Longs Peak Animal Hospital

Debra Davison is a horrible vet. Do not let this woman treat your pets. She almost killed mine by rushing into a diagnosis which was incorrect. We took our dog in as he had been sick (vomiting, no appetite, lethargic, etc) for a few weeks. The hospital took four x-rays – none of which showed anything unusual or abnormal. However, Davison became convinced, despite no actual proof, that my dog had some type of obstruction in the stomach or intestines. Instead of taking time to run all appropriate tests and consider all options, she practically forced us into a $3500 exploratory surgery. I even asked her if there were any other options or tests we could do before surgery and the only things she came up with was either an ultrasound or a barium contrast x-ray – both costing over $500 and according to her, not very reliable. No once did it ever occur to her to mention a quick, painless, and inexpensive blood panel. Only by sheer luck did she run a blood test before starting the surgery, then informed me, "It's a good thing I did the blood panel first, if I would have put him under anesthesia, he probably would have died." She admitted to my face that she almost killed him out of negligence and impatience, and made it sound like she was some sort of hero for saving his life. Even if he had survived, it would have cost us the $3500, plus he would have still been sick! I don't trust this woman, her judgment, or her ability to safely practice pet medicine. Beware!
