Went in to get the thyroid levels checked on my cat. Usually they're pretty high but he's been on medication to control it. Tried to bring a few other issues to the attention of the vet but all he cared about was getting a blood test, which I knew had to be done, I just figured he would be interested in hearing some of the other symptoms I noticed (so naïve). Blood test came back and he said my cat's thyroid levels were low. Naturally, I assumed that meant the medication was doing too good a job. I was surprised when he told me to double the dosage (but stop giving him the thyroid food). When I pressed him to explain why because it didn't seem logical to me since it seemed pretty obvious that the issue was that the medication was doing too good a job he just kept repeating "that's what the specialist said." He admitted that he didn't look at my cat's file or anything before calling me to give me the results of the blood test. Said that it could be a urine infection (which if he checked my file he would have seen that my cat had bladder issues before...) or low blood pressure. When I asked why my cat's blood pressure wasn't taken when I brought him in he said "we can't check blood pressure." (why tell me?!?!) I again asked why he would suggest it and where I could go to get it checked and his response (typical by this point) was "that's what the specialist said"
Did a little research myself on the symptoms of hypothyroidism.. guess what... many of them are the ones I was trying to describe to the vet during the appointment.
Told me I should bring my cat in again in 2 weeks for a check- up... no chance! Never going back.
