We just had a terrible experience with bringing our full grown dog in with a fractured nail.

The doctor was more comfortable talking to animals over humans - I could barely get any information from her and she seemed absolutely intimidated by me. They had me lift my 65lb dog onto the examination table myself - thank goodness I was physically able to. The doctor did not address specific questions and concerns of mine regarding antibiotics and medications. When they were doing the examinations I was solely responsible for restraining the dog - which bothers me because I am not experienced in handling animals in such an intense situation... because of all of this I was very afraid that the dog was going to flail straight off that examination table and fall 4ft+ to the tiled floor.

When we picked our pup back up we were informed that he tested positive 6 months ago for limes disease - which is interesting because we were never informed. This could have turned into something serious and when asked as to why we were not informed they totally dismissed the issue without reason.

On getting home we realized our pup was having A LOT of trouble with the dressing of the wound. They wrapped it WAY too tight with ace bandages and we had to re-wrap it ourselves. Also upon getting a second opinion the day after it turns out that they used straight gauze, without non-stick padding on the wound. When the Anamosa Vet Clinic (awesome folks) checked it out the clotting had dried directly into the gauze causing our pup some intense pain when having to remove the dressing.

As I previously mentioned, we went to Anamosa Vet Clinic the day after and I got to witness how true veterinary professionals work. It was a night and day difference... I *REALLY* wish we would have just gone there first - I feel guilty having left my pup with Blairs Ferry Pet Hospital - *VERY* guilty.
