The facility and staff have been wonderful. My little guy is undergoing multiple tests and is spending the night there. I just got a phone call from them and the preliminary pathology report of the liver aspirate is benign. I am causiously optimistic at this point.
Our thoughts are with you. Please keep us updated. Good luck!

I have been using Village Vet for years and take all 3 of my babies there. It sounds to me like they gave you good advice. The lab work must of showed something more then dehydration for them to refer you to Tampa.

Default Vet Experience.

Just an fyi, I have been going to The Village Vet since moving here 8 years ago and they have always been great! I take all my pets there and they get great compassionate care. I spoke with my Vet there and to clarify The Village Vet did give your pet fluids and bloodwork and recommended a specialist to you, sounds like they did everything right to me. What you may have preceived as a dirty office is really clean they are always cleaning when I have been there. However it is the oldest Vet office in the Villages and yes shows some wear and tear. I hear there are plans to do some remodeling, older and worn does not equate to dirty. That all said I sure hope your furbaby will be well. They truly are like family to us! God bless.
Is there another report?

Have been following your information on your schnauzer. We could have told the same story. In Fla. a few weeks, our almost 13 year old Molly became very ill with nausea, vomiting, projectile. Went to local vet, then a certified hospital in Orangeburg that we loved, then to Maitland to the specialists.......... Not a good ending............
I hope your Bailey is better and that you have very happy information to share.........Take care. L (We are renting out our home and we are back in SC. If you want any information about the hospital in Orangeburg will be happy to share.)

I am almost a Villager and have a pet of my own. I read, with interest, the goings on regarding the schnauzer with dehydration (poor thing). One thing that bothered/s me is that anyone can get what I would consider PERSONAL information on another client in the same vet office. My current vet would no more disclose my dogs condition than my physician would MY condition. To see that this confidentiallity is so readily breeched is disturbing at best; unethical at worst. HIPAA does not pertain to animals but there should be some kind of boundary in place for protection of the animal and the owner. This actually supercedes cleanliness and compassion. TRUST is crucial. How can that breech be trusted?

Yes, they operate out of Buffalo Ridge Animal hospital (behind Golden Corral on 466).
