We had an 18yr old cat that took a turn for the worst over the weekend. Sunday we brought her to the emergency clinic because she was having trouble eating and walking since friday night. They gave us some antibiotics and pain meds. They told us the cat has periodontal disease and they were not equipped with a dental xray machine and referred us back to our normal vet. Sunday night and Monday morning we had to force pain meds and antibiotics down her throat. It was heart wrenching. She was getting weaker by the day and by Monday afternoon I had to carry her to her water bowl and force her to drink.. I knew in my heart that she is dying and the only thing humane to do would be to put her to sleep. We loved her and she needed to be at peace.. Tuesday morning I called South Temecula Veterinary Hospital and spoke with the office manager. I told him the story and asked him if they could put my cat to sleep. He said they could.. Then I asked about cremation services and he went down the options for me. I booked an evening appt that night so the whole family could be there. Upon arrival Dr Cramer took us into a room and asked if he could do an exam on her.. Of course I said yes because I am assuming its part of the euthanasia process.. He proceeds to examine her and states that she is blind..(although she never had any indication that she had trouble seeing before) and suggests we do a blood test$140 and there is an infected tooth, and he thinks he can pull it out with out sedation for $50.. Mind you I am trying to process this all in my head.. I brought my cat in for a peaceful death and now he wants to draw her blood, and yank her tooth out of her mouth with out pain meds.. I said that I am really uncomfortable with the situation. He says well you know the blood work is $140 and ya know that tooth is so old I am pretty sure it will just fall out if I pull on it so I can take her in the back and do it for $40. I ask what is the purpose of the blood work. Dr Cramer says, "well your cat is sick and we need to find out why" She could have a thyroid condition and there are pills to help that.. Still I tell him I am uncomfortable with the situation and am unsure of the blood work. He then proceeds to glare at me and tells me that this cat should have been in his office a year ago for blood work. He then looks at his computer monitor and goes down the list of all my animals that have been there, 2 dogs and 3 cats, and says for about 3 minutes how I have neglected to bring in my pets on certain days for their yearly exams.. I told him, you know times are tough right now and I can't bring in all my pets for a yearly exam but we do the best that we can do.. He looks right at me and says he feels like he needs to be the spokes person for this "abused and neglected" animal. Really the cat is 18....Seriously I am trying to put her to sleep peacefully and this monster wants to put my cat through hell.. Think about it why would any vet suggest the blood work, painful tooth extraction without meds and pills to an obviously dying cat (that now is supposedly blind). I tell him I really feel uncomfortable with everything that is happening and proceed to pick up my cat and leave. He then says to me "what do you want me to do?" I tell him I made an appointment to put my cat to sleep. He says if that s what you want I can do that.. I look at him and say, " you will not be touching my cat at all and further more I need to collect all the my pets charts from this office. He then follows me out to the front desk and tells the tech to print my records for me and the office visit is $40. When I refused to pay $40, he then proceeds to tell me that if my cat was a child he would be calling C.P.S. on me.. Really, how abused is this cat that lived to be just 6weeks shy of 18years old..Any one who knows me knows I am an animal lover.. All my animals were adopted and all were spayed or neutered. Dr Cramer is the one who is money hungry and delusional. He was like a crazy man. I took my cat home and sle[t with her all night. The next day we called another vet and brought her in. The vet said in her own words, that she could do all the diagnostic test she could but the bottom line if this were my cat I would put it down. It is heart wrenching to think that Dr Cramer would seriously draw blood from my cat, and worse off pull a tooth out of her mouth sedation free on her last days. Ask yourself the question, What would you do? I think Dr Cramer is desperate to pay his bills and would do anything to any animal to make money.. Dr Cramer should be ashamed of himself. On an ending note, as I read through my pets records that I took home, they had altered and falsified one of my cats records.. Very unethical! Bottom line is, if you have no issues there, then that is wonderful.. But remember when the time comes that you can no longer afford some of thier "optional" services, you and your pets will be treated differently. There is no compassion and his "reasonable fees" are long gone.
