Eeks! Mom to my two favorite kitties, Milo and Minou, just came to me with a recent problem. BellaSugar's felines went in for an annual checkup with a new vet . . . and she left hundreds of dollars later (with more recommended tests possibly to come) wondering if her kitties weren't so healthy after all.
She'd suspected Milo had hairballs because he was vomiting up a long, squiggly grayish thing. The vet insisted on several tests (totaling $500) only to tell her . . . "yup, it's hairballs – brush him more and give him hairball formula food." It doesn't stop there – learn what was recommended for Minou in Bella's own words when you read more.
At this point, she says Minou’s heart rate is too high and that his heart looks enlarged “from a certain angle.” She wants me to do a pricey kitty EKG and a kitty ultrasound. After the way she handled Milo — rushing the poor thing through tests that he clearly did not need — I don’t want to spend a lot of time and money putting sweet Minou through tests that might not even be necessary. I want the best for my pets’ health, but c’mon — would you trust this vet?
I know there were some red flags going up for me – good vets should make you, and your pets, feel comfortable – so I'm thinking a second opinion is a good bet. What do you think?
