im looking to get the story of what happened to my precious charlie out the public and let people know his story and what has happened. My goal for the #Justice4Charlie page is to inform the public and hopefully avoid another family from going through what ive been going through since June 19th, 2015,
I took Charlie in on June 19th, 2015 for what i though was a routine neuter procedure to Banfield Animal Hospital here in Hagerstown, Maryland. I dropped him off at 7:30am that morning, as the day went along i had heard nothing from the hospital or vet doing the procedure until about 2pm, the vet stated that she gave him 1 does of tranqualizers, she states the 1st dose did not work as it was supposed to, so she waited an hour and proceeded to give him a 2nd dose, but her records show that was not true, as records and her medical flow chart shows she actually gave him 2 doses of tranquilizers at 9:45am, and then a 3rd dose at 11:45am. According to her records Charlie started having issues at 12:20pm, as she started to give him epinephrine and atropine at 12:20pm, she continued giving him those drugs till 12:37pm, and according to his records and her charting at 12:40pm charlie went asystole there was no sp02 readings at all his heart rate was low from the time she started this procedure but yet she continued on with the procedure as nothing was wrong. His anesthetice depth was DEEP. So during the 1st phone call she stated that she had issues getting him calmed down before surgery and she "pumped" him with medicine which was stated by her out of her own mouth., she stated to me that charlie was so far under that he had not woke up yet, and was not breathing on his own, that they were breathing for him, she said she would call me back with an update. So at 4:09pm was the 2nd and last phone call i received from the vet or hospital, she told me that he was still not awake and was not breathing on his own, and that they closed at 7pm, and if he had not woke up and started to breathe on his own then we would be faced with the decision of letting him go or transferring him to an emergency clinic in town.She stated that if his heart stopped then he would not survive the ordeal, i was on my way to the hospital at that time and she knew this, when i arrived at the hospital at 4:30pm, i was rushed into a room where the dr came in to tell me he did not make it and had died, i asked her what happened, as she stood there with this blood work, that she had taken at 2:09pm, no blood work before surgery, she told me she dont know what happen as all his blood work had come back normal. I asked to see his body in which the vet tech brought him into me, and to the touch charlie was very cold which made me think he had been gone for some time. I asked the vet tech if his heart finally just gave out, and to my shock his response was no, she stopped all measures on her own, without my consent to do so, she took it upon herself to let my precious charlie pass. After getting all his records and his medical flow chart as well, i noticed that at 4:10pm, just 1 minute after she had talked to me she decided to stop the breathing measures on him without my consent. My husband was served a peace order by the police from this vet as well. I have been in contact with Banfield's medical director for the northeast division since june 19th, 2015, he told me there would be a peer review done on her and this case and they would get to the bottom of what happened. On june 26th, 2015, this medical director called me and as we talked he proceeded to tell me that so far in the peer review process they have found that this vet did not follow proper protocol, he would not tell me the specific areas that he was referring to, this vet is still practicing to this day, which should not be if you are being investigated for killing an animal. I have had several medical professionals read charlies records and her charting as well, and all have come to the same conclusion that he was overdosed on anesthesia from the very beginning. Some have even suggested that when Charlie's heart stopped at 12:40pm she never got him back, and they believe that her records might even have been altered. This vet lied to me through out this whole ordeal, she told me she followed the same protocol as she did with him on may 22nd, 2015 when he was put under for his dental cleaning, but her records show when you compare the 2, that is simply not true. When you compare the 2 visits you can see that she added a 3rd drug on 6/19, and she even upped one of the medicines that she did use on 5/22 to almost double the dose that she had used. The peer review is still on going, i plan on filing a complaint with the state veterinarian board here in maryland, and i also plan to file a complaint with the national veterinarian board as well. Our family has been ripped apart over this ordeal, as Charlie was a rescue that we saved back in 2012 from going to a shelter to possibly be euthanized as an owner surrender. There is a hole in our hearts that will be very hard to fill with him not here. Charlie was a very gentle giant, that all he wanted was love, and we loved this boy with our hearts, we made sure he had his medical needs, if any, were treated, we got him the best of foods, we loved him unconditionally even though he had his faults when he met new people, and he loved us unconditionally as well. With hopefully get his story out to our local news station and hopefully getting his story out on social media it will hopefully help another family from going through the heartbreak that we are feeling now.ince June 19th, 2015,

And this is what Banfield's own peer review found on their very own vet. This information came from their very own Medical Director.

 

well peer review is done i spoke to medical director today, they didnt actually say "overdosed" but in their words he was given "the wrong combination of drugs" sounds like an overdose to me, and she BROKE SEVERAL PROTOCOL'S not only on the 6/19 visit, but they checked his 5/22 visit and found protocols were broken there as well and said luckily he woke up from that one
