I just recently touched based with Vinny Nugget's (JUSTICE FOR NUGGET) owner about what just recently happened to my dog (my fur-baby) Summer. On June 6th, 2014 my husband came home to our 12 year old Pitbull mix, Summer having problems breathing - so frantically i called all over at 6pm on Friday and almost every vet closed (we just moved to Massapequa - we weren't familiar with the area) and finally Babylon Animal Hospital answered and said they were there until 8 so i called my husband to bring our dog there immediately.
In regards to my Summer - we advised the vet that she had the beginning stages of Cushings but has been in good health since her diagnosis from our vet in Freeport. Dr. Beiderman is the vet that looked at Summer - she advised we put her on Mitatane and Predazone for treatment. They put her on Mitatane 2x daily at 500 mg each dose. Dr. Beiderman advised us if Summer starting vomiting or having diarrhea from the Mitatane (chemo drug). By Sunday night, June 8 Summer seemed very weak - she wasn't eating, drinking, or walking much. Her eyes were extremely glassy and she had a "lost" look in her eyes. I called the vet immediately and spoke to Dr. Lopez he advised me to take Summer off the Chemo drug and start giving her the steriods, Prednisone for 3 days. Summer didnt seem much better on them - i called again on Monday, June 9th spoke to Dr. Beiderman and she had a conflicting opinion then Dr. Lopez on the meds she start Summer back on the Chemo pill after 3 -5 days after the steroid pills once day and Dr, Lopez recommended we put her back on it Thursday. It seems neither one knew what to do. Wednesday night June 11th Summer seemed to perked up a little was eating, walking a little more. On Thursday morning June 12th around 6:10am i woke up to go get ready for work - checked on Summer as I normally did - she seemed alert - i got in the shower and once out Summer walked past me went to get some water - She went to sit outside the Bathroom door as she normally did when i got ready each morning - she get half way down and collapsed very hard - she was having same symptoms as she had the previous Friday and then she was breathing hard - couldn't catch her breath - stopped breathing for moment - came back and then died in my husbands arms - I called the New York Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center and spoke to a young lady - i described what happened she confirmed that Summer had passed and to bring her down to them. I called New York Veterinary later that day and asked for a vet to call me back i wanted their opinion on something. Dr. Toro was kind enough to call me at midnight and spoke to me - i asked her about the drugs Summer was on - she advised me due to Summer having Cushings she should have never been put on the steroids. This could have been the cause of her death - per the vet the steroids would have sped the process of her condition up and also there seemed to be blood in her stomach - the vet believed there could have been a tumor as well. The vet believed she was misdiagnosed.
I know no amount of money can bring our baby back - but justice will be when this place gets shut down - i am sorry to say Babylon Animal Hospital killed my baby. I spoke to Cindy the office Manager on Friday June 13th and advised her that Summer passed.
I was so upset told her i feel they didnt do anything for Summer and wanted money back for their services we paid for. She said that she had to speak with Dr. Ligouri ( the wonderful owner )
I heard back from Cindy from the Babylon Animal Hospital and she said they would pay for Summer's cremation at Regency (where she is now). As per Cindy she said she told Dr, Ligouri I had a hard time letting go Summer - really - how can someone say that - Summer was my child - i dont have children - she was my baby. So she said we had to sign a General Release and Covenants not to hold Babylon Hospital responsible for past, present, and future - which meant i couldnt "bad mouth them".
well picked up the release last and they LIED - they never stated they were paying for Summer's cremation as agreed upon - they stated they were giving me and my husband $345 - which i dont know where they got this number - the cremation is $280 - I called Regency and advised them that I am paying for Summers cremation and do not release anything to Babylon Hospital
All my husband and i do is cry every night - it was not our baby's time to go - i blame Babylon Animal Hospital - the more i read about this place i get sick to my stomach. I have already contacted the Humane Society and will be filing complaints with the appropriate parties. I am not going away I need justice for my baby and all the other dogs/cats they have killed.

I have never been treated so rudely by so many employees at one business, on many separate occasions. I brought my dog here following a dog fight that left her with a small hole on the skin of her abdomen. They performed a surgery, and it was not done correctly. My dog nearly died as a result. When I called the next morning to tell them something was clearly wrong, she needed to be seen, they told me they were booked, and offered an appointment for the next day. I cried she might not even be alive tomorrow. You did this surgery and now youre not going to see her, when im telling you something is wrong?? No, they wouldnt. I called my regular vet, who had me bring her right in. (This had happened around 7pm, so my vet was closed or i'd have gone there first.) My vet was horrified to find the condition they'd left her in. He told me anyone performing surgery on a dog's abdomen must know the skin has to be stitched to the muscles at the top of the inside of her abdomen, otherwise fluid would have a place build up, which is what happened to her. The tissues inside her stomach were so infected he needed to remove a large portion of them. If it were not for my regular vet, my dog would have died at the hands of Babylon Animal Hospital. Every time I have had communication with them, like for example, the 5 times I've since requested removal from their mailing list, my kindness is met with rudeness. Today I was hung up on! This is no way to run a business and I do NOT recommend them.

When my blue merle great dane isis had a bloat attack, i called my favorite vet, Dr Liguori and he told us to rush in right away. He assured me that i got in in time, and i was so scared about money, because i didn't have any. He worked with me, sadly there was no saving her, she made it through the surgery, but she just didn't handle it well after that. He was so kind, and understanding, and didn't charge me for most of what he did. I wouldn't go to anyone else as long as im here in NY

This vet is pretty good. The secretaries are very nice and they always have appointments available at last minute notice. They are also open Sundays. I suggest that you request a vet that has been there a while because otherwise you could get a young/new vet and they seem to go through them a lot (i always get a different one). They are good with prices and honest. If I ask for an expensive medicine they will tell me that it's not necessary and give me a cheaper one.

This is Mister Kitty's vet since 1998 when he was an adopted kitten. True, I seem to spend $100 every time he's sick, but he has chronic rhinitis that he lives with, no cure. Even so, he stays pretty healthy. About this amount covers the exam and the medicines. They have several veterinarians on staff. To me, that multiplies the diagnostic knowledge. It's like a second and third opinion. It is obvious the staff and doctors really care about the animals. I have seen local animal activists bring in injured strays there and the good doctors treat them gratis. That impresses me, it confirms they really care. I have learned through friends that some vets are greedy and they've had negative experiences. If you live around here, you've found yourself a first class vet.

Had our Toy Fox Terrier euthanized today, she was suffering from Cushings Syndrome. What at HORRIBLE ordeal! It took forever for the sedation to make her sleepy and never actually did, then they went in with something stronger along with the acutal euthanization medication. She screamed and cried and finally after convulsing, died. I can't remember the last time my wife and I cried as much.\n\nSLOPPY JOB! WE'LL N E V E R BE BACK !!!!!

I took My maltese jack to this hospital and it was a great experience from the beginning. The staff was friendly and more important very knowlegable. Dr. Liguori helped jack enormously. He really cares about animals.
