My cat had been having urinary problems and had been being treated by our vet. On a Friday night at 7 pm he showed clear evidence of a complete urinary blockage, so I rushed him to VETS. I won't go into all the details, I would just like to say they were sensitive, sympathetic, realistic, were generally excellent communicators and very professional and courteous. He was catheterized and medicated and watched all weekend, and I met four of the five vets that work there. Even the assistants were fantastic. It was very expensive but I feel they work nights, weekends and holidays so their rates are understandably higher. I am thankful they were there when I needed them, and my cat is now comfortable and happy.

I brought my dog in because he had had surgery (elsewhere) and couldn't urinate. He had had the same problem with anesthesia before and I was sure that that was the problem. They told me it was a coincidence, and he probably had a urinary blockage. Xrays showed no blockage, they were able to pass a catheter and still no blockage. Used scare tactics to convince me he needed immediate surgery. Which I agreed to. I expressed my concern that he have anesthesia again in such a short time. They said it was no problem. Surgery showed no blockage. They also told me how much they disliked my dog (he was snappy and grouchy, but wouldn't you be under the circumstances?) Since they couldn't find anything, they released him to me, and told me to take him to my vet on Monday. My dog had seizures and in spite of a frantic trip to my regular vet, he died. He was only 9 (in a dog with a life expectancy 16 years) and in good health and I loved him dearly. I have located another emergency vet outside of Richmond. I blame both the emergency vet, and my now ex-vet who released him after surgery when he clearly had a problem. All I can say is, ask questions and don't let vets blow you off.
