Things that you will need to be careful about this hospital:
This hospital has problems with integrity. The “Japanese team” mentioned is actually a team who visits the hospital once a month. Most of the vets there are in their 20s, young and inexperienced. Looked like a clinic for youngster doing their interns.
Vets in there move among animals that carry serious contagious diseases and normal diseases, which is very weird because that increases the spreading possibility of diseases, even one careless mistake is fatal for your pets. Their common sense is near zero.
Vets in there will try to convince you that your pet needs to stay in even if it is not necessary, my poodle puppy Mino could still walk and play on the first day of visit (he had Parvo), just didn’t eat much and a few bloody stools, they said that he should stayed in immediate and so on, then they injected “the nutrient fluids” 24/7 too much that his legs all got swollen, which immobilized him. I didn’t know why they didn’t try stop the diarrhea and internal bleeding first. Mino lost too much nutrients and the bleeding causes his eye sunken in.
There are far more fatal bacteria and viruses in the hospital than at home. Vets always know that but they will be more than happy to put the animals on the altar of suffering because of money. (They charge over 1 million/day)
They charged a ridiculously high price for staying in but actually no body stayed there at night. If you require a person to take care of your pet at night, 1 million Dong/night. My sister paid because she was so desperate for the recovery of Mino. We’ve seen the guy who stayed there two consecutive nights and also work during the day didn’t show any sign of tiredness, so we concluded that he just stayed there and slept instead of caring for Mino
When infected with Parvo, the digestive system of our poodle was very weak, it was common sense to treat him soft food with lots of nutrients. But the vet there gave normal dog food to Mino, skipping even the simplest process of softening the food with water. The next day he vomited, the food was still there because his stomach couldn’t digest them. That hurt his stomach to the point of no return, he got seizure later due to lack of nutrients.
Once encountered seizure, the chance that a pet would come back is very slim.
During Mino’s final hours, I experienced an intense sense of guilt of all the things I had neglected in caring for him fighting against this disease. We shouldn’t have listened to the vets there let him stayed in alone. At night, when that abdominal pain stroke him, and he must had felt lonely and anxious in there. My observation was that all the animals there looked anxious and depressed.
When he stopped breathing, one of the vets put him on some kind of emergency treatment to regain his heart beat. I could never forget what looked like a cruel animal torture.
Seeing the way she pressed his abdomen, I knew even if his heart beat did return, he would still die of intestinal damage. With all of her strength, she pressed the abdomen of a 2 month-old poodle. Was that murder/saving? Later I read somewhere on the internet said that the abdominal internal organs would still move even after the nervous system died. Therefore, I don’t believe that a vet didn’t know that, or she was just pressing him pretended that she was trying to save him despite that would cause him more suffering?
Everything was too late when i realized this. All the guilt and suffering will not get Mino back, and yet I don’t want any other pet or pet owner to experience what I have felt. It was very heart wrenching to witness, and a piece of me died with him too.
If you suspect your pet gets parvo/care, my suggestion is to look up the internet first and learn as much as possible about these diseases. Never let your pet stay in if he/she can still walk. Never let your pet’s life depends on someone’s work ethics and errors. Don’t make the same mistakes i did.
Knowledge is abundant on the internet now, everyone can become an expert with that. What makes vets different from laypeople is experiences and a genuine heart to help the animals and that must go before money.
Perhaps their service was good in past, but now the quality has plummeted. Perhaps they had too much patients to take care off. However, all of this is not the excuse for their lack of work ethics. They could’ve been honest to suggest us taking Mino to other places if the hospital was too crowded. Like any genuine humane organization would do. Before they reflect and change the way they treat animals there, please think twice before taking your pet to this hospital and any animal hospital in general.
