    I'd be willing to write a letter as well. Bre has had enough run-ins in the time I've had her that needed veteranarian attention and luckily my vet is a saint.

    Yes, I would also be happy to write a letter. I think it his horrible all that you have gone through and the insensitivity of their office (other than the nice doctor). What if there was the possibility that the surgeon made a mistake on one of the procedures? You would never know, yet you would pay financially and emotionally for it. And even if everything was done correctly, the fact they pushed for this and weren't completely truthful is awful. And to pay so much and not have your baby.... angry, angry tears.

    is there someone else we can write to in regards to it being ethical? If there is any question that there medical suggestions were based on financial gain and not in the best interest of her health ethics could be questioned. Im not sure you would see any impact financially, however you may help another family from going through this. There has to be some sort of risk assessment when doing repeated surgeries.

    I only know the human side of medicine but their could be two pathways to write with an ethical complaint. There are peer reviews where other physicians review a case and determine if the doctor provided the best care. I would send a complaint to the Veterinarian Board (if there is one) where the board may review the case.


    I'm a good girl, I promise

    Brilliant idea. Maximize it! Just complaining to them isn't enough. They'll just think, it's sour grapes. Reviewing the situation on an ethics basis is absolutely worthwhile.

    Also, there's a little thing I do called "YELP". Here's a link to a review I made about a certain vet with regard to EBs: http://www.yelp.com/biz/hollywood-hi...PgXvw/src:self
    Conversely, here's one on our current vet: http://www.yelp.com/biz/animal-surge..._TO-Q/src:self

    Intelligently - not emotionally - sharing your experience helps others make appropriate decisions about their pet's care. Many folks have gone to Dr. Terry on my referral and I am always pleased by their comments. The good guys deserve all the patients they can handle.

    @Vicaroo1000 - absolutely great idea! I love Yelp and use it often for finding places. Very true that a well-written review can hold quite a bit of weight.

    I also want to say a big thank you to those of you who may not be members of EBN but are visitors that have chipped in to help. We appreciate all of your support as well!

    Thank you ALL so much! We are completely blown away by the response and will be forever thankful and gracious for having the support of so many people. We look forward to returning the support by helping others in need in the bulldog community in the future. Not only are bullies a special breed of dog, but bully owners are a real special group of people.
