Saturday Duncan (my Shih Tzu rescue) became ill, I believe from the Vectra 3D. I checked the internet and found hundreds of horror stories about this product. Duncan refused to eat or drink all day Saturday and Sunday. He vomited and had diarrhea both of those days, was very lethargic and Saturday his body was on FIRE from fever. I prayed over my little boy all night Saturday and Sunday morning his fever finally broke. Monday morning I called the vets office (Maricopa Wells Veternary Hospital) which is his normal vet and where I purchased the Vectrta and asked for an appt. When I read more about the Vectra many people suggested bathing the dog with Dawn as the product is oil based and put onto the back of the dog, so I did bath him with Dawn dish soap. At my appt at 2:30 with Dr. Villalba I explained the entire situation with the Vectra, she said she never heard of these issues, I find that hard to beleive, so many pets have become deathly ill from this medication they are trying to get it off the market. Duncan was dehydrated, they gave him fluids, anti nausea, anti diarrhea, anti vomiting meds in a sac under his skin on his back, but never a blood test. They suggested a course of chicken and rice 2 tablespoons at a time, wait an hour or two to see if it stays down, if it does, give him a little more, you can wait a few hours and try a few more tablespoonfuls again. It did work, he had about 6 tablespoonfuls Monday night, and about 1/2 cup of water.

At 7:50 am the office called me and asked how Duncan did and I told them how he did the night before. I have MS so we really do not wake up until 10 or 11 am. When we finally really woke up, he again was lethargic, refused food and water. I called Dr. Villalba's office about 11 am and asked for her to call me, she was is surgery. I waited by the phone with my sick dog by my side until 2 pm and called again, now she is with patients. I waited until 5 pm and called again, she has an emergency, but you can bring him in if you want. Really???? You have time to see him if I give you another $90 but not time to call me back on the phone? I see how this is going. She knows what condition he is in but that is not enough of an emergency to call? I sat and waited by the phone for over 9 hours. Shows how much she cares, huh?

I am a devout Christian and am (along with my friends) trying to find a reason for her behavior, but I just can't. I cannot accept or justify letting a dog suffer this way when she know his state of health. Why I keep wondering, why? How long will she let him go without food or water before she thinks it is important enough to do something about. I am guessing I have to find another vet. This one I will find on Angie's List. I cannot bear to see my baby suffer like this, and I am SURE if it were her pet or parent she would NOT tolerate this type of care from their doctor.

Recently I had to put my pug down, she had been seen at Maricopa wells Vet Hospital. Dr V, Donna, and the staff did everything they could to keep her going, even if they had to recheck her they did a great job. Best staff you will ever find. Thanks to all of you Pearl is in heaven.

I agree with James B. Exactly the same thing happened to me. No way for a refill of medication without going through a high expense to get it. More blood tests, recheck price, and along with the price of the medicine. Just couldn't afford over $80.00 a month for refills. An owner is smart enough to tell if their dog is improving or not.

Started good. Dog had valley fever. Office visit, bloodwork and on and on was a little high priced. Dog was feeling great though. When I asked for a refill, they wanted to see her again. Which meant ANOTHER office visit, blood work and on... I couldnt afford it and asked if I can just get her meds. They refused. They would rather see my dogs die than lose another dollar. Disgusted. THERE IS NO LAW ABOUT SEEING THE DOGS AFTER MEDS... IT IS A CROCK.. searched everywhere and called 4 other vets... Sorry, Gougers.

This hospital is one of few in Maricopa, yet it is opened 7 days a week. If you need help on the weekends, you can make appointments and not have to pay emergency fees. How great is that?
