i was a regular customer of this clinic for 3 years, during which time i had taken my lab to this place numerous times - be it for nail clipping to giving a medicated bath to trimming the fur. as most of the reviewers will tell you this place is spotlessly clean and the staff are very friendly. Although it burns a hole in your pocket everytime you take your pet here, it wasnt something i complained about, i was just glad there was a place providing these service for my pet. My lab suddenly fell ill one fine day and we took her to cessna immediately during which time they took some tests and asked us to come back the next day. however, my labs condition worsened the next day and we still didnt have any solid diagnosis due to which they ran m ... View Moreore tests.The 3rd day we took her to the hospital on an emergency case basis as she started throwing up blood. My lab had not eaten for 3 days now and during the last visit she was given saline and some medication. On our 3rd visit the doctor was still unable to answer my questions as to what was happening to her and instead told me that they have 3-4 IV bags that they need to give her,which would take most of the day and eventually the test result would show up and promised me to make a proper diagnosis. My lab lasted an hour at the clinic and had a stroke and died right there in the hospital. I didnt blame the doctors for what happened then however, today my cousins dog who was being treated by Cessna since last week passed away this morning and the case is something similar - where it took them a long time to come up with the test results and then making an incomplete diagnosis View Less
not too happy. they did not do a thorough check up when i took my HONEY(MY PET) IN dec 2016. some treatment was done. i lost my pet in june 2017. one girl was warning me in the hospital premises in DECEMBER 2016. ------if only i had paid attention to her.!
Worst hospital i have ever come across...my dog needed oxygen...without which he could not even breathe...that attending doctor anyway i dont wanna mention his name..he says if i keep givin oxygen to your dog my hospital will run out of oxygen...i doubt is he doctor or wardboy...worst experience....
Apart from being Very very expensive, they are incompetent! my puppy of 12 weeks died because he had distemper, a very contagious disease and the doctors could not figure it out unti 3 days before his death. We kept bringing him for everyday drips etc and they did not even bother checking for this particular disease. He should have been vaccinated for this within 8 weeks but they were just careless!!! i lost my puppy because of their carelessness!!
My Pet has been a very healthy dog. HE has had a small ear infection which is under review for last 2 motnhs. WE have spent apporx 10000/- for hair cut, anul cleaning, regular check ect. In regular check, 15 days back the same ear
Note: Dr. Pavan can still feign some concern, but Dr. Ajitesh is the worst. His motto- Treat any animal with as many antibiotic injections as possible to fill up the 5000 rupees quota, then ask questions to ascertain what the issue is.
Its been a year since my cat died. I was much too shocked and upset about her death to write about her misdiagnosis and wrong treatment at Cessna Clinic, Bangalore. But I think, its about time since someone returned the favor to them.
The day it happened...
My cat was fine till the day before and had eaten her dinner. Lately she was feeling a little depressed since we had brought in a younger cat as a favor to a friend of ours, the younger cat's owner, who was leaving the country. Although our cat was still playful ( and sweet and clingy) with us and our dogs, she hadn't taken to this younger cat too well. But after about a month of him also being there and not much to suggest that our older cat was too depressed to eat or play, we wen ... View Moret about our normal routine.
Then suddenly, the day she died, our cat started behaving very oddly. She stayed outside for sometime in the morning while we were watering our plants. Usually she used to rub her back against the stone, playfully. Wondering what was wrong, and why she was so fatigued and lanky, I called our vet, who couldn't come as he was in some other surgery. We thought we'd wait for a little while longer and I tried to pet her, but she kept jumping away. Then I picked her up and placed her on my lap and there she slept for a little while. Then I had to go feed our other pets, so I got off. Even my sister and dad were keeping an eye on her. However, when I returned to my room, the cat went into the bathroom where her litter was kept and I had put fresh litter in it, so it was clean, she went and lied down on it. I thought that was a wrong sign, so we decided to not wait any longer and brought out the car and took her to the clinic we knew, halfway across town.
Our cat was obviously not feeling well. She was moaning, but she did that regularly whenever we took her to see the vet. I called up the clinic, Cessna to fix up an appointment, when the lady said, please bring your cat we'll attend to her. We reached the clinic at 6 pm. There was a long queue and also loads of pets were going in, the moment their owners came to drop them off- don't really know how the appointment thing works. Anyway, we finally got to see the doctor at 8 pm, two hours after we reached the place. Till then there was nothing to suggest that our cat had anything more than an upset stomach, or allergy, or fever that was making her feel listless.
Anyway, they pumped in hundreds of antibiotics with her drip and once she started slipping into some kind of coma, the doctors went on pressurizing us to admit that we hadn't been careful and that she must have vomited during the day or consumed some kind of poison. No sir, she never went out of the house. No poisonous insects, no chance of neighbors also reaching our house. We lived on the top floor of a 6 story building with no other flat on our floor. So yeah, no chance of her having escaped to some place to eat something from outside. Plus, she was in a perfectly healthy and playful mood till the night before and no inclination of any sickness till after 3 pm on the day she died. She had not vomited at all. We were there with her constantly and had come back home to disinfect the whole house, concerned if it was something contagious that she had contracted it would affect out other pets- and there was no sign of any vomit or any other discharge.
The senior doctor, Dr. Pavan, then pronounced after seeing our cat for the first time that day that it was in a 'critical state' and that we should have brought her in earlier- Well, you think!
By 8:30 pm our cat passed away while the vets were preparing to go home. There was a guy waiting in the corridor handy, to bury our cat on his way back. They wrapped up her body in a piece of cloth and put her in a sack and took her away. Their only concern was would we want to keep her collar and bell? Yeah, right! Thanks a lot, doctor!
Then the bill for the medicines and burying charges was â¹2500, all inclusive. :) Weren't we joyous.
So anyone who loves their pets, please don't take them to Cessna unless you want to come home empty-handed, heart heavy as lead, and tears to blur your vision while you're driving home. My dogs went into depression having lost their friend, and well, it has taken me more than a year to write this. I wish someone shuts down the clinic from hell. View Less
They used to be compassionate... Not any more.... They have no time for your dog......drips is so common there... My poor dog had become so very lethargic... they told me she was fine and put her on a drips without even checking what could be the underlying problem...She passed away the next day... Only then for me to find out that cessna had too many cases of deaths... If only i knew! :-(
