Why Did a Vet Remove This Dog’s Eye Without Its Owner’s Permission?
A visit to the vet turned into a nightmare for one pet owner in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Kimberly Hayden brought her dog, Chloe, into Banfield Animal Hospital for a follow-up visit after Chloe was diagnosed with a scratched cornea.
Hayden got the shock of her life later when she got a call from the hospital saying Chloe was recovering from surgery after having her eye removed. Hayden never signed off on that.
The vet’s office, while saying the surgery was “critical,” has admitted to making a mistake by performing the procedure without getting Hayden’s permission.
Despite the admission of guilt, or maybe even because of it, Hayden took to her Facebook page to say she may take legal action.
