    Default Update on bugzys health!

    About two weeks ago i posted a thread because i was concerned for Bugzys health. I had taken him to petco to get a basic bath and it went downhill from there. The following morning he woke up with green discharge, crying, and sleeping all day, no eating or drinking water he was like this for 3 days he couldnt walk up or down the stairs, couldnt lay on his side, he cried from the discomfort,i couldnt take it anymore to see him miserable. I took him to the vet they did 2 xrays on him and eye test to make sure no lacerations or simply shampoo irritated his eyes. He lost 6 pounds in 3 days. I got the results back from his xray thank God he didnt break or dislocate anything! But when at Petco the way they had him tied up caused him to sprain his neck, it swelled up, to the point it hurt him to even move it, i had also noticed his bark and cry was not the same, its like they yanked his leash so hard that it also messed up his doggy vocal chords!! i was so upset!!!! i felt horrible for taking him there in the first place, it was his first and last time....He has been on pain, and anti inflamatory meds and is reacting well to it, am sure he has gained his weight back by now,but he still acts very cautious about running or jumping! cant wait till his back to his normal self!!! annoying and all i miss it!!!

    So you are saying that when Petco groomed him they choked him while doing so and sprained his neck? Am I understanding this correctly? Poor Bugzy!!! is there anyway you can prove this? I would be throwing one huge fit and demanding my vet bill's paid for plus pain and suffering. But most of all Poor Bugzy!!!!

    Oh my goodness that is awful! Well I am happy to hear you got it figured out and he is on the mend. BUT did you talk to this Petco, they should be paying for your vet bills, well I think they should!

    Thank goodness you found out. Pls give hugs and kisses to that sweet boy of yours for us!
    Now go call Petco speak to a manager and complain. Yes, they should reimburse you for everything, including the bath!

    OMG that is too ****** unbelieveable!!! (Insert bad curse word of your choice!)

    I am soooo angry about that! I am sooo sooo sooo very sorry. Look at all you and Bugzy had to go through after getting a grooming! Poor sweet bully baby. I sure hope you take it up with the manager of Petco!

    That is so disgusting ... I am speechless!! What kind of place would half-strangle a dog whilst grooming him!!! I would take it up with the manager straight away, and if the manager wouldn't help me then I would insist on having the name of the regional manager, the divisional manager, and just for the hell of it the CEO of Petco!!

    Whoever did the shampoo should be relieved of their job. They mishandled Bugzy, they are doing the same with other dogs. I wonder if they had a camera going in the grooming area? You need to talk to PETCO. Good luck. Poor Bugzy is going to hate being bathed!

    I would swear that they have cameras in all the areas they handle a dog. I'd ask for the tapes or recordings of those cameras, if there are any, I know there's some all over common pet area's in petsmart, just was there for the first time, but don't know about petco.

    That is unbelievable, unforgivable and totaly uncalled for
    I hope Bugzy continues to make a full recovery and that he is not mentally traumatised by the whole experience
    Lots of love hugs and special attention for your little man...i hope you are going to take this further.

    this hurts my heart. i feel for Bugzy. you must inform Petco about this...i'm sure the same is happening to someone elses furbaby. i'm wondering if they have video footage also. not right AT ALL.

    *see...i know my instincts are right on, i have not been back to petsmart (had an appt. to have Bullet groomed a few weeks ago for the first time (since getting him) and freaked when they said i would need to leave him for 4 hrs!!! i thought i was going to browse the store and watch through the big glass wall while he was groomed right then). i just can't imagine the possibility of him being tramatized for 4 hrs.
