Been waiting in 2 days for a vet to find the time to ring me with blood test results that I know are in and on her record. If I find out she is suffering and needs treatment or pts and has had to wait all this time I shall be livid :cry:

That is really bad :shock: especially with all the business you give them.

:(:( Which bunny?

I feel so frustrated for you; as you know there was a slight lack of communication when Alfie hurt his leg but I'm hoping that's a one-off - to be constantly treated how your vet treats you is just not acceptable. You spend a huge amount of money with them and they probably know that you won't go elsewhere because of the convenience of them being so local. :evil:

Tbh, even if the blood tests show no abnormalities, they should still ring asap - preferably the day they get the results in just to put your mind at rest.

Have you written a letter of complaint? I would seriously start making a diary of all their inadequacies & take it further, although I know you have lots more important things you could be doing with your time.

Summer, our 9 year old. The metacam didn't help her and she looks in so much pain :( I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and am worried sick :cry:

I have rung twice and Steve has rung and they make us feel like we are being a pain for asking. Then Steve went in at midday and made it clear that he wasn;t happy and walked out. He must be :censored: off as it isn't like him to complain

No idea, we all thought it was bad arthritis but just over 2 weeks of metacam at a high dose hasn't made her any more comfortable. There doesn't seem to be any other symptoms so it is a mystery :?

That's disgraceful. :evil: How long does it take for a quick phone call to let you know the results?

Being too busy is no excuse when an animal's health is at stake, especially if she is in pain. :( Plus there's all the worry and stress it's causing you with not knowing what's wrong.

:(:(

So even more important then, really, that the vet lets you know if the blood tests have thrown any light on it. It's beyond belief, honestly. :( And you shouldn't be made to feel like you're being a pain for pestering them.

Oh Liz, that's awful. You are a customer and a darn good one at that, it doesn't take that long for someone to ring you!

Hmmmmm. :roll: Maybe top of their agenda at this meeting is their lack of communication and customer care!!

Just not on.Make it known youre peed off.
Unless the results are NOT urgent.........:? and Bun doesnt need urgent treatment, but if she does, I would seriously let rip!!:evil:

Poor Summer. :cry: You must be soo worried.
I try not to say anything against your vet cos I know how its near on impossible for you to get the bunnies elsewhere being unable to drive etc and them just being at the end of the road but it makes me sooo cross the way they treat you when you pay them so much money for the treatment of your buns :evil:
I really hope you hear from them soon and you get some useful news. Sending lots of vibes for Summer xxx

Sorry they are messing you about Liz. I wish it was easier to find good bunny vets. I am moving mine after fiasco I had at my vets last week.

They rang at last :roll:

Luckily for them the bloods came back fairly normal for an elderly bunny :)

They actually think she is depressed as she has deteriorated a lot since loosing Moses :( I will definatley try to bond her with Revel now I know she is Ok physically, I just didn't want to rush into it if she was poorly or in pain

Thats good news. Hope the bonding goes well for her. :)

I'm so pleased the blood test results were good. Poor Summer though, it sounds as though losing Moses has hit her hard. :cry:

Hopefully Revel will be just what she needs. :love: Is he the Alfie lookalike? (I can't remember :oops:) If so, I'm sure she'll find him irresistible (sp?). ;)

Yup :lol:
I really can't believe they are messing you around so much Liz...it's disgusting.
Really hope the bonding goes well, will be lovely for them to have new loves for their twilight years :love:
How are Daisy and Theo getting on?

Theo is doing great, but is very thin. Daisy is also doing well, but the bonding with Frank didn't go well this week, Franks fault not hers :( I will reply to your pm soon, I am not ignoring you honest :oops::lol::lol:

I have rung another vet today for some info. The vet sounds good, but the prices are a worry. On the plus side their consults are around 10 cheaper than my vet, but neuters are 100 compared with 55 at mine and vaccs are nearly 20 and only 14.50 now. A GA is 70 compared to 40 for my current vet :? When your vet bill is already around 1000 per month, that could cripple us :? But if the vet actually has an interest in what we do and is good.....:?

We might take one of the new buns that are arriving up to see her just to see what its like :)

ETA Revel is bottom left in siggy :love:

I thought that was him. :D He is very handsome, but I'm completely biased because of my own little man of course.

Those prices are quite a bit higher though. *gulp* :shock:

As a rescue Liz, do you have to "buy" all your vet treatment from one place. If the vacs are cheaper with one vet, could you not just do the vacs there?

Alternatively, say to the new vet, this is what I am paying for "x" and I don't want it to increase. My business is worth more than the 2 rabbit household, so I would expect to negotiate certain rates. If you don't ask you dont get.
