Broadway Cab Has No Love For Animals
On 3/31, after giving my dog, Popo, an anti-inflammatory chew she began to choke which turned into breathing trouble. Had we made it to the pet hospital sooner they would have been able to calm her down; this happened before. On this occasion, I called Broadway Cab to take us to Dove Lewis. The driver just drove on. I yelled, "Stop! My dog is dying! We need to go to the pet hospital." He said, "No dogs, I don't care." He drove off. I called the cab company again and complained, the dispatcher said, "You didn't say there was a dog." Nowhere on their website does it mention anything regarding dogs. With the first dispatcher I said I had an emergency and I needed to take my dog to the hospital. It took over 15 minutes for the next cab to arrive. It became too late as her lungs filled with fluid. At the hospital, I made the awful, heart wrenching choice of putting her to sleep. Even if it was her time, she was under incredible stress and was suffering greatly. Not to mention my stress at being helpless. How could someone drive off for a pet medical emergency? My dog was a beautiful Yorkie mix and quite small. I also had my pet carrier.
