Optimum Wellness Plans - Banfield Pet Hospital
I purchased a kitten on a farm and attempted to save her life. She was neglected by the owner, and he needed to get rid of her so she wouldn't freeze to death. It was freezing outside, where the litter resided; in a cold barn. We brought her home, and took her to PetSmart, and they insisted that I sign an agreement to have funds drafted out of my account. The cat had a severe ear infection, and she eventually died. I finally contacted Banfield Pet Hospital to tell them that I needed to cancel my contract since the cat died. They told me that I will still have to make payments in April, 02 2017 until January, of 2018. How Heartless!The other issue with Banfield is they really try to hard sell the Wellness program. Buyer beware! If your pet dies you are still liable for the remaining membership! They may transfer the program to a "new" pet ~ but what if that doesn't happen right away. You are still paying for the membership with no pet! Lastly, Banfield apparently has issues with retaining qualified veterinarians. This particular office (located in PetSmart) had only one vet and we had to wait a week to just get an exam appointment. They also said scheduling surgery could be up to four weeks. Granted my dog was not in an emergency but four weeks!? All in all this is a VERY shady business with the pricing alone being a huge rip off. Because Banfield is associated with PetSmart I will be taking all my pet care needs to other more reputable businesses.I bought the insurance for my kitten, it ended up having a stomach disorder and I was grateful to have it. When my son came home from college the kitten escaped and was run over by a car. I had explained this to Banfield, they also said it was a contract and I as obligated to continue to pay for the insurance. Really??? That does not make sense to me. Does that make sense to anyone else? I asked if I could transfer the insurance to another pet and they said no. I have since been in collections, that was the fall of 2011. What a bunch of bologna. I will never use them again nor would I recommend anyone else. It is like extortion or the Mafia. I wont even shop at Petsmart either.By 2005, the company served 3.5 million animals annually at 450 clinics worldwide. That year the Banfield Charitable Trust was created to provide free care to economically disadvantaged pet owners. Banfield also opened a third stand-alone hospital, located in . In early 2007, PetSmart sold off part of its share of MMI, Banfield’s parent company.
