Choose Your Vet Carefully
















Please read carefully, Yen's warning below. To learn more or adopt a pet write to Yen at acs_yen@hotmail.com:

"Dear All,

My friends and I have recently adopted 3 JRT pups. There were 7 in the litter. Prior to putting them up for adoption, the owners brought the pups to Animal Medical Centre vet to be vaccinated. As the owners were not very experience, they were con by the vet.



Look what we found. The pictures are attached. The pups were given expired vaccination. Considering it is their first jab, this is so dangerous.



For all we know, it could have endangered the lives of the pups. This is really an irresponsible vet. I would like to make this known so that everyone who reads this forum will be more careful about how they choose their vets for the sake of their beloved pets.















I do not want anyone else to fall prey to this money minded doctor who is clearly just out for money and could not careless for their patients (Our furkids). They have an unfair advantage as our furkids cant talk and tell us what is happening.














Lucky for the pups, we have another trust worthy vet we consulted. As advised by our trustworthy vet, the expired vaccination will not harm the pups but it is now deemed worthless and does nothing for the pups. We will have to go for another additional vaccination to replace the expired one.
















Pic 1 - The medical cards of our pups.
Pic 2 - Look at the dates of suggested vaccinations. It is rediculous. Vaccinations are suppose to be given within 30 days interval. All vets knows that. However, this vet is suggesting 21 days for the 2 Vac and 13 days for the 2nd Vac. And parvo test is suggested after vaccination completed? Does vaccination not mean that the pups are supposed to be protected against parvo?














Pic 3 - Look at how the stickers for the vaccination were deliberately sticked onto the book. Noticed the 2nd sticker is covering the 1st. The vet is deliberately trying to deceive the owners and hoping that the owner does not check the stickers. Unlucky for the screwed up vet, we did check.
Pic 4 - Vaccine expired on 13 June 08 while vaccination was given on 25 June 08. Con job!!















Pic 5 - A closer look at the expired vaccination label. Look at the dates. No wonder the doc wants us to go back for a parvo test. They used expired products.
Pic 6 - A closer look. Look at how the other label was purposely stuck on top of the expired label.
Pic 7 - And finally you can see the name on the card is Dr. Siva.

Please help pass the word around to protect all our pets."

    Hi, I read your blog everytime you have a post. I just wanted to say that I use Dr. Siva and he has been only upright and honest with us. When I had my two dogs spayed, one of them had torn her internal sutures and this caused some complications. Dr. Siva wonderfully opened her back up and resutured her fixing the resulting hernia only asking that we pay for the four days worth of boarding. Because of that, we use and promote the use of his hospitals (we go to Damansara Clinic as it is much easier from where we stay). The expiration date issue minght have been a simple oversight with no malice intended.
    Love the blog, BTW. :)

    Thanks Froggie. Yes, it is always good to hear both sides. Yen is an animal rescuer and one of the best and most meticulous about everything from dog food to the right vet and trainer.

    She may seem overly cautious at times but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    Still, like I said, in a free country people should get to hear both sides. And your comments are most welcome. Thank you.
