A vet tech soon entered exam room but as soon as she saw me in a cheap drive wheelchair she frowned. I had someone with me that morning and seen the frown on her face when she saw the wheelchair and had to repeat herself as I was hearing impaired. I am in wheelchair because of spinal cord injury but that did not stop me from taking my sick cat in. The Vet tech began to examine my cat and noticed a bad tooth in her so I gave permission to have the tooth pulled out. The Vet tech then picked the cat up and took her in back but what would happen next was beyond horrible. From the exam room I could hear my cat crying because they we're getting so rough with her. When the vet tech brought her back and when I saw all the cuts and scratches on her I asked what is this? Why is she covered in cuts and scratches? The vet tech said oh she it was a result of us shaving her mats and on one cut I was told they glued it shut and I was like you what? You don't use super glue on a cat. As for the tooth if there was a bad tooth that needed to be pulled antibiotics should have been issued. I would have been OK with buy the antibiotics for her. But they did not do so. As a matter of fact they did not give her anything before pulling the tooth out. To my horror when I got my cat home I noticed additional cuts and scratches on her and as some time went on I looked into her mouth and noticed additional broken teeth in her left from the vet visit. Sadly I lost my cat on January 11th of 2019 way too soon after last vet visit. I am still traumatized from the lost of my cat and the horrible vet visit. I know a lady right now but out of respect for privacy that it could be anyone around this country but for this person every time they go to the vet with their cat they get huge discounts for their cat and for reasons I believe for being smart and knowing how to get these discounts for thier pet yet I can't even get a bottle of antibiotics for my sick cat who is now deceased. And for What reasons I am hearing impaired, have a few learning disabilities and a spinal cord injury and there for some felt I was powerless to defend myself or cat so they did whatever they wanted to to my beautiful kitty. 😢. What I felt to be unfair. I miss my cat every day and can't bring her back. 😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😢😓 She will be missed. I am speaking up because it is my free speech right to do so. It would be violating my first amendment rights under constitution to request I remove review so for that reason it stays posted.
