animal rescue people are stating that the animals coming out of button brand are worse than when them went in. The parvo outbreak they had verifies the cleanliness ability.
Parvo is very nearly the most difficult virus to control. The parvovirus itself can live in the ground, cracks, clothes, shoes, walls, rocks or whatever for up to eight years. The virus is extremely easy to spread and does so through out every single vet clinic in the history of vet clinics. That is why it is so imperative to vaccinate your animals properly,(do not buy your vaccinations from a feed store, or tractor supply. Let the doctor handle the vaccinations) and wash your hands before and after you handle any animal in any adoptive facility. As for the general health of animals that get picked up and are left for the clinic to care for, it is never guaranteed that those animals are going to remain in good health, meaning that the veterinarians cannot afford to test ever single dog and cat for illnesses that will cause them issues later on in life. Sometimes the animal doesn't get sick or show symptoms until after they are adopted out, and in which case, the veterinarian cannot be held accountable.

Get all the facts straight, older dogs are "not likely" to get parvo. it Mostly affects puppies, that is why you get the shots early.

The county doesn't give a care!!!!!
Trixie wrote:
The county should be looking into what is being said is taking place at that Vet office, Button Brand, since the County animals are being sheltered there. They were just given there new contract in May from what was stated by the County at that animal ordinance meeting. The animals deserve to be treated humanely wherever they are sheltered and kept. These animals should have never been placed with various vets over the last years. They were placed first with Staley and then with Button Brand when the County didn't want to pay the City for sheltering at the City shelter when the city had increased their rates. Seems like the County has been paying plenty to these vets that have since come in the picture. The animals shouldn't have ever been put in such positions where there is conflict of interests and possibly other issues present. Things weren't that great at the other vets office either for County animals.

I could have saved you a ton of money. I would have put two bullets through the heads of your mutts for free. That quack of a vet ripped you off I guarantee it. Did you go to his place of business or did you have to take your mutts down to the jail to get him to do it?

Hmm....where to start? First off I wish I had found this thread sooner. I am an actual former not disgruntled employee. The only reason I am no longer working at Button Brand, is because I had to move. Operation of the x-ray machine had to be done by an experienced assistant. If you were not trained yet, the doctor himself would take the x-ray.

Dr. Hays is an excellent surgeon. As for the patients that bled out after a routine spayÖIn my experience this has only ever happened one of two ways (at any clinic). One way is when a patient had an underlying disease that was not caught before surgery due to the owner declining blood work before the procedure. These tests can help detect anemia, dehydration, diabetes, kidney disease and liver disease. All these conditions can contribute to complications in anesthesia and surgery. The blood work is recommended for all pets, but highly recommended for pets 6 years and older. This information is on the surgical release form at Button Brand that must be signed by the owner before the procedure. The other way is when a patient is allowed to be too active at home after the procedure. Upon release after surgery owners are advised: no running, no jumping, & no playing. This is to prevent the stress of them bouncing around and stretching their bellies from injuring the interior or exterior stitches. Neither of these reasons are any indicator of surgical quality.

As for the parvo outbreaks, the pups are brought in by the sheriff's department into the county shelter at Button Brand. They are vaccinated upon arrival, but there is no way to prevent them from getting a disease if they are already exposed to it before getting there and getting vaccinated.

For those who say he is all about money really donít know him very well. Dr. Hays is one of the most compassionate veterinarians I have ever worked with. He has lost so much money catering to those who cannot afford the care their animal needs. This includes county animals or animals brought into the veterinary clinic. The county does not pay for anything additional than what was set in the contract. The donations go either to the animal the donation is specified for, or to a general collective fund to be used for the shelter animals. Donations also only go so far and has never paid for any of the animals that are brought into the clinic where the owner cannot pay for the services rendered.

The clinic never opened at 8am...8:30 was the earliest anyone was available to take an animal for drop off, and the clinic still did not technically open until 9am.

If you have had a bad personal experience with the front staff, the shelter, or the clinic in general, have you reported it to the management or the doctor so they could address it?
