5 Jakarta Animal Clinics

A few days back i received a disturbing complaints from one of my closest friend whose Golden Retriever, Mexico, got really sick with heart problem and muscle spasm. After being admitted to the government-run animal hospital ini Ragunan, the problem was just beginning.
Let’s start off with not a very thorough examinations and care from doctors and staff. Mexico’s family also didn’t get proper information on the progress of his condition. Long story short, Mexico passed away after being treated for 8 days. Even more sadly, they found his body was already stored improperly. Needless to say that my friend was outraged by the behaviour of the hospital who takes things too easy and acts like they don’t give two shits about the animal they are suppose to care for (read the full chronology here). This is not the first, and won’t be the last as i have been hearing complaints about the hospital for too long now.
And what’s more embarrassing? it’s a state-owned animal hospital. With so many complaints being directed at the hospital, we think it’s high time we recommend you five other animal clinics where you can take your furry friends to get the treatment they deserve….properly
