Default Irresponsible/Negligent vet @ Taman Megah

My 5-yr old golden retriever left me today and I'm still shocked at how things happened. Last Sunday my dog wandered out when the auto gate opened (he does that occasionally) and came back after 30 mins or so. Later that night he threw up his food, went to check on him and didn't think much of it as dogs do vomit sometimes.

On Monday he definitely seemed to be more serious, he couldn't eat as he puked again and couldn't stand up. I suspect that he ate something bad during his venture out on Sunday. So I brought him to YEOH VETERINARY in Taman Megah early Tuesday, the doctor said to leave him overnight. I did express my opinion that I think he might have ingested poison because his symptoms matches what I've read up online. They did a blood test that day and kept him overnight at the clinic.

Come Wednesday my poor baby is looking worst, he couldn't even stand up anymore when he saw me and could only drink some water. Then the doctor in charge says they will do an X-ray later that day because Wed was holiday and they were supposed to be very 'busy'.
Anyways the X-ray came back negative and they wanted to do another type of contrast X-ray to get better view of his stomach but I still keep reminding the doctor that I think he ingested poison but he just brushed it off. This morning when I went to the vet early morning the nurse had the guts to told me "your dog is doing fine!!" But when I went to the back of the clinic to check on my dog, all I found was his STIFF and LIFELESS body, facing the inside of the cage.

In all 3 days I've never even meet this Dr. Yeoh at all, since he's supposed to be very experienced. I've only dealt with a young doctor whom seems to be pretty clueless. He keeps thinking my dog had foreign body obstruction from swallowing large objects and when he saw my dead dog's body only he said, "I guess he died from poisoning" WTF I don't need him to tell me that, esp after my dog has left me.

Last but not least the clinic charges OUTRAGEOUS price, the overnight of my dog at their place was like Rm 700 2 nights and this morning only they nurse say they don't even have anybody there during night. Sorry to offend anybody here with my rant but I'm just completely devastated. I've lost my buddy for 5 years too abruptly, compounded with the very unprofessional staff at this clinic just makes my pain more unbearable. If this clinic thinks they can charge outrageous price while staying negligient on our beloved pets then owners here should take note!

Thanks for the reply, this Dr. Yeoh is supposed to be very experienced but I've never seen him over 3 days and only a young doctor was in liaise with me.

Until now I still don't know exactly what was the cause of death of my buddy. Mind you he has been healthy throughout 5 years' time and never had any sickness. Send him in for 3 days and all I get is the cold, lifeless body.

They do all these tests and charge hundreds of ringgit and eventually I was the one that found out my buddy died, pretty ironic huh?

I'm surprised. Yeoh is my cat's vet for 4 years and I have no problem with them. I've only seen Dr.Yeoh once,it was years ago.

sorry to hear your loss.
is yeoh vet ur regular vet for 5 years?

first thing to pet owners, if ur pet is in a case of emergency, and you think the vet is not doing all he can, you should immediately seek 2nd opinion, or take ur pet to another clinic, don't wait.

it is sad but true, old and reputable vets have been working for too long, and some have bad health themselves, and some wants to take a break, so it is left to the young and inexperience vets to take over the reputable clinic.

1) I too brought my lab retriever to this Yeoh clinic many years ago. My lab had maggots infection and the 'young' doctor there said that they'll need to have an operation on him and he has to be left there for 3 days. After that 3 days my lab definitely looked weaker and he isn't cured at all. The maggots were still there and their charges were expensive. They didn't mention anything about cure etc. My lab died in few weeks after that.

2) Annual boosters by this vet are 3-4 times more expensive than other vets. I have never seen Dr Yeoh myself even though i visited for more than 7 years. Each time I visit them it's always a different junior doctor, and when they see my fierce looking dogs, they do not want to carry them up to the table and thus do the boosters on the floor.
Very unprofessional.
