Petland/Petzone Deerfield Beach FL Complaint - They should not be in business - animals are sick
DEERFIELD BEACH, FLORIDA -- PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM THIS STORE.
Please do not even purchase your pet supplies from here – do not support them.
I typically, do not condone or promote buying from a puppy mill, pet store. Unfortunately, I saw my little baby and fell in love with her - I did not have the heart to leave her behind. I couldn’t bear the thought of her spending one more night in there.
To make a long story short, she was very ill the very next day, she also made my other 7 month old puppy very ill – we actually thought he was going to die. I have literally spent probably 70 to 80 % of my time over the last 30 days tending to both sick animals and running to and fro the vet. If I am not dealing with Diarrhea, vomiting, kennel cough, hacking coughing.. I am either on the phone with Petland complaints / legal department or on the phone with the vet.
My first puppy lost over a pound. The poor animal can’t even breathe half the time and has to constantly be in a nebulizer. It is so bad, that I can no longer be using up 2 hours of my day every single day, at the vet. We have built our own nebulizer box and are rotating the pups 3 times a day.
Firstly, PETLAND should never ever have sold me a sick dog. Secondly, they should never ever have charged me the $1000 plus that they did – in fact they wanted $1800 – OUTRAGEOUS. Thirdly, they really should be put out of business – period.
There are animals in there that are skin and bone – ribs sticking out. The store is kept at such a low temperature, you can see the poor pups physically shaking and shivering from the cold. They do not have blankets, they stand on wire floors – it is completely heartbreaking to be in there. I too, was told the pup was new to the store “and not “infected’ with the pet store environment” … absolute nonsense. The anxiety of the pup, when left alone or in a cage at home was heartbreaking.
PLEASE, of course the staff are friendly .. they make commissions - TRUST ME ... when I went back .. THEY WERE NOT FRIENDLY IN THE LEAST.
From my constant trips to the vet- I see all the other Petland/Petzone people walking in with their with their new puppies – only to see them again the next day and the day after … just like me – they too begin the cycle that I am in……….
It is completely unacceptable that a perfectly healthy puppy almost lost his life, is still very very ill and both pup have been on 8 different medications for 30 days. This puppy should not have gotten ill in the first place.
Please note that the recommended vet is amazing and is going over and beyond to help my two pups – his staff are amazing. I must stress – this is not a negative post about the recommended VET for PETLAND/PETZONE – but a negative about the pet store. If anyone would like to e mail me with questions – please feel free to do so .
I have videos of all the coughing, choking, sneezing, lots of pictures.
