Hi everyone. I just wanted to tell you all about a terrible mistake a vet made. My friend took a feral cat into a vet to get shots and to get it fixed. She didn't know the cat well at first, but it was friendly enough that she became fond of it and wanted to do the right thing so she took him to the vet. She didn't know the sex of the cat, but why would that matter right? The vet will check right? Well to her surprise and mine this vet didn't even check the sex of the cat before performing surgery to spay him! Yep...you heard it right, spay HIM! She became aware of the mistake when a few days later she had to take the cat to an emergency clinic because the sutures were opening up!. The vet there informed her that her cat was male and that he had already been neutered! I've never heard of such thing. We couldn't believe the vet performed this surgery before checking the sex! Anyways, to make a long story short...the vet made every excuse possible to avoid a refund or even an apology. Denied everything, told her it was her fault that she didn't tell them he was male etc etc. My friend is doing whatever possible to take action against this hospital!
