I purchased a miniature pinscher from Petland on Siegen Lane in Baton Rouge La.  I payed #1000.00 for the puppy. He was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection the day after I purchased him.  We took him for breathing treatments for three weeks.  My lunch hours were spent returning the pup to Petland for treatment.

I took him to my own vet shortly after the treatments because he had a little spot on his head.  Petland said the spot was from playing with other pups.  My vet did a skin scrape and found that he had mange.  The treatment was very expensive and the mange is incurable.  He will alway carry the disease.  Therefore, I had the dog neutered.

We still have this dog and he is on a special diet because he weights 36 pounds.  Rick at Petland basically told us "tough".  My vet sent a reference page to prove that the dog had genetic defects (Mange) but Petland did not care.  I had an attorney send a certified letter and Rick (the owner) said to sue him.  He would not honor the warranty that he provided on the puppy.   

Do not buy any pets at this place.  They buy from puppy farms and they sell sick, poor quality animals.

Shut Petland down!

AUTHOR: Theresa - (United States of America)

Please read my report filed against Petland. I had the exact same situation. The bs breathing treatments and everything. I purchased two puppies. I paid over $3000 for each. One of my English Bulldogs was sick and also with Mange. He is no longer with us. My female is now four years old and thankfully she's fine so far. There is no cure for this. It is the heridatary and the result of irresponsible breeding. Also you may want to read the ex Petland employee's post. Quite shocking.

I recently found out that Petland gets their puppies from puppy mills. I advise everyone to sign the Humane Society of the United States petition to shut Petland down. Get everyone and anyone you can to sign it. I feel guilty that I ever contributed to the problem. This is the cause of unawareness. Please spread the word. If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Here's the link:
