We have been going to St George animal hospital since 2002 and we thought they were exceptional, very caring and committed towards the health of our loved friends. In 2005 we moved to Europe with our two cats and the dog and come back to Australia in 2009. later that year our older cat (8 years old) starting to be unwell, always regurgitating his food and losing weight so we decided to go and get an opinion on what was wrong with him so blood test and urine test were done and also x rays for a total of 700 dollars and the results were inconclusive. we asked if there was a chance that he had stomach cancer, but they said if that was the case it would be on the test results so they gave us large spectrum antibiotics and ant inflammatory saying that probably he had a kidney problem. after one month our beloved cat had an internal bleeding and the conclusion of the same vet was that he had advanced stomach cancer and the was nothing we could have done, so we said good bye to our beautiful cat.
Last week my dog cut himself on the screen door of our backyard, the wound was quiet deep and we took him in, it was 6:30pm, they said the vet was on the phone, at 7:15pm the vet came out and said because it was after 7pm it would be an after hour fee of 190 dollars + the consultation + whatever needed to be done!! we're not very rich at the moment so we just asked if they thought he needed stitches, and if yes, was OK to wait till the day after. Their answer was if you don't pay the after hour fee and the consultation they weren't going to tell us anything!!
They were very good once, but good things sometimes they turn bad.
