The bottom line for Banfield is MONEY, not pet care. I've worked there, I've seen the memos from corporate, I've gotten the speeches about selling selling selling those stupid wellness plans, I've seen them push treatments on dogs that don't need it (A dental on a 14 year old Afghan Hound, who by the way, died on the table as I was doing the dental)......
I hate Banfield. I could go on for hours.
Find another vet. You hit the nail on the head. Banfield wants your money.
