.

I took my dog, Lou, to the Bremen Animal Hospital. Lou has never bitten anyone. When the vet assistant came to my car to get him, he was calm and went with her easily. Same as he has with the previous 2 vet appointments we had in California before moving back to Georgia. My dog Lou also has a vibration collar that we have used for training. It is amazingly effective. If Lou needs guidance, you push the vibration button, and he lays down immediately. I gave the assistant the remote for the collar and explained just press the vibration button, and he will lay down. She was positive about the collar and said they would use it if needed. We had only sent Lou in to get checked for heartworms and refill his flea meds and heartworm pills. She also told me Lou would be back in 15 minutes. He ended up being gone for over 45 minutes.
After 30 minutes of waiting outside in the car, I still had not heard anything. I attempted to call the vet and was greeted by a short answering machine message. I continue to sit in my car, just waiting. After another 20 minutes or so, two assistants (the one who originally collected Lou and another one) come walking out with a dog on a stretcher. It took me a minute to realize that it was my dog. He was sent in to be check for heartworm pills. They bring him over, and he is obviously drugged, and blood is pouring out of his head. He has a muzzle strapped to his face. I am in shock to see him like this. I wait while they remove the muzzle and drag him into my car. Then they start trying to tell me what the vet recommends like nothing happened and when the next follow-up will be. I told them that I will never bring my dog back. I asked, what did you do to Lou. The original assistant does not say anything. She just stares down. The other lady said he was aggressively barking at a tech, so they wanted to put a muzzle on him. I said, what about the remote? He would have laid down. She said she does not believe in them. I said I gave you guys the remote with the understanding that it would be used if there was an issue. I said I was right outside; why didn't anyone come and get me or call me. I said, I did not authorize the use of a muzzle on my dog and did not authorize you to drug him. I said, you were supposed to bring him back after a 15-minute routine exam; instead, you bring him like this. I asked why he is bleeding. She said while they were trying to get the muzzle on, he was trying to pull away and slammed his head on the floor. She exclaimed that he will be fine and the sedation will wear off in a couple of hours.
When I got home, he was still bleeding from his eye. We realize that he is also bleeding from his lip. Turns out when they shoved that muzzle on his face, they caught his lip with it. He has saggy lips, and they folded them into each other, which explains why he was so difficult with the muzzle that we did not authorize. They were hurting him, and he was in excruciating pain. His lip was split and has never healed back fully.
I called the vet and told him what they had done to my dog. I told him about the tear on the lip and that his eye had turned red from strangulation. He sounded surprised about it then; No compassion about the issue at all. Lou continued to bleed off and on for a week and a half. I asked him why they did not call me or ask me to come in. He did not answer. I told him about my carpet that I had just cleaned and would need to clean again. He said I should not have let him on the carpet. Again, no compassion or concern for the issues his "practice" had caused. I told him they need to issue a refund so that I can fix my carpet. He thought the idea was funny. I said if you guys are scared of big dogs, you need to post that so people can take them elsewhere. He said he does not see a reason for our conversation to continue and hung up.

OMG, WORST>VET>EVER!!!!!! Do not go to this rude, inconsiderate vet. I have never experienced since a rude, inconsiderate, arrogant vet in my life. Dr Hollingsworth is clearly out for the money and could care less about running a successful, compassionate operation. I would NEVER recommend going to this place. Ever.

My sister has used this practice for over 15 years with previous dogs. Her dog was acting lethargic and trembling. He quit eating and could not stand. This happened pretty quickly, but his hip had been bothering him for some time. They always said it was arthritis. When she took him in 2 weeks ago, they took blood and said it was an infection of some sort. They gave him an antibiotic. He seemed to perk up a little after a week or so, began eating again then declined again. He could hardly stand. She took him back and they said he needed another course of a stronger antibiotic. Upon picking up his new prescription, she found it was the same thing he was given the prior week. I had been urging her to go to my vet. She took him yesterday to my vet. Poor baby had cancer and passed away in his sleep last night! This place needs to close down and the vets run out of town on a rail! He could have been spared 2 weeks of horrible suffering!

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!! Stay far away! Not only is this so called "Doctor" completely sarcastic he's also a complete slob!: I personally seen him spit in the sink he uses to wash before surgery. The day I had to go here he was wearing a nasty white shirt and was extremely rude! After talking to other locals, one of which worked for him once I was told of how they were treated and how he treats animals out of the sight of others. After seeing him and going to this place I believe it! If you care about your animals DONT GO HERE!!!!

I have a Jack Russell that's now 14 y/o. After he was born he had a skin disease that made it unable to play w him, his paws were so swolen he could hardly walk & he was in pain & discomfort constantly. I begged Stacey t put him down bcause of the pain for him & heartbrk for me. He refused to, about every day I made a trip to his office where they washd & scrubbed his sores, medicated him, sent him back home w more meds to apply. He did recover & has been 1 of my best friends since.

My issue is with Dr. Stacy Hollingsworth at Bremen Animal Hospital. I took my puppies for their 3rd round of puppy shots on a Saturday morning. The next day, one of them was extremely lethargic, depressed and had lost his appetite. I called Dr. Hollingsworth's office very first thing Monday morning and was advised by a nurse that the shots had given him a low grade fever and he'd be fine by next day. The next day we woke up and our sweet puppy was dead. I went to Dr. Hollingsworth's office that day with a reasonable attitude and a reasonable demand: a little compassion and an explanation. Unfortunately, he wasn't willing to give me either. He was completely uncompassionate, insensitive, and totally unwilling to help. He basically called me a liar, stating that unless I had a recorded phone conversation then his nurse never told me our puppy would be ok. I told him that both the dogs stay in a small, clean fenced in yard. There was nothing for him to get into to make him sick and he hadn't come in contact with any other dogs, and our other puppy was just fine. He stated that he "had no idea what could've happened" (some doctor, huh). I asked for a $30 refund for the shot that had obviously killed him, and he called the police. I'm 5 feet tall and 100lbs, I never even raised my voice to that man, and he called the police. I guess guilt will make you do desperate things. It is my opinion that Stacy Hollingsworth a heartless and mean doctor. I've been to him several times over the past couple of years and he's always seemed a bit rude and arrogant, but I never thought anything like this would happen. If you care about your animals, do not see this doctor. If you do go to the Bremen Animal Hospital, make sure you see Dr. Awalt instead. He is a great doctor and sweet man.
