On December 12 my foster family brought their dog in for a dental surgery. Dr. Novick recommended a full dental for the 7 year old dog. Dr. Novick told the family to come back in a half hour after the surgery was done. They went back and their was Lulu laying fully unconscious on the operating table with her tongue stuck out. He told them it would be alright to bring the dog home at the time. They took her little body home and lay her down waiting for her to revive. An hour later she was dead. Not knowing any better the Dr. had them contribute to Lulu's death. How could they have known any better. She basically died by strangling on her blood after he pulled every tooth in her mouth. No animal SHOULD EVER BE carried out unconscious. They should be fully revived with oxegen and walk out the door.\n\nINTUBATION vs. MASKING/CONING DOWN:\nEVERY brachycephalic dog that goes under anesthesia should have an endotracheal tube (ET) placed in his or her trachea! Always! That airway must be protected at all times. The tube should be left in until they are VERY awake and trying to chew it out. \n\nThis doctor is a butcher nothing less. His office is filthy and decades in disrepair. I urge you not to use this office at any cost. We fully intend to make complaints to the proper authorities. The dog has been sent for a necropsy and we fully intend to bring this practice to a close.\n\nLaurie Bleier\nDirector Brooklyn Animal Foster Network\n917 754 3537\n

Dr. Novack of the Call Ahead Veterinary is such a nice doctor, we can't say enough kind things. When our newly adopted cat was having some digestion problems, I was worried enough to have him looked at. Dr. Novack was wonderful and was able to take care of my little furball right away.
