My cat had been displaying signs of illness for a very long time. She had vomited blood, lost weight, become weak, continued to vomit, and had times where she trembled and seemed to be collapsing. She vomited blood (a few times that I noticed) well over a year before she was finally, correctly diagnosed by a cancer specialist as having pancreatic cancer. When I phoned and told Westarbor and Dr Clarkson that she had vomited blood, he laughed and said his cat vomited all the time and then ate its own vomit. I asked about the blood and was told in a dismissive way that it was probably a ruptured blood vessel. I began bringing her in because I was concerned about her wellness. She seemed to be in pain. She was losing weight. She vomited a lot. She would become weak. He kept diagnosing constipation and hairballs. I am not kidding. This went on for MONTHS and all the while in reality she had Pancreatic Cancer and was suffering more and more and slowly dying. Her body could not digest food. Anytime she ate she would have been in great pain. She was finally diagnosed by another veterinarian as having Pancreatic Cancer- advanced stages. And finally she was put on pain meds to stop her suffering. I had to put her to sleep shortly after. She had every symptom of the disease. Westarbor never apologized and had an angry manner towards me, just adding to the distress level. Please, please, please, take heed.
