It's the law rabies shots but I know a waiver can be given for sick animals. I did not know then but learned alter that sick dogs should never be vaccinated! My dog was vaccinated with her having a kidney infection. She was healthy other than the infection. In less than three weeks my dog went into full blown Kidney Failure. Now it can be debated whether or not the rabies shot caused the Kidney Failure but there is no debate that the vet should not had given her the shot with her being sick. Then after all the money we had paid upfront they would not work with us on the rest and in fact they would had let our dog die before treating her any at all. This is tragic that any vet or doctor would let anyone or any pet die when they have the means to try to save them. They deserve their pay but just to let a dog die is tragic and if they don't care that much about a pet they should not be a vet! I can understand routine costs the vet making people pay upfront but in a matter of life or death or when a customer has proved them self they are good payers they should work with people. When the vet at Pine Valley was just going to let our dog die we found the best most caring vet in the world, Dr. wicks that cared about our dog's life and our dog got so much better she acted like a puppy and lived another year and we paid Dr. Wicks ALL we owed!
