Does anyone have information on where all their records were forwarded to? I need to have my dog's information sent over to our new vet but can't find anything listed.

After seeing an ad the Vet had for kittens, we purchased two kittens from their office for our children's Christmas gift. Immediately upon bringing them home, they had horrible diarrhea. Since the office made us sign a contract, only guaranteeing their health for three days, we rushed them back to find that they had Coccidia (a bacterial infection), Dr. VanderPool gave us medication and said it should get better in a few days. Which worked out well, because included in our initial cost was a kitten "well-check and next vaccines". So we combined a follow up with the well-check. The kittens seemed a little better, so the Dr. said just continue the medication. The kittens had severe flee infestation, so the Dr gave them flee medication. After 21 days on the Coccidia medication, these kittens still had severe diarrhea. We had to quarantine them in our house, because of the mess they made. These were sold to us as "healthy" kittens! We decided to get a second opinion. After paying nearly $150. the other Vet stated they have never seen such poor condition of kittens. They stated that kittens that you get from the Human Society are in better condition then these, in which we paid for! The kittens were full of tape worms and had severe ear mites. Thankfully, the new vet felt bad for us and discounted the service.The next day I phoned Blue Cross to request a refund for these kittens that were sold to us as "healthy" and instead have been anything but! Our kids love the kittens, but with all that we had to do to get these kittens healthy we wanted a refund for what we paid. The office said "no". Only if we return the kittens... who of course are now healthy. They never performed the so-called "well-ness" check or they would've found the tape worms and ear mites. We thought purchasing from a Vet would surely be a safe place to acquire a kitten, boy were we wrong.They could never tell us where these kittens came from and we never got to see their cage. My guess, based on the health of the kittens, is that it was very unclean. Please do yourself a favor and don't chance purchasing a kitten from this office. Save yourself the pain in your heart.0 out of 0 people found this review helpful.

After seeing an ad the Vet had for kittens, we purchased two kittens from their office for our children's Christmas gift.

Pros: Front desk hospitality

Cons: cost, care and cleanliness

I received my kitten Max as an early Christmas present this last year. Recently I noticed he was lethargic, not eating as much, sleeping a lot, had a swollen belly and was just all over "not-himself". I took him into an animal clinic and wasn't very satisfied with the cleanliness of the exam room and the expensive service...EVERYTHING had a price. After receiving news he might have FIP I took him into Blue Cross Animal Clinic. The exam room was very clean and the prices were more than fair. The doctor and his assistants were very caring and they helped me through the whole ordeal. Sadly, Max did have FIP and had to be put down but they made the whole experience as endurable as possible. I will be taking my next kitten there for sure.

We have absolute trust in Dr. Jung. We drove from Carnation to have him look after our dogs and cats. Over the years you loose your beloved animals, and as we aged ourselves have moved to Gig Harbor. We now have only one cat, but will still be driving to Seattle to have her looked after by Dr. Jung. He is the only person I know who understands how much these guys mean to us. He treated all of our family pets with love and respect, not to mention his expertise. I always refer this clinic to our friends. Linda Groznik

Dr. Jung and his staff are the most wonderful people to work with... they treat my "pets" like my children (the way I treat them). I never have to worry about their care and they always get the best care here.

I have been taking my pets to Blue Cross for about 20 years. Dr. Jung and his staff are wonderful. They are compassionate - both to the animals and to the humans who bring them in. On several occasions Dr. J. has taken one of my dogs home if they needed extra special intensive care. He has been very supportive of my rescue cases, taking special care of the Dobermans I have brough in for shots, etc. He never talks *down* to me, but explains things clearly and encourages my questions. If he doesn't have an answer, he won't *fake* it but take the time to find one. Wonderful, wonderful care - I can't say enough!
