My husband and I bought a puppy from Petland 2/12/06. On 2/16/06 I had to take her to an emergency vet visit. She could not walk and had a seizure. nShe was diagnosed with Coccidia, Kennel Cough, URI, and Low Blood Sugar. I asked if there was anything that we could have done or had in our house to make her sick. The vet said no, she would have been sick at the pet store. nI called Petland on 2/17/06 and asked the manager to refund my vet visit bill and she stated that she could not b/c we did not take her to the vet in Mecer Co. (This is an hour from our house) I explained that it was an emergency and our vet is only 10 min away. She finally agreed to refund the vet visit, only if I would bring the puppy to their vet. nThe vet in Mercer Co. told us that the puppy was too sick and we needed to take her back to the pet store. nThe manager said that she was going to send her to Virginia Tech for medical attention, so we left our puppy there. The next day, we called to check on her (after I started reading about pet store cruelty on the internet) and they said that they were just treating her there. nIt is now 3/12/06 and our puppy is still at the pet store. They keep telling us that we can get her on Tuesday (example) and then we we call they say that she has to stay until Friday, we call on Friday and they to wait until Monday. nI am very upset about this and I don’t know what to do. nIf someone could give me some advice, I would greatly appreciate it. nAleshianEccles, West VirginiaU.S.A.
