Great to hear Barney, glad your dog pulled through. They sound like they know what theyre doing.
I'll definitely be calling over to this clinic and getting my 2 girls a full check up.
Thank you

I used AEC vet for years for my 4 dogs but never again.

My oldest one was ready to be put down due to hip failure resulting in an inability to get up or walk, took him to AEC and he said "his heart is ok so not put down, he ok" after explaining the distress the dog was in as well as me he refused to do anything.

I took the dog round to the airport vet and the guy there took one look and said "this not good for the dog, he cannot stand" after confirming I was 100% sure I wanted him put down he started the procedure immediately.

So thankful to find a vet that cares more about the animal than his stupid Buddhist belief.

RIP Black

Luckily you found a responsible vet , who recognised that your pet was in pain garym1959.
Its heartrending to see a member of your family suffer.
It has been stated that AEC are one of the few vets in Udon who will put your pet to sleep when its neccessary , but that is obviously not the case.

That was the reason I started using them because I had heard that but when the time came he refused.

I had no problem with AEC putting my dog down. I believe the female doc is more inclined to perform the deed than the male doctor. She is the one who initially pointed out that this was the most humane course of action based solely upon my dog's age. As an aside, they have always informed me that they do not do blood testing, rather send it out. I've had three different instances where blood work was required and always had to wait four to five hours for results.
Hit 'em hard, hit 'em fast, hit 'em with the one they don't expect, and just keep hitting.

I normally use the VET near me ( Sakon Nahkon Road) past the PT Garage going towards Nong Khai , however recently one of my dogs developed a tumour on her mammary glands and was advised by her ( the vet ) to use one of the Animal Hospitals, I could not find the one opposite Prajak school on the ring road, so I went all the way to the AEC, efficient and quick, problem solved in 24 hrs. Cost 7k for a full hysterectomy as the tumour was spreading to her reproductive system.

I did confirm that they do put animals to sleep a rare find in Thailand as many will no desp[ite their oath, it seems Budda knows best and allows animals to die in pain . A further poibt was that a bllod test was carried out in house ( a formal test before op I think ) .

Will use Animal hosps only for ops and the final time if required .

Tracechain, if they did send your pets bloodwork out, it must have been in the past, because now its 100% done in house, as you only have to wait 10 to 15mins for the results, and as I have said before, theyre lab results are not to be trusted.
If you want to risk your pets health, then that is your choice, I just posted my experience in order to warn you guys.

For clarification in my mind, the Vet by the airport and AEC are two different establishments. AEC is located directly across from the small Big C (the other Big C in town is bigger that's why I call the smaller one the small Big C) in one of the office suites and adjacent to an auto paint store. Small place, maybe two to three meters wide storefront footprint. The Vet by the airport (I have no idea what their business name is) is located on the same road that you turn off to go to the airport. This is the short four-lane road with a zillion (that's a lot) motorbikes with school kids hanging off because there is a school on this short stretch of road as well, plus a busy 7-Eleven and the numerous food stands belching charcoal smoke. Right smack dab in the middle of this road is the turn to the airport and depending upon which way you are approaching the airport; it can be a rather daunting experience making the turn. The Vet by the airport, in my mind, is the standalone structure off to the right and down on the opposite side of this four-lane road as you exit left from the airport, and is considerably larger than AEC. Note: If I offend some by not using road names and you feel compelled to point this out, then, by all means, do so. I gave up trying to find, let alone see any road signs so I use landmarks to navigate.

It’s very sad to hear Thecroc4’s experience, it’s awful losing a dog it’s a bit like losing a family member and the grief can be just as painful. I personally have 4 dogs all of whom are under AEC, all (like humans) get sick from time to time and I always take them to Dr Panurak at AEC in whom I have complete and utter faith, I’m 100% confident she will always do the best she can and despite some of the comments above I will definitely continue to do so. I’ve had dogs all my life and I’ve used many, many vets, some good, some bad, this is of course what you’d expect but even the good can make a mistake (I’m not saying AEC did or didn’t I might add) mistakes are possible if not quite likely, personally I would rank AEC up there with the best but not even they can be perfect. In any case I’m sure she’d be mortified if she felt she’d let a dog die unintentionally, she loves animals and wouldn’t do anything to harm them, hence her choice of job.

Once again, sorry to hear about the loss of your dog.

Vince, thank you for your kind words.
I understand why you have so much confidence in Dr.Panurak, because I was once like you. I always found her to be professional, friendly and kind with my dogs, thats why we always went to her. 2 of my dogs had to have minor operations and I couldnt have been happier with the way everything went. I always loved the fact that she could explain everything to me in detail as sometimes my wife didnt have the vocab to explain to me what was wrong with my pet. Like I said thats why we always went to AEC.
Thats why its so hard to understand why she didnt see my dogs illness. I could have got a second opinion but I trusted her. And yes , I'm angry with her and AEC for making that mistake. If they had seen it a month earlier, I would still have him here today.
The reason I originally posted here is to warn you guys about their lab facilities. I dont know what the problem is, but i know there is a problem.
If your pet is not doing well , but AEC say everything is ok, maybe get a second opinion or ask her to send the bloodwork out to be tested. Just for peace of mind. I'm regretting not doing that.
