Wow. I should have done some research before buying a new family pet from here. But instead, because I am a trusting person and like to support local small businesses, I made the mistake of walking in with my husband and falling in love with the cutest puppy ever. We waited a few days and made the decision to purchase him if he was still there on Friday of last week. He was a surprise for our 3 young children. I felt better when the more personable owner(?) came up to check me out and explained their guarantee and boasted how they use great and local breeders. She said that if there were any congenital problems, they would need to hear directly from the vet while we were still in the office...the next day, his checkup went ok, but he had a hernia (congenital) but the doctor said that it may go away or they would just take care of it when we spayed him in a fews months.....we called Pet Village like they asked. I wasn t looking for monetary payback, I just wanted them to know that there were some issues with the litter. The response the vet tech and I got was by far the fastest, jump-to-conclusion and accusations i have ever experienced! She was so rude! It took me off guard, but i decided then and there that i would never buy anything from them again. He was great and very smart - even was going to the door to go out! Then on Tuesday, he started throwing up and his stool loosened up....I took him to the vet on Wednesday and they began treating him for Parvo, but they couldn t determine if he was positive because they were out of tests at the time. We brought him home and began SubCue fluids and antibiotics. The next day he wasn t eating and became very lethargic, so I took him to a different vet to have him tested, he was positive. He stayed overnight at the animal clinic and showed signs of improvement, so we were able to bring him home on Friday. Saturday, he woke up a little weak, but was walking and going out to potty. Saturday afternoon, he began falling over when we sat him down on the ground. We rushed him to the emergency vet that evening, and had to put him to sleep. It was heart-wrenching, to say the least. We spent $225 to buy him, over $300 in vet bills, and almost $300 at the emergency vet. I don t care about the money. What I care about is the fact that we now have to tell our 9, 8, & 5 yr olds that the puppy that we all fell in love with is now gone forever. He was 4lbs of spunk for the first few days, so he made a huge impact on all of us. What kills me is that the owners at Pet Village ONLY care about the profit that they make from selling these puppies that get sick after the guarantee period (which isn t worth the paper it s printed on) to people who fall in love with these precious beings. They don t care that there will be children who come home wanting to see their new puppy and have to have their hearts broken. The thing about Parvo is, is that it has an incubation period of 5-10 days. Bodey got sick on day 4 at our house, which means that he was infected at their facility. They do not care. Makes you wonder ~ what happens to the puppies there who get sick and they won t put out to sell?
