"I was just about start a discussion about this!
I noticed the new "Mobile Vet" Van today in Boquete when I went to pick up my daughter from school and I thought I must ask the ningbats if anyone knows what this is all about.
""$40,000 to remove a gallbladder using minimally invasive surgery, while one in Orange Park, Fla., charged $91,000. "
Is this in Pesos?!!
$91,000 US Dollars to have your Gallbladder out?! Im quite happy with the $1800 I was…"
Can you give us a specific list of what you need? I know someone who is willing to help but we need to know what items you need us to get. I did send you a message via pm.. but I havent heard back.
"Hello, We are Steve and Linda Banks and are moving to Boquete in January2014. Linda and I had two Boxers that have passed away and we miss them like crazy. When we arrive in January and get settled into a house we want to get a male and female…"
My initial message is below. I had a dog that desperately needed putting down. She had a failing heart, then had a stroke and went blind on the very day that was husband was having major surgery in David, so I couldn't take her to David to a vet. My gardener suggested that Cuco could come to the house and take care of it. He came, and it was the most agonizing experience of my life. He first tranquilized her, she staggered about for about 20 minutes, then he gave the life-ending dose which also didn't take effect for another 5 to 10 minutes. This is ancient technology! His veterinary practices are way, way out of date. I'll never forgive him for the agony he put her (and me) through.
Samantha, do NOT use the local vet, Cuco. We had a very bad experience with him, too long to go into here. He is not well-trained. Amigos de Animales does not recommend him, either. After having visited numerous vets in the area, I highly recommend Happy Pet in David. Turn left off the Interamerican as though you were going to Hospital Chiriqui. Take the second road on the left; the clinic will be on your right. Dr. Samuel and Dra. Patrizie are the best in this area.
