Hi my name is Laurie and I'd like to share my recent experience.
On October 6, 2006 my sister bought to cockapoo puppies from Russo's at the Irvine Spectrum. On Sunday they were really sick with diarrhea every hour on the hour. We took the 2 beautiful puppies to my vet and they were diagnosed with Parasites and "Giardiasis" which is a sickness from drinking contaminated water. The puppies were given antibiotics from my vet and would start feeling better by 7 days or so. My sister was afraid for the puppies so took them back to Russo's with the medicine. She was told that the puppies would be quarantined (however you spell it) for 8 days and be examined by their vet...We have recently found out that one of puppies recovered and was sold this past weekend and the other puppy is still really sick. I honestly don't think they are treating this puppy, she should of recovered from "Giardiasis" by now. I asked why she was still sick and an employee told me "some puppies take longer than others"..
I feel so sad for these puppies who are so sick and honestly I again don't feel like they are giving them the proper treatment.
I wish someone out there would listen and investigate these puppy stores.
Thank you for listening.
