Changing for the worse...

A once caring and compassionate place for pets and their owners has turned into a nickel and dime hustle that reflects "subsidized healthcare" for animals. Your relationship with your vet should be a joint vested interest in providing care for your animals. Today, Dr. Mary Jane and the staff of Shively Animal Clinic lost my respect; not only as veterinarians--for undermining my intelligence to care for my animal, but as an amiable establishment for their rude dissension. Denied an over the counter dressing for my dog, and scolded about the “seriousness” of applying it, I was pressured to bring my furry friend in (after hours) to be examined. After I refused, explaining it was nothing serious—a cut that needed looking after; most likely a scrape from a sticker bush on our property...I was denied a product that I could purchase myself online. “We don’t want to be responsible if the dressing isn’t put on correctly.” Uh, ok, let me get this straight... You won’t sell me a glorified ace bandage, but you will sell me a product that has an MSDS on file with the federal government; i.e. Frontline and HeartGaurd. After their neglect of customer service (2 personnel and one supervisor later) and over-inflating the “seriousness” of dressing my dog’s wound myself, my husband and I have made the decision to remove our pets from their care and build a new relationship with a more helpful practice that advocates an owners proactive role in the health of their pets.

Mommy will not take me anywhere else!!!!

We always see one of the Fuche's family when we go. We used to see Doc, but he retired recently. The doctors here always treat me and my siblings like children and they are really good doctors. They have been treating me for cancer for 3 years now and I am still doing pretty well. When my cousin, Mandy, became paralized, they worked very closely with mommy and managed to help Mandy get well enough to walk again in just a few months. All the people were soooo nice too. The only thing that I do not like is that we always have to wait a good while to get in, but the knowledge and compassion of the people that work there make it worth the wait. Mommy takes us all the way from Jeffersonville, Indiana.
