My five year old mini dachshund Al-B jumped off a high bed in a hotel onto a hard floor. This happened on our drive down from Chicago. We could tell he was hurt, but we didn't know how bad it was. The next day, we saw a Vet in Fort Myers, and we were assured he was going to be alright. Within 24 hours, he couldn't walk. The vet referred us to SCAN in Naples. We saw Dr. Carnes on a Friday afternoon. She has two dachshunds of her own, and knew what the problem was immediately. After an MRI, it was revealed that Al-B had a ruptured disc, and four compressed discs. In addition, she told us that if we had waited any longer to get help, he would have been paralyzed. She performed surgery that evening. After the surgery, Dr. Carnes called and told us she expected a full recovery. We had to buy an enclosure, and a doggie stroller, to keep him from running and jumping. Luckily, his brother Bosco, our eleven year old dachshund, was a very calming influence on his little brother. It is now four weeks after surgery, and Al-B is doing great. We are so thankful that we were referred to SCAN. Because of Dr. Carnes, we have our little furbaby back. Thank you Dr. Carnes!
There are simply no words I can find to ensure that, if your reading this,your worries about your furbaby. Worry no more. This hospital is of the upmost importance when it comes to the wellness of your fur family member.The Drs and staff are just beautiful people.My almost 10 year old Brussels Griffon is back to near perfection. He was in such dire pain and was found to have crushed bone on bone discs.Now he walks and acts like a boss!!!Thank you Scan!!!!
It was a nice little surprise to find out that this place is better than any veterinary practice or facility I have been in.Dr Cook explained everything we needed to know about our pet's Epilepsy and gave us no BS facts and treatment options with the estimates upfront. They won't scare you or rush you into doing anything or do anything else without your consent, no unnecessary tests, no sales pitches and no BS!! As I said, this place is even more honest than any REGULAR vet I have visited in my dog's lifetime, and you get your pet evaluated by an experienced DACVIM, Board-Certified Neurologist.I won't hesitate to go back there again to continue treatment, and I highly recommend this place to anyone who has a pet with an acute or chronic condition.
Absolutely amazing! Dr. Cook is incredible and his staff is top notch! If your pet has neurological issues I would look no further! Thank you SCAN!
