Curbside Vet,run by solo-operator and Vet named Dr. Sharif Lawendy, is a horrible example of abuse, arrogance, neglect, and outright stealing of someone’s beloved pet. | He took possession of my beloved dog, who had severe pneumonia and needed to be kept warm [I gave her blanket and winter coat to him and urged him to make sure she was kept warm and without any stress, and he assured me he would do so]. | This was Wednesday when he took her. After taking possession of my dog, he then played horrible psychological games with me… refused to let me see my dog, and when I told him after he had her for 24 hours to NOT give her a very dangerous drug, he did so anyway with outright arrogance and “control” of both me and my dog. | He literally hijacked my dog and caused me to have near emotional breakdowns several times. I had to get my busy Executive husband out of a meeting to call this Vet as he was deliberately “Screening” my urgent phone calls for him to give me back my dog and let me see her…. he just would not answer my urgent emails, nor my phone calls throughout the day. | I had to also get a second Veterinary Office, a “normal” one with an Office Manager, to get involved when he began his ‘Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde’ personality change. | He would outright lie to me when he finally called at the end of the day around 6pm [after a full day of my constant calling and begging to get a return phone call]. He would say, in the most creepy of tones that was also very condescending and manipulative, “Why are you so upset? I love your dog”…. and then he would complain about how busy he was and how popular he is with his RV curbside service in Fairfield County, CT. | The ego and Narcissism was difficult to get through. He tears the Owner down and then abuses them and then pretends to be so “caring” and has admitted in an email that I was a pain in the butt for him and that was why he ignored my calls. | BUT HE HAD MY DOG who was very, very sick and needed professional care, and to be in the hands of a truely good Doctor. | But no, he manipulated me, and clearly abused my dog while he illegally stole her for 6 full days… lying every step of the way… | “Oh, your dog is getting better” was the biggest lie of all. | No, she was getting worse and he failed to bother to communicate with me AT ALL but certainly with the truth that he was OVER HIS HEAD and needed to get my beloved dog to a better facility. | He denied me the opportunity to see my dog for six days. He lied to me. He manipulated me and abused ME, let alone what he did to my dog. | He is not to be trusted with any beloved pet. | Then, when he is out of control and over his head, he has his VET TECH dump my dogs dying body off at a 24 hour hospital over an hour away from my town of residence, and never bothers to tell me the dire condition that my dog is really in. | I rush to the hospital, and am told that this horrible Vet, Dr. Lawendy, was not present at all to bring our dog to them. Instead, she was reportedly put into the back of an SUV owned by the Vet Tech, on a VERY cold winter day, without her coat, blanket nor her overnight bag that had many good vitamins, holistic herbs and water and food in it for her. | NOTHING to keep my dog warm in the journey to dump off her dying body CAME WITH MY DOG. | She was haphazardly dumped off with the intake papers at the hospital stating that she was very “dehydrated” and in serious condition. | How does a beautiful, strong dog, after being in this Vet’s possession for 6 days, become dehydrated and get worse [and NOT ‘better’ like this lying Vet would state over the phone to placate me]. | NIGHTMARE. | This Vet is a grand manipulator. He is delusional, and will take you into his delusion and abuse you and your pet. He did this to me. | My dog, our beloved sweetheart, was dead within a few hours after she was dumped off at this 24 hour hospital when Dr. Lawendy clearly had gotten over his head and just wanted to pass the baton to someone else. | He later admitted to me, in a phone conversation after I was horrified at her death, he said he “knew he could do nothing more for her” ….BUT WHEN I ASKED WHY IN HECK DID HE NOT CALL ME TO TELL ME THIS INFORMATION AND GET MY DOG TO A REAL HOSPITAL…. he had nothing to say but more placating lies, very typical of the Narcissitic/Psychopathic personality disorder. | He takes no responsibility for the neglect he procured onto my dog. | He takes no responsibility for the lack of proper care for my dog, and to properly communicate honestly and professionally with the OWNER. | From the experience that I had in this horrifying time, Dr. Lawendy is clearly not a healthy person. | He caused my dog to get worse in his care, and does not care. He makes excuses and it is never his fault. Clearly, another Narcissistic/Psychopathic personality disorder trait. | My dog is dead. And I told him that he is 100% responsible for the abuse that caused her to get worse in his controlling, manipulative care. | The worst thing is not knowing how this wretched Vet treated my dog, and from what I saw when I finally got to the 24 hour hospital, I DID NOT RECOGNIZE MY DOG WHO WAS A LUMP OF CLAY ON THE FLOOR UNABLE TO LIFT HER HEAD. | I KNEW MY DOG WAS DYING. | I KNEW IT HAD BEEN A HORRIBLE 6 DAYS FOR HER. | I KNEW, WITHOUT A DOUBT, THAT THIS ARROGANT VET WAS A LIAR. | I KNEW THAT I HAD BEEN DENIED MY DOG, AND FROM SEEING HER, AND FROM EVEN VISITING HER, BECAUSE HE WAS INCOMPETENT BUT WANTED TO RUN UP A BILL WHILE MY DOG DESCENDED INTO A POINT OF NO RETURN AND GOT SICKER AND SICKER IN HIS NEGLECTFUL POSESSION. | This Vet has committed several crimes: | 1.) Stealing my dog, and refusing to give her back and refusing/obfuscating the ability to contact him or his mobile unit to see my dog/take her back. This is Theft. | 2.) Ignoring the direct orders of the Owner of the dog to NOT give her a very dangerous drug with known side-effects that actually CAUSE more problems for the ailing animal. | 3.) Lying, misleading the Owner of the dog. AND screening calls to avoid the Owner while he had possession of my dog. | 4.) Dishonestly telling me that he would send out her blood test to a specific Lab in California overnight to get a true diagnoses before doing anything, as per my direct orders. He NEVER SENT THE BLOOD TEST OUT, AND DOES NOT TELL THE OWNER THAT HE SKIPPED THIS IMPORTANT STEP IN MEDICAL CARE. | He later has the “excuse” [once again] that he “was busy” and “could not find a UPS store [with a chuckle]” …. Who finds this acceptable medical care? | 5.) Now, to add to the list of criminal activity on this Vet’s part, he takes the time to get to the Police in my town to manipulate them and file a report against ME, the innocent and rightfully angry Owner and Victim of his malpractice, and uses “Coercion” and “Intimidation” and outright creates a stupid, nonsensical parade of obfuscation with a CIVIL matter and not a police matter. | It is ME who needs to file a Police Report because he broke the law by stealing my dog, abusing me while having possession of my dog, and lying to me in order to keep possession of her. | 6.) I now have a Civil Action against this wretched, blindly arrogant individual. | 7.) I will now file a Complaint with the State Board for Disciplinary action. | And by the way, he has a record with the Board of being disciplined in the past. Not acceptable. | 8.) To boot, he did this very deadly behavior with another family, whom I have been in touch with. | This Vet is so stupid and disorganized that he mistakenly sent this other family’s law suit AGAINST HIM for abusing and neglectful behavior with their dog [who also ultimately died because of his malpractice. | This is a horrible story to tell. | But I hope that if my story can help another family and pet lover, then I believe it will have been a worthwhile Rip Off Report to save another animal from this horrible abuse.
