  1. Don't get me wrong here, I love my pet's and all animals; I'm just being devil's advocate for a second. That floor was slippery, the dog has 3 legs, he may have gotten excited and tried to run and then slipped – dogs do that. How in the world does that lady know that her dog doesn't have a preexisting condition for back problems? Do people normally have cat scans and/or MRI's done on their pet's as a general practice to see if there are problems if there is no need for it? Why would she think that her dog would never get a bulging disc in his back?! ?

  2. I've been working at shelters, daycares, and kennels for the past 6 years. This looks like the employee was trying to leash the dog and it got away and slipped. What am I missing here? Dogs slip out of leashes and collars all the time when they are excited or in an area they don''t know. I don't understand what the employee did wrong

  3. To start the treadmill is unsuitable for animals !!! So if the owner of a Day Care does not know this, he should close the doors of the establishment.

  4. Even veterinairians abuse. A female vet in St. Joe Co. Ind. has been accused of horrible treatment of animals, wrong or unneeded meds & things done without owners permission, charges made by employees.

  5. They should have to psy her every dollar she has spent on that dog & extra for hers & the dogs suffering. They should B ashamed & shut down!

  6. Burn em down. Push me till they close. These people are assholes. How dare they do this to a dog. Assholes.

  7. I just can’t leave my dog at some place and go on vacation. I’ve never live with myself if something happened to her.

  8. Them people is some sorry ass bitches hope they get sued and shut down never allowed to have animals in their homes they need to go do time for what they did and pay everyone of those dogs dog's that got hurt and killed while in their care you all some bitches hope you get every thing you deserve Hate you people

  9. I have seen dogs punched, kicked, thrown..all at reputable groomers and kennels. Anuse is ALWAYS present even at "good" establishments. Don't board or groom.

  10. the fact that TWO dogs that died from heat stroke within two weeks is disgusting! however, the woman with the pitbull just wants someone to blame. the entire event was filmed on video, and the employee did nothing wrong. the dog sprinted away and slipped. thats it. idk how or why anyone would think thats abuse. still would never take my dog there, but that employee doesn’t deserve any blame
