If you think that what has been said about Dr. BUTCHER Stewart is negative, Their is much more to come. Just wait until the season starts I have enough time and money to put him out of business. You can take that to the bank!
Of course you have enough money so why are you crying about the $5000.00 he cost you?

The news is out, we finally know how bad this place is!! There was a dog that was rescued and a woman adopted it. She took it this office and the fearful dog snapped (but didn't bit the technician)and it was agreed between the woman and this Dr. Stewart that the dog should be put to sleep! The dog was like any other dog in that environment and if that's the first time they've dealt with that...hmmm...they have a problem, don't they? Why didn't this Dr. Stewart recommend that the rescue from which this dog was adopted, or any rescue for that matter, be contacted before putting him to sleep?
Oh, I got it! He is heartless and he wanted the $$$$. Not hard to figure out, is it?
I didn't see you there that day! I must have blinked because I was there and I know what happened

It's funny how the same comments come from the same person, only under different names. Maybe if you would have listened to the vet in the first place, you wouldn't be on here bad mouthing a great vet and great staff. The other funny thing is your dog is alive and doing well. Stop trying to make people feel sorry for you and get life.
HEY DUMB DUMB! My Dog is Alive (not well--but alive!) I NEVER CLAIMED THAT MY DOG WAS DEAD! CAN YOU READ? CAN YOU FOLLOW DATES? THE DOGS THAT DIED UNDER STEWART CARE WAS NOT MY (THANK GOD)! MY DOG CAME CLOSE TO DYING AFTER BRINGING HIM TO STEWART FOR WEEKS B/C HE COULDN'T HOLD HIS URINE AFTER HIS BLADDER SURGERY. SINCE YOU CAN'T SEEM TO FOLLOW: MY DOG CAUGHT A STAPH INFECTION. IN CASE YOU DON'T KNOW, STAPH INFECTION COULD BE DEADLY IF NOT CAUGHT EARLY! AFTER 10+ VISITS WITH STEWART AND NO IMPROVEMENT, I TOOK MY DOG FOR A 2ND OPION--THANK GOD. THE NEW VET SENT OSCAR TO THE SPECIALIST WHO DISCOVERED THE BLADDER WAS ROTTING AWAY AND OSCAR NEEDED EMERGENCY SURGERY TO SAVE HIM!

"state a cause of action against a veterinarian who has performed surgery on an animal when the animal suffers an injury as a result or does not survive the surgery." Rather, malpractice is the appropriate cause of action."

JUSTICE FOR OSCAR SOON TO COME! I'll PROMISE YOU THAT!

ATTENTION NEW RESIDENTS TO VERO WITH PETS: I AM WILLING TO MEET WITH YOU AND SHOW YOU OSCAR'S MEDICAL RECORDS. I AM AN ANIMAL LOVER AND DON'T WANT TO SEE ANOTHER PET GO THROUGH WHAT OSCAR JUST WENT THROUGH--IT WAS AWEFUL! PAINFUL TO WATCH YOUR DOG JUST STARE AT YOU WITH THOSE PUPPY EYES LIKE: MOMMY DO SOMETHING TO MAKE MY PAIN GO AWAY. MANY NIGHTS HE WOULD HIDE UNDER THE BED and I FEAR HE WOULDN'T WAKE UP THE NEXT MORNING. Our New Vet referred to the specialist just on time! The dog had so much inflamation that his Lining to his Colon was glued to his bladder! You are welcome to review Oscar's Case.

It is one of their sheeps! And her statement shows how "caring" they are towards animals! I'd like to stick a needle in their bladder--make them scream like the pigs they are! Then again, with all that Fat, they probably wouldn't feel it!

To the Dumb Staff who keeps posting: Keep it Up! here is another tip: The more you guys post, this thread stays on the the top! YOU are keeping the story alive-on top!!(LMAO). No Brain cells at all!

""state a cause of action against a veterinarian who has performed surgery on an animal when the animal suffers an injury as a result or does not survive the surgery." Rather, malpractice is the appropriate cause of action."
WARNING TO PET OWNERS

Vero Beach, FL

This STAPH infection is very dangerous. Pay close attention to your pet after surgery. Follow your gut instints! There are too many incompetent vets practicing surgery b.c that's where their profit margin is!$100 for an office visit Vs.$1000 for surgery.

Here is another case: "The most common way our dogs contract this is through surgery.

