Dr. Kim Castro id the head of this company and may love animals, but has no idea what she is doing. They overbook and you never get the appointment time you were scheduled for. I have been going to Dr. Kim Castro for over 6 years and thought she was the best. I have a dog that has what I was told by Dr. Castro to be dry skin. She needs baths twice a week minimum. She also had a scratch on her left eye from a cat I have that occurred during an episode of playing. I took her to Dr. Castro and she gave me eye drops and some cream to rub on her eyes and told me she would be fine in a few weeks and back to normal sight. She also had a few lumps and Dr. Castro told me they were just small cyst's. This time I felt like I needed a second opinion. I went to a different Vet called Well Pet Care Center in Deland and dealt with Dr. Buck where he informed me after many tests that her skin is in very bad condition and has a fugal disease and atomic dermatitis that needs to be treated for the rest of her life because it is not curable. Its been almost two full days and she is doing so much better as far as her skin. However, she is almost deaf in both ears because after time the skin causes build up and infections in the ear. I am happy to say that she is on treatments for that. I have also noticed that my dog has a hard time getting upstairs and I thought it was because she is small and just slips, but its because she is blind and has no pupil response in either eye. How can a vet not know these things. And to out the icing on the cake, the reason I brought my dog there in the first place. The lumps. They are in fact CANCER, and she is scheduled for surgery. I also thought I was helping my animals by taking them to the vet, but in fact I was only hurting them by bringing them to Dr. Castro. I am so blessed I took them to Dr. Buck. I don't know what will happen with my dog, but I know that I will never forgive the Animal Clinic of Edgewater for the issues that were misdiagnosed and overlooked, so she could move on to the next client. I would never recommend bringing your pet to this horrifying place that should be shut down.
