Complaint Review: Petland of Baton Rouge

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.
