Veterinary Associates of Reedsville Reviews (2)
I have been using this vet for approx. 3 years. My dog suffered from allergies from an unknown cause and was placed on steroids for months on end (which is not recommended for a puppy). After convincing the vet that I would like to know what he is allergic too the vet agreed but wanted to check his thyroid first (a common problem in golden retrievers). He was diagnosed as a hypothyroid dog. This is after $1,000 in vet bills and steroid medications where the vet called it allergies.
Several months later we went back for a normal check up just to discover our regular vet was fired and no patients/dog parents notified. This new vet was very young and held her veterinary school books in her hands while asking questions about my dog. She did not once touch him but treated him from the book. She then stated that his levels are all normal but he needs to be tested every 3 months instead of once a year (what his old vet was doing). This would be fine but at $150 a piece for testing not counting the now rising cost of a "consult" to get the labs drawn this is a scam to get more money.
When I requested my dogs records to get his care transferred to a different vet I was told he had a past due balance for a "consult" to fill his medication. I paid this past due amount but they still would not give me records until this cleared their bank. I will never recommend this business to anyone as they are just out for your money not your pets well being as they should be.
On the third time coming in one month Dr. H[redacted] diagnosed my filly with club foot due to rapid growth on both feet. Xrays were taken and she had rotation. Dr. H[redacted] said "BEST thing for her was to make her trot to stretch her tendons" I made her trot for five months every morning even though I knew it hurt her by how she responded but wanted help her with doctor's orders. I kept in contact with Dr. H[redacted] informing that she had horizontal bruising around both rear hooves: he said it was due to stone bruising. He also said my alfalfa mix hay was fine to feed. When she no longer could walk and just layed there another set of xrays were taken she went from a stage 1 to a stage 4. Dr. H[redacted] then said I would probably have to put her down. I brought her to UW Madison they said trotting was the WORST thing for her and she needed rest and hand walking and no alfalfa. I was informed that what she had to start with could have been gone with stall rest.
