I have been going to Dr. Haynes for more then quite a few years now. I will say he is often a man of few words, but when he does talk its important. He's helped me out of several pinches and has been great with my dog, who isn't exactly a great patient. His prices are reasonable, his place is small, and this last time i went my dog couldn't walk due to Vestibula, he even came out to the car to check her out. I drive from Mount Holly now just to keep going there.

Dr. Sam Haynes left my parents' dog, Abbey, suffering in respiratory distress because of what he admits was a *non-emergency* ""family commitment"" -- one that took place in the middle of his scheduled office hours!! To defend himself, he kept saying, ""I'm just one person and I can't be here all the time,"" but surely you can be there DURING YOUR OFFICE HOURS. \n\nAbbey needed oxygen to stabilize her because she was suffering and couldn't breathe. Again, to defend himself, Dr. Haynes insisted that he doesn't ""even have an oxygen tank and couldn't have done anything."" Well, then why the crap are you our vet?! Answer: You're not anymore!\n\nAbbey was rushed to the emergency care center where she was lovingly and immediately stabilized and put to sleep by caring professionals.\n\nI'm sorry, but you don't leave for a NON-EMERGENCY ""family obligation"" DURING YOUR OFFICE HOURS while an animal in front of you suffers.\n\n(note: I'm VDR928's daughter, but I called to obtain more information about this incident and wanted to relay it here.)

I wish ""no stars"" was an option! Our 14-yr old poodle was a patient of Dr. Sam Haynes. This Saturday she had a severe attack with her Congestive Heart Failure. We rushed her to the vet (having called the night before, as she was not doing real well, to find they were open from 8-12 on that Saturday). Her breathing was suddenly irregular, her chest had audible crackles from across the room (her lungs had filled with fluid from a poorly pumping heart... I am an RN). Her mouth was open and her tongue was turning blue, but we made it to Davis Lake Animal Hospital and I told the receptionist that I thought it was time to put her to sleep. (her suffering was obvious and audible) and I was in tears. She said, ""I am sorry he can't see you. He has been trying to get out the door and this is his last patient."". (BTW it was 10:30 AM...well within office hours!) He takes off his lab coat and walks out... yellow shirt and all... right past our struggling 14-yr-old family member!! We were in shock, but had no time to argue. The receptionist said to take her to Carolina Veterinarian specialists in Huntersville. On the way, we phoned my daughter who gave us accurate directions. They met us at the door, rushed Abbey into an oxygen tent and made her comfortable. They did a full exam and let us chose whether to pursue TX or euthanize her. We said we thought it was time... the Dr said she absolutely agreed and thanked us for ""not letting her suffer"". She was brought to us (no longer gasping for air and putting her little paws out toward my husband (her ""daddy""). We held her, talked to her on a soft blanket, then she was given a sedative and anesthesia through an IV adaptor. She actually laid down and just went to sleep. As far as she knew, I think she thought we were done and she was coming home with Mommy & Daddy. I hope so, anyway. They put Abbey into a small ""coffin box"" securely fastened and gave her to us with a tiny heart drawn onto it and a compassionate ""I am so sorry"" attitude and told us to drive home carefully. (no doubt because they knew how much she meant to us and how distraught we were). \n\nI had been to Dr. Sam Haynes many times. He had given my dog too high of a dose of medication, once, which I told him about. He gave my daughter's dog a medication that small dogs were not supposed to have. (That is why she knew the directions for the other vet. place.) She now goes there. (Which I would give 10 stars to if possible.) I am very aware that Dr. Haynes might have had a real, severe, emergency. But not a word to us... Not.. ""I am heading here or there"" or ""I'm so sorry"".... just avoiding us and leaving! (Right in front of us!) I would not take a dog (pun intended) to Dr. Sam Haynes.

We have been taking our BT and Dachshund to this vet for over 2 years now. He is kind and caring and no matter what he is always there to answer questions. He has helped us over the phone more than once when the dogs have eaten something they shouldn't or were acting strange. His prices are the best around and that said I wouldn't go any where else. No long waiting times and you can actually talk to him. Thanks Davis Lake!