Unfortunately, my own dog contracted this scary and dangerous infection after she had acl surgery for one of her knees. The bacteria enters the dog’s body by way of catheters, surgical wounds, feeding tubes or invasive medical procedures. With dog health care being so advanced today, you would think this cannot happen. However, with people and pets, it is a very real possibility.
This is something that is a potential risk for anyone owning a pet and them having to undergo surgery. Recognizing the signs and symptoms could save your dog if they contract it from an acl surgery or from another surgical procedure.
Suture Used by Live Oak

Vero Beach, FL

#56 Sep 16, 2011
I have done weeks of research and here is another secret how clinics are saving money! This letter was filed by the P.A of J&J-Ethicon, the Suture Company. "If polypropylene suture were resterilized using cobalt radiation (common sterilization method for most of medical devices due to its low cost and efficient operation), the catastrophic failure of those suture materials during surgery would be expected, which may cause serious complication or even death.
"Opened polypropylene suture packages left from surgery have the possibility of being
handled by the hospital staff or other personnel who have not received training on using
suture material. This may cause surface defects on the suture material. Recycling those
suture materials into product by repackaging and resterilization without defect
inspection will likely produce defective sutures that may impose serious surgical risk to
the patient. This information can be found at www.fda.gov
It is no wonder Stewart's Clinic on US-1 CLOSED!

To Stacee comment: "it has nothing to do with the "suturing".
I agree with you that has NOTHING to do with Suturing! But Stewart blames it on the Suture!!!! Again, you are welcome to see Oscar's File and Stewart latter BLAMING IT ON THE SUTURE!

Maybe you didn't keep your dog clean?? Really Stacee? Please tell me I didn't keep the INSIDES of my dog clean? I am dying to hear this one!

You statement of Maybe this, Maybe that, sounds like Stewart. Lets try this today if it doesn't work, I'll try that tomorrow and if doesn't work, OH Well! Mean time the Dog was in so much pain! So much inflamation that his Colon Lining was Glued to his Bladder! He was dying! Even the specialist told us we had brought in just in time! What if we couldn't afford the emergency surgery? Take a wild guess what would had happened to the Dog? You people can't be animal lovers! Animal lovers don't defend someone who has hurt them and almost had them killed!

HOW PEOPLE ARE MAKING STATEMENTS AND KNOW NOTHING ABOUT OSCAR'S CASE. You are making statements that are not related to Oscar's case! Stop believing every thing these people tell you! They HAVE to lie to cover up their F*** Ups! If you think they are going to tell the truth to their clients, you are living in a different planet! Again: Please tell me how I didn't keep his INSIDES CLEAN? Was I suppose to flush his inside by sticking a hose down his throat? Should I had used a little detergent? Try telling Stewart "It had nothing to do with the Suture!(I agree with you on that)! And the Drug company agreed as well! He didn't sterilized the bladder properly OR he used opened packages of suture which can become infected! Read up on it. I posted the a letter from the DFA! AND PLEASE: STOP GUESSING WHAT HAPPENED! WE HAD ENOUGH OF THE GUESSING GAMES BY STEWART!

Wow it seems that when things go wrong for someone they zone in on one thing bad that happens in a million years of practice. I've known Dr. Stewart for 20 some odd years and have dealt with him and his staff for that long. Everyone that has worked with him has been very nice and has treated me and especially my pets as a family member. You don't realize the work that goes into caring for little creatures that can't talk. And furthermore I have personally seen his surgery and would trust him to even take care of myself if the emergency should arise. So I fully support him and ALL of his staff whole heartedly and will not go anywhere else. So if anyone doesn't want to go there then more room for the rest of us!!!!

Why can't you focus on some positive things in your life instead of causing trouble for others???? You are only one person not the mass populus.

I have been going to Dr. Stewart for years and have had nothing but positive dealings. My boxer gets extremely stressed out by routine shots to the point where she tried to bite the assistants and Dr. Stewart. At no point did he suggest that I put her down over this event nor did he act as though he had never dealt with this issue before. He was completely calm and understanding. He and his staff took a gentle approach, calmed her down and took the time to help me implement things to decrease her apprehension about shots and nail trimming.

In reference to the situation where Dr. Stewart purportedly suggested putting an adopted dog down after it tried to nip at him, there must be a whole lot more to the story than what was presented here. And the line of thinking that he recommended putting the dog down to make money is nonsensical. Wouldn't he stand to make more money for years to come if the dog was alive? It's not very expensive to euthanize a dog, even at Stewart's office.

My boxer has also had some serious medical issues and he promptly referred me to a specialist. I agree with one of the posters above, unfortunate medical problems happen and it's not necessarily negligence or incompetence. Not that it could never be. I think it's important to do your own research, get a second opinion when you think it's warranted, and be your pet's best advocate. Diagnosis is not always straight forward and I would never recommend blindly following any doctor's advice, be it of pets or humans.

I can not begin to express my gratitude and respect for the entire staff at Live Oak Animal Hospital. The treatment and compassion for not only my pet, but also given to me was incredible. I can not recommend this wonderful group of people enough. Thank you to you all for being there for us.

I recently went to Live Oak with an emergency with my pet. Dr. Stewart's concern, demeanor and excellent care helped us through a very stressful time. He phoned us a number of times throughout the day, while our cat was under observation. We have lived in numerous states and found Dr. Stewart's s care , by far, the best we have ever experienced.
