September is national suicide awareness month, and while suicide is a growing problem in the US in general, veterinary medicine presents many unique challenges. Similar to doctors, veterinarians deal with depression, anxiety and burnout, but also to a greater extent with the stress of personal finances. High debt - up to - income levels have caused difficulties getting a home loan, taking a lot, going on holidays and starting a family. The fact that vets are twice as likely as doctors to commit suicide is alarming.
Last year, the average entry-level salary for vets was about $82,000, and students earn about $35,500 to $50,600 a year before they go on to further education and specialize. The average debt for the veterinary school alone is about $152,000, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA).
These interactions happen regularly and contribute to anxiety, depression and suicide in this profession. I want to help as many pets as possible, but I don't want animals to experience death, often in excruciating ways. In the vast majority of cases I see, the disease is not treated in all cases and the animal must be euthanized because its quality of life is suffering. We are deeply shocked when we cannot fix a pet's condition, for whatever reason.
Some vets are asking for benefits so that the doors are open and we can afford advanced equipment and staff.
We would like to give them the money we have received for killing an innocent cat, but unfortunately, like most people, we do not know how to fight a legal battle. We should sue and get our money back And we'd love you to be Banfield's PR, read our review, or just keep your condolences.
Many of these complaints are legitimate, but there is a difference between a legitimate complaint and a paid service, such as medical care. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) has resources to help vets and others struggling with their well-being, feelings or suicidal thoughts. We just hope that if you are looking for reviews after taking your pet to a Banfield location, read our review and get out of the way.
Dr Robyn Kasun also administered three vaccinations to a malnourished cat, and the cat died after causing serious damage to her kidneys and organs. Cats should not be given a vaccination either, as the body is heavily stressed and the disease is worsened with infections. Although most places accept pets with brushed and bathed teeth, they do not require a rabies vaccination.
Dr Currall prescribed IV fluid, which was administered over a 10-day period, along with medication to treat the respiratory infection. Her condition improved after she was treated for respiratory and ear infections, and the phosphate binder began to improve her kidney health.
While the fluid caused quite a lot of pain each time it was a pain for the cat not to warm up the fluid. As we learned later, it is incredibly painful to "warm up" fluids, which means that very cold fluids are injected directly into the skin and bones.
We were not able to monitor the care of our cat, communicate properly with our vet or observe his reckless and negligent actions. The first veterinarian we saw could not diagnose either a mouth infection or a respiratory infection in the cat. Without the excellent care and attention of the other two veterinarians in our local veterinary clinic, we would have put our cats on a path that has taken them far from recovery.
Ember was taken to West Linn where she saw Dr. Robyn Kasun and was sentenced to death. This does not cover the suffering and unpleasant situations we have endured during the veterinary neglect and subsequent treatment. And it doesn't cover how our family fought to keep Ember alive after she was sentenced to life in the emergency room of our local vet clinic after her death.
We made an appointment to have her teeth groomed, but Dr Currall said we should wait until Embers was healthy before trying to groom her. The same vet also told us that cats have to wait until their teeth are cleaned in their mouths. We were concerned about Ember's teeth, so we arranged and made another appointment with her veterinary practice in Portland, Oregon, to arrange and treat her. She was prescribed daily medication for kidney health and we waited until she was healthier before trying to take care of her.
We later learned that it was irresponsible and clear misconduct to give her all the vaccines, let alone her vaccinations, at the same time. She was not nearly or even close to this condition when she visited the vet for the shots and left it to the vet to decide whether she was healthy enough for vaccinations and vaccinations or not. I let her out to remind her that she wasn't, but we later learned that this wasn't her first visit to the vet's office in Portland, Oregon.
