Acacia Animal Hospital Reviews (7)

Our beloved pet was extremely ill and Acacia was the only hospital open near our house the evening he needed medical attentionHe was treated by a vet who was not personable and did not explain muchShe put him on an NSAID, which is known to cause kidney damage, in the setting of dehydration, knowing he wasn't drinking and hardly peeingShe gave him subcutaneous IV treatment then sent us home with multiple prescriptions and a monumental billHe only worsened, and we took him back the next night and saw a different vetShe insisted we order $labs but could not explain why or how they would affect his treatment, until I asked her several timesShe finally said he could die if we didn'tWell, the labs showed nothing we didn't already know and we left that night with another massive bill & several different diagnoses possibilities than what the 1st vet had given, for which she suggested various expensive testsShe also emphasized to NOT give the NSAID because it could hurt his kidneys and put him on a week of home IV fluid therapyShe did not feel all the supplements and prescriptions given by the 1st vet were necessary I am in healthcare and feel that if the 1st vet had used common sense, she would have sent us home with IV fluids the 1st time and no NSAID and we might have avoided the 2nd visit, stress of watching our baby almost die, and expensive costs we incurredWe since have found a wonderful vet who takes the time to talk with us about reasonable diagnosis possibilities, not a slew of rare long-shotsHis prices are more affordable as wellI can only share our experience and hope that no one else's beloved pet is as mis-treated as ours wasI will never take our pet back to Acacia and have no confidence in their practice's ability whatsoeverAdditionally, when I requested a refund (worth < $50) for the supplies the 1st vet made us buy, I was ignored/disregarded by the company on different occasionsTalk about a lack of customer service! They had taken > $from us in 24hrs and wouldn't even consider a small refund

We also had a bad experience at AcaciaOther reviewers who say money is their primary motivation are correctThey push expensive and unnecessary tests on people who have sick companion animals and who they know they can sucker into paying for the tests that won't do anything but enrich the owner of Acacia, *** ***
Instead, when people have pets who are suffering from fatal diseases, they should just tell them that they are fatal and let the pet owners decide what to do instead of pushing what they know are tests that won't do any good for the pets, but only will do good for the bottom line of AcaciaI feel sorry for the "employee" vets who have to follow Dr***'s philosophy on thisThey probably work on salary plus commission on selling testsNo wonder they come and go
You take your pet's life in your hands when you go to this placeAnd you better have lots of money for unnecessary tests to boot There are many other vets in town that are better than this one
