Ok, I'm not sure how descriptive I'm allowed to get, but a certain pet superstore in Regina, Saskatchewan whose name starts with P and ends with "Land" has parvo running through their store and has not warned the public yet. (In Saskatchewan, the store legally has one week before telling anyone)

Coincidentally, they are having a puppy "blowout" :rolleyes: ...to get rid of the pups (that do not have their shots and are not isolated from other sick dogs)...they don't come with a health guarantee either so guess what happens to the poor chap who comes in and buys one, only to get it home and watch it develop parvo in the next couple days...you can only hope he/she doesn't have other puppies at home or in the neighborhood...

:eek: eep they're still letting customer's dogs come into the store too.

What is making my skin crawl is the fact that they do not have bleach towels/mats set up...so essentially, the parvo is spread throughout the store :yuck: .

If you're from Regina, or know anyone else from the area please tell them so their pet isn't put at risk...

Go to the media!!! The CBC is on strike but find the local CTV affiliate - or a newspaper (Star Phoenix in Saskatoon is usually good,. I may know someone there, if he is still there?). Gawd, what horrible ppl!!

I HATE pets stores that sell pets at all!
